Keepin' up with the Joneses

As anyone who is having a baby, had a baby, or is shopping for a baby knows, baby buying is BIG business! As Regan often says, the money we used to spend going out for drinks or nice dinners is now spent on WHATEVER will make Keira happy and not cry. We try very hard to buy used or on sale, accept hand me downs and stay away from fads. And it was working; until we met Sophie. Her supple orange neck and come hither legs were too much to resist.

Sophie is a Giraffe. And apparently, Sophie is filled with baby crack.
Sophie is a 40 year old toy hailing from Switzerland and it is a must have for all the coolest babies in teething land. We were skeptical but the hundreds of 5 star reviews on the internet coupled with the sleepless nights and screaming fits due to K teething sent us flying to the store for one. And for the low low price of $19.99, she was ours. Possibly the most expensive toy to ever grace your child's mouth (actually, considering they put everything in their mouths, this isn't true. But possibly the most expensive toy ever DESIGNED to go in your child's mouth).
However, we are now converts. She immediately lit into Sophie and has been chewing on her for days now. She will even hold Sophie herself. Halleluah!
So to all those aunties and uncles out there - buy this for the next child in your life. The parents will praise your name!
K enjoying a nosh on Sophie's leg - her fave body part.

And for fun, some other fun photos of K over the past few weeks:
K Showing Daddy how she likes to stand.

K has also discovered her feet this week and likes to suck on her big toes now.

More tongue action, plus bonus baby arm rolls.

Mommy playing with the black and white function on her camera.
I think it makes her eyes stand out nicely :)

Keira is 3 months, 2 weeks and 3 days old


  1. Hey I think that's the giraffe one of the Dads (Tome Selleck?) buys the baby on 3 Men and a Baby!
    That's a lot of moo-lah for a giraffe, but if it makes her happy...and you guys happy too... :)
    She's beautiful! I just love the tongue pic! :)

  2. Ah!!!!! You beat me to it! I was going to post on Sophie!!! Great review, and it should convert everyone out there!
