Quick post at the end of a long day---
Recently, B has taken to sleeping with his big dinosaur. It is not a stuffed animal, but sort of medium soft plastic. Interestingly, it isn't in bed generally when we put him down so he is apparently getting out of bed to go get it and bring it in. He doesn't seem to be snuggling with it per se, just there with him. He brings it out along with his blanket and cup when he finishes his nap which is pretty cute. Seems to make opening the door more of a struggle, but he works it out. I've asked the dinosaur's name and am told it is "Green." The dinosaur is partially green in color (as you can see) so I'm not sure if he understands the naming it concept or not. Overall, is an interesting new development particularly as I was quite the one for sleeping with my stuffed animals for more years than I'd like to admit. He also is coming to get us less often and back to a bit more wall-kicking. In an amazing turn of events I think we got to sleep in past 8:30 once this weekend. All this just in time for the ultimate sleep disruption, right?
Ps. Any thoughts on naming the baby a shortened form of a name rather than the full name. Like say how my parents did naming me Abbey not Abigail? Is particularly relavent in the Margaret/Maggie concept, but in some other possibilities too. Thanks for all the votes and comments on the name game we appreciate it and may toss up some others as our discussiosn continue.
