Blanket Week!

Blankets are very, very important. They are the best to snuggle in and watch a movie, keep you safe from monsters, hide toys under and of course, can be fun to make.

This week, you will see the blankets that linger in our home.

First off, Jackson.

Many of you know that I was on bed rest with Jackson for several weeks. To pass the time, I crocheted a baby blanket for our new baby. While, we knew it was a boy, I felt our life was full of blue and went the green route. Jackson soon arrived and fell in love with the blanket I made. So I made a duplicate, just in case he lost the first one....that backfired, he just started sleeping with two green blankets! When Jackson wast just a little peanut, he had a hard time saying, "blanket" so he added the word, "may-kit" to his vocabulary for several years. Now, at the ripe old age of 5 years, 9 months, 1 week and 4 days old (yes, that is accurate!) he now calls them blankets.

Here are some photos of that darling child and his green blanket from the last 5 years, 9 months, 1 week and 4 days........and did you know green is his favorite color?

Jackson LOVED to hide his toys under the blanket.

See, very good to cuddle with and watch a show.

Not quite sure what is happening here, but I can guess it is a good game of keep-away!

The blanket sometimes just hangs out just close enough. This is Papa, Jackson and Cousin Emma reading Jackson's favorite book. (which is now held together by many, many pieces of tape!)
