I have always wondered how kids determine their favorite stuffed animal, their lovie. Tommy picked his when he was a little over six months old. Blue Bear has been his companion ever since. AJ recently just picked his lovie. A monkey. We kept trying to see what AJ would lean towards and never picked a favorite until about a month ago. Now Monkey and him are inseparable. It's amazing the comfort these lovies give you. Chris and I still actually have ours. We passed them along to the kids. Chris loved Thumper as a child and mine were what I called my lolly dolls. I hope our kids can pass their lovies on down to their children too. Here are some pictures of our lovies.
