memory blanket beginnings
Alex and I went over each t-shirt so he could decide just exactly how he wanted the 8 inch square placed on his shirts. It's his blanket, so he makes the final call. When a look of concern came about because the designs on a few shirts were much larger than our square, I suggested that we could take photos of his shirts in their original state so that he'll always know what they looked like. Happy with that solution, it was much easier to find a good square on each shirt.
Alex wants to make sure that I wait to work on it again when he's able to help me. Tim was working on a science project tonight while Alex and I began cutting out his squares, but he wanted to make sure that I would let him help with his stack of shirts, too.
It's moments like these that I want to remember forever...and am thankful for this blog in order to help me and the boys do so.
I love the memories we are beginning to make together as we begin making our memory blankets!
