Lee got this little stuffed fireman when he was around 2. At the time, his very favorite movie was "Elmo Visits the Firehouse." He watched it all the time, and there was a character on there named Alan. So that's what he named his fireman. Alan has travelled many miles with us and has often been the chosen "friend" to cuddle with at bedtime. Even though he has gotten many new toys since Alan, he will still chose him over the others. Tonight, I thought he looked so sweet with Alan cuddled up to his cheek.
