because boys need to nurture too

Allow me to introduce our home's newest, cuddliest friend...

aw, baby doll

"Baby Doll" -- made by yours truly for Jacky's birthday. 

He had been requesting a doll for a while, after seeing some pictures of them in books. He stared and stared at the photos, intrigued and strangely shy. As his birthday drew near, I checked in with him again ("are you sure? you still want a doll?" mm-hmm.). I dove in and made one, hoping he'd actually like it.

Birthday morning: I placed Baby in a cluster of stuffed animals and waited for him to notice... Instantly: "baby doll!"  KISS. Cuddle.

All together... awwwwwww.

aw, baby doll

Inspired by Waldorf dolls, and a Martha riff in this crafting encyclopedia. Fashioned out of too-small jammies and mama love. Awwwww.
