We’d been surprised that Bella had yet to develop an attachment to anything. Not to her blanket, or her lovey, or any sort of stuffed animal.
Then, out of the blue, one day she picked up a little palm-sized rock. And her first attachment was born. She either can’t say rock, or is sort of speaking spanish, but she calls it “ca”.
She has been carrying this thing around nonstop for weeks. When she wakes up in the morning it is often the first thing she asks for. She knows it has a special spot on a window ledge near where we eat because it isn’t allowed at the table.
Lance asked her if her rock had a name, and she chose to name it after her favorite food in the world, “nana”.
I’ve tried so hard to get a good picture of Bella and her rock, but she moves so fast that I have finally given up.
To my girl and her “ca”….I’m glad you have found something to love.
ps Don’t hate us for getting a replacement rock after you lost this one last week
