This is the monogram on each blanket, courtesy of my momma:
Here are all the blankets, and no two are exactly alike. Some may have the same fabric, but there is something different on each one weather it be the coordinating fabrics, thread color, etc. This is going to be a bit pic heavy, so get ready :)

I so appreciate help on the monogramming and sewing from my mom and Brenda. Thank you Tassi for caring enough to put me in touch with Lori. Thank you friends and family for donating money for the books. These blankets have been such an honor to do, and I knew these blankets would be a blessing even if I dropped them off and never heard another word. This is the email I received today from my contact at the hospital:
I wanted to drop you a note to thank you for the wonderful blankets and packets for parents experiencing the loss of a child while in our Labor & Delivery department. To help with storage I had kept the boxes shut when I delivered them, but received a phone call very soon after from one of the nurses absolutely amazed by the gifts you had made. I stopped by this week to see the blankets and it was everything I could do to hold back the tears. They are so beautifully made and are absolutely perfect. Your compassion has greatly touched everyone throughout that department and will provide such love and healing for parents experiencing one of the most difficult moments of their lives. Thank you so much for doing this for them and for creating such an amazing tribute of love to honor Jacob.
My sincerest gratitude to you for coordinating this effort and my wishes to you for daily healing and comfort.
All for you my sweet J-Dub boy
I carry your heart with me
