For over a year Ethan has dearly loved his Lamb (or Wahmie as it sounds when he calls it) he got before he was born. Lambie is very soft and flat and he uses her as a pillow. We bought Ethan a bunkbed a few weeks ago and he has stopped sleeping in the fetal position and using Lambie as a pillow, but still keeps her close at night. Over the weekend we got Ethan the Abominable Snow Monster. Husband jokingly hopes that Ethan will attach to Bumble and Lambie will be a thing of the past. As you can tell in the pic below I don't think that is going to happen anytime soon! :-)
Loving on Wahmie
Whenever he does decide to 'give up' Lambie I will be sure to wash her and put her away for a dear keepsake. He may not remember her when he is grown (unless he still has her at 12!), but the memories we have of him with his little Lambie will be most sweet to us.
