It's safe to say that no interpretation of that face can beat the original's cuteness. His name is Oliver, and he loves penguins. He loves orange and yellow. It looks like he loves orange and yellow, doesn't it? He just beams sunshine and happiness.
I love penguins too. Earlier this year, at the aquarium, there was one lone penguin swimming at the glass. He was the only one showing any movement at all, and he was moving, I mean really moving in a determined way, only the tip of his beak was on the glass and he was going nowhere. It was like he was on a treadmill and not aware of it. My heart went out to him. It was so inspirational, I wanted to whip out a pistol and break the glass so the tuxedoed little fella could get outta there and move on to brighter places (disclaimer: I do not and will not ever own a pistol). We even got lost and had to back track through the penguin exhibit a few hours later and he was still swimming at that glass. What heart.
I'll be updating my blog more frequently with all the orders I have been working on this past month. I have gotten to know so many amazing families through this process. I can't wait for you to meet them all!
