Eeyore

I take Bubbles grocery shopping once a week. Each time, she squeals with delight when she sees a particular stuffed toys - filled shelf from afar. This is what happens:

She'll shout "Bear!", wave excitedly, and reach out to touch the plushies. Next up is her display of discernment. She'll give a friendly smile to Piglet, pat Winnie, shake her head at Tigger, and insist on hugging Eeyore. She'll hold him close to her chest, pat him lovingly and sometimes even go into a familiar thumb-sucking state usually reserved only for home.

Sweet as she is, I get even more gooey inside when she obediently hands him over to be put back on the shelf (his home, as I tell her). This happens when I say we have to go home and that we'll come by again the following week. Then from afar, as we go about picking up items on our shopping list, she'll wave to Eeyore and friends whenever she sees the shelf.

Yes she's always be very clear about her preferences! Since a little bub. I'm curious how this trait will pan out as she gets older and I pray I'll be wise enough to handle it!
