Pig

Leo’s big cuddly pig, a gift from Sue and Jeff, has certainly taken on a special role for Leo. He’s always recipient of the biggest bedtime cuddle, and is often carried/dragged around rooms.
But now it’s more than that. Leo fell over running in the hall this morning. Sitting on my lap, lots of crying, Leo reached out to Claire and demanded ‘Pig!’ When she brought him in, Leo cuddled him and calmed instantly. Then wandered off to chat about the bin, happy as anything. Leaving me in tears on the bed, sad that i can’t comfort him but happy that he has invested an object with enough of himself to be able to let it sooth him.
