Year 2 Day 226: The Love Affair Begins...
This is Ryan's newest friend, Sophie the Giraffe and as you can see they clearly enjoy a good snog. Since he has been having such a hard time with teething, we decided to make this purchase as Sophie has gotten many positive reviews for soothing sore teething gums.
Sophie has been around for quite some time apparently -- since 1961 in fact. She is made in the French Alps with natural rubber and non-toxic "food" paint. The best part is, she squeaks when you squeeze her. Some may think she is a glorified dog-toy, but not Ryan. This boy is in loooove!
After two and a half years in a long-distance relationship, I packed my life of 29 years into 21 boxes and moved to England to marry and be with my husband, Matt. Now I'm reveling in the youth of my 30s in Great Britain, supply-teaching in primary schools near Birmingham and enjoying newlywed life, being a mommy, and all the surprises they bring!
