Blanket Lover

I have never seen a baby so attached to her blanket since Linus! The thing goes everywhere - to the park, while she eats, to bed, out of bed - everywhere. She drags it, she wears it. The wearing it is the funniest because she walks around with it like a shawl. Does she not realize that it's over 90 degrees outside? And still she HAS to have the heavy blanket. Even though she has a green blanket in all these pictures she truly doesn't care what color it is as long as it has the knots on all around it. I don't know why but it has to be that. Thankfully we have tons. Seemed to be the big baby shower gift :)

The "shawl" look:

The other two? Alyssa likes a completely different blanket - it's a pink, soft one. We only have one and she doesn't drag it around so much but she does cry for it at night if she doesn't have it. And Rachel? She likes the same type of blanket as Julianna just not as fiercely - she usually throws her blankets (and everything else) out of her crib. However, if Rachel is tired she will look for a blanket to lay on and if Julianna has the only one they fight. When Grandma had them in nursery in Florida she would give me strict instructions: 3 blankets or no blankets :) Oh, the fighting stage - that's a whole other post!!

Joshua is my blanket lover. We have started calling him Linus. His also goes EVERYWHERE with him. It can be very frustrating, especially since it is one blanket and one blanket only. Washing it is fun. Cute pictures of your blanket lover.

All my kids like a blanket to sleep with but aren't too picky about which one. Gaby likes hers the most and once in a while I let her take it out of the crib but mostly I encourage her to keep it there. She's usually pretty easy to convince. Ashlyn still sleeps with the blanket she slept with as an infant. It's faired pretty well I think.

I love the shawl look. My kids all have tie blankets too. They do make a great gift.

I love the pictures. Our blanket lover is Maddie. She has a hand-me down-hand-me down blanket that we cannot go anywhere without!! She refuses any other blanket.
