It seems like yesterday that my firstborn, Aiden, was just a newborn. Now at 3-1/2 years old, his baby years seem like forever ago.
But the one thing that has come with him into his toddler years is his blankie — “to ba.”
Does your child have a lovie that soothes them and makes them happy? This is the story of our ” two ba.”
The Story of Aiden's Blankie
It Started with Pillowcases
When Aiden was very small, he started taking the pillowcases off of my husband and I’s bedroom pillows. He would carry around a whole pile of them!
They Were Like a Piece of Us
Something about these pillowcases reminded him of us. So he held them close… they never left his side!
He Picked Favorites
Then slowly over time, he got attached to three of them. “Ba”, “Two Ba” and “Two Ba Two”…all named by Aiden himself!
And Then It Was Just "Two Ba"
Eventually, he was only attached to “two ba” and that became his blankie... his lovie! Just an old pillowcase!
It Gives Him Comfort
Lovies are so great because they can bring such comfort to your little one. Aiden holds “two ba” tight at bedtime and “two ba” has helped him through the times when he was sick.
