You Know How Much I Love Monkeys

Remember Monica? My Small Town monkey/daughter? I sure miss Monica.





But check out these cool little Brazilian monkeys we saw the other day:





Aren't they adorable? My sister-in-law said they looked like "glorified squirrels", but I whole-heartedly disagree! My kids wanted to touch them so bad (they tried to reason with me that because their mouths were so small, they wouldn't bite); I tried to discourage them but I couldn't quite "walk my talk" as I, too, had to reach out and touch the little guys.

Speaking of monkeys, here's my favorite little monkey sucking on his big toe:


Cheers!

Your monkey is the cutest. I call my boys "monkeys", too!

humans are definitely the best primates. And the best-smelling.

Aww, Little Pedro is so cute :) Look how big he is getting.

Those monkeys got a cool hairdo.

Pedro's grown so much! I'm sure he's so happy to have you all to himself when everyone else is away at school.

Monica sure misses you. I can't imagine another family visiting her like you guys did.

Pedro definitely wins the cutest monkey award...the others don't even come close!
