One very significant thing that stands out about October is Phia's attachment to Holly the Red Panda. I'm not sure exactly when it happened, and I'm sure it was much earlier than October, but suddenly one day she woke up was SUPER attached to her. No more may-may (monkey blanket) being dragged around all over the place (although she does still want it when she sleeps). Holly the Red Panda is her one true love. She named it herself, and you must always call her by her full name-Holly the Red Panda. If you don't Phia will quickly correct you. She goes everywhere with Holly (if you look closely you will see her in almost every single picture from here on out), and Phia is the most loving little mommy to her, she kisses her, feeds her, shares her drink, even makes sure she has covers at bedtime. She is so sweet to Holly-until she gets angry. Then Holly the Red Panda is the first thing she throws. Poor panda, she must be so confused.
notice poor sad Holly the Red Panda on the ground. . . fits.
