The Things He Sleeps With

His first year, he slept in a sling, in a cradle, in the car seat, in our arms, in the stroller, swaddled or not, blankets or none, wherever he dropped off.

Last year (pictured) he slept solo.

Now, he sleeps with a crowd:
His flannel and satin lovey blanket
A knit mole (Mole)
A small gray bear, knit by his aunt (New Bear)
A piglet with a bell inside (Jingle Pig)
A blue plush cow (Moo)
A plush giraffe (Giraffey)
A plush lemur (Ringo)
A plush gorilla (Gorilla)
A fabric dachsaund (Doggie)
A toy hard hat
A toy screwdriver
My car keys (when he can get ’em)
Maisy’s Favorite Things
The polka-dot blanket
The Pooh blanket
The bah-bah black sheep blanket (knit for him by a friend)
The shark blanket
The moon and stars blanket (a hand-me-down from his cousins)
The cow blanket

I’ll keep letting him add things, I don’t care, as long as he still finds room for himself, as long as sleeps…

    great post! He has an older cousin whose list is probably as long, and certainly used to include a couple of books (usually under the pillow). I’m afraid to count.

  2. Mom says:

    And do you have to pack ALL of that stuff if you’re going to be away for a while?

    WOW, that’s a crowded bed! 🙂
