i don’t think there is anything more precious in the world than a sleeping babe. especially as adam has gotten bigger, he’s constantly on the go. running around from room to room, crashing little toy cars, pulling out crayons to fill pages and pages of artwork, digging holes in the backyard. so it really does feel like a special treat each time i get to see him so still and calm and relaxed. i could not resist snapping a few photos of him during an especially long nap time last week. he was all wrapped up in this beautiful elephant zoo blanket that we received from sture & folke. it was handmade in switzerland by designer and mother of two, karin stenmarck. and as soon as we received it in the mail, adam was so excited to examine each tiny animal and to learn their names. you can’t see it in these photos, but the opposite side is made with velvet and linen with a little row of ribbons for tiny fingers to play with. i remember when adam was smaller than he is now, he was obsessed with ribbons and tags, so of course i really appreciate such a thoughtful little design element on an already excellent blanket. it’s a little pricier than some of our nursery items, but i would put this high on the list of gifts to give if you happen to know anyone who is expecting!
