I have a feeling that people often think, that having a baby limits what you can do. I don't like to look at it that way. The way I see it is that you can do whatever you did before, but your priorities might change a little, which means that you might choose to do … Continue reading Sushi and sippy cups
It sounds like ages, when you say that you are going away for 5 weeks. But it really isn't! We are half way through our holiday here in the Faroes. Sometimes when you are on a holiday, you have so many things you want to do and so many people to see. Our holidays used to … Continue reading Halfway through
I find the most difficult aspect of travelling with a baby is packing! Knowing what to pack for a 5 week holiday is not easy, and when JJ's luggage allowance is 10 kg it is quite unrealistic as well. Between the 3 of us we were allowed 50 kg and for once we were only 4 kg … Continue reading Travelling to the Faroe Islands

The first thing James (Snr) and I did after our first visit at the midwife was to go to the book shop and buy two books for the little happy bean growing in my tummy. From that day on we read to him and we still do. I hope that he one day is gonna … Continue reading 6 months old – we love books
Now you might think that since James is a full time photographer and I myself am a keen photographer as well, that we have taken lots and lots of pictures of baby James. Well we have and we haven't, I guess that there are always things that you wish you could change and I wish … Continue reading 3 months – 2 teeth, ouch!
The moment a child is born, the mother is also born. She never existed before. The woman existed, but the mother, never. A mother is something absolutely new. - Bhagwan Shree Rajneesh Giving birth to JJ was a bit like being born again myself. Everything after he was born was a new first, there was the first … Continue reading A mother is something absolutely new
Our due date was the 16th of May 2015. I don't think that I have ever been as excited about anything as I was about giving birth and becoming a mamma. You might find it strange, that I was excited about something that was likely to hurt like nothing else before, the truth is that … Continue reading James’ Birthstory
