At the time where other toddlers give up their baby toys Anna suddenly developed strong love for her cuddle blankie. At home we only allow her to carry this blanket in her room, but it traveled with her on the plane and she carries it all around grandparents’ house. The moment things are not going exactly her way, she starts saying I need my blankie!, grabs it and hides her face in it. She keeps asking if she can take her blanket to her new school knowing fully well what my answer will be. She also has her favorite kitty (also in this picture), but her love for this kitty is nothing in comparison to the cuddle blankie. I hope that once she feels more secure and settled, the need for security blanket will fade, but it’s kind of baffling to see my normally self-possessed daughter wail that she misses her blanket in the middle of the department store.
