I thought that I’ll blog lots more after having a kid, but I guess not. We’re having a bit of a difficult phase at the moment. Luckily it’s a very normal thing with kids at around 13 months but it’s so frustrating.
Q is very very very very clingy, if I put him down and get up he cries. If I leave the room he cries. If I get up in the morning he cries. So, to sum it up, he cries all day long unless I’m sitting right next to him. The one, two hours he’s napping at noon time are so precious but go by way to fast.
I hope this phase is over soon, it’s nerve wrecking for sure. Pooh!

Our little prince turned one on April 1st!
I’ve been a mom for a year, we’ve been a family for a year.
I haven’t slept through the night for one year, I’m still breastfeeding after one year, I’ve had such an amazing year with such an amazing baby boy.
Baby Q’s birthday was on Friday, he went to child-care from 8am to 2pm. I made a cake for all the kiddies and Q even got a cute little crown, the one on the photo. On Friday afternoon we had to get some things ready for his party on Saturday.
Honestly, before I was a mom and even half a year ago I thought throwing a birthday party for a baby who turns one is plain ridiculous. Here I am – throwing a birthday party for a baby who turns one – my baby 🙂 I was just in the mood on inviting friends, baking cakes, ordering food and just have a nice day.
We had a really nice day, the weather was good, not too warm but warm enough to sit outside. We had cake, pretzels and Semmeln, potato- and noodle salad and Leberkäse. It really was a nice day and we were all very tired in the evening. I brought Q to bed at around 20:00.
Ah my little baby boy, he’s such a cutie, I can’t wait until he starts walking and talking and making a lot of cute (and not so cute) things 🙂

It’s been a while…
It all hit us hard here, Baby-Q, his papa and I were home sick.
And let me tell you, having a cold and taking care of an active yet also sick child is mega-exhausting. I still breastfeed during the night (exhausting as well) and am not allowed to take anything! I had such a headache two days and was dreaming of pain medicine.
Q was super whiney and was hanging on his mommy, he’s getting better each day but it was quite exhausting just to watch him not getting into any trouble.
We are all better now, I just had a typical cold for a few days, Baby-Q had a fever, cold, coughing, running nose for about nine days. We had to postpone the familiarization at the child care for one week later so we are starting that tomorrow (and hoping he won’t get the next cold). Papa-Q has been hit the worse, he had a cold for almost three weeks. Poor guy, but he’s better now too.
So, stay healthy all!
