As Will has become more and more mobile, it has been fascinating to see what he is most interested in crawling over to. If we are in his room, the first thing he always goes for once we set him on the ground is his blanket, which is usually hanging on the side of his crib. His blankie is his comfort object, his "lovey," and it works wonders to put him to sleep or dry tears after bonk on the head. We were given so many blankets--gauzy blankets, heavy blankets, hand-made blankets, store-bought blankets, and little blankets with stuffed animals attached--but the blanket that eventually became Will's lovey was the one that I gave him over and over because it stayed soft and didn't get all pilly after being washed over and over again.
As soon as I realized that Will really seemed attached to his blankie, I went on what turned out to be a shopping-wild-goose chase looking for a second blanket just in case anything every happened to the first. I feel like if I have one great skill in life, it's shopping, but I could not find another version of Will's blanket anywhere. After further investigation, I eventually found the fabric, and my oh-so-talented mom sewed another blanket so that Will can always have a clean one with which to play, read, and sleep. If we are ever blessed with another child, there will be no more wild-goose chases. I am going to help him or her attach to the new GooseWaddle blankets.
GooseWaddle is a new line of luxury baby blankets. They generously sent us a gift set including a blanket, blankie, and stuffed goose toy that Will and I have been testing out for the last two weeks. The blankets are even softer and fluffier than they look in the pictures and are still like-new (no pilling!) after multiple washes. I loved that the set came with a big blanket as well as a smaller blankie, perfect for packing in the diaper bag and pulling out at church. And I love even more that GooseWaddle has a one for one campaign. For every blanket they sell, they donate a receiving blanket to a child in need.
