Bunnies and Moose

The other day I counted how many stuffed animals Jacob has.  Answer: Twenty.  For an eight-month-old child, that’s kind of a lot.  But after celebrating his birth, baptism, first Christmas, and first Easter as the only grandchild/great nephew in our family, I’m not too surprised by the number.

What does surprise me is that certain species of animals are represented more often than others.

Take the following chart:

You’ll note that almost half of Jacob’s toys are either bunnies or moose.  There are a couple of dogs and a couple of monkeys, but otherwise, there’s pretty much one of each animal.

Maybe it’s because we live in Brooklyn and our families are from suburban New Jersey, where seeing bunnies (and deer, robins, and turkeys) is a daily occurrence.  And a lot of our family and friends travel often to New England, thus the moose.

Whatever the case, one thing is for sure:  this city kid will be no stranger to woodland creatures.

  1. Hey Lindsay! Eliora also has an inordinate amount of bunnies, closely followed by–of all things–elephants. Go figure!

  2. My two year old twins have waaay to many toys. There’s enough of it to be spread throughout the house! 😉

  3. I LOVE the pie chart! Haha you are too funny!
