When Meadow was a baby she fell in love with purple blankie. A lady in our ward made it and Meadow loved to work her little tiny fingers in and out of the crocheted holes and it helped her self soothe. She was my easiest baby to get to sleep. Short cuddle and a kiss and tuck her in on her side with purple blankie. I fell in love with purple blankie too. As a toddler, she walked around with it everywhere. We called her Purple Blanket babushka. During this time purple blanket was accidentally left under a table at a disney world. It was gone when we went back for it. :( We checked and called the lost and found daily. Left our name and number when we left incase it ever turned up. Meanwhile, I commissioned lovely lady in our ward to please make another one as soon as possible! We had it 5 days later. During this time Meadow grudgingly slept with white blanky (also crocheted) and the only one she would even consider. On our recent beach trip the kids and I were checking out the hotel gift shop while Greg and his parents were checking us in and purple blanket accidentally got dropped and left there. We didn't know that it was missing until later that night and we didn't know where it could be. The next day on our way down to the pool, Parker spotted purple blanky up at the front desk! Yes! I quickly went and retrieved our old friend. Pictured below is Meadow crying tears of joy. I have since learned to make these blankets. I think I will be making a twin size purple blanky for her to take to college one day. :) We love our precious Meadow girl.
