Danny’s mother sent a beautiful quilt for Declan. Bella received one when she little also; it’s her tradition to give the grand kids a homemade quilt. The quilts are the perfect size: just large enough to play on, small enough to carry around, but not too small or too large for a baby/toddler.
Declan’s blankie has been given a much simpler name: Rainbow Blankie. I decided to step up and name it before he could. Otherwise we might end up with “Red, Orange, Yellow, Blue, and Purple Stripe Blankie.”
I love the quilt tradition and am very thankful for a wonderful mother-in-law who gives GREAT gifts!
