Neigh

Many people have an item that is very special to them. It may be a blanket they have had since they were little or a special toy. For Landon it is a stuffed animal horse named Neigh. Landon recieved this horse on they day he was born from his Aunt Mindy and it has become a very cherised and well loved possession. As you can tell he is very well loved. Compare this to the other stuffed animal he recieved also from Aunt Mindy on the day he was born. This one is a frog.

Neigh and Landon have been through a lot together. When we lived in our old ward he always took Neigh with him to nursery. The nursery workers felt very priviledged when Landon would let them hold Neigh. Neigh has also been lost a few times, once for about 2 weeks and he always manages to find his way back to Landon. He was found in my parent's couch cushion. I think that this stuffed horse has way more than 9 lives!!

Recently while Dave and I were helping Landon clean his bedroom Dave told Landon he could choose 3 stuffed animals to keep on his bed and the rest had to go in Emma and Reagan's Closet. If we let Landon he would be sleeping with 10-15 stuffed animals every night. I left for a little bit and Dave later showed me that Neigh was one of the stuffed animals that ended up in Emma and Reagan's closet. I was shocked!! I thought that maybe Landon was outgrowing Neigh. However, Neigh has once again resurfaced and made his way back to Landon. Landon is once again sleeping with Neigh. Maybe someday Landon will outgrow it, but I am not holding my breath!

Cute story Em. At some point we outgrow our childhood lovies. I never had one, but my brother still has his blankie from when he was a baby. Kind of weird, I think.

It will be a sad day when Landon no longer loves his "neigh". I just can't imagine him without it.

Thank heaven for little things that make our kids our babies for just a little bit longer.
