The Circle of Blankets

Gifts come in, gifts go out ...

Hopeful responded to my post by giving me both her email address and her home address, so I could stalk her send her a baby gift.  Two essentials: Aden+Anais swaddling blankets, and Babylegs (well, the Target version).  I also almost sent her a copy of Happiest Baby on the Block but I couldn't find it on the Target website.  She loved the gifts (yay!) and I know she's going to get good use of them.  I have followed her journey from Thinking to Becoming, and it's so exciting that her bedrest is almost over!

Meanwhile, back at the ranch, while I have tons of useless crap in my house, I gave away almost all of the cheap receiving blankets I had when the Wee One was really wee.  The couple that I have she loves to use as blankets for her baby dolls, but they keep getting left in the car or at Nan's, or get dirty in the outside play.  I tweeted that I was kindof cursing myself for not having the foresight to keep them as doll blankets, when another mama that is part of my online circle came to my rescue.

Thank you to @StumblingGrace and Isa, the blankets are much appreciated.
Because doesn't every mother wear sunglasses and vamp for the camera when swaddling a baby?

And Hopeful, don't worry, you get the hang of swaddling pretty quick.

Thank you, God, for my Circle.

The Aden + Anais blankets are washed and ready to go - thank you again! I just love them. I'll be sure to post a picture when she's all wrapped up.
And I'll definitely post a pic when she wears her super cute leg warmers!
