What have I been up to

We visited the children´s farm in Brasschaat, where my parents live. As you can see, boys will be boys as both of them want to steer the old tractor.
A mum of a classmate of Nic came by for a quick baby visit. She is also a teacher at Nic´s school. Her eldest son is in Nic´s class and her youngest son will start school together with Peter next November.
She made Ruben this wonderful doll which is made from real sheeps wol, it feels really soft.
Hopefully it helps him sleep, since Ruben is awake alot at night. He seems to have problems figuring out what is day and what is night... so we are a bit sleep deprived at the moment... Hopefully he gets the hang of it real soon.

I found some time to make this little felt strawberry tart which fits nicely with the little tea set I bought just before I got Ruben, still thinking it could be a girl. But Boys can also play ´Tea´ , can´t they? We also bought a new car yesterday since DH´s car is broken and it is so old that there is not much use in getting it fixed, so we decided to buy a new one. Will let you know more when we get it.


  1. What a lovely gift.
    I have seen similar things and they can help baby sleep apparently!
    Try sleeping with it yourself so that it picks up your smell and then let Ruben have it.

    The tea set is lovely too.
    Great colours.

  2. That is a good idea, to give it our smell... never thought of that one. Thanks for the tip.

  3. I love the little doll - it looks very cuddly! Hope the sleep thing improves soon, it's a hard stage (I remember it well!)


Thanks for stopping by.
