When I was born, my grandmother cross-stitched me a blanket. She had no idea how that one effort of love would shape my childhood. I can’t remember a night before I was a teenager that I didn’t need to have that blanket with me to sleep. I would carry it with me every where I went and got comfort from feeling the texture of the cross stitches that made up those little blue houses on it. As thread-bare and see-through as it is, I still have it now that I’m in my thirties and will always treasure that seemingly insignificant piece of fabric.
Your baby’s first blanket isn’t just a way to keep her warm and secure as a newborn, it can become a lifelong keepsake that holds priceless memories for both of you from day one, to year one, and beyond! Never underestimate the importance that “a piece of fabric” can hold.
At A Great Baby, we get smiles every day in considering that we might be the special friends who provide your child with a blanket they will cherish for a lifetime. As we pack them up and say our little prayer over your child, I like to imagine something similar to this sweet grandson who has a real affinity for his blankets that we have provided him from the day he was born until now.
With Love, Mandy and Mary Zimmer
