Little Ricky's "Lovey"

Most babies have a lovey--a stuffed animal or blankie that they carry everywhere and sleep with. We've all heard the horror stories about lost loveys or loveys that have been so adored that they are falling apart.

Well, like a lot of kids, Little Ricky has a lovey. However we never have to worry about him losing his lovey or it falling to pieces in the washing machine.

Because his lovey?

Is his belly button.

Yep. While some kiddos cuddle with a teddy bear to fall asleep, my kiddo sucks his thumb and pokes his belly button.

And what he loves more than HIS belly button is MY belly button!

A couple of months ago we were wrestling on the floor and my shirt hiked up enough for my belly button to be seen. Well, Little Ricky thought that was hilarious!

For the rest of the evening any time I had the audacity to sit up, he'd come over, push me back down, poke my belly button and giggle.

And since then, when he's really tired he loves to lay his head on my tummy, suck his thumb and poke my belly button.

I know, I know, it's weird. But it's also kind of sweet.

In a weird way.

Hey, at least we'll never lose his lovey.
