A few months ago, Elliot became concerned that Alice didn't have her own Yaya. So Kelly went out and got one for her. Like his, it's a small blanket with an animal head in the middle (hers has a sheep, rather than a duck).
This seemed to satisfy Elliot's sense of propriety (what kind of baby has no Yaya?). But it took Alice awhile to grow attached to it.
Now she's at the point where she has trouble sleeping without it.
And so it begins.
Kelly has already purchased two identical Yaya for Alice (as I've mentioned before, the plural form of Yaya appears to be Yaya), and who knows how many we'll need before this is all over.
Have we learned nothing from history?
