My wee man has never had a favourite toy or comforter since a baby. I'm afraid that is probably the role of his dummy at the minute. Yet slowly over time I have watched his toys become his friends. Stuffed toys started to take on new life and were not just decorative pieces any more. Slowly the collection of soft toys in the bed grew and I'm not sure if he would be happy to settle without one...I've not dared to try! It's watching how his imagination grows that is fascinating. He has conversations with them, gets them to do fun things with him and are great for just a cuddle. The soft toy-wee man relationship has now also been found to be very beneficial for travelling long distances for example when stuck on an aeroplane for two and a half hours. Recently it's hard to go out the house without someone in his hand. Actually sometimes his hands are full beyond capacity and mummy is charged with holding one. I've learnt as well that I can't hide them in my pockets but have to carry them in my hands because after all there is certain way we treat our friends.
