Liam has a favorite toy: his cow stuffed animal which came with an adorable children's book: I Udderly Love You. He will play with this toy for over 30 minutes at a time, remarkable for his 2 month old attention span... He likes to look at it from different angles, pull on its tail, suck on its ears, and stroke its side. And he talks to it. What fun.
Grandma and Grandpa Hall gave him this mobile, which he is finally noticing and really loving! It plays surprisingly good music (hurray!): rainforest sounds, Bach, Beethoven, and Mozart. I've been surprised by how much Liam loves to listen to music. Neither Gabe or I are particularly interested in music. Take it or leave it, it really doesn't matter much to us either way. Actually, I often prefer silence. Not so for Liam. His grandparents also gave him two sets of children cds, which we listen to every time I change his diaper. We also dance to the music sometimes. He loves it. When he is fussy in the car we turn on the music: Johnny Cash seems to be his favorite.
