Mom here. Laila update: Even after I got rid of the live pothos Laila was still scared and realized she was now focusing on the huge green silk pothos on top of the bookcase. It is now sitting under an end table with pillows leaning up against the sides blocking her view of it. The silk pothos has been up there since day one. No more Christmas tree, silk plants, etc. She is now out and about like her normal self. What a Mom won't do for her kid.
