Lauren's Blanket

When each of my children were born, or at least soon after, they have received a home made blanket/quilt from my mom. She has some major talent in this area! While all my kids love their blankets, Lauren is especially attached and has been known to cry for 20minutes in the car when we have refused to take it with us. The last few days I have notice Lauren pushing around her stroller. I assumed that she had a baby in it then put her blanket on top. It looked as though the baby was being smothered but whatever it is a pretend baby any ways.

It cracked me up that she was just pushing around her blanket in the stroller. Her blanket deserves the sweet life in her eyes. The other thing I noticed is that she plays with the chenille (i think that is what it is called) side of her blanket by rubbing her finger over the ridges in the material. Towards the end of the video you can notice her little finger. I am glad she loves her blanket and has that little quirk, the one I am not too thrilled about is the thumb. Did you notice when she tried to steer the stroller she wouldn't take her thumb out of her mouth, she just leaned and used her arm pit?

Another little passion she has is chocolate. She is a choco-holic. If you mention the word during dinner she will push her plate away, put her thumb in her mouth, and turn around in her chair to watch the location of chocolate (yes we are still working on our Halloween candy) to make sure she gets her piece. She will refuse to eat the rest of her dinner until she gets her chocolate. Sometimes I give in and let her eat the chocolate then return to her dinner, sometimes I let the fit run it's course while she is on her bed and she will humbly walk back to her chair, thumb in mouth of course! She may have a lot of spunk and personality but she sure is a cutie!

what a cutie--I love how she loves her blankie :)

and I love how she compensates her driving techniques.

my 3 (almost 4) year old is the same way with chocolate :)
