Love At First Sight: Sadie and Robby

We were trying to pass the time while waiting to go to lunch today and my husband and I took Sadie into a small local toy store to look around. I love the store because it has lots of low tech toys that require actual imagination. When you walk in you see Radio Flyer bicycles and tricyles and they usually have those Radio Flyer pedal cars (although they were sold out today). There are doll houses and toy horses and stuffed animals and tons of wooden toys, along with hundreds of other items. Sadie saw what she wanted the moment we walked in the store though.

She only had eyes for Rody.

I think Rody (who we've named Robby, which is the name of Sadie's cousin, two uncles and her Grumpa) will be one of those toys that she looks back on fondly in twenty years. It reminded me of a rocking horse that I had (although the rocking horse was brown and fabric) and while we hadn't planned on buying anything, we left the store with Robby.

The horse was between two bicycles in the store and Sadie spent the entire time we were there trying to move them to get to Rody.

When we got home she repeatedly kissed his nose, patted his back and ears and tried to shove me away any time I touched him to steady her. And of course, they "galloped" slowly across the room together. I think she's in love... It's only a matter of time before she's horse crazy.
