Nathan has finally developed a particular affinity for one specific toy. The problem is, that toy is actually a dog toy that has belonged to Pepper for years. The blue octopus, seen here, has a magical allure about it that attracts both dog and baby. It has created some moments of frustration for both parties. Nathan isn't mobile yet so he can't get it when he sees it, but he whines and grunts till I do. Then Pepper decides she wants it and lurks around him, waiting for him to set it aside for just a minute. She won't really try to steal it when he's holding it. But as soon as she has it, he realizes it's gone and starts fussing. Pepper has been very good about leaving Nathan's toys alone and just playing with hers, but Nathan had to pick her toy to love.
