My little guy is kind of obsessed with elephants right now (and trucks).  I indulge his fetish by taking him to the zoo about once a week (I have always wanted an excuse to go to the zoo) and every time I mention “zoo” he starts making elephant trumpeting sounds.  Sometimes he is making those sounds when I come to get him out of bed in the morning.  A lot of times when I ask him what he wants to wear he will make elephant sounds (he does have a truck shirt so I guess he figures he should have an elephant shirt too) so I decided to make him an elephant shirt!
