On Sunday, one of my friends came to visit with her baby girl. She is so adorable and we had a good time together. Still, when they left, I felt a little frustrated and sad. I thought about my friend's baby, who has all the right toys, the perfect clothes, the cute bag to carry her stuff...
These are little cushions stuffed with different things and with little ribbons hanging her and there for him to chew (babies seem to love chewing strings and ribbons).
The box took me quite a while to make and it looks a little clumsy, I'm sure there's a faster and better way to make one, but that's how I designed it and that's how it came out. In the end, it cost me no money because I used only stuff that I had at home, it just required time and patience and dedication, but isn't it what love's about?
Swann seems to like them, he has a preference for the "W" which is filled with black-eyed peas. When he grows, he can learn how to spell his name with these cushions... if he hasn't ruined them by then :)
* No, in fact, I don't wish I could get him all the fancy things you find in the stores, because then I probably wouldn't think of making him something special that will tell him, years later, how much I love him. And also, there are so many people who have much less than what we have, how spoiled can we be to always want to buy more?
