At night to fall asleep or when she's feeling anxious, Audrey will rub the ends of Lovey's ears. She's done this for as long as she's had him. The other day she brought lovey to me and revealed his new "owwie". A great, big hole on his right ear -- her favorite spot to rub.
I began talking to her about putting a patch on Lovey's ear and how it would be a lot like a band-aid. When I knew for sure she was okay with the idea, we went to the fabric store and she picked out some flannel for me to make a patch with. I could tell it was making her nervous as she was rubbing Lovey's ear the whole time we were there :).
|She made sure to find the perfect color for Lovey's ear.|
Now I'm just waiting until I have to sew a matching one on his other ear. It's already quite threadbare and I don't think it will be long.
