Skansen yesterday. That was ace. I’m not going to lie, I’m seriously struggling filling my days with anything but lukas. He’s the best but it’s a butt load of holding, playing, food making and just sitting around.
So a day of Skansen is like a much needed break from my flat. Or my baby infested life. Especially now that it’s just quiet from the potential jobs. I start fearing this is my life forever now. I would suck as a housewife.
Dressed and ready for success in his lil shoes, new autumn jacket and hat. Such a little boy.
Lukas was scared of the fish and kept holding on so tight and barely looking.
But he loved hanging with his favourite Elin. And looking at the seals.
Plus Pappa is always the best. Especially when he makes monkey noises.
It was a tired little guy after all that animal drama. The low of the fishes and the high of the piglets.
And today we are back on the sofa. I mean, if course we leave the house for a walk but a long walk is like 2h. That’s another 22 to spend making up games and entertaining. So yeah, anyone want to employ me holler!
Only 3 weeks until moving flat. Can’t wait!! Living in our OWN place for the first time ever. Being able to do what we want with the flat. Have an attic space. I mean, come on. Dream.
I’m planning the last bits before moving. All the boring bits. But also the fun bits. Buying sofa and bed and table and all the grown up things. Plus finally planning a room for lukas. A little boy room. He’s barely a baby any longer.
This little guy can’t wait to move into his own room.
Crawling around everywhere he needs his own space. Plus if I ever get a fucking job I need to be able to put him somewhere when I have meetings.
Big things ahead. New flat, hopefully a new job, new country. But the same amazing human being by my side.
George wanted to spoil me a bit and sent me for a skin consultation and treated me to these amazing products.
Feel very loved and spoiled and lucky. Life isn’t always easy but it’s pretty damn good. With my little family, my new flat and all my friends moving back to Sweden is the best thing we could do.
I mean, got to hang out with my sister on a random Tuesday. That’s life quality deluxe.
It’s so hot again (and yes Gina, I know 28 degrees is kind of winter to you) and we are dying. Lukas gets heat rash and I want to hide somewhere cool. Which is nowhere. We go from room to room trying to find the cool. Being cool cats when we do it of course.
I’m also interviewing. I’m part of 4 different processes right now. Two I’ve already met with future managers and gone to the next round and two I’ve been contacted by recruiters. So I hope that something will pan out. Need to provide for my little family.
Otherwise we just chill in this super slow life. Summer and maternity is probably the chillest I’ve been since I was 10. I’m a fairly lazy person as is and this is lazy life 1000.
We dressed up and went for dinner at Katta’s.
Straight into the arms of Elin. Love.
Social kings galore. Lukas keeps working on his posse of super cool aunts and uncles. You’ll be set for life little one with these guys.
Mysing with Tom. You have your fashion advice sorted little one (talking to you Tom).
And always hugs with Katta.
Aaaaaand standard when coming home from a party. Mr no sleep Munthe Krastev.
We also babysat Alex. Well, I babysat Alex and he babysat Lukas. Win. Lukas was a tad impressed by his super cool 5 year older BFF.
Kix came home after a kid free after work buzzing on life. You deserve that! plus, you have to pay it forward when you can. Me in my mega chilled life right now have the energy.
Came home with Mr Awake. But he’s soo cute I just don’t mind.
It’s hard to remember to write when it’s 28 degrees outside and your brain is fried. Plus, if I’m honest, we kind of do the same thing every day. There is only so many pictures of Lukas the internet can handle…
Well, something pretty special happened. Lukas met his aunt. It was god damn love at first sight.
Passed out in the safe arms of family.
These two had a last snooze together before daddy went away to basket camp for a week.
And lucky Luke was lucky indeed chilling with the sweetest lil boy there is. Alex. Raising softies forever.
Then mama was drinking with family. Winner!
And finally reunited with the grandparents at the country house. Life!
Discussing life’s big questions.
And wearing some sexy new clothes.
Having a somewhat scary encounter with those big brown ones.
And FINALLY meeting his cousins. He didn’t even know how much he’s been longing for this day.
Hang gang ❤️
But some extra love for auntie because the worlds best hugs and laugh that one.
Yeah, it’s a hard knock life down at the country house.
But not complaining at all after these amazing days with family. We’ll be back.
Sara turned 30 and George and me took the opportunity to go 100% baby free over night for the first time since Lukas.
Shiko, being an angel, came to babysit Lukas and George and me glammed up and left the house without a backward glance (sorry baby L, we love you but it was pretty damn baller being without you for an evening).
Happily unaware we were leaving him.
We all kind of look like we have a tiny little tan.
Pre drinking coronas because BABY FREE!!
Lukas wanted some of that as well. His parents son.
We checked into the hotel and felt right at home.
Nice to dress up for a second. I still have like 8kg to loose that I’m struggling big time with (I hate talking about it because nothing worse than weight talk but the fact is that I can’t fit any of my clothes and have had to buy new ones).
But I felt good. Like myself.
It was Sara’s 30th but turned out to be her engagement party as well. Double whammy on the celebrations.
It was games and food and drinks in her parents house. I miss a good house party.
We stayed until 1 before leaving for the hotel. Even if I was a tad hangover the day after it was the best little 24h off.
