One well loved Raffe

T has many animal loves in his life. They are all creatively named (Mouse, Iguana, Bear, Other Bear, and Hibby). Only one animal, however, holds the special lovey place in his heart. Meet Raffe.T received Raffe during his baby shower from his Mummu. We didn't realize until he was about 18 months old, just how important Raffe would become in our little man's life. He is the indispensable bedtime companion.

We actually have 4 Raffes. For a long time, one lived at T's school, one was in his bed, one was in the wash, and the extra was hiding in case we had a spillage incident. I have just put in the order for two more Raffes. As you can see, Raffe The Eldest is starting to look a little loved. I have no problem letting T continue to use him as long as he can. I'm just afraid that one day he's going to come out of the washer without horns. There would be wailing and gnashing of teeth. And so Raffe's cousins are once again making their way across the Atlantic to bring comfort to a little boy.

Mom got him that - she bought it at a store here in downtown Ft Collins

Wow, I would have sworn it was a Jersey friend of ours. She must've gotten him the other Manhattan Baby toy we have. Oops. Sorry Jo!

He also has a flat lion, but it's just not Raffe.

Everyone needs a Raffe.
