Her Little Blankie page
I made this page using Jenni Bowlin's October kit. This is about Ava's little yellow blanket. This blankie was a baby shower gift for our first child but he didn't need it. When Ava started sucking her thumb I decided to try and give her the blankie and see if that would comfort her enough to stop using her thumb so much. Yeah, you're right ; ) it didn't. But it did give her a very very special friend. This blankie has been everywhere: in the car seat each time, to mother's day out, to the grocery store, on vacation to Six Flags or anywhere else, riding along in the stroller, to McDonald's, just outside eating an ice cream sandwich, always had to be on the back of the high chair when she sat in one, stuffed into cabinets and hidden in toys, and of course, each nap and bedtime. The little yellow blankie isn't so yellow anymore but more like cream. I had a blankie I used FORever - way too long in fact, like beyond toddlerhood. Zane still has his blankie as well but he leaves it at home now. Just a little sentimental topic I guess.
