A Day At Edinburgh Zoo

Posted on


We got offered free tickets to Edinburgh Zoo by Matthew’s workmate yesterday, which we obviously couldn’t say no thank you to – so we tucked Lana in her sling and spent a few hours outdoors exploring the zoo.

Baby Sling – A Lifesaver

Posted on


As I’ve mentioned before, Lana (like most babies I suppose) like being held all the time, making it very difficult to get anything done – like eating. I decided to give this jersey baby carrier a go to see if Lana would like it more than her bouncer or pram…And she did!

Lana's First Bath

First of all, Lana’s first bath wasn’t now at nearly 6 weeks of age, but when she was around 10 days old. Don’t want you to think there’s some child neglect going on here haha! 

New Living Room

The other day when Matthew was working from home he suddenly decided it was time for a change. Of the living room. I protested but let him move around the furniture as a test – and now I’m not sure what I like better!

Happy Mother's Day!

mothers day 2015

In Finland we don’t celebrate Mother’s Day until the second Sunday in May, but as I’m now living in the UK I suppose it means I get to celebrate it twice, right? 🙂 So today is the first (out of two) Mother’s Day for me – it feels surreal and amazing at the same time…

4 Weeks Old Today!

4 week old baby smiling

With four whole weeks of mumhood behind me today, I can honestly say that it’s been amazing and actually even easier than I expected! (I might have to eat my words on this one further on though…) We’ve been keeping a close eye on Lana’s development, and I can’t describe how rewarding it is to see her starting to smile and laugh – and today I even managed to snap a few photos 🙂

TBT: Picturesque Porvoo Old Town

Posted on


My blog posts have been a bit baby-heavy lately (to say the least), so thought I’d do at least one post without any photos or mention of babies 🙂 I found these pics from our last visit to Finland, and wanted to share with you how pretty the old town in my home town Porvoo is.
