I wonder if I am the only parent who makes up words with their kids? I can't be, right? I've always made up stupid words for things, and apparently it gets worse when you have children. I don't know why but awhile ago when Gavin would give me hugs, I would always say, "Snuggy, snuggy, chicken nuggy." I like rhyming, what can I say? So then we started calling hugs, snuggies. Gavin knows that when we ask for a snuggy he should hug us, so apparently it isn't too hard to learn my "new" language!
Gavin is super good about going down for a nap or at bedtime. I don't know how we got so lucky, but we'll take it. He is very routine and likes you to lay him down and give him a bottle. He holds his binky in his right hand and the bottle with his left and then you have to give him his, "Snuggy Turtle." (Not to be confused with the Purple Turtle, although he does enjoy that too!) He takes it in his right had and holds it to him and then you smooth his hair, say night night and turn on his Primary CD. Voila! It's that easy. What a good boy! He never fails to amaze me. Thank you, Gavin, for doing SOMETHING that I ask!
