I don't think I have ever really blogged about Grayce and her beloved Taggy. And, because I am with a lack of content due to extremely cold temps and no new pics or really old ones ready- well, I am making it work.
When I was pregnant with Gray my Granny discovered these special Taggy blankets. They were essentially little squares of soft fleece with satin ribbons looped and sewn in, made for babies and kids, because often they like the feel of satiny tags on blankets. So why not a whole blanket of tags! The catalogs and stores had them for $20- but Granny can make anything, so she whipped some up. This pink one was for Grayce.
Grayce will be 5 in March and the original Taggy is still "the one". After about year 1, and 2, and 3- Granny made her new ones, and made them for me to sell in my monogramming shop. I would find Granny the materials on sale and send them her way. However, Grayce would never take a new one- original Taggy is her only love. Until her _(I'm not even saying) birthday, it was her "TaggyPacee" combo that she had to have and we had to keep track of...happy now it's only Taggy. Taggy has been lost and found many times over. Once recenlty, it spent 2 nights at Steak and Shake. Steak and Shake is now forever "that place I lefted my Taggy" to Grayce. (She says that every Tuesday when she requests to eat there after gymnastics!) The gran-ma's suggested this last time on our hunt to track it down, we should have left it very lost. But, no. I can't. She would probably get over it (um, maybe)- but to me it is part of her and smells like her little baby spirit. Taggy used to be very pink. Now it is "dishwater pink", pilled, and missing some loops. But no amount of detergent or bleach can wash all that Taggy lovin' away.
