Sometimes I like to mix it up. Instead of making a pregnant women a baby blanket with ties. I made my friend, three sheet like super thin soft, baby blankets. She just had a baby, so she has a summer of swaddling?! How does swaddling work in the summer? I don't know I decided thin baby blankets are the way to go. I've only had winter babies. She wrote me the nicest thank you note. Something to the effect of at the previous baby shower we were both at (for a different girl) she thought I was so funny so she decided she had to become my friend. I really appreciated that, because I always feel so out spoken at showers, I talk WAY too much.
