Happy Hippo Pull Toy

This wooden pull toy was a gift from our friend Jen, and you can find it at the Olliebollen website (although the hippo there is much more purple than the actual toy). This will be the first element of the nursery, a project I’m putting off as long as possible because it requires that we empty that room of all the junk that has collected there over the last year and a half. Also, I’m planning to wallpaper one wall, and it’s going to take at least four months to talk Jon into taking on that particular task. Since I’m the one carrying the baby I THINK IT’S THE LEAST HE COULD DO.
