We've had a little miracle at our house. I am expecting a baby! And with the long 40 weeks of anticipation come many dreams of who this person is, proposals for what this person should be called, and, one of my favorite parts, making little tiny things that can only fit a new infant. Looking back to Pete's newborn picture, there is one unifying theme:
The pink miracle blanket. It was a hand-me-down gift from my sister-in-law, and it was the one thing that calmed his troubled soul, as he was pretty fussy. Bless his heart. Although it seems unkind to put a newborn in a straightjacket, there was nothing more soothing to Peter than being all wrapped up. The miracle blanket was truly that: miraculous.
Our pink miracle blanket has been loved beyond further use. However, my neighbor has ingeniously made a pattern for the miracle blanket and let me borrow it. Here is our new and improved miracle blanket:
I used the leftover fabric from our Christmas pajamas, and lined it with the same white flannel to warm up our fall baby. If the Lloyds are going to have matching pjs, we might as well include the little dude/dudette in the matchyfest.
