A room for the wise

Isn't he a sweet boy!
This is Finlay.
A premmie blessing for his parents.
Who are a blessing to many others.

And I got to help decorate his nursery!

We started with this owl in the tree wall decal from here.

Made a teal, light blue and grey cushion to match.

And an owl pennant (to hang at a later date). You can find the pattern here at the pretty Moonstiches blog!

I do hope that he doesn't get any ideas from these owls. No staying up hoo-hooting all night baby Fin... sleep well in your new room, for your Mum!

But they are small.
Easily lost under the bed.
Or in the pot plant.
Or in the cutlery drawer.

So I thought I'd make these 4 lego friends a home.
Each of them has their own hidey hole behind a window or door, or in the chimney.
I hope their new owner has fun swapping them around and playing games with them.
(And maybe they'll even get a chance at being his favored toy and get to sleep in his bed?)

Embrace the Camera: Climb every mountain

Climb every mountain,
Ford every stream,
Follow every rainbow,
'Till you find your dream.

A dream that will need
All the love you can give,
Every day of your life
For as long as you live.

That is not just a message for my crawling, climbing, clawing boy.
It's a message for me (and the rest of the motherhood) to embrace too.
Thanks "Sound of Music".

A memory: good and bad

A fall.
A deep cut.
Plenty of blood.
A call to the ambulance.
Trying not to let you close your eyes.
You were crying and screaming.
(And clicking the castanets that you had in your hand.)
Elara was so upset to see you hurt.
Zeb blew raspberries to cheer you up.
You laughed at him.
Dad lay on the hospital bed with you.
And you watched 'Charlie and Lola'.
When the doctor fixed you, you said 'it hurts', but you didn't cry.
You were beautiful, and brave.
