For Christmas 2011 Oliver was gifted Howie Baby, a Waldorf-inspired heavy baby doll that I handmade over many many months. Today, Patrick was gifted a similar doll (also handmade, but I used a kit instead of going to weeks of mommy-and-me classes).
P’s new baby was carefully swaddled in one of his old baby blankets, and gently handed over.
P is fairly thrilled with his new baby.
I far prefer when P tries out new concepts on inanimate objects instead of his brother.
