Jeffry Giraffe is quite possibly the grubbiest, smelliest stuffed giraffe of all time (he only gets washed when we're able to prize him away from little fingers). But he belongs wholeheartedly to Jacob and is quite possibly the most loved giraffe in the entire world.
Here's a little moment between them tonight at dinner time. Because one day, in the not so distant future Jeffry will be tossed aside or left upon the shelf to make way for computer games or exams or girls or football but for now - aged 5 -the love this little boy has for his most precious possession is immeasurable. It's beautiful. I hope even if it fades it's always there and I'm so glad that we now have this picture!
