Sophie's (current) #1 Fear
This is Sophie's #1 fear. I don't even know what one of these is called. This thing lives in our big bookshelf, the same bookshelf where Sophie's toys also reside.
The mere sight of this thing makes her clingy (as pictured), and the sound of it makes her cry the saddest scared cry in all of Babyland (no picture. I'm not going to make her cry).
I'm not quite sure what makes her so afraid of it, but I've never seen her act like this before. If someone touches it, Sophie is immediately on the move - breathing hard and heading toward the closest parent she can find. I'm thinking about storing it away for a while and seeing if she forgets about her fear.
