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 🙂
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.
Ah, I love to bake cute things like that!
Got up today and started making a shortcrust for the apple cake I’m making later. Now I’m at my second cup of coffee an checking emails, writing a blogpost. The family is coming over at around 3pm and in the evening the Lover and I are going out for dinner.
The biggest Pizza in the City.
Half Italian Sausage, half veggies.
I invited my boyfriend for a birthday dinner, we watched “Despicable Me 2” before that (cute movie, the first is cuter and funnier but pt.2 is good too).
The pizza is so big it hardly fits on the table (and plate) and guess what?! I ate it all!
My dad has a pneumonia and I’m sad. I wished for everybody to be healthy on my birthday but… well, last year was great and next year will be great again too. You just can’t have everything you wish for…
