Dickie has done great with his borrowed blanket. I am shocked!!! I thought for sure I would be buying a replacement within a week. The only mishap is a broken snap and I am not sure it was 2yo destructo related. I decided that I was pushing my luck and it would be best to get him his very own blankie before he wrecks Josey's.
Stateline had a sale and I was able to get a 1200D blanket for under $70 bucks with free shipping. It couldn't have come at a more perfect time because the one he is wearing just started leaking today. I put his new blanket on tonight and it fits great. Saxons can be shorter in the back, narrower, and have less belly. This is exactly what he needs!! He is tall but still very babyish so he swims in blankets with a roomier cut. I would suggest the Saxon's for those of you with narrow baby's. They look great on arabs too. He looks quite fetching in the purple plaid. I know he will outgrow it by next year but it will fit Romeo so it won't go to waste.
