Toddler Talk Thursday was created as a place for moms and dads of toddlers to come together over a weekly topic and share ideas, go-to toys, or products. It is a great way to meet other bloggers of toddlers. Each week the topic will be different; we invite you to link up, share your weekly Toddler Talk!!
Each week the hosts will travel around to each blog that links up, and pick an idea, story, or picture they think was a great example of that week’s topic. In order to qualify for this you need to blog about this week’s topic, and follow the hosts. Comments letting us know you are participating are always great too. If we choose your blog, we will link back to your post the following week.
Our highlighted blog this week is:
Let’s welcome to Toddler Talk
This week’s topic is : Toddler Lovey’s
This week’s topic is so incredibly easy for me, I almost feel like I’m cheating a little bit. At a baby shower for Brock, somebody (I can’t even remember who, despite looking through all of my gift lists) gave us a little stuffed dog. It’s basically a beanie baby but bigger. Initially, it went up in Brock’s stuffed animal hammock that we kept above his crib with all of the other stuffed animals we got as gifts.
When Brock was about 6 months old, Greg and I decided to go through the hammock & thin out some of the animals & test which ones Brock actually liked & which ones we should donate to Goodwill.
He snuggled some.
He nommed on some.
He hated some.
But there was one in particular that caught his attention.
We like to call him, “Brown Dog Stemme”
Holy mother of pearl. Look at how tiny my baby boy was! ::sigh::
Brown Dog sleeps with Brock:
Brown Dog is even such a big part of our family, he made the cut for family pictures (taken when I was pregnant with Sissy):
Brock doesn’t always like to share Brown Dog though:
And when Adrianna got old enough, only having one dog really became a problem.
Now we have three.
Each kid has their own & there is a backup in case one of them gets dunked in the toilet.
Or dropped in the snow.
Or is the unfortunate victim of a golden shower.
Or is just so damn filthy that it needs a “bath”.
The day that Brock wants to leave Brown Dog behind is going to be a sad day for his momma.
Hopefully it won’t be until he leaves for college. Because, let’s face it, I will already be an emotional wreck that day so what are a few more tears?
What loveys do your kids have or had in the past?
