Annabelle's New Love

We were in Murdoch's the other day and they had rabbits for sale. Now, just for a little background, last time we were there they had baby chicks. We thought it would be fun to show them to Annabelle and she had a minor meltdown. Just the sound of them would scare her from across the store. So we weren't really hopeful that she would like the rabbits. Well it took her a minute to assess the situation but then she was hooked. She loves rabbits! She refused to leave the bins they were in. She just kept saying "Cute Wabbits". It was adorable. She even started calling one Peter (Peter Rabbit). She did not want to stop petting them and talking to them. She was quite sad when we finally had to leave the store and we weren't taking one with us! If we weren't having a new baby and moving in the next month we may have gotten one. I'm thinking that might be a good birthday gift if we're all settled again. I guess we'll just have to see. She may not even like them anymore by then!

So when we got home Josh went through Annabelle's toy closet and found 3 stuffed animal rabbits. She has picked this white one as her favorite.

It has gone everywhere with her: Down to the mailbox, Wal-Mart, Naptime, Bedtime, etc... Even when she woke me up to take her potty in the middle of the night, there was her rabbit sitting on the counter watching. She cracks me up! Here it is watching a show with her.
And here she is showing me how much she loves her rabbit. She is just too cute....I LOVE my big girl!

Last fall the same thing happened at our house, except with Jeremy. He saw the bunnies at the county fair and wanted one. I got him a Webkins rabbit for Christmas which he doesn't even take care of anymore.

Smart little girl...Rabbits are much better than chicks. Chicks spread Salmonella and we always have these idiot parents who thought they would be a great easter gift until their kid ends up really sick!

That's so cute! Good thinking on your part, finding a stuffed rabbit that she already had! oh, I miss seeing annabelle and she sounds so grown up. I know she's going to be a very loving and helping big sister. :)

Good luck with your delivery- can't wait to see the new little girl! With the look of your belly pics you last posted, I'm pretty sure you'll be walking out of there skinnier than before you got prego! I'm so jealous of how little you look!!

Anyway- I guess by the time you'll read this you'll probably already have that cute little one in your arms, so Congratulations!!
