Towel-Blanket Giveaway!

It's so much fun to watch Natalie grow and go through all these milestones. I realize that at each stage of her development, things get a little bit easier, while simultaneously presenting their own set of new challenges to deal with.

The new challenge I'm experiencing now is her rolling all over the place! I used to be able to put her on her little jungle mat and walk away for a little bit and know she'd be right there when I return, now....I come back and she's half way across the room because she rolled all over! Just last week, I put her down on her back, on the jungle mat and went to go to the bathroom. When I came back, here's where she was.
I know crawling is literally only a few weeks off, and then it's not going to be so easy to just put her down and go take care of something!

Enter, the "Towel Blanket."

Growing up, my family had this towel blanket which was a bunch of old towels my mom sewed together. It went everywhere with us: family picnics, the beach, vacations, the back of the car for long car rides. I'm pretty sure my mom still has it in her car. She made me a towel blanket last year and I've been using it so much lately. It's been so wonderful to put down in the living room while Natalie plays. This way, if she peeds, poos, spits-up, or drools all over the place, it doesn't go onto our living room carpet, I can just pick up the blanket and throw it in the washing machine at the end of the day. It also feels better to put her on here than the carpet, where who knows what germs live!

It's also been great for hanging out outside. 

Now here's the awesome part...My mom made a towel-blanket JUST for one of my readers!! Thanks MOM!! I have so many wonderful mommy followers and I know you will love this towel-blanket just as much as I do!

This giveaway is for one orange and blue towel-blanket, shown here by my very own, fabulous, towel-blanket model.

Enter below for a chance to win this towel-blanket. 
The giveaway runs through next Friday 6/13/14 at midnight.

  4. What a cool idea! I wasn't going to enter so that the mom readers can be the ones to win, but apparently the Rafflecopter has a mind of its own, because it's automatically entered me five times without my even doing anything. LOL.
