Renaming Ceremony! and Give Away!

First there was "hard head". Her first love.

yes you know who she is!
then Big baby" joined us

then "Soft baby" (pictured with hard head)
and then came "Nothing" (in the wagon)

All named by Zoe between 1 1/2 and 3 years old! Today She informed me that her babies no longer like their names. So she will rename them.
We lit a candle and
Hard Head became Izzybelle
Big baby is now lucibelle
Soft baby is Janey
and Nothing is Susan.

These are well oved babies.

Yes friends this is my 200th post and to celebrate......back to my roots! a basket of herbal goodies! (echinacea tincture, calendula tincture, chest rub, cough syrup and lip a page of instructions for those who may be new using herbal remedies. I will pick a name on Jan31st so leave do leave a comment........comment on your favorite entry so far.......

I don't know if I can pick a favorite post, I just love your blend of herbalism and waldorf homeshcooling, it really echoes the things i love. Congratulations on your 200th post!

congratulations on 200 - and to all zoe's babies for getting renamed. I have no favorites either. I love the news and pictures and following your adventures near and far.

I will miss calling hardhead by that name though her new name is wonderful too

I love your renaming ceremony with Zoe! Persephone has stuffies with similar names, like Purple Bear, Brown Bear, and a stuffed lizard she calls Izzie. I love how they choose the names of their dolls/animals by either stating the obvious or naming them after friends.

Congrats on your 200th post Tony! Great work. I always enjoy the read.

Congrats on 200 posts! I found your blog a few months ago, I am a homeschooling mom too. I couldn't possible choose a favorite post. I have enjoyed so many of them! I look forward to the next 200:-)

I like all your posts, but the snowy wintry ones have helped me to appreciate my oh so snowy state and kept the winter blahs away - so thank you for that!

I also love that you are homeschooling using Waldorf - I'm enjoying that path myself, and appreciate "seeing" how others walk it as well!

Congrats on your 200th post!

A beautiful blog! I love the entry on your upcoming trip - so inspiring for another homeschooling mama. My life also involves herbs (Ayurvedic).

I especially enjoy your posts on the seasonal books you and your daughter are reading , I love finding special new books to share with my little one. Also, the posts on the kids market last summer were heart warming!

Hehe - LOVE the new names. I too can't pick a favorite post, but my favorite thing are the pictures of Zoe. I giggle almost every time. Congrats on your 200th post! Can't wait to celebrate your 400th.
