To everyone out there, a wonderful, happy, healthy, content, relaxed, funny and amazing new year!
Our New Year’s Eve was very calm, the three of us stayed home, Quinn went to bed at around 19:00 and my boyfriend and I cooked meals out of the “Game of Thrones” cookbook. That was my Christmas present for him, as well as the “Game of Thrones” monopoly which we played to stay awake until midnight.
Having a little baby which wakes up every day at 6:00 o’clock sharp and keeps you busy during the day can be exhausting and normally we both fall asleep on the couch at around 21:30 :).
2015 was a very special and impressive year for me, for sure. I
I’m very excited to see what 2016 will turn out and all the fun times with Quinn and I’m nosy to see what he’ll learn for new things in 2016.

Wow, I haven’t blogged in ages but I have good excuses:
- We moved on September 26 and I was packing packing packing before
- my bubby is on parental leave for two months
- We moved so I am unpacking unpacking unpacking 🙂
Our baby boy was a good boy the whole move. Sometimes it was hard for me to stop what I was doing to take care of my baby and bring him to bed at around 18:00. I’m used to working until something is done but with a baby the baby’s priorities come first.
We moved into a bigger place on the ground floor. It is so much easier for us now, no more carrying the stroller into the basement, no more carrying the baby and groceries up 50 stairs. It’s a very kids-friendly neighborhood.
Quinn is doing great, he’s such a good boy. Right now he’s growing his first tooth!
He rolled over once, on October 10th 2015, he turned 6 months on October 1st and my little family spent the lovely day in the mountains. On October 2nd I started feeding him his first mush – sweet potatoes. In week two he got parsnip and now in week #3 I give him potatoes, carrots and beef. He wears the size 68/74 now, diaper size is still #3.
I totally forgot about my 5 and 6 months after giving birth blog posts. All I can say, my belly is still there but I do fit into most of my old pants now, even though some are still a bit tight. I just quit the gym in my old hometown and am planning on joining the gym in my new hometown in November. I can’t wait to get back on working out yet I haven’t missed it the last few weeks because I was just too busy with the move.
Now I’m mainly busy getting the new place organized and looking for new furniture to buy 🙂 We are buying a cherry laurel this week to plant in the garden before the first snow is coming. Our two gardens are very small but yet, they have been so much work already. I’m looking forward to next spring so that the bigger garden/terrace can get fixed up.
I hope to keep on blogging more regularly soon but I guess there’s always a longer or shorter slack period on some blogs.

Happy Birthday to me, I’m turning thirty-threeee 🙂
On Sunday I invited my mom and sisters for a lovely brunch and I got some useful presents for baby-boy Bruno and me. It was a lovely day, we had good food – lots of fruit, good bread, sausage, eggs, marmalade… and after the brunch the bubby and I looked at a very nice house to rent. We didn’t take it though seeing a big street was right next to it and that’s too dangerous for kids (I thought) – he thought it’s probably too noisy.
On my birthday, Monday the 19th, I took a day off of work and bubby and me went for a nice walk, had coffee and cake, looked at the stroller we ordered and in the evening we went out to eat.
I had my second prenatal class this week and we learned about contractions, it was quite interesting, of course 🙂
The evenings I spent baking. As it is my last week of work before my maternity leave, I’m bringing American goodies to work.
cupcakes & doughnuts
Ah, I love to bake cute things like that!
