Because it's been days and days

Since you have seen Rigg that is...so just for you, because I am nice like that...

Thanks Auntie Jennie and Uncle Nick!!! We love the blanket!







Anyone know how to get little pilly fuzzies off knit pieces, like a sweater or favorite brown and white baby blanket??? I just washed it and now it is pilled and fuzzy...any suggestions?

Rigg is so stinking handsome! I just want to rub his little head - I'll refrain, though, pending your permission. : ) Have you tried using a razor blade to 'cut' the pilling pieces off? That works for me sometimes but takes more patience than I usually have.

They make "razors" for shaving items that get pilly. You can get them at Walmart or any other mass merchandiser. Also, you can check online...The "big daddy shaver" (I know, hilarious name) works great on all of Aaron's military gear!

Those photos are amazing! You both look beautiful beyond belief. And the Rigg blankie is one of the coolest things I have ever seen! As far as the "pills" are concerned - I take duct or packing tape and wrap it around my hand inside out. Then I rub the clothing, and the fuzzies come off pretty easily.

Cute baby, cute mommy! And I love Rigg's black blanket!

Sometimes, carefully running a fine tooth comb over the blanket works, especially with the big pills!

Cute baby! :)

Cari,
I meant to leave a comment quite some time ago. Rigg looks adorable and that blanket is the coolest blankie I've seen in a long time! Tiffany's recommendation is what I have done in the past. Duct tape works well. You DO look great with your new little bundle of joy. I will pray for you guys. That Captain enjoy driving and that he is feeling OK. That you... get rest and peace and joy in this new adventure you have with your very big very beautiful boy Rigg. I'm praying for him too. For blessings abound! Peace! - jen

He is absolutely too adorable for words! I agree with whomever said "mini-captain" because he really is!!!

About the piling... take a cheap bic single blade razor and shave it off. I have a coat that I shave every winter because it piles like crazy!
