True Lovey

Today's story is a real life love story.
Love at first sight even.
I don't know if you believe in that kind of thing, but I'm here to tell you it's real.

Lily and Lovey
(Lily+Lovey= Love Forever)

Last June we threw a big fun circus birthday bash to celebrate Lily's 1st birthday.
When it came time to open presents she tentatively tore at the paper, gladly handed shiny new toys over to her older & wiser buddy (he's 3 & definitely knows how to fully appreciate a plastic drum set) and squealed with delight at cardboard boxes.
But there was one particular present that stole miss Lily's heart that day.
We gently coaxed her to the bottom of a pretty gift bag where she found her soul mate.

Lovey is his name. Snuggling's his game.
I promise this is honestly the very first thing she did when she saw him.
In fact, this is still how she falls asleep every night (5 months later).
We recently forgot Lovey at MorMor & PaPa's for a day and life did not go on.
The girl honestly refused to sleep all day & wailed for nearly an hour before collapsing with exhaustion at bedtime!

These are the stories I want to remember forever & the pictures I want to come back to someday.
These past 17 months have flown and I'm so thankful for every little snuggle, smoochie & sweet sweet smile.
Happy 17 month birthday Lil & happy 5 month anniversary to you & your true lovey ;)
