^^Emmet and his bison at three months old^^
We bought Emmet this bison when he was just about 2 months old. I long ago decided that Emmet would love bison (because I love them, duh). His room is loosely bison themed and he has several bison art prints. I designed our bison baby product line for him and forced this stuffed bison onto him with the hopes that he would one day love it. For a long time we took it to day care and home each day to snuggle with him at night, but I eventually gave up my dreams that it would be Emmet's best friend. We continued taking it to day care, but it stayed in his bag and didn't come inside.
The other day though I went to take Emmet out of the car on our way back from work/daycare and when I started to unbuckle him he whined. He had been sitting there happily chewing on his bison's foot the whole drive home and didn't want to stop. It's foot was completely soaked through but I managed to unbuckle him without hindering his chewing and carried him in to the house, him still holding on to his bison, soaking each food and eventually it's face with his slobbery kisses for the next hour or so. I think it is finally love. Or perhaps it could be that his two front teeth are finally coming in... its hard to say exactly which it is.
