The blankie handoff

I mentioned in my last post that A has decided to donate her blankie to her baby brother.  She has been telling us she was going to do it for months.  I wasn't sure she would actually do it when it came right down to it.  The night we came home from the hospital she had tried to leave it C's bed but daddy made her take it out until it could be washed.  A very wise man, that daddy is.
Today it finally got washed.  A saw it in the bottom of the basket and got it out to take up to C who's napping.  I grabbed my camera so I wouldn't miss this.  A went up to C's bed.  She found her favorite corner (the one that's been loved into almost oblivion).  She assumed her snuggle position for one last suck on her thumb with her corner then put the blanket over C.  It's about all I could do to get this picture and not just dissolve into tears and hug the stuffing out of this sweet girl.
As we walked out of the room she commented that C wasn't sucking his thumb.  I tried to explain that not all babies suck their thumbs.  This is A's personality.  She is a lover and nurturer.  We are so lucky to have her as part of our family!

What an amazing little girl. That was quite a gesture. I teared up. You really have to appreciate those tender moments! Sure miss you!
