Lovie #2 and Lovie #1
One of the one mistakes I think I made is giving Keegan a small stuffed animal, (a.k.a Lovie) around 6 months to sleep with. It really worked at first and it soothed him to sleep...and it still does. BUT nothing else will work. So, day after day this little lamb has gone through the ringer. Keegan's spit has saturated it and discolored it. It SMELLS so bad. I almost gag when he plays with it near my face. The main problem with this particular "lovie" is that when you press his tummy it says a sweet prayer. If Keegan rolls over on it in the middle of the night, the lamb startles him...and us. Because it has this device I can not throw it in the washing machine and dryer between naps. I have to wash it by hand and let it drip dry. Well, obviously it has only been washed once. It just does not dry in time. So, I went on a mission to find Lovie #2. I have looked in stores, but finally found it online. It came in the mail today and I was grossed out how really disgusting his old lovie is when I took out the fluffy bright blue lamb out of the box. So now, Lovie #1 is going to get a major overhaul in some suds and we might surgically remove his noise maker!
