Ta-ta Ti-ti

Logan chose to leave Ti-ti home when he went to Oregon for great-grandma Case's 90th birthday. Yes, Ti-ti has seen better days. Great grandmother, Mary Case, crocheted this baby afghan for Logan when he was born and it has been in his bed every night since, until March 25, 2009. He's (Ti-ti is male, according to Logan) traveled in suitcases and backpacks to Hawaii, Alaska, and 30 or so other states. Ti-ti visited Logan's fourth grade class when he was in a condition somewhere in between what you see in the photos. I thought Logan might be embarrassed or the other kids would poke fun at him, but no, all the other kids wanted to talk about their favorite blankets. Ti-ti has been a constant in Logan's life through some very tough times. I truly believe this relationship is a big part of the reason Logan is such a normal, well-adjusted kid today. Even if Logan is through with Ti-ti for the present, I will keep him forever to give to his wife on their wedding day!


  1. I can't believe he didn't take it. I love that there has been such a constant like that for him...

  2. Ah, that's so sweet. It's nice to know that you'll keep Ti-ti around for him. So many parents would probably just toss it. That such a nice keepsake.
