They are her absolute favorite food.
She loves them, and loves to share them with her dogs.
She holds her Cheerios tightly in her hands as though it's the last one she will ever get. She clings to them and treasures every Cheerio. (note: we give her as many as she wants, it's not like she is Cheerio deprived)
Today she was a little under the weather so she stayed home from daycare. We put her in her highchair for breakfast, gave her some Cheerios and watched the Today show.
She excitedly ate them and then fell asleep with one in her mouth.

And then we found this in her crib. A cheerio. Yep, the hoarder clung so hard to her Cheerio that she held it in her hands for 3 hours while napping.
I'm actually most surprised that she didn't eat it when she woke up. A warm, pre-softened Cheerio with 3 hours of nap sweat. Delish.
