My lovely friend Ruth sent Samuel a wonderful birthday present. It plays loud, obnoxious songs with unintelligable animal sounds mixed in. It has one volume - overbearing - and NO off button. Isn't she the greatest? Well, unfortunately (boo, hoo) Samuel is scared TO DEATH of this train. We have hidden it in our room behind the door, but every now and again he crawls in there, sees it, and starts crying.
