Before Owen was born, my parents gave him this giraffe blanket. It has a giraffe head and then the rest is a blanket. It is super soft.
When Owen was in the NICU the doctors and nurses would lay it over him after they had done their checks on him. It was just the perfect size to fit over his little body and made it feel a little bit more homey to me.
Well, the little guy hasn’t really wanted much to do with it since we brought him home (2 years ago!), but I always leave it in his crib, along with the quilt that they gave him at the NICU and the little duck that was also in his NICU bed. I think when he goes off to college I will make him take them to sleep with so I know he is safe.
Anyway, when I went into check on Owen the other night, this is what I found…not only was he snuggled up to the giraffe, but he was laying on the duck….and you know I had to get pictures…
And look at those sweet feet…I still nibble those toes daily:)
