As many of you know, we have 2 boys and 1 girl. The boys have 4 legs, and they were here before our little girl rocked our world. We sometimes forget about them because they are not learning to crawl, walk, talk, and other assorted amazing things. But they are still amazing. Levi adores Maddy, and Dude has patience that can't be duplicated. Dude will let Maddy grab, poke, pinch, and pull whenever she wants, and won't flinch or move until I pull her away. Levi doesn't have quite as much patience, but he seeks her out more than Dude does. And when it comes to snuggling? Nobody beats a Squeevie. He is the squishiest, warmest, cuddliest teddy bear any child could want.
Lest anybody think we are negligent parents who let our child sleep with many pillows, fluffy blankets, and (egads!) dogs, let me assure you that we do. But only with constant adult supervision. Hey - I've got to get in on the snuggle action too!
