Oh my, the little mancub is one month. Already. These days of celebrating this new life are filled with new adventures and experiences, and flashbacks to 4 and a half years ago when we did this sort of thing before (such fuzzy, fuzzy memories those are).
Amidst the laundry (how can such a little guy make exponentially that much more laundry?) and the spit up (now, for the first time, I understand about burp cloths), there’s:
:: rhubarb (especially in crisp form, mixed with the last local organic raspberries and peaches frozen last summer)
:: and the last of our windowsill seedlings to put in the garden (our first squash seedling ever – photo above) that is already rife with zuchini blossoms and tomato flowers and these fabulous cinnamon basil seedlings from Toronto’s (fabulous, rare, organic and heirloom seeds purveyor) Cubits on Etsy
:: quick, intense art sessions tucked in between nursings…. how much can a lioncub eat anyway? isn’t his tummy the size of a pecan, or is it a plum? this pop art-ish hand craft is from Laugh, Paint, Create
:: enjoying the last of the spring bulb blooms (thank you, giant cedar hedge, for lengthening our spring flowering time)
:: bedtime baths by beeswax candlelight (such incredible shadows!)
:: the fabulous folks at Milkface (you can order online too) who helped us with a new addition to our sling family, a beautiful black linen Sakura Bloom ring sling and then helped us figure it out (again), thanks to just a little too little sleep around here
:: mister organic honey bear, handmade by YarnMiracle, who is being joyfully attacked and loved at the same time, all the time, especially when the mancub is wearing big sister’s much softened suit
Wishing you a fabulous week!
