Baby Boxes of One Year Ago

Twelve months ago tomorrow we decided it was time to open up the stash of baby items that we had kept from all of the children’s ‘baby years’!

We had talked about putting together the ‘Baby Boxes’ for such a long time.

Items ranged from tiffin boxes purchased in Goa, India, to baby spoons, teething toys, pyjamas, swaddling, you name it, it was there.

If you want to smile, you might want to scroll back on my blog entries to 8th September 2019. The full length movie is around 10 minutes, but it is a real laugh. Thor excels in his unique comedy and Caleb insists that Aaliyah’s dress, a 1st birthday present is his!

But if your visit here is a fleeting one! Here is a very small snippet of what they got up to.

  1. Hahaha I love Thor reliving his baby days! I opened up our baby boxes when we moved house and Ollie developed a fondness for Benji’s first dummy! Lovely things to keep in any case 😊

    1. Aaawww… that is sweet Ingrid! Every item has a memory! Even the memory of the boxes themselves! Mind you, ours are hermetically sealed for 15 years! If Thor got into his!!! Well, goodness knows – he’s such a hoarder anyhow! Lol

      1. We did something similar for T where every birthday we write a letter for him to open at age 16. It’ll be curious to see his reaction to it. Your kids will love it!
