how many times have i said these words to my children? i’m not sure what it is about the door, but it is just so irresistable to those little hands. which is precisely why i don’t want them slammed : they love little fingers! so, to avoid all finger injuries, my dear friend gifted me with her new creation:

a special birthday gift

my sweet little friend turned 4 this weekend and i wanted to make her something special.

happy birthday noemi!
