After saving baby clothes from her two sons, Mom finally got her memory blanket for her 60th birthday gift.
Even though both her boys now have their own kids, MT still held on to their baby clothes waiting to find the perfect idea to repurpose them. Our kids are still our babies even when they grow up and it is always fun to remember the days when they were little.
For a while, MT and her sister J had been talking about doing something fun with the baby clothes they saved from their kids. So for MT’s 60th birthday, J sent us a box filled with tiny little clothes from when MT’s boys were babies.
This was our first request for a “foot blanket”, a decorative blanket to lay at the foot of the bed. Since MT’s room at her beach house is blue, white, and yellow, theses baby clothes are perfect! This blanket is filled with rompers, sweaters, bonnets, a little suit, and more.
J sent us this very kind note after she gave MT her blanket.
“Tears and love and laughter! T was beyond words with the warm memories you created in the foot blanket! Your talent to take the outfits she carried her newborn babies home from the hospital in; celebrated their first holidays and milestones in are now a warm, beautiful memory she will enjoy daily!
There can be no greater gift in life & the blanket is a daily reminder of incredible blessings! Thanks again Jen!”
Time passes by so fast. We are so happy to give MT a fun way to remember the time when her boys were little as she now embraces life with grown kids that have families of their own. After all, being a Grandma is pretty awesome!
