Favorite Things

It’s fun to start seeing Dinah’s preferences emerge, as her personality and tastes evolve more and more.  In some ways she’s a typical baby, and in some ways she’s a little quirky.  Sometimes her preferences change as her mood changes, but there are some consistent favorites. 
Meet the Love Bug. 

She occasionally plays with other toys, but this is her absolute favorite.  When I offer it to her, her eyes light up, and she waves her little arms and reaches for it.  

She stares at it...

and jabbers to it, and of course, sticks it in her mouth.  It’s so much fun to see her reaction to it, and how much she enjoys playing with it. 

Another favorite:  the changing table

I’m not really sure why she loves the changing table, but she does.  She can be upset and crying, and when you lay her on the changing table, she stops crying and starts smiling.  I’m wondering if it has to do with the fact that she hates having a wet or dirty diaper, and she knows that’s the place where her discomfort goes away.  Whatever the reason, I find it amusing.  I think another reason she likes the changing table is that it gives her the opportunity to play with another favorite toy…

Her feet. 
She looks at, and jabbers to, and chews on her feet, much like her beloved Lovebug.  She prefers to play with her feet when they’re bare, though.  Socks just get in the way.
