Elephant march - elefanttimarssi

We've been a bit sick and I felt like knitting. I've also been singing this childrens song about elephants; hence the elephants marching around the socks. They are a bit big for her, but then again it's not winter here yet. She's got time to grow.

I've also been growing, in patience. When you're sick you cry, when you're teething at the same time you're crying even louder and when you add a few tantrums... Well lets just say your mum is growing, in patience. I think we make a pretty good team though. Sure we have our moments, but we also giggle a lot over silly things, make a horrible mess and then work together to clean it all up.

When peek-a-boo doesn't work

It was all suppose to be about this owl shirt that I made for Emma. She loves owls at the moment. She points to them in the books, and makes an owl sound. In TV her favorite show is Giggle and Hoot (Hoot is an owl) and she has one owl toy that plays lullubies when you pul it's tail. So I made her a t-shirt and painted an owl on it.

Then I wanted to take some pictures of her with the t-shirt. Remember how last time I told you I used peek-a-boo to get some really good shots. Well it didn't work this time, because this time when ever I said peek-a-boo, she started to run towards me. Hence all the pictures looked like this:

Then I realised that she knows how to smile when I ask her to. So I put her against the wall and told her to smile for me, and this is what I got:

Yeah they are rather shaky because I was cracking up myself so much for her smiles. Oh dear.

For those who I told last time to try peek-a-boo, because it works like magic, I guess this proves that no it doesn't work every time. So in the end I ended up just taking pictures of the shirt on it's own, that worked pretty well for me.

Herbal drink hearts

Happy Valentines day everyone! In Finland today is more a day of friends that you love, so warmest greetings to my dear friends!!! I love all of you and my life would be so empty without you. After moving to the other side of the world I have realized how much we really need our friends. I can't describe how much I miss my friends.

This Valentine's I made these herbal drink hearts. They are so easy to make, so let me tell you real quick how to make them. I used Cranberry & Pomegranate flavoured herbal drink, because it's one of my favourites and it also turns red in the cup, so it fits for this occasion really well. First you empty the teabag (remember to keep the content). Then you open it and cut two heart shape pieces. Get some cotton thread and sew the edges together. Remember to add the content before you close the hearts.And there you have it.

Mornings here start with music

There's nothing like waking up to some beautiful music. Well I don't know about beautiful, but she did get herself up there and started playing for us first thing in the morning. Precious little musician, I really hope that one day you'll learn to play that wonderful instrument.
