{Mo}

All of my kids have had a blanket/stuffed animal cozy since they were born. They've all grown very attached to this cozy and can't sleep without it nearby (Ella's slowly growing out of this).

Because we would travel a lot with the girls on a plane while in Iowa we bought an extra cozy for each of the girls in case the one they carried with them on the plane got lost.

It's been quite handy to have the extra one...especially when we have to wash them, or lose them which we have twice.

Jonas got a monkey. A monkey name Mo. He didn't get an extra one because I didn't want to spend $30 on another one when I wasn't sure he was attached.

After viewing his concern and true sadness when Mo was "taking a bath" with the other cozy's I'm guessing he's attached.At first he thought it was silly...Then, not so much.Then devastation.He kept pacing back and forth down the hallway for 20 minutes waiting for his Mo.It was a joyous, warm reunion, the scent of bounce dryer sheet in the air, later on that morning.

I've decided to stick to one Mo and if/when we lose him fork over the $30. Mo...don't ever get lost mmmkay?

Those pictures are so sweet.

All my kiddos have small (portable) stuffed animal lovies and I never even thought to buy backups... until we lost our very special Classic Pooh Tigger in Costa Rica. It was devastation for nights. After lots of internet searches, my sister found a similar (but not exactly the same) Tigger that has fulfilled our needs.

Since then I have located where I can buy our other lovies if the need arrives in the future, but I'm with you... I don't want to fork over the money so I'm just hoping they never ever EVER get lost. :-)

That sweet little boy's face has me teared up!!! So sweet! Both of my kids had a "B", which was a special blanket. Jackson slowly grew out of his by the time he was 7 or 8, but Lauren is almost 9 and still attached. She looks like your sweet Jonas even now when her "B" is in the washing machine!! ;)

Mason's Dodo (blanket. Who knows why it's Dodo Bird) get's a "bath" weekly. This used to be more anxious than it is these days. He's already growing out of it :(

I forgot to tell you today - that I just LOVE these pictures! Too cute! Noah has two of Bob, but he is almost 5 and still doesn't like the "other Bob" that isn't the one he had originally:) Eli carries his two blankets around the house all the time...one over each shoulder! haha~

This melts my heart erica. I want to just snuggle him with his sad face!

Sloan has a lamb that she loves. When we were in Utah a few weeks ago, Sloan threw it out of her stroller when I was in Forever21 in SLC (at the time, we didn't know where we lost it at though....)....we called every store I went into to see if someone had turned it in, and they had but Sloan had to go a night without it because it was too late for me to go back and get it. It was a long night.....it would of been handy to have a back up fo' sho!

you better buy another before you cannot find another. That happened to us and I had to scour ebay for weeks until someone finally posted it and I paid way more than I should have but we had some sleepless nights until it showed!
BTW, he is a doll. LOVE his pouty lip!

Meg said...

Oh my cuteness!! That little lip is heart wrenching.
