Evan and his Viking Hat
This is my beautiful son, in the awesome viking hat that thorsbaby bought for him, because thorsbaby is both generous and a fashonista, and he always knows what is just right.
(Thanks to rufinia for the photo. Yes, R, I cropped it. :-P )
I find it really interesting how virtually all Scadians knew he was a boy right away, despite the floor length gown, but all the hotel staff assumed he was a girl. Cultural norms, much?
We had a lovely time at Birka, although we need to sort out a better evening childcare arrangement so that both Ivan and I can go out and be social after E's bedtime together, rather than in shifts.
And many thanks to marysdress and dauphin1974 for the bag of clothes (he'll need to grow a bit) and the awesome toy. Every child in the place had to play with the toy. Its fabu.
If you have photos of my son, let me know please? My camera told me "the batteries are exhausted" and the hotel store didn't have more, so I have no pix of him in his fancy new duds. Sadness.
