naomi and melvin

I have this thing about naming all of Naomi's toys. This cute giraffe that she is holding (from Holly) is named Melvin. Naomi loves Melvin but I think it's just anything with bright colors that makes noise right now. She loves to stare straight into Melvin's eyes. Melvin has two cousins that Naomi also hangs out with...Gina and George. She also has Sonnie to play with and Terri the Turtle. Why must I name her toys? I'm not sure, but it sure is easier to say, "hey, where's Melvin?" than, "where is that noisy multi-colored giraffe?" Melvin is a special giraffe, his whole name is Melvin the Counseling Giraffe. Naomi tells Melvin all her problems and he's a good listener. Thanks Melvin, for being a good friend for Naomi and thank your cousins too...she loves spending time with them. Can't wait till she can play with real friends...friends that she can't stick in her mouth or throw around. The day will come. First let's work on rolling over!

I know how you feel about naming toys. Maddie's lovey, an elephant is bob. Emma just got her own lovey today we named it bill. So we have bill and bob, an elephant and a giraffe.

time for who to have another baby? You mean you're ready already? The twins are only 5 1/2 months old. But hey, if you're ready I won't stand in your way! HA! I thought I'd beat Naomi to the punch and name them for her. She can rename them later if she wants. Or by that time she'll have different toys to name on her own!

Jamie I'm glad that Naomi likes her giraffe so much. Guess Andrew picked out a good toy for his cousin. He has good taste.
