"This One On My Back & This One On My Belly"

As I heard Noah's well versed instructions to me when I went in to get him from his nap today, I thought I would note it in our blog as a memory. It has become one of my favorite parts of my day when I hear these words from him. It all has to do with his blankies. He started out with 3 different blankies of which I would trade out as I would wash another. I was always so happy to have 3 so that in the tragic event that we lost one, I would have 2 "ready to go" replacements. I don't know how it happened, but somehow he became attached to 2 particular blankies and he now has to have them both each time he lays down for a sleep. I can only imagine what life will be like if we happen to lose one. The saying above has to do with how very particular he is in how he uses both of them. His green one must lay on his back and his cream one must lay on his belly. This is tradition for both when he lays down to sleep and when I come in to hold him for a moment after his sleepy times. I must hold him with his blankies just so on him. And it doesn't matter that this has been tradition for months now, he always feels the need to remind me how he wants his blankies. So, thank you AA if you are reading as the blankie you made him has become his "back" blankie. He loves it so.
