This morning we stopped by a toy store to see Elmo. It was actually an Elmo impostor, but we weren't expecting the "real" Elmo. ;) Lauren was checking him out while in line, but when he put his arms out for her she wanted to run the other way. Baba scooped her up for a quick photo op and once she sat down on his lap next to Elmo, she went in for a kiss. I guess he wasn't quite as scary in the safety of Baba's lap.
She loved Elmo's Restaurant (the toy on the page above). It's kind of like a kitchen, but with a register to ring up the food sales. I'm going to start shopping for a kitchen for Christmas...she would love that. Does anyone have one they really like? I'd love to hear about it.
