i'd like you to meet sunshine (or 'shunshine', as my son always called her). i made this little doll for my son, caleb (now 18), when he was a very small baby. i was actually making the doll for my daughter, naomi (who was 4 at the time)...but my sweet little boy decided she was his and would not let her go.
he slept with this little doll until he was quite old (older than he would ever care to admit now) and she comforted him always. she sits on the shelf in his room now. in a very special spot. still comforting him, it seems. little handmade waldorf dolls are like that - they find a certain place in your heart and never leave there.
