This is Ewan's bestest buddy in the whole wide world. He'd break out of a dead sleep if he knew he was going to be able to hang out with her. He cries when they have to leave. He proudly wore her old pink boots for most of the winter, and dresses like a fairy with the best of them.
I love the innocence and delight of their friendship.
I just love how aware they become all of a sudden, so in tune to their world and those around them. The more I think about it, the more I do believe that the "fourth trimester", those first three months outside the womb, is a time of protection and sheltering, nurturing, staying home, being still, and just enjoying this little unfolding human being.
Now at five months - how so much has changed already! I feel as though I could miss something important happening if I blinked for too long!
So, my first attempt to take on one of these projects, hopefully more attainable than the 365 Project!
- Ewan's little crafty corner. Do any other crafty mamas find it ironic that dedicating time to making things with your little one can be sacrificed on the altar of crafting yourself? Or am I the only one with mixed up priorities here?
Sure hope I'm not!
Nonetheless I do love this little corner. It's bright and sunshiny for most of the day, and he can sit and watch the world go by while he draws or colours in.
