Celebrating My First Grandchild With A Ultra Soft Photo Blanket

This Ultra Soft Sherpa Photo Blanket makes me so happy



  About a month ago, I became a grandma for the first time and I am loving my new title. I was able to travel to Las Vegas to be there with my daughter and son-in-law as they welcomed this sweet baby into the word. It was truly a blessing that I was able to be there as the baby's due date was a week later and that is when we travel to New York to see my son. I was overjoyed when my daughter told me they were planning to induce her. That meant I was able to make plans to be the birth. It was a crazy, exciting week as I traveled to see my daughter for four days and then two days later traveled to New York. I was able to be there while my daughter was in labor and then I got to hold this sweet baby. My daughter had a long labor so this grandma did not get that much baby holding time as I had to head back home a day after she was born. On the way to the airport, I was already thinking about my next trip to visit my daughter, son, and grandbaby. 


My daughter and grandbaby are coming to visit!

  I wish that I live close to my daughter so I could hold the baby more often and help my daughter out. I was so excited when my daughter said yes to my offer of flying out to Albuquerque at the end of October. That way the rest of the family can see the cute baby that holds a special place in my heart. My son will be home for fall break then and my other son lives here. So Abigal's four uncles and grandpa will be able to meet her. My daughter's husband will not be able to make the trip as it is an important time of work for him but his family also lives here in Albuquerque so they will also be able to meet the new baby.



Capture those special moments with a photo blanket

  I just can't get enough of my granddaughter and I am glad that my daughter has emailed me many pictures. So I took some of the first baby photos and made a Custom Ultra Soft Sherpa Photo Blanket. I was amazed at how easy it was to make with the photos that I stored on my computer. I love that I was able to even customize the background. I chose cupcakes as they as so pretty and I placed a heart around the photo. There were so many backgrounds, layouts, and colors to choose from. I was able to use as many photos as I wanted. I just used the one as I did not have many photos of the cute baby yet. I could even choose from several types of fabric. This website had so many ways to make awesome personalized products.

The photo blanket looks so beautiful

  The blanket arrived in about a week after I ordered it and I was so pleased with how it looks. This blanket put a smile on my face and made me miss that sweet baby. This blanket helps me get my baby fix until they come to visit at the end of this month. My younger boys said the blanket is so soft but I quickly reminded them that it is mine. When winter comes, I will snuggle with it as I work at home. Right now it is still warm here and I am still wearing shorts so I just look at the blanket for now.


I have the best news!

  Three weeks after my granddaughter was born, my daughter called to say that are moving back to Albuquerque. Her husband got a raise and is able to work from home so they are moving here at the end of November. I am so excited that I can be a full-time grandma and hopefully babysit often. I can see grandma making cookies with her in the future. This soft blanket is the perfect way to save all those photos and capture all the special moments. I am already thinking about how I am going to design my next blanket. This blanket would make a wonderful photo card too. I think these custom photo blankets are the perfect gift for grandmas. They are grandma approved.
