Sissy's got my back...and my blankie
To prevent Ella from spending the summer with her thumb in her mouth (like in this picture from last December), we've instituted a new blankie rule: blankie is allowed only when Ella is sleeping. We didn't have to have a rule during the school year because she doesn't take her blankie to school and doesn't seem to pay much attention to it after school. But this summer, she showed signs of serious blankie and thumb addiction, so we began enforcing the new policy.
This morning Ella came upstairs with her blankie, so Ryan took it from her. I was holding Emilia. Emilia reached over, grabbed the blankie from Ryan, and returned it to Ella. She knows who the blankie belongs to.
