R has two little animals hanging from the handle of his car seat, and he smiles and talks to them all the time! We bought some more and hung them around on his toys at home...you can see the little duck hanging down in the middle. When he makes eye contact with them, he smiles...it is too cute! He has lengthy conversations with them, too! We keep thinking he will get used to them being there all the time, and they will lose their appeal, but it's like he's seeing them for the first time each time he looks at them.
