Baby Blanket

My baby blanket gifted by my grandmother
My baby blanket gifted by my grandmother

I have a few memories of my late grandmother. The memories were from when I was really young, so I don’t remember all the details, but I know they were happy ones. But the memory I am writing about isn’t my own, instead, it’s my mother’s which took place before I was born. When my mom was pregnant with me, my grandmother was still here. From what I’m told she was an amazing and kind person. My mom’s brother and sister-in-law hosted a baby shower at their home for my parents. Everyone in the family was invited and everyone who could, came to the shower. At the shower, my late grandmother went over to my parents and gave them her present. When my parents opened the gift they saw a baby blanket and on the blanket was my name which was sewn into it. The baby blanket is made out of both cotton and polyester and has different pictures on it which are colored purple, blue, yellow, green, red, white, orange, and brown. The blanket made my parents so happy and they still have it to this day in the hallway closet. The baby blanket is special because it was given to my mom by my grandmother who is no longer with us.
