Before the birth of our son, my boyfriend and I had asked our mothers whether they had kept any baby clothes that we could use for baby Thiago. The question was quite unnecessary as we knew that there were boxes with baby gear that had been sitting in their houses for years. None of our siblings had asked for them so our mothers left a bit surprised but very enchanted to collect the carefully kept boxes. We loved the idea of baby Thiago wearing something that we had already been dressed in as babies and thought that there might be some old’school stuff that could be a fun addition to the new things we had bought for the baby’s nursery and wardrobe.
What the grannies-to-be came back with was much better than what we had expected. Their selection included cute baby clothing as well as home gear and toys. Among these things, there were some beautiful treasures of which some onesies (one original by Petit Bateau) hand crafted blankets, a woolen doll and a music box particularly kept our eye. However, the by far most amazing item was a wooden crib that my grand-father had made 35 years ago and in which my siblings and I had already slept as a little babies.
Having these memorable treasures made us both extremely happy and sentimental .In my eyes, this was the perfect mix of emotions right before having my first baby.
