monkey and bear

In the morning I like to put on Ys from Joanna Newson
Jonas loves it, specially when I join in. He laugh loud, 
seeing me dancing and singing to the music. 

The song of Monkey and Bear we love the most!

"But for now, just dance, darling.
C'mon, will you dance, my darling?
Darling, there's a place for us;
Can we go, before I turn to dust?
Oh my darling, there's a place for us.
Oh darling,
C'mon will you dance, my darling?
Oh, the hills are groaning with excess
Like a table ceaselessly being set.
Oh my darling, we will get there yet."

Today Sarah and Josse came by. We took a long walk, enjoyed the 
sun in the garden and lazed out in the sofa the rest of the afternoon.

Holiday in Les Perriére, day four. Sunny and cold.
Yesterday we made paper cranes and today we saw 
real cranes flying over.

for the first time

Jonas had many first "things" last week; first two little teeth, for the
first time he ate potatoes with vegetables, he had his first cold, for
the first time he had to brush his teeth.
It's so nice to see how he's evolving and learning.

after the rain

We all had a cold these last days. Now, finally, the sniffing, coughing
and sneezing stopped.
I was so happy this evening, to see it was still light outside at six
o 'clock. After all these dark and rainy days we had, the sun even
appeared for a moment.
