About Cissi

Swede living in London with my two hairy heroes maxing out on the glowsticks and the GTs. Also trying to grow some plants in my garden. So far not so good.

Turn around

George is away and we are busy practicing tummy time. The little guy hates it and just rolls around on his back. Every time. I don’t think that’s the point but at least he’s practicing his rolling. Go Bulgarian mountain warrior!

We are finally getting some kind of normal life. On Tuesday we met Eric for lunch and then the NCT girls and yesterday we had lunch with Linnea and Maja

It’s awesome having some other mums to hang out for the simple fact that they are on the same timelines. Early lunches that easily take two hours since midway you have to feed the bubba.

Other awesome things that happen when you have a baby is that you step in a poo nappy. Well, one of us were happy about it at least. Look at that smug face…

We ( I say we because Lukas is definitely part of that decision) have also decided to stop breastfeeding. He hates it and it takes forever and makes us both miserable.

So for now I pump and do formula and then eventually switch over to only formula. I’m sure he’ll be a happy bunny either way.

He’s got all his mamas and papas love and that is all that matters.

My birthday

It’s 4.30 am and we’ve been up since 3. I’m trying to be really boring so that he gets that it’s sleepy time but he’s so damn cute.

I’m losing the battle…blogging is my last resort.

So let me tell you about my birthday while I try and ignore my kid.

George was amazing and took Lukas the night before. Unfortunately L wanted to make sure it was a proper gift and didn’t sleep from 2 so I woke up to a George at his wits end. He was ready to throw the baby in the wall 🙂

So we just chilled out before getting ready for dinner and drinks in East.

Lukas was dressed up for mama
For the first time since baby I kind of felt like myself. I mean, there are definitely some extra kg left but that’s not the point. I wore normal clothes and just felt…normal.
We headed up to Dishoom for a super early dinner. Us and all the other baby parents.
After dinner we headed to Found where the crew sang for me over the best bday cake. A found cake!
Felt naughty
Lukas is a natural bar fly
It was the perfect bday with my boys and a couple of drinks.
And because glam I had pumped in the bathroom before drinking to make sure ma boy had some delicious mama milk.
Meant I was free to rock and rumble
While making sure my little angel was snug as a bug in a rug being fed and loved.
An absolute perfect birthday filled with love and I must admit to feeling #blessed for my family and generally awesome life.
You are pretty banging my awesome partner in life

Love is all around us

Having a lovely day today. George is giving me a bit of a pre birthday so this morning he left with dog and baby and gave me a lie in. Glorious, glorious lie in.

I sleep quite a lot and I’m definitely not complaining but since I sleep next to Lukas I’m always alert, even when sleeping. So it’s something to say for that totally dead sleep when no one is around.

I was up this morning for my cuddles though. Need those bad boys, them like crack.
And then because George is a legend he had booked me mani/pedi. Just me and an Asian lady not speaking English. The dream. She literally carved off half my feet.

After that me time I met them in Queens head for lunch.

My favourite boys. How can you love this much?
And I I wasn’t teary eyed enough I care home to a package. It was a box of heart candy from Lukas.

To give context. When I was little my dad always gave me these for my bday. I hated all things pink and heart shaped but I loved this box of candy. But I grew older and moved away and my dad stopped buying them.

So to see this from Lukas made me cry. So incredibly sweet to start the tradition again this way. Plus very impressed with Lukas organising this with granddad.

I’m feeling all emotional and filled with love at the moment. Between George’s sweetness, this from dad and mum and my girls coming to London in April I feel surrounded by love and amazing people. I’m so very spoiled.

He’s my life

Just came home from the park. Met with Emily and Sam and their little Eleonore. she’s gorgeous. I forgot to take photos, I suck. So instead there is millions of photos of us on the sofa. Enjoy…

He’s a little monkey today
But first he was all pink and starry because we believe is skipping those gender stereotypes. Plus who doesn’t love stars?

He’s becoming so fat and happy. Love it. I mean, he’s always happy but he’s a little chubster these days.

That double chin is my proudest work at the moment.
He’s my life. This is me in the bathroom. Hands up for baby carrier so you can have two hands free on the loo.
He’s just the most scrumptious little monster I have ever seen.
And I’m loving all his colourful onesies I bought from Lindex. Hands up all around.

This is what it’s come to

The total humiliation of having to bring your baby with you when you go to the bathroom…

Yes, this is my life now. He’s in the ‘changing sensations’ growth spurt and don’t want to be put down. Or sleep. So here we are. Hanging together in the loo when I’m doing a…

Yeah, I bet you can finish that rhyme yourself.

We are off to Westfield’s today. Not really doing anything. Maybe picking up some next size up baby clothes. Or just, you know, leaving the house… those small things you take for granted.

He is my little angel though and I don’t mind spending all my time in this awesome company.
This morning we discussed the Oscars. He was very happy with Parasites win. Not that we have seen it, not much time for the cinema at the moment.

On Friday it’s my bday though. And we are taking him up East. Same thing as on our anniversary, early dinner and then home. Just nice to dress up and get out.

And just because this photo is hilarious and will traumatise Lukas for life…
Bye lovers ❤️

Living life

It’s a storm raging outside. We are snuggled up at home. George took both the night feeds so he is sleeping and me and little man are chilling on the sofa.

It’s a slow life. Time just pass. I do very little and at first I struggled with that. But now I’m accepting the fact that my job right now is to grow and nurture this amazing little human. I’m literally getting paid to do this.

So it’s all about him. We eat and sleep. But we also play and sing songs and get to know each other. Bonding with him and in our family.

We are awesome together. George and I help each other out and we both want the world for our boy while being pretty chilled out. We both do equal amount of the work when he is home and Lukas is bonding as much with his dad as his mum.

It’s a pretty amazing life with an amazing little human.

Boobs and babies

Ok, we have to talk about my boobs…they are freaking huge. I mean, first comes the boobs then come I. Can’t fit any clothes. Men are talking to them. And the squirt milk.

Jesus.

At least my munchkin is happy. All the milk for that hungry little guy.

Look at these bad boys…
Another awesome photo is this from phone call work grams and gramps. He looks like a little bruiser. Hooligan in the making.
Yesterday he was cool though in black. London baby!
That was after he spewed all over himself and we had to change clothes.
Took a long walk with Moley and her two boys plus dog. Yes, we were the two prams, two dogs and three kids crew. Chaos galore.
So in the evening mama had a much deserved drink. Matching her baby of course.
And then Petko and Dessie came over winning the love of babies and dogs alike.
The gave us an awesome gift. For the little one but I would say for the whole family.
You’ll be happy with uncle Petko at any time little one.
Today we chill
