Guess who is no longer part of naptime, or bedtime either? Dumbo and "ottawa" (other one--his other lovey) and his other "ottawa" have all been phased out. We took all three guys with us to Florida and he never really asked for them when he went to sleep. So when we got home, I just kept them put away and he's never said anything about them. This is a good thing because Dumbo's nose was just about the most disgusting thing I have ever seen (or smelled!) He has slept with that thing since about 4 months and has been sucking on poor Dumbo's nose for most of that time. I washed him often, but nothing got that smell out. Ew.
So Dumbo is now in the memory box. I will never forget how he would put it over his face when he was a baby to sleep or how we would listen from the hallway as he sucked on his nose.
Here are a few pictures (not in chronological order because that would take too long) of Dumbo's glory days.
So long, Dumbo. Thanks for the months of faithful service.
