Victory!

One of Ellery's favourite toys is this ugly little stuffed animal that someone had shoved into a gift bag along with an outfit. From the tags I could see that it came from Ikea - but I figured it was hideous, and didn't think she would probably ever play with it.
Wrong! The kid loves this little mutant animal! It looks sort of like an alligator - but I've been calling it Dottie the dragon, and my grandma thought it was a bird (I have NO idea how she came up with that - it has a snout!), but needless to say, Ellery gets excited every time she sees it.
Lately she's been opening and closing her hands really quickly when she gets excited, and has been working very hard to coordinate her hands to grab things she wants. She's managed to grab a few things already, and was especially proud of herself when she managed to grab Dottie last week...
Oh, hello Dottie!

You sneaky bugger, just how am I going to get my hands on you?

Haha! Too slow you silly dragon/alligator/lizard/bird!

Look! I've gotten hold of Dottie!

I'm just going to give her a little kiss...

...or chew her head off instead!

Fantastic photos! Reminds me of the first time we put Sophie in a frilly dress. She looked beautiful for about 5 seconds, then the lace was in her mouth, sucked, chewed, dribbled on...

Dotty looks lovely, don't know what you are talking about!
