Ems has been having a rough time. Problems with eating and her stomach. Anxiety? Maybe. She is a very sensitive little creature. Takes a little after her mother. So she’s been nibbling. Dropping pounds. Not sleeping much. Have been keeping a close eye on her. She slept horrible Monday night. Rough time getting her up for school on Tuesday. So I sent her back to sleep in my nest in my bed. Called work. Stayed home to take care of my girl. Made her breakfast, watched her closely all day. It’s been so long since we had a day to ourselves. We love Boo Monkey, but it was so very peaceful just the two of us home together. My gentle girl.
So that morning I was perusing Little Alouette. Because I LOVE them and I just realized I FINALLY know someone having a baby who might be in need of one of their beautiful little natural wooden teethers. (Bestest friend Liz can let me know which she likes or I can choose, I have a lot of favorites). So on their blog, I saw this post about making little hearts to give to someone you love. And I knew she needed one. She could use a small heart with a whole lot of love inside. So we broke open the craft cabinet and we sat side by side and we cut and we stitched.
I think I like her heart better, but we each put kisses into both, so no bother.
