Swaddled in Awareness ...




Look what arrived in the mail today!!I was so excited to go to the mailbox and find Zoey's Swaddled in Awareness Blanket.Pictures really don't do it justice.It is soft and bright and beautifully made and best of all ... Zoey just loves it.I mean really loves it.She loves the raised texture on the white side and she really kept smiling and laughing at the bright polka-a dotted side and the cutest thing was the way she kept rubbing the awareness ribbon.For those who don't know,orange is the color for Leukemia and this blanket and it's ribbon,represent such a huge part of Zoey and her journey.We will use it and show it off with pride.Our thanks goes out to Heidi,the very talented mommie to Henry,for this one of a kind,darling blanket.I would really encourage anyone who is looking for a unique gift to check out her Etsy shop.Heidi has some great stuff and Christmas is,literally around the corner... sorry for the reminder.

If you click on Etsy.com you will see the one for Ds has Ella's name on it :) As soon as I saw them, I asked my step mom to order one for Ella for Christmas. (Shhh, don't tell Ella) I LOVE IT!! And can't wait to hold it in my arms....uh, I mean Ella can't wait to hold it!

The photographs have so beautifully captured just how much Zoey is in love with her new blanket, she has told us with her body language what words could possibly not.
The blanket really is beautiful, I love the colour.
BTW I wanted to say that I just loved Zoey's little pigtails in your last post, simply adorable :)
