Sosi would like you to meet one of her bestest buddies, Shakey the Octopus. He hangs above her on her play mat and makes the most marvelous rattling noises when she smacks him (still pretty much only on accident, as far as we can tell). When she looks him straight in the face, she smiles! Andrew took Shakey off of his hanger and made him kiss Sonia, and she grinned like a little goofball. She loves Shakey! Too bad she looks a little somber in this picture. She kept smiling right after I took each picture, and eventually I just gave up trying to capture her goofy Shakey-induced happy face.
