Toddlers, Flamingos, and Youtube

Well, only one toddler to be exact, my toddler.
She has this thing with flamingos. 
And here he is

He's been a part of the family for a little over a year.  It's amazing how a free party favor can become so much of a ... friend, obsession, favorite thing. 

At first he was just there.  A part of the mass of toys that she would play with on occasion, but with an imagination came lots of interaction.  He often puts on a tutu and is a princess.  She puts him down for a nap and feeds him on a regular basis.  Today he had oatmeal and strawberries for breakfast.  He also has a hole, which makes him sad, so I blow him up on a daily basis, which then makes him happy.

We also have questions. 

Enter youtube.  For a long time I didn't do youtube.  It mostly seemed like this complete waste of time that had way too many conversations start with "have you seen this movie  on youtube?"  But then we bought a house and I needed to fix things and yay youtube.  It's also great at answering toddlers questions, like "what do moose say?"

I can't remember what question sparked the flamingo youtube adventure, but this video is amazing.  She asks to watch it regularly.  There really isn't any way to describe it, you just have to watch.
