i recently made my first waldorf doll and  i just wanted to share.   i bought my supplies from weir dolls and crafts: http://www.weirdollsandcrafts.com/ .  I purchased the joy's waldorf dolls 16 inch button button baby pattern and almost all the supplies on the supply list they provide on the weir website.  i did a crochet cap with rooted hair.  i'm very happy with how it turned out.  the only negative is that the button limbs and body shape mean that  the doll...
please enter me.   my husband wears our kids w/o hesitation, but sports-licensed carriers would sweeten the deal for him.  he picked our ergo out because it was one of our college team colors.

i enjoy a knudsen spritzer or two every week.  IDK if that counts as soda or not.   http://www.rwknudsenfamily.com/products/spritzers
