Vivi and the Toy Car, a Photographic Love Story

By caseymullins |

I can clearly remember one of my nephews lying on the floor for hours pushing his little toy cars back and forth. About two weeks ago we pulled out a toy train that belonged to Addie and Vivi immediately began pushing it back and forth on our wood floors. When we arrived at my parents house this last week my step mom had purchased a couple of toy cars that fit perfectly into Vivi’s chubby little hands but one in particular holds her heart and attention more than any other.

I must admit that the stereotype of ‘cars are for boys’ lingers somewhere in the very back of my mind. Addie was never into cars, trains or planes and so it never occurred to me that a little toy car may just be the most perfect toy for Vivi, but after hanging out with her on the floor yesterday I realized that not only are toy cars her favorite, the little yellow one is the first toy she’s ever really fallen in baby love with.

Baby Loves Playing With Cars

Beep Beep!

First things first, I keep my camera nearby and ready to go all the time, so when she started playing with her little car I scooted her closer to the big glass front door and snapped a few photos without distracting her.
