Her “purple blankie” was given to her by her grandma when she was first born. Who knew she’d grow so attached to it? Kitty is from our very first trip to Barnes and Noble together. She had just learned to walk, and she walked right up to the first shelf she saw that was at her level, grabbed the kitty, and refused to let go. So he came home with us, and he has slept in her bed ever since. Hunny Bunny was given to her by the Easter bunny on her first Easter. Another friend who is always by her side. He is being propped up by her children’s Bible, which sits next to her bed. We’ve read through it, front to back, twice since she received it last Christmas. I’ve put it away in the closet many times, worrying about what might happen if her brother gets a hold of it, but it always ends up back next to her bed. The tea set was a Christmas gift when she was three, and is one of her most cherished toys. And the doll, the special gift she received when she turned five.
This weekend, I came up from switching the laundry around, and I found her quietly playing. It is funny how just one photo can say so much about her. All that is important in her five year old world is right there. Add this to another moment that I never want to forget…
Erin - SO SO sweet and I love her pony tail!!
Jessica W - So sweet. I bet that would be cool in b&w too!
