When I was pregnant for Maxwell, and shortly after we moved to Los Angeles, I visited a baby boutique in Santa Monica called Giggle. I’ll admit it, I was itching for some cute itty bitty baby stuff to buy for our sweet Babe ;) I was hardly past my first trimester, maybe 15 or 16 weeks, but I needed to buy something. I had a few requirements — I wanted something unique and I wanted it to be orange. As a kiddo I had a lovey I carried around with me. His name was Smoochie and he was a puppy with a rattle in the tail. Ohhh, he was my absolutely favorite stuffed animal! By the time I grew up, Smoochie was so worn and well-loved that he was actually missing patches of fur.
Now that Maxwell is a little bit older — he’s 9-weeks by the way, tear!, and is starting to grab at things/kick around, I wanted to see how he’d respond to having a lovie of his own. At first he didn’t seem to be interested [see the above photos, he’s more interested in the ceiling fan, ha!] but now that a few days have passed since first introducing him to Bunny he is totally loving it. He holds on tight, winks at Bunny, and puts Bunny’s ears in his mouth. It’s so adorable, sooo completely adorable. I hope this is just the beginning of a lifelong friendship :)
Maxwell + his orange bunny, they’re the cutest pair around!
