E has taken an extra special interest in marine animals within the last year, especially dolphins. And has hopes of opening an oceanarium here in our small town when she grows up. So when I came across the nearly 4 foot stuffed dolphin on Melissa & Doug's online store I just knew she'd freak out! She lugs this thing from room to room with her talking to it (she's it's trainer, of course), and requests to snuggle up next to it in bed, which makes for fairly tight sleeping quarters as you can imagine.
N hasn't been able to demonstrate any real affection for any of his gifts, but there are a few things that repeatedly catch his eye:
This sweet little picnic basket is full of friendly faces on soft food items that jingle, rattle and crinkle as well!
*again shaky camera work as I'm lugging the baby too, sorry.

Anyhow, what should appear in my inbox one cold and rainy morning at the end of last week? A Congratulations e-mail saying I had won a very sweet handmade doll and it would arrive shortly!
Not something I would have probably purchased, but something that I think is kinda great; A Nelson Mandela doll. Just read about it:
This Nelson Mandela doll isn't just cuddly, it also pays tribute to the anti-Apartheid leader and first elected black president of South Africa. Children are never too young to learn about peace and justice and each purchase provides skill training and employment in post-Apartheid South Africa. Like all Global Goods products, these dolls are fair trade, eco-conscious and individually handcrafted. Global Goods is a not-for-profit working to empower women, alleviate poverty and promote social justice.
He arrived today and I put him up on N's shelf, and if he's as inquisitive as his older sister, we have a conversation coming.
*Thank you Babble, what a lovely early Christmas present!

Sorry the camera work is a bit shaky, N was strapped to my chest and he's a bit of a wiggle worm...
