🤍 pillow by Takashi Murakami 🤍 In my opinion most good art creates wonder and/or generates feelings (sometimes happiness but not always) this psychedelic flower pillow by murakami is candy to my Tsipi and she is so damn right. She sees it and smiles back at it. I wish we would have the same reaction when we look at art and its many variations. And yes I do love when artists make functional objects.

🤍 lion lamp by Little Lamps 🤍 Every morning Tsipi listens to ‘O Leãozinho’ by Caetano Veloso. It says something like “I really want to see you, little lion, walking under the sun. I really like you little lion” and those verses sum up how I feel about her pretty well. 🦁 ☀️
Marie Salomé
🤍 Noah’s ark by Maileg 🤍 Probably the cutest depiction of any biblical episode - ever. Tsipi adores each of these animals equally but it is especially funny to see her dad’s face when she is biting down the little pig 🚫 🐷 😂

🤍 tiny Nike by Tom Sachs 🤍 Those sneakers were Marc’s very first gift to his daughter... I usually do not like sneakers on babies but since they are Marc’s signature shoes and they sometimes dress like twins I must admit it’s extremely cute.

🤍 ‘snuggle puppy’ book by Sandra Boynton 🤍 Something in my DNA forbids me to buy a book - even for babies- with the words ‘puppy’ and ‘snuggle’ in the same title. But someone kindly offered Tsipi this one and what a surprise!!! Every single time I read it to her, she can’t stop smiling and laughing. It says “snuggle puppy of mine. Everything about you is especially fine. I love what you are. And I love what you do. Snuggle puppy I love you.” Not sure if it’s the music of those sentences or if she understands the tenderness they convey but it makes me reconsider my judgments on “things that are too cheesy/corny” and I will probably offer it to some of the mums to be around me. 🐶 ❤️

🤍 Lovevery subscription 🤍 Imagine not receiving amazon parcels you ordered but receiving a lovely box of activities and toys adapted to your age/needs every other month. It’s like a “pochette surprise”, but a useful and beautiful one. Two friends offered Tsipi a subscription to Lovevery and it’s like Christmas morning every couple months. It’s very possible that I am even more excited at opening the box than Tsipi who is the official recipient.

🤍 ‘art this way’ by Tamara Shopsin and Jason Fulford 🤍 A curator friend found this book for Tsipi and it’s a great introduction to contemporary art for children. (Never too early, right?) It also is very inspiring to me as I am working on an art book for kids with Lebanese artist Rhea Karam.

🤍 overall by Bonpoint 🤍 I love my daughter’s stuff so much that I sometimes end up copying her... crazy annoying maman out.

🤍 Anti UV bathing suit by Olivier London 🤍 It looks like a cute surfer’s outfit for a very adorable doll and it does protect Tsipi from sunlight quite well. It’s not convenient at all though because she needs to be undressed to change her diapers. Rookie mum’s mistake... next time I will buy the t-shirt + short option. Also when the sun is not too strong, a naked baby on the beach is much better... anyway: seeing her enjoy her first sea bath was the highlight of the week. Her eyes were showing a mix of wonder, curiosity and stupefaction.

🤍 a little alphabet by Oliver Jeffers 🤍 Learning some English words with Oliver Jeffers!

🤍 Hand sawn bib made by my mum 🤍 A very cute white canvas for the veggies-made jackson pollock art piece about to appear 😂
Marie Salomé
🤍 ‘dia de folga’ by Jacques Prevert 🤍 Every morning Marc reads a poem by Jacques Prevert to Tsipi (in French!) and almost everyday her nanny is also reading her some Prevert poetry but in Portuguese this time (because she is from brazil)! I am so curious to see how all those languages will blend. But I am telling myself that so many cultures are multilingual, so why not offer all those options to Tsipileh? 🇧🇷 🇫🇷 🇺🇸

🤍 NYC ABC by Mr Boddington’s studio 🤍 Marc found it at McNally Jackson yesterday and Tsipi asked us to read it a few times already. It pinpoints very accurately some New York life situations. A for Alternate side of street parking, K for Kitten in a bodega, X for X-tra mustard for my pretzel. Love it! 🥨 🚕 🗽

🤍 Penguin nightlight by Liewood 🤍 Have I told you before that we have a collection of penguins around our house? (Marc LOVES them) This one is the most useful one by far! 🐧 💡
