a few months ago, i noticed that avery would hug her blanket when she went to sleep. i went into ben's giant tub of stuffed animals and found my personal fav - this soft, long eared bunny and gave it to her. after a very short time, this bunny has become avery's favourite thing ever.
when she stands up in her crib, waiting for someone to come get her, she's holds it by it's ear and doesn't leave the crib without it. when she spots it laying on the floor around the house, she throws herself on it and lays there for a few seconds. she's a champion crawler while holding bunny. it's always the pillow between my shoulder and her head when she's sad or tired.
the other day in the mall, someone asked what the bunny's name is. my childhood inability to name stuffed animals has followed me to adulthood and we just call it Bunny.
