he loved to carry around a rope toy.
Truthfully, it is still his favorite and
if he gets aggravated about something,
he will grab up his rope and give it a good shake.
He really liked the red one in the foreground
until he tried to catch it one day
and his tooth slipped right in it -
now it wobbles as it rolls.
But Mom found wiffle style balls with holes in them
at the Dollar Tree (4 for $1.00)
and Ruairi loves them.
