Last night, Rowan picked up the Ostheimer baby wolf, and started calling, "woofie, where is it woofie, where woofie gone?" I realised she was looking for mama wolf, so I hunted through the basket, and passed it over.
She made mama and baby kiss, and then laid them down on their sides and declared, "woofie sleep!"
Ahhh she is so little, and so cute, and ahhhh she isn't allowed to grow quite so fast!
A moment later I was singing Rowan a lullaby, and she had brought the wolves over really gently and laid them (still apparently asleep) on my arm. She was stroking them as she nursed and drifted.
Then she sat bolt upright, and said, "sheep, sheep" so I asked if she wanted me to sing "sleep baby sleep" again and she shook her head, no, "sleep WOOFIE" she said. Yes, I said, wolfie is asleep.
"NOOOO sleep woofie SING!"
So I had to sing her wolves a lullaby.
