heart filled hand-made

March 14, 2012 at 11:22 am 5 comments

The arrival of a new baby and a steady stream of cards and presents seem to go hand in hand.  We’ve been overwhelmed by the thoughtfulness of the gifts we’ve received for E from family and friends, some of whom we’ve only seen a handful of times in the nearly 14 years since our wedding.

Being a wanna-be-crafter I’m especially touched by the hand-made gifts as I appreciate how much time has been invested in making them.  Many hours of time that whisper ”we love you too precious boy”.  It’s a pleasure and a privilege to have the creativity of loved ones shaping the play space we’re creating for our son.
Most importantly Euan is enjoying them too!
