This child LOVES her lovie. She has 3 of them now, all the same, and they are DISGUSTING. She had one to begin with (passed down with love from cousin Grace when she started getting attached to Aidric's blue one and I panicked). Anyway, the original became pretty gross b/c she sleeps with a limb in her mouth and sucks on it all night long. It's beyond gross. So, I ordered 2 new ones and hoped to completely dispose of the original. Instead, she rejected the new ones completely. So, I found myself working on making them a little more disgusting so she'd take them. I figured I had just spent $50 on lovies and shipping, I was going to get some use out of them!!
Long story short, we now have three absolutely filthy, disgusting, smelly lovies that get washed at least once a week but smell after one nap. I don't know how we'll take them away from her, but at some point, we'll need to. She's only allowed to have them in her crib, for naps and quiet time. But, she'll stop what she's doing (in the playroom or wherever), crawl up the stairs, go to her crib, reach through the slats and pull one out just for an in-between the nap snuggle! I followed her up this morning with my camera to capture the love Juliet has for these nasty little things!!
