His first birthday

This past Monday we celebrated our son’s first birthday. Can you believe a year has gone by so fast? I cannot. I can’t believe my baby boy is one. It seems as if it was yesterday that we rushed to the hospital – a car ride that seemed would never end. And a few hours later he entered this wonder, crazy world. Two days later we were home, all alone, just us three. It was the weirdest feeling in the world suddenly having a tiny human being to take care of. Just you and your partner. But I think we managed quite well, if I may say so myself. Just look at us now, a year later. Still learning but we are an amazing little family and I can’t wait to expand. But for now one is more than enough.

I decorated as little as I could but someone’s first birthday should be celebrated, even though he won’t remember any of it. I guess the celebration was more for me, and maybe also my mum.

I was baking and cleaning since the morning and even though we were only 8 people, I managed to bake up some scones, carrot muffins and a banana bread. All well received, even though the scones looked like bread to be honest. But the banana bread was definitely a success.

I had a slideshow going on in the background on the TV. Pictures all from the day he was born until now. And I also picked out 13 pictures that I hung between two doors with a big one sign over them. He also got a puzzle for 1-4 year olds & a book about ‘Finding Dory’ from my mum, a new toy from my best friend and a sled from my brother and dad.

Hopefully this year things will slow down a bit. Until next year!

Spring cleaning

Every year I start my spring with a closet cleaning. I’ve had an urge to do this the last couple of days and today I finally found the time. While the little one was sleeping, I could at last go and clean out my closet. I found clothes I knew I would never wear again, clothes that were worn out and had done their dead, and clothes that I’ve bought but never really worn, outside my own home of course. I’m sure I’ve still got things I know I’ll never wear but just don’t have the heart to throw away just yet.

It’s like a weight has been lifted of my shoulders. Now I also have an excuse to go shopping again, cause some of the things I threw out I do need again just in a bigger size. Tomorrow I will continue on with the rest of the house, but that’s more washing and scrubbing cabinets and floors. Wish me luck!
