Here's to Turtle

Yep, it's been a year since the lime green sea turtle entered the Kebodeaux family. 
Our 5 month old baby had her first trip to the aquarium and spotted it across the souvenir shop. I really didn't even want to buy him, but she went so nuts over him I had no choice, really. Glad we did, he's been her best friend ever since. 
Here she is at the aquarium. Yes I'll call myself out for putting something ugly on her head.
and there he is the evening we brought him home...
look how shiny and soft he looks.
He was there for her 6 month shots.
He was there when she learned how to sit up.
Turtle took a back seat.
"TuhTuh" was her 3rd word.
He was a partner in crime.
He was there when she learned to walk.
He's good for lots of cuddles.
Turtle made it to her first birthday party. 
and he was even featured on the birthday girl's cake. 
Turtle gets dirty. 
and of course he stayed behind the scene at Nanny's wedding.
He goes swimming.
and he even gets yummy breakfasts. 
We love you little turtle.

Happy Birthday @ ya.

  3. Cutest post ever.

    About how often does Turtle get washed? I only ask, because my sons Lovey is... well its disgusting, haha. I don't wash it nearly enough, mostly because I can't stand dealing with him when Lovey is out of his sight.

    This post makes me want to go out and get a Lovey Turtle for my babies, hee hee.
