She's the rescue spider. Her official description is probably something more along the lines of "she'll teach your kid the ABC's" and that's really all we've ever expected of her. See, Lulu was a gift from our friends (the 'other' Jeff & Stephanie) at my baby shower. They tell us that their son just might have learned the alphabet from her, so we've always had Lulu in the toy basket with all the other toys. For whatever reason, Wyatt's expressed more interest in her lately so I hung her on his crib yesterday.
All I can say is, all hail Lulu! Why, you ask? Well, because three times in the last two nights (and let's face it, tonight's not over) Wyatt has awakened with his new-standard, all-out bawling and then all of a sudden we hear, "let's sing the alphabet song! a b c d..." and then he goes back to sleep. Our other favorite thing about Lulu? Hearing her over the monitor singing, "I'm spinning a letter what will it be? Z!" and then hearing Wyatt say, "o? o?" then he hits her again. The poor kid just wants the o, Lulu! No complaints, though, since Lulu is now handling the night shift and Wyatt's learning 24/7. So here's a little something I never thought I'd say: that's one awesome spider!
