Zoey and Mr. Bunny



UPDATE! I'm so honored to have been a featured pic last week in this challenge. There were so many AMAZING entries, and it's truly humbling to be recognized in such a talented group. Thanks so much!! Click HERE to see the other featured winners.

This is my entry this week for the "nostalgia" theme at I ♥ Faces. CLICK IMAGE TO SEE LARGER.
Zoey crashes out sometimes during the drive, and I bring her in and lay her on the couch. Since she was a baby, she's had "Mr. Bunny." My husband and I were worried that the terrible time might arrive when Mr. Bunny could possibly be lost, and then she'd never sleep again. So I found a "duplicate" on ebay, and we had two that played as one. The time came when she eventually found the twin in the dryer. And now "Mr. Bunny" has become "The Bunnies. Either way, she won't sleep without the pair.
For now, sometimes they are stinky, and irritating when they are lost in the house, or must be carted around when we go grocery shopping.. but one day I'll miss them.

  3. Beautiful photo! My little EMily has a blankie since birth {it used to mine!} and she will NOT sleep or almost ever go anywhere without it...even though she's 5 now! There is no duplicate, unfortunately! LOVE this picture!

  4. Oh, I absolutely LOVE this! The colors make it seem very *nostalgic* and the focusing/blur combo seems perfect to me. There is nothing like peacefully sleeping children . . .except of course, wakeful happy ones.

  5. Absolutely gorgeous photo ~ and the nostalgia was right there with it... Your story made me think of me, pretending to fall asleep in the car as a child, so I would be carried inside!
    And of my little brother's "stinky" pillow which went EVERYWHERE with us!!
