Too Many Babies

I remember how we were so careful when she was a newborn and wouldn't put anything in the crib with her, as the book experts and our pediatrician had told us that they were smothering hazards. All the adorable baby quilts, pillows, and other snugglies were carefully removed when we lay her down. We've certainly come a long way from those days!

Now she's all about her babies, and she has a ton. These aren't even nearly all of them. At bedtime we find ourselves trying to bargain with her as we attempt to move some from the bed to her shelves. Each time we try, she gets all panicky. "I need her, I NEED her. I need baby," she'll insist. Today at nap time, Brad had actually done a good job removing them, and had a stern talk with her about how we don't get out of bed until Mommy or Daddy come and get us.

This is what I saw when I came in to get her up, so much for that talk! They're all back in, can't believe there was room for her too.

Haha! I'm the same way, my bed at my parent's house is overrun with elephants, I barely have any room. But just like your daughter, I neeeeed them!!! :) As long as she's happy I guess!

Here at school though, I was given a strict limit of three. You have no idea how hard it was to only choose three elephants to come to school with me. I don't care that I'm "grown up" and an "adult". Whatever, I need my lovies too!

I had to smile when I saw this! I thought my daughter has many babies. It doesn't seem so many to me any more after seeing this picture. :-) But the "discussion" before bedtime is definitely similar! None of the babies are allowed to go on the shelf - they all HAVE to stay in bed with her ...
