When we were in Switzerland we were introduced to Sophie la Girafe, a 40 year old favorite toy for babies. What makes her so appealing is that her long neck and limbs are easy to grasp and chew on, and the rubber feels great on little gums. And, she has a cute squeak. So, of course, we bought one for Donovan. And he loved her. In fact, she was so well-loved that her body grew a few shades darker over time, and the color on her cheeks was eventually rubbed away.
Though I don't think I noticed just how much time changed her till we pulled out a brand-new Sophie for Quinn.
