Aurora had a great time discovering the interesting things this magnifying glass would do to her face. The fact that we laughed at her and ran for the camera didn't hurt either. The child is a born ham.
Our newest friend was slightly more interested in eating it than looking through it by the time I got there with the camera, but he was the one who started the trend and he had some awesome nose-squishing going on too.
Isn't he adorable? One of the most fun aspects of this business is the fact that when we have a space, it can fill at any time with somebody we weren't expecting. We have a few pregnant ladies who plan to bring us their babies in the next few months, and we've been talking them up and telling the kids about the new babies who will be coming, but we also had one more spot that hadn't been filled. Last Wednesday morning we got a call out of the blue and bam, fresh new pumpkin boy started that day. Love it. Keeps things new and exciting. And oh my, the boy is CUTE.
Based on first day behavior, I was thinking his blog name should be Abu, as in Aladdin's friend, "aqui, monkey boy", or possibly Tarzan or Taz. :) His momma suggested Taz as well. Thankfully he doesn't seem to be climbing near as much now that he's settling in and learning our rules. He's a cheerful boy, which is fabulous since he's at an age that is sometimes hard to start a new place. I think I'll give it another few days before we lock into a name for him- I like to explore all the options.
