Hello summer, well, rainy summer.
My baby boy is 16 months old already, amazing. Will be 17 in just a few days.
The end of May we spent a long weekend in Austria. The weather was great and we could do a lot of things outside, like go to a couple of lakes and visit the deer park. We went out for dinner in the evening and baby-Q loved it – he ate everything!
In June we went to a wedding which pretty much took place one whole weekend. Lots of good food but also pretty exhausting. We were all quite tired on Sunday, Q from all the playing with his Oma and Opa and we from all the “partying”.
June 30th was the last day I breastfed. I wanted to feed Q during the night but when he saw/smelled my boobie he just screamed. Three times that night. I tried once more the next night, the same scenario, so… that was it. 15 months of breastfeeding. I would have done it longer but I’m also happy he decided it’s time to end it. The nights got a lot better!
Life is busy with work and a little toddler, I try to go to the gym twice a week and go jogging every now and again as well. At the moment baby-Q has vacation, the child-care is closed for three weeks so my parents and my parents-in-law take care of him so that we can work. Quinn enjoys it lots getting spoiled and all.

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 🙂
