So Long To An Old Friend

Clare's lovie, a pink blanket/bunny, has been with her since birth.  I think we actually had it at the hosptial with us when she was born. 



It has seen her though good times and bad.  It comforted her when she gave up her pacifier and during almost every sad or scary moment of her short life...like getting her picture made with Santa.  Until recently, Lovie was next to her in bed every night.  For awhile, I thought Lovie might go with her to college and walk her down the aisle.


Well, the day has come where Lovie is no longer needed.  Clare hasn't slept with it in quite a while, and today when she went to spend the night with her grandparents, she purposefully didn't pack it.  Another sign of my oldest girl growing up.

Now Lovie will remain in her drawer until it makes it's final move into a keepsake box.  Lovie, you have served your purpose quite well.  Thank you for providing my sweet girl an immeasurable amount of comfort!

Good thing there are three more proud lovie-toters under my roof!  No sign of the younger three getting rid of theirs anytime soon....and that is fine by me!
