Shortly after Gracie was born, we received a care package from her auntie in Portland. Included in it was a blanket that is pink on one side with polka dots on the other side. Gracie has adopted this blanket as her "blankey." She won't sleep without it (which is a little worrisome come hot July nights-it's fleece!), and when she's upset we just put it near her and she snuggles into it. She has been a bit crabby and independent tonight. Stubborn with where she wants to go, and what she wants to do-I even pulled her out from under the kitchen cabinet! She was following the kitty in and got quite upset when I caught her and pulled her out. I noticed her head getting heavy (first sign of sleepiness) so I gave her a couple of teething tablets and laid her down to sleep. With one thumb in her mouth, she grabbed her blankey, snuggled into it and rolled onto her side. Soooo cute.
This is a picture of Gracie at only a couple of weeks old, wrapped in the blanket she now considers her blankey.
