I learned about a new company today called Fill in the Blankie. They let you choose a blanket, and then you can write whatever you want on it. I'd love to win one for my sister's baby that she's carrying!
I'd either customize it to say his name: Emerson Charles Garst, or the meaning of Emerson.
I had a blankie when I was a child. My mom had one rule; which was keep it in your bed.
