If I Gave You a Baby Gift: A Lovey

A lovey. 


That soft doll that by the end of your childhood -- only you could adore . . . due to the well worn places loved by moving figures. 

My lovey was the female version of Snoopy.  I don’t know her real name. 

I called her Bell.

Before that was Dog.  My mom had to sew Dog’s neck a few times, as represented by the ribbon that mimicked a scarf worn for a baptism on a spring day.  Pale yellow.

Dog, also a Snoopy, never was white.  At least that I recall.  He looked more like Scooby Doo.  Mostly because he was filled with love dirt.  Child dreams.  Tears. 


For some reason, lovies bring comfort. 


They are the faithful friend. 


The representation of safety, security, companionship.


We have several in our house.  Go figure.  With four children there are bound to be favorite, treasured stuffed animals.

We have a giraffe called, “Help.”  Because he helps my son when he is scared. 

Another orange creature called, “Leon.”  He was given to Gabe at Christmas and is Noel spelled backwards.

“Puppy” wanders around complete with a leash, bell, and collar.

And now . . . Irene.  Soft cotton.  Visually stimulating.  Fringe.  Jingles.


It began with a simple follow on Twitter.  Which initiated a discussion.  Then a package in the mail.  And now a giveaway.  (Partially because I enjoy getting the word out about crafty moms . . . hence several of my Baby item giveaways!)




Complete with a crinkle noise.  And a loop.
