It has been a while since I have updated this blog. Although new material presents itself daily, it is hard to keep up with my "man journal." Today I would like to address someone that is truely special to our family; Simon's dear friend Hippo. Emily and I noticed that in an ever growing number of pictures, there is a small blue friend hidden within.
Hippo was a gift given to Vance, who never was interested in the plush blue rattle toy. It went into a box and was brought out for Simon. For some reason, Simon has become quite fond of him. Here are some pictures and a video of Hippo and Simon.
It has gotten to the point where they are inseparable. Thank goodness for e-bay, we now have three since he goes everywhere and gets dirty. It has a rattle inside so you always know where Simon is.
