Nurturing and memory

Well, I’m sorry I’ve been quiet, but I’ve been on holiday! We went to Norfolk. The caravan was freezing but apart from that we had a lovely time!

While away, my friend looked after Gabriel. I call her his Fairy Godmother!

So, I asked her how she got on with him, like, did she change him or whatever – She had previously bought him some onesies.

No, she hadn’t, but….she put him to bed at night, kept him warm, and out of sunlight. She carried him around and worked with her one free hand.

She was reminded of how she held her now grown up son, and did everything one handed (as you do!).

It’s funny, because I do this too….and it takes me back to when I used to have my son in one arm etc…..

So, we’ve noticed than nurturing is a natural thing. Picking a baby up in a certain way, and even speaking to them is inbuilt.

It’s very interesting! And Fairy Grandmother really enjoyed having him over 🙂

Interesting huh?

Here’s Gabriel Andrew:


Gabriel has arrived!

Well, I never knew that Royal Mail came in the evening! So, it’s another surprise today:) (that’s two surprises in one week already !)

So, he came well packed….

I had to get a stanly knife to the box!

This is what I saw upon opening:

He was originally wearing girls clothes ( I got this doll second hand) but I’ve not put a picture up because I forgot to take one.

Here he is! And he is heavy and his body has been badly weighted. It’s like he has a brick in his bottom!

He isn’t a reborn in the true sense, but I do love his face !

I need to also modify him to put a neck ring on, Gracie needs one too, so its going to be a bit of an adventure as I’ve never reweighed a doll or modified one either!

I hope you like him!

Until next time…Cheryl
