A couple of weeks ago we made an im promptu decision to go to Stockholm on a two-night cruise with my brother and his family. A mini-holiday across the pond. I’ve been on one of these cruises so many times I’ve lost count – but never with kids. Turns out they’re perfect for children and Lana and Max (and Maya) had a blast!
I just realised that I haven’t told you guys that we’re moving next week! On Monday or Tuesday our stuff will get picked up and driven all the way to Helsinki and on Thursday we’ll get on a flight to Finland. We were going to wait until the papers for selling our flat were signed, but since no one seems to know when exactly that will be happening we just went ahead and booked our flights!
The weather today has been glorious, but I can’t say I’ve been able to enjoy it properly because of all the drama that happened…It was Matthew’s sister’s baby shower (in pink below) and me and the girls were invited to Morningside to her in-laws’ place for a lovely brunch in the sun. It was so warm no tights were needed and hairy legs could see the sun for the first time in a long while!
Matthew’s sister sent me a link to this sister snapshot blog post and said it’s something she wants to do when her baby arrives – have I told you that she is pregnant btw?! Lana and Maya will be getting a wee Scottish cousin in June, which we’re all very excited about! Another little girl as well <3
Our second vlog is now live on the Äikäs-Adams Family YouTube channel! Matthew edited the video and I did most of the talking in it – although Matthew did manage to say the F-word when he hit his head (watch our next video!) and Lana just said, out of nowhere when we were having our morning porridge, that pappa hit his head and pappa said ****. Great work Matthew.
If you follow any bloggers or vloggers chances are you will have read or watched “the boyfriend/husband tag” posts. It’s basically a post where the husband gets asked questions about his wife and their relationship. I’ve been wanting to do this with Matthew for ages and figured that Valentine’s Day (yeah I know it was yesterday) is the perfect time for it, so here we go!
Lana’s 3rd birthday party is done and dusted even though she keeps asking when her guests will arrive today…I don’t think she understands that it can’t be her birthday every day yet! Yesterday we threw her a little party in our flat, and OMG I didn’t realise it was going to be so stressful! But thankfully it was also fun and it was so nice to catch up with so many friends and their kids!
I know the headline is a bit dramatic, but that’s truly how I feel after a 10-hour journey with a 2-month and a 2-year old. Don’t know what I was thinking booking a non-direct flight with a two-hour stopover at London Heathrow – but that will NEVER happen again, no matter what it’ll cost me. And actually just yesterday they announced Finnair is going to start flying direct Helsinki-Edinburgh all year round!
