Jeffrey has one lovie that he is obsessed with, a large stuffed tiger (named Grr) that unfortunately is no longer being made. Otherwise I would own fifteen of them. On Sunday we went to the zoo and bought him a smaller version as well as an elephant.
When I gave it to him he got a huge smile and shouted “tiny grr!”
Later on when I put him down to bed he requested both tigers to sleep with. Then he hugs them both close and tells me “I have TWO Grrs, Mama.”
Clearly love is having Two stuffed tigers to love and adore.
The joy in his eyes and in his language never fails to make me smile.
