Spring is here, and Kaya is crawling, so I let him range free in the garden while I worked. He used to observe garden work from a high chair or on my back in the baby carrier, but he definitely prefers a more hands on approach. The chamomile is flowering (nature’s work, not mine) and Kaya loves to grab the flowers, squeeze them, tear them apart and stuff them in his mouth. I give him chamomile for his teething woes anyway, so I guess you could say he’s self medicating.
Not everything turns out to be so palatable, though. Rocks, he has discovered, are not a very good snack
I smelled the top of his head as I put him to sleep, and after a day in the dirt and the sun, he smelled like a potato.

Lucky, happy, very cute baby!
How cute! I was about to leave to run some errands and thought I would read one last post before doing so. Lucky for me it was this one. Your comment that Kaya smelled like a potato gave me a chuckle and I’m sure that I’ll smile every time I think of him throughout the morning. Thank you for that!.
And thank you — your comment made my day!
Adorable, and that chamomile, do you make tea? I love that he smelt like a potato.. so sweet.. c
I do make tea — it is so nice to have all that chamomile without having done anything to deserve it. I find it is a good anti-fungal treatment for the greenhouse too.
