I bought Keenan a doll yesterday. I know a lot of you will be shocked and some think that dolls are strictly "girl toys" and that boys who play with them will be sissies... I beg to differ. I have four brothers, who each (at least three of them), at some point in their childhood, had their own (boy) doll. (I'm sure they all Love me for mentioning this on my blog!) My point is... they have all grown up to be very "manly men" (and they all LOVE babies today!)
Keenan loves playing with the dolls at speech therapy and (for the most part) is very sweet and gentle with them. I figured, if he had his own, it would be good practice for when the baby comes, and also give him something to do with his "own baby" when Mommy is busy with our little baby.
I found a cheap one ($3) yesterday, the only one that looked sort of "boyish". It wasn't the cutest of the bunch by any means, but I didn't think Keenan would care. The best part? It wrang up at 1 penny! Yay! I'd pay a penny for an ugly doll any day! =)
