Aunt Aubrey gave Lydia a special toy for Christmas this year. As fun as her hokie pokie Elmo is, Austin and I are afraid that Lydia likes it a little too much. She's already figured out how to turn it on all by herself, a discovery that we're not terribly excited about. The darling neighbor girls love Elmo and dance with him, which makes Lydia laugh. Super cute - but a person can only handle so much Elmo in one day. I let Lydia play with him for about 10 minutes a day and then I tuck him away in a place where she won't find him. We'll see how long this ingenious solution lasts. She gets more mobile and determined every day!
