It’s been camping and to Disney Land, attends preschool every day he does and we wouldn’t dream of taking a vacation without it.
It has been gripped tightly on Ferris wheel rides, throughout Christmas pageants, while trick or treating, scary scenes in movies and lovingly caressed during story time.

Once known as his “ya ya”, Lucas first took to his lovey at just 10 months old. It has been a constant source of love and security ever since and is my hero because it has the ability to comfort him in ways I can’t or haven’t yet learned.
Does your child have a favorite item that they cling to when the going gets tough?
