This past weekend when we went to visit Katie, Eric and Raegan, Blake became fascinated with Keagan (their dog). He let Keagan lick his face (although Blake quickly learned to close his eyes and make a face when it happened) and pet Keagan. Ever since, we have this stuffed polar bear (Oliver) that sorta looks like a puppy and now Blake has taken a strong liking to him. He hugs him and gives him kisses. It is so cute to watch him get a closer attachment to a toy. Granted, he still drops Oliver like a bad habit if there is a cabinet in site that needs opening but its a start.
