When Buddy was born, I either bought or was given a tiny square blanket in an aqua color. I think I bought it at Kohl's, but it just might have been a shower gift.... It's been about 11 years ago, so I'm a little foggy on the details.
This "blanket" is an exact square and not really large enough to be a covering type of blanket, but it has a waffle weave knit pattern, accompanied by an edging of about 2 inches that is a nylon (or satin-y feel) material.
Buddy never took to it, instead, he preferred his "tatty rags". Which were the "fancy burp cloths" made of terry cloth with a stitched trim. He liked to gnaw on the trim and thusly, they became increasingly ratty and gained their name of the "Tatty Rag". He would cry and carry on at night if he did not have a tatty rag in his bed.
Luckily for us, the fancy burp cloths were plentiful and easy to find. I bought a boat load of them. The Evil Twin would throw them out as they became ever rattier.
Fast forward about 8 years. I had Sissy and I had also kept all of Buddy's blankets. I figured a receiving blanket was a receiving blanket - color be damned.
Before she was born, I washed them all up, including that small mint colored blanket that Buddy never cared for much.
Somehow, Sissy found it amongst all the other blankets in her room. She calls it "Nap" or "Sleepy Bye".
Turns out that little tiny square is a Baby Morgan blanket. I decided to do some research on it the other night because Sissy loves it so and I can't really get it away from her easily to wash it. I figured if we had a stand by or two, they could be on hand for emergencies.
Baby Morgan company stopped producing the blankets in 2003 - a full THREE years before Sissy was even born! Apparently, the blankets are still very popular and my only searched turned up used blankets on eBay for outrageous prices.
In my desperate research, I learned that a company called Bright Future took over Baby Morgan and produced almost identical blankets. But, I need a MINI one. In the aqua or MINT green color.
I think I may have to add more personal insurance to our home for Nap. As it is, we're getting to the stage where Nap must accompany us on all outings.
Leave it to one of my kids to become attached to something no longer manufactured.
