Siennalee loves her friends. Especially friends who have moveable heads. Take Pink Giraffe, for example. They have many heart to hearts and share many snacks.
I secretly believe this is because Sienna knows Pink Giraffe is listening to her.

He always pays attention to whatever is important to her.

He's also quite affectionate.

He certainly seems to enjoy her wet smooches.

And Pink Giraffe is by nature quite a curious pink creature.

He hangs out and waits until she's done with whatever business is important at the moment.

He's confident she'll tell him all about her newest discoveries in due time. (Note how he's attentively listening to her explain whatever it is that she and Daddy are reading on the 'puter.)

Here they are preparing for an adventure.

He's telling her something in this shot. (Probably that he prefers to ride in front - why should Orange One Baby always get to ride in the front?) There are two ways you can tell that Pink Giraffe is talking to Siennalee: 1st, her mouth is open and her eyebrows are up, indicating a high pitched voice is needed for whatever animal is talking at the moment, and 2nd, Pink Giraffe's head is moving (that's the big giveaway).

And they're off!
(Note the other friends just lying around. Are they sleeping? Are they playing dead? If only they talked to the adults. We'd love to know.)

The cart has stopped for a quick bite. Here you meet Orange One Baby. She seems to be the regular favorite and always gets to ride in the front of the cart. Orange One Baby is a castoff of Isabella's from long ago when Sienna was first noticing baby dolls. We think Orange One Baby got her name from when Siennalee was first learning to recognize colors and orange was her first favorite color to pick out. Orange One Baby has an orange-ish head, so... there you go.

This is Moo. Siennalee has had him since she was itty bitty. He was a baby shower gift from Alicia. You can't see his face here, because he's looking at Siennalee, but rest assured he is very, very cute. (We're not positive he's a boy, but that seems to be the pronoun regularly used for him, so until somebody gets up the nerve to do a more thorough investigation, Moo is a "he.") Moo's currently the bedtime baby that regularly accompanies Siennalee to bedtimes. (I secretly believe he keeps her awake at times. But that's a pink boy cow for you.)

This camera and I are still getting to know each other. I also have a variety of factors warring against me in this photo sequence: Low light, a toddler who's faster than the camera lens - you get my drift.
But blur or no blur, you can see Moo is quite beloved.

And here's MY favorite little friend to squeeze and smooch.

I like this a lot! The raised eyebrows are too cute. What kind of stuffed animal is that giraffe? (Leave it to me to ask details about toys....)
So Josiah also saw this post. He really likes reading your blog. He didn't want to leave his own comment this time but he did tell me that it looks like you had your house designed. (That's probably his highest compliment about a house. He loves watching design and landscape shows.)
