Tales of a Duck and a Butterfly

About two years ago, we bought the cutest, fuzziest hooded towels for the girls...a yellow duck for Baby A, and a bright pink butterfly for B.

At just over a year old, they couldn't tell us how much they loved their towels, but their big smiles - and soon after, their voracious signing - were quite clear.

Our duck and butterfly towels aren't quite as fuzzy as they once were, but the girls still love them, just the same. After every bath, they give them nose kisses and declare, "Thank you for drying me off!" before they trek to the hamper.

We'll have to retire our towels before long, but they've certainly served us well. I look forward to being joined by a couple of new fuzzy bathtime friends...but not before I got one more photo session with our beloved duck and butterfly.

I'm linking up with Twinfatuation for Way Back When-esday. Thanks for hosting this trip down memory lane, Miss Cheryl!

Our girls' first towels were a duck and a bear. They have not been used as towels for a very long time. They are now capes that get worn around the house by little superheroes.

Retirement doesn't mean death, it can be doing something else.

ahhh....I just bought 2 at Target for the kids for Easter while I was in Florida...they seem big enough for at least a year...I hope!

I also hope they love and cherish them like your little duckie and butterfly!

I love yours!

I got a TINY towel as a baby shower gift - Connor was out of that when he was about 9 months.

But I had two towels (plain white) with pink and green trim. They still fit Kendra (!) so she's still using them. I had to get bath towels for Connor. He uses a green and a plain white :)

I'm thinking you could make those into a pillow? Don't ask me how - just send them to Mandy :)

We have some cute hoodie towels my mom made the kids and we love them, too! I'll be sad when they outgrow them! This makes me want to dig back to a fave pic of my 2 wrapped up in them, too!

We have hooded towels that are going to be around for a while too. One's a duck and the second is some pink animal that I never really identified
