She Loves Sophie

After catching up on the latest chapter of my "What to Expect The First Year" book, I recently realized that by month three, my baby girl should be smiling back at family members, turning towards bright colors, and reaching and grasping for objects.  The first of the two definitely get a check, and in fact, our Waverly Maye is so animated that I am fairly sure she has been smiling at us since two weeks of age.  And while she has also been reaching at objects (most notably my long hair) for quite a while now, it wasn't until this past week that she officially grabbed on to her first toy.

Yes, for me it was one of those big moments ... moments that I have come to realize are beginning to happen more everyday.  I can't believe how much she has developed in just three short months, or how proud I could actually be to see my daughter grab onto something for the first time.

I guess I have "Sophie the Giraffe" to thank for Waverly's monumental development, or maybe the Message Boards at Baby Center for telling me of her greatness.  It was this 7-inch rubber giraffe that Waverly has grown quite fond of that she grabbed onto for the first time.  And although I questioned it's $19.00 price upon initially hearing of the product, and really didn't understand the wonder of Sophie, I would buy it over again after seeing how much she loves it.  Actually, I just might have to as our dog seems to love Sophie just as much as she does ... especially when she squeaks when squeezed.

Sophie the Giraffe - Can be purchased at Babies-R-Us for $19.00.

  1. We followed the trend on baby center too and got Sophie for my little guy. He loves it and was one of the first things he grabbed for as well. We just bought the o-ball rattle yesterday and he loves it even more! Very easy to grasp and suck on.
