This cute little fellow has been my sleeping buddy for the last week or two. When we were preparing to adopt Lilly, I read that sleeping with an object can help your scent transfer to that object. The thought here being that the child would smell your scent on the object, recognize it when they meet you, and this would perhaps make the transition a little easier. So I slept with a stuffed duck and purple blanket for Lilly, a yellow blanket for Ellie, and now a stuffed bear for Hudson. Who knows if it works, but it does bring a little comfort to this mom's heart knowing that this little bear that I snuggled with for weeks will soon be in Hudson's little hands.
