You've never latched on to a lovie or security blanket. As hard as I've tried, you always threw your plush Little Nutbrown Hare to the floor with an ungracious amount of umph, and carelessly tossed aside my childhood teddy bear. I'd all but given up. However, each morning this week you have greeted me at the bars of your crib with your Aden+Anais blanket in hand, and have smoothed it across your cheek. Today you brought it with us into my bed to nurse and then cuddled with it long afterward. There is hope for a special lovie in your life after all.
