What do these photos have in common?
|My crib, before Mom and Dad brought me home from the hospital.|
(Is it just the lighting that makes it look so sterile?)
|Me in our wooden rocking chair with giraffe.|
|In our wing back chair with a straight-haired kid and a baby I don't remember.|

See the rainbow afghan in every picture? I didn't realize my parents had it as long as they did until I started flipping through my photo album this morning. I loved that blanket.
Which is why the gift I received over the weekend means so much to me.
My Mom-in-law crocheted an afghan for me, inspired by the one I discovered on this blog.
As soon as I saw the finished blanket, I remembered the rainbow-afghan. And now I have my very own.
