Ivy and I did a little project this morning. We do different projects almost every day. She loves to create together. We have a large, organized selection of crafting materials and she loves to pick and choose what to do with me.
I do not often share our projects, but today I wanted to because it was just so sweet.
I asked Ivy if she wanted to make a Love Tree. We went outside and she picked out a little branch. I sewed a few little hearts out of red felt and stuffed them. Then I shared with her that she could put the name on a heart of everyone she loved.
The very first name she told me to write was her own, "Ivy". I absolutely love that she thought of herself first as someone to put on her Love Tree.
