Every tree limb overhead seems to sit and wait, while every step you take becomes a twist of fate.
Up on the watershed, standing at the fork in the road...

Sophie. Giraffe.

Does anyone have a Sophie the Giraffe you can loan me or sell to me used? I realize these giraffe/squeaky toys lose their use after teething ends so am hoping to find one gathering dust at someone's house that I can bring to Ethiopia to woo Baby D with.

US: "Looky here D - oooh, a squeaky giraffe you can chew on!"

D thinking to self: "Um, isn't that a dog toy? Why are they trying to impress me with a dog toy?!"

US: "No, we swear. It is THE toy to have in France if you are a gummy drooling baby."

Sounds ludicrous I know, but look it up online. It is beloved by the littles far and wide. And I saw one in action last week. I'm impressed.

Still don't want to spend $20+ on one. And I have one week to figure this out. So if yours is not chewed to pieces and is gathering drooly dust somewhere please let me know.

  1. We have two. PM me your address and I will put the cleaner of the two in the mail!! (JK - they are VERY easy to clean and disinfect -- just don't get water in the hole or it'll lose its voice!) Enjoy!
