Today is my sweet niece's birthday. Usually I send her and her brothers books for their birthdays, because I love books. I know, I know...what a boring present for a kid to get from their aunt, right? Well, I try to make sure the books are fun and interesting. But, this year I decided my niece needed a sock monkey for her birthday! So, I made her this colorful, stripey monkey...a cute and fun gift for a special girl. I wish I could give her birthday hugs in person, but this monkey has nice long arms to give her plenty of hugs for me. I hope she's having a great day!
