Stuff Liam Loves: Froggy Blanket

We live in a pretty family-friendly neighborhood, so I was not surprised when Liam and I encountered an inquisitive four-year-old while we were on one of our nightly walks this weekend. She needed to know what his name was, how old he was, how big he was, and if we were at the football game on Friday night. When we were all done answering those questions, she said, "He's cute. AND he has a nice blanket." I'd have to agree with both of those points.

I got the Carter's Just One You Frog Receiving Blanket as a baby shower gift. When Liam was younger, its stretchy knit fabric made for a great swaddle, and the same lightweight fabric has made it great to throw over his legs when we go for walks on these late summer nights. We also got the matching bibs and onesies, and the frog print is really cute. It's small enough that it's easy to fold up and carry along with me when we go on shopping trips, and Liam seems to love how soft it is. Overall, it's been a great blanket that's held up well over the past few months.
