Show and Tell #6 - (8.28.09)

QUACK, QUACK, QUACK, QUACK, QUACK.....This weeks Show and Tell item has been a part of Emerson's life since she was about 3 months old.  This yellow duck was given to her by Mimi and Birdie.  As a baby she loved the soft duck and the "quack, quack" sound it made.  She would laugh and laugh at it.  When she got a bit bigger, Danny and I used it as a coax to try to get her to start rolling over....she would do anything to get to that duck!!  As a toddler it was used in a professional photography session to make Emerson a bit less nervous and to hopefully bring some smiles to her face.  We have ceased playing with the duck as much as we used to but when Emerson heard that familiar "Quack, Quack" noise this morning....I think it all came back to her because she was grinning from ear to ear and now that she can talk, she affectionately said, "My Ducky!!!" .....maybe the duck won't get put into the baby toy tupperware quite yet.
