A suitcase full of dreams

I recently found this children's book online. It's one of my old time favourite children's book from the 80's, I had it when I was little, but I guess my mother gave it to our nieces and nephews when we were too old for it. I believe you can never be too old for children's books though. A french teacher once told us, while teaching about Le Petit Prince in class, that you should never get rid of your children's books.

I could not resist ordering it for Emiel and already read some stories while breast feeding him. He doesn't understand anything yet, but my voice calms him down I guess. At this moment he's going through a colic stage I'm afraid. In his room I framed some of Jaklien Moerman's (the illustrator) drawings, just above the changing table.

Thanks a lot for all the nice comments here and on Instagram, about Emiel's birth.

People on Instragram already know, but we became proud parents of this little fellow: Emiel, born on May 2nd at 10.13 AM. It was a fast but heavy delivery and we all are home and well now!
