None of my other kids every had a stuffed animal or blankie...Hopey has both. It is so cute how she will carry or drag them around and snuggle with them when I lay her in her bed. This morning I gave her a bath and put her in a onsie and she was just acting so cute I thought I would snap a few pictures of her. She has been a part of our family for almost a year now. I can't imagine our family without Hope.
