We had the afghan for 10 days and it was very loved in our home. Mostly, John Michael cuddled with the afghan during naps and bedtime, but it also found its way on our living room floor to play hide and seek and offer cuddles while he was teething last week.
CJ did a beautiful job crocheting this afghan. It's very cozy and durable, which is great since it has so many more families to touch and be touched by.
There is a journal that travels along with the afghan. It's so cool to read what others have written before us and to recognize some familiar bloggers who share this connection with us. Here's what I wrote. I also attached some photos.
Joaquin is now the lucky recipient of the T21 Traveling Afghan.
Finally, we didn't plan this, REALLY, but John Michael and Joaquin are both sporting their "i did it" shirts. I'll post about JM's "i did it" separately, but what a great photo op to get our cute boys together with their shirts AND the T21 Traveling Afghan. LOVE IT!
You can jump on the "i did it" bandwagon over at this post: Three's A Charm. The t-shirts, designed by Jennifer, are $21 (for Trisomy 21) and for each shirt sold, she will donate a copy of the book, Gifts 2, to a local hospital, genetic counselor's office or pediatrician's office. I think pregnancy counseling centers and OB offices would be great, too.
How awesome is that?
