meridith (ethan's mommy)
I just wanted to tell you that I have been doing the snuggle a blanket thing with Joslyn when I put her to sleep. I started it just before you mentioned it to me... i thought I was being silly when I started it.... but when you mentioned it to me, I thought I was not so insane. I want you to know it still works. We have a special soft kinda crushed velvet pink little blanket that she cuddles with while i put her to sleep..... still put her to sleep in my arms and then I put her down.

Thanks again for the great idea!!!
