Actually, that's a lie. I didn't really consult her or even ask her about this. She just told me with her face. So now I'll tell you.
What Babies Like:
Monkeys. Particularly hanging over their changing tables. And extra-particularly if the baby also has coordinating monkey jammies in which to "play" with their amazing and hilarious monkey toy.
Please note the blur at the bottom of these photos. That is because monkey toys are so amazing that they cause baby legs to flail and kick at approximately the speed of light. And you can't even imagine what kind of facial expressions monkey toys cause.
Well, now you know.
In conclusion, babies (or at least this baby) like monkeys. Do the baby in your life a favor and get them a monkey for Christmas. This particular monkey came from a yard sale, so...feel free to go pre-loved with your monkey toy. It gets the Millie Stamp of Approval.
What Babies Do Not Like:
Dolls. Dolls turn babies into cannibals, apparently. Or maybe zombies. Hard to tell.
And then they cause babies to make sad and distressed faces.
In conclusion, Millie suggests that you stick to monkeys. She certainly plans to, but you can draw your own conclusions:
P.S. Not to hijack Millie's post, but I figured since she's helped YOU make a tough decision, now maybe you can help me. Matt and I are trying to decide between Google Chromecast* and Amazon Fire TV Stick*. Anyone have experience with either (or both)? Yall were extremely helpful during the Great Highchair Debate, so I figured maybe someone had equally passionate feelings about this get-your-computer-onto-your-TV situation...lemme know if you have any thoughts!
P.P.S. Millie also recommends baths. And she says you're just doing it wrong if you don't follow baths with a hooded cat towel.
