Lost, but Found again!

So since Aaron was a in just a couple days old...
he's had this blankie! It was just a taggie blankie that I bought for him and mother embroidered a giraffe and his name on it. This blankie has been through a LOT with my son. It doesn't look quite as bright and shiny anymore, that's for sure. He has slept with it every night...and for naps!
