Here is 7 month old Lauren with Lala and Great Nana (Nick's Grandma)Lala used to go with us everywhere. Which was great in the summer! Instead of carrying around a heavy blanket, we carried around Lala. That was until she started loving her blankie.
Lauren has like 7 blankets that were either made for her as an infant or given to her at my baby shower. And she only likes two. Yep, two. This is because they have very large tags. (Big props to Babies R Us for making large tags on baby blankies). Here is another picture of Baby G starting to like blankies.
I was talking with my Mother-in-Law, Robin, one day about how she only likes two of her blankets. Which most of the time isn't a problem, except for when they are dirty or she was sleeping with both of them and they got pee'd on during the night (she frequently wakes up wet, stinky diaper leakage). And plus, one tag was loved on so much it started ripping off! Anyway, she had this brilliant idea of sewing on a piece of ribbon...why didn't I think of that? Now Lauren enjoys the blankies she didn't like so much anymore. All because of a piece of ribbon. Oh, and, by the way, she has a lightweight "summer" blanket that now has a tag thanks to Robin. Summer is no longer an issue. Genius, I tell you! Genius! I have the best Mother-in-Law!
Here is Lauren loving the "ribbon tag" Grandma Robin sewed on. Thanks Grandma you're the best!
Now that we got that out of the way and you understand my child. Here she is carrying around a bib. Enjoy! :)
