He started to love animals a few months ago. He's always appreciated a quick snuggle with something soft, like really quick, but recently he made friends with his animals. When you go to take him out of his crib it oftentimes turns into quite the ordeal. Currently he sleeps with all of these each night, and loves them all: A duck, 3 dogs, 2 bunnies, 1 crab, 1 lion, 1 bear, 1 fish, and 1 monkey. Before he will get out of his crib he stands there and picks up each of his animals one by one (or directs you which animal to pick up one by one) and calls them all by name or sound. Then we have to take them into the living room with us, and of course his blanket is right there too.
I think he first showed his love to the duck duck, but really the love flowed with the bear from aunt Alli for Christmas. He just growls when he refers to him. The dog that I think Grandma Barbara got Tuck from a garage sale has recently become a close tie if not winner for the favorite animal. He has three dogs. One he calls big dog, little dog and the other one just dog. I think they make going to bed a lot more fun because ever since he started making friends with them he rarely cries when we put him down for a nap or for the night.
