Mr. Peepers and Family Resemblances!

 So Aunt Ju Ju has taken it a step further...Since the birth of Silly Jilly, Aunt Ju Ju has said she thought Silly Jilly looks just like a Bush Baby (See "Possibly the best call ever" post).  Here lately I have not heard any of those snarky comments.  I should have known something was up, especially when Aunt Ju Ju said she sent a package our way and we would have no question knowing which gift was for Silly Jilly.  But I didn't think anything of it and just assumed it would either be a baby toy or something she had made for Silly Jilly.  It wasn't until I opened the package and saw two giant eyes staring back at me that I knew Aunt Ju Ju had just been laying low so she could catch me off guard!  Inside was none other than:
Mr. Peepers
A BUSH BABY Beanie Baby!

How she found this creature, I'll never know!  But leave it up to her to find a Bush baby toy!  And of course Silly Jilly absolutely loves it!  She has no clue it was given to her as a gag gift! 
As for my baby looking like a Bush Baby, I just don't see it...However I was a little taken aback when I downloaded some pictures from the Fourth of July and came across this gem:

Maybe my sister is onto something...There may be a Bush Baby gene on Papa Z's side of the family!
