To My Super-Dad

It’s Finnish Father’s Day today, so just wanted to wish my own father a Happy Father’s Day – or “Hyvää Isänpäivää” as we say in Finnish! 

Friday Chaos

Posted on

Ever wondered what it’s like to have a baby? This photo pretty much sums it up. Just came home from the grocery shop with Lana and realised what a mess our living room is. And the best way to deal with it is obviously to take a photo and share it with the rest of the world…:)

This is how happy we are about going to Finland tomorrow 😀 Yesterday we took Lana out on the back terrace to work off some energy, and she was running around

Our Weaning Story

Posted on

Introducing Lana to solid foods was something I eagerly looked forward to, so much that I even started a couple of weeks before she turned 6 months. She could stay in a sitting position and reach out and grab things, so I thought it would be a very straightforward thing – that Lana would happily eat whatever I gave her and would pretty much be using a fork and knife by the age of one…Turns out my expectations were very unrealistic!

My Big Little Girl

Posted on

It is crazy how time flies when you watch your children grow. My little girl is now 7 months old. 7 months! I didn’t expect her to be so “big” already – I thought I would have that little helpless baby to care for for a bit longer. Instead I now have this big little girl who’s crawling, standing up, sitting up, eating (or well, trying to…), “talking”, teething and who’s just so brave and independent already!

September Is Here!

Posted on

Summer is over, September is here and it’s time to stop slouching and get back on track – and to do so I needed new running shoes (I left my old ones in Finland). Asics has been my shoe of choice ever since I started running 6 years ago, but after visiting the Nike outlet last weekend and finding these babies for a very very good price I decided to give Nike a go. Not usually a fan of pink, but have to admit they do brighten up the run!

A Little Girl In A Big Bed

At almost 5 months Lana is now too big for her moses basket, so we’ve finally moved her to her massive cot bed where she can roam around with her little plush friends. At the moment she’s still so excited about being in her new bed that she’s started waking up to play in the middle of the night…She falls back asleep on her own though and I’m sure it’s just temporary, so I’m not too worried!
