Life is Good Man, Life is Good






Like I said, Connor loves anything that's soft. We were in Sam's club on Friday and were just walking around (does anyone else do things like this just to get out of the house?). We were walking down the isle with all the Christmas stuff (yes, it's already come out) and we found two huge boxes with the softest stuffed animals we have felt in a long time. To make it even better, each animal is about 3 ft long--ah, the perfect match for a little boy who loves dogs and softness. I put Connor right in the thick of it. He looked as if he had floated away on a cloud to heaven...float, float, float. He was so happy, he just stuck his thumb in his mouth and gave little contented coos and sighs as he sunk deeper and deeper into his heaven of softness. I tried to pull him out a few times and he resisted. He also resisted me putting him back on top of the pile. Oh no, he wanted to be covered, in the middle. He didn't even want me to hold one of the arms up so he could, oh I don't know, breathe! I called my Mom and talked to her for a while to pass the time. We were there for a good 20 min I would say. My Mom joked that if he fell asleep and took his nap there I could go get a book, a drink, a camp chair and pull up next to him for a little R&R.:) Huh, Sam's really does meet all our needs....

Oh that is so cute! I would love a stuffed animal my size, too! Of course, if it was my size, it would probably weigh too much to carry around. Oh well. Enjoy it while you can, I guess.

That's so funny! What a cutie pie! You should have jumped in there with him! You both could have taken a nap.
