This year we decided on only one or two gifts for us and Alva and keep it simple for the boys too. For Alva I already knew I wanted to give her a Maileg bunny, my mom bought her two Swedish song books and the whole Scandinavian theme thing was settled when we went in to town one day and I stumbled upon the animal encyclopedia by this Swedish illustrator!
I can’t wait until her birthday to chose another one, I think I might have started a slightly obsessed collection mania here…
I got a pair of sneakers and a book from Mathieu and I got us a classic game that reminds me of my childhood. Perfect gifts! And, the big one, the Stockholm armchair from Ikea! I’ve been drooling over it every time we’re at Ikea and I have already spent each evening either feeding Alva or reading my new book…
It’s finally mine :)
Encyclopedia by the talented Maja Säfström
So many pretty illustrations!
Alva just after opening her present, she’s now sitting by herself for longer and longer.
This is one of my faves, Alva talking by herself (or to the bunny?) ♥ ♥ ♥
What did you get for Christmas?
