When Elaina was born, Rachel (one of the girls in our 6th grade youth group at the time) made Elaina a hooded bath towel. It was too big for her to use as a newborn because this towel is made with an oversized large bath towel and oversized washcloth. When Elaina grew out of her newborn hooded towels, we started using the one that Rachel made. Two years later, Elaina is still using it, and she really loves it, too. In fact, if it is in the laundry, she doesn't like to have to use a normal towel. She's a bit particular . . . I wonder where she gets that from?
Emily has grown out of her baby hooded towels too, so I asked Rachel if she could get with her grandmother and I would pay her to make us two more towels. Rachel and her grandmother work on these towels together. When we got back from vacation this weekend, Rachel was at church with the new hooded towels. I was so excited! She made one for Emily as a gift, which was really sweet of her to do. One of the towels she made this time is a bright blue, and Elaina LOVES it! Elaina's favorite color is blue, and Rachel had no idea, so it worked out perfectly! For those of you who have toddlers, these towels are the BEST! They are big enough to wrap your toddler up in and snuggle with them for a few minutes when they get out of the bathtub, and the hood is perfect for keeping their head warm and drying their hair when they get out of the tub, too. I think it's really neat that Rachel and her grandmother do this together.
Thanks, Rachel! We love our towels, and whenever another McCrary baby comes along, we'll have to call on you again!
