When Monty Met Jonty

Last week shy little Monty Monkey hid his face from the camera.  I finally was able to bribe him with some banana milkshakes into posing for a few photos.  Monty, slow down!! We can't go outside yet because I haven't got the camera.


He is so cheeky and quick!  I have to run to keep up.  Here is a pic of him swinging in my beans.


Monty was very excited because he was off to his new home with a little boy called Jonty.  I did get him to sit still for just a moment though.


Before we set off Corey wanted to pose with Monty for one last photo.  The other monkey in the shot is Gizmo, a monkey Corey made some time ago.  Kind of reminds me of the three wise monkeys; see no evil, speak no evil, hear no evil.  Not sure which one Corey is...hmmmm.


We were ready to go.  Monty couldn't wait.  Finally the time arrived.....


When Monty met Jonty.  Aren't they the cutest pair! I bet they will get up to many adventures together.  In fact I am sure they already have.

P.S All the monkeys shown here are courtesy of the Melly & Me pattern Magoo.  I have had heaps of fun creating my own monkey troop!

Monty for Jonty... how cute! I'm sure as soon as Jonty figures out how to hold things that he won't ever let Monty go!

Ohh Monty and Jonty are so unbelievably cute together! I love toys for littlies that are bigger than them when they are gifted, it’s so nice to look back when the child is bigger than the toy and remember when it was the other way around.

I love how big Monty is in comparison to Jonty right now. It will be cute to see him "grow into" the toy. :)

Shell said...

Yes I think so June! He is only a little bubby so he has plenty of room to grow.
