"If you touch the animals, they come alive."
Sophie, the most independent 16 month old.
I promise that we were re-interpreting the statue behind us.
"Lions and tigers and bears, OH MY!"
Ava loved "Taylor" so much that she had to hold his hand... The entire time.
(I wasn't even jealous.)
Sophie was teething and this is the only thing Ava would touch, the fur.
The animals didn't come alive... Success!
