MAKING- It has been a busy, tiring week of teething but in between the walks and the extra cuddling, I’ve managed to start another little softie for a friend’s baby due this summer and finish up on Ellie’s room (for now). (The Ellie’s room post will be coming next week).
LISTENING- We’ve also had a breakthrough in the bath tub department. Ellie has hated taking a bath for months now. I’ve been trying to get her used to it ever so gently, but it always ends up in tears (she’s just fine in the shower). Well, just last week I tried making the water a wee bit hotter and sure enough, she was just fine! So we’ve added bath time to the night time routine and it’s been wonderful. While we bathe, Daddy turns on the record player in the next room and lately, we’ve been enjoying Debussy’s Clouds. A little classical for me and my girl.
-linking up today with Dawn’s Making+Listening.
Thanks for playing along this week!
Those stuffed letters are adorable.
That is great to listen along in the bath. So fun! You brought back memories of bath days with my little ones… They are so independent now! 🙂
Dawn, thanks for hosting such a fun post! It’s motivating to know I have to work on something so I can blog about it and its fun to add in that musical element. Thanks so much!
Love the bathtub picture. Yay Ellie!
Hurrah on the bath department breakthrough 🙂 Also I found the following helped with Bea’s teething: amber necklace; chamomilla (homeopathic); an oil called Dadda’s Ease – it’s all natural oils made of roman chamomile and clary sage (http://www.naturalhealthorganics.com.au/Daddas-ToothEase-Blend-12ml-pr-3147.html). Hope these help 🙂
ps – Making and Listening posts sound great! I might play along next time 🙂
Renee, thank you for all the teething ideas. I will look into these. And yes, you should play along next week. It’s a fun one! 🙂
