Earlier this month we made a trip to Ikea. Our normal routine is, get our stuff out of the way and then let Ardo play. This day he was in the stuff animal area and came across the Ikea dolls. The first one he picked up was the little boy and he said "oh baby," I let him play with him for a few minutes then asked him to put it back and move onto something else. He didn't want too, he really just wanted to hold that guy. Off the top of my head I called him Henry, and from then on "heeeenwy" was born. I picked Ardo up and took him over to Jerry and of course Jerry said "well who's this?" I said this is Henry and he might have to come home with us (Ardo was NOT letting him go). I have to admit, Jerry wasn't THRILLED about Henry. He kept asking Ardo if he didn't want the giant snake instead. As a child Jerry never played with dolls (he did wear his hair in curlers tho) so for about 10 minutes he was being sorta manly about it. I personally hate that as soon as you say the word "doll" it seems to be only meant for girls. Ridiculous! And after the 10 minutes I think he realized it was a stupid thing to care about and that Henry all of a sudden made Ardo so happy. And so Henry came home with us. Henry is Ardo's new best friend/partner in crime/bath buddy/car ride buddy. Henry completely knocked lamb and birdie and eli out of the water. It's all about Henry now.
Henry doesn't come without flaws tho, according to Ardo
1. Henry Bites
2. Henry needs to be potty trained because lately hes been going "peepeepoopoo" a lot
3. Henry always wants snacks and milk
This weekend henry made it to the park with us, and Ardo threw him down the slide and said, "wait henry" then he slid down and yelled "weee I coming" it was funny.
But he loves him, his little Henry
