Quirky donkey softie

Yesterday, waiting in our postbox was a parcel all the way from Australia. I couldn't wait to run in and give it to Bella to open. Of course it was the quirky donkey toy I won from Claire at One Claire Day. She immediately took her new doudou outside to show him her veggie patch and he joined her in her cot at naptime. In fact, he goes everywhere with her - even to the beach yesterday! Thank you Claire!

Bella slept apart from me for the first time 2 nights ago. She now shares Sam's room and it seems to be going well (though we're still working on sleeping through the night). I think I may need to change the decor soon for a more unisex one.


  1. Hello! I'm a new reader and I am enjoying your lovely blog.

    It's great winning things isn't it, I'd never won anything until I entered blog land. He's a smart donkey and I love his name :)

    I have a 19 month old son and i don't know when he will be moving into his own room but I sort of can't wait since he's turned into a right monkey waking up at 5am wanting to play.

  2. I didn't realise you were the lucky winner of Claire's giveaway. Congrats! Bella seems delighted with her doudou from down under. Hope you guys all have a great long weekend!
    ps: I thought there was only one Beaulieu in France: Beaulieu sur mer in the 06. That's where I grew up, but clearly that's nowhere near where you live! Glad to see I still have much to learn with French geography :)

  3. oh my goodness. she is just so cute!

  4. oh dear that photo of little bella in her cot made me tear up. in the blink of an eye she will be living in a loft in nyc. oops, sorry, that would be my baby. ah but it happens all too soon.

    i'm so glad it was you who won the funny donkey for sweet bella!

  5. Cute!!! And how lovely is Claire!!

  6. Adorable!! Come see my post about my daughter Skylar's webshow.

  7. So glad Bella loved him! I must say, they look like quite a pair... i think it was meant to be :) x
