Viktor is 10 months old!

Viktor has turned 10 months old! It’s only a couple of weeks ago that he managed to stand up by himself without holding on to something. He can’t walk yet, and he’s not standing up on his own, but now and then we do manage to make him let go of whatever he’s holding on to.

It’s strange seeing someone so small grow up so fast, learning new things every day and slowly progressing.

Progress report: Week 43

I’m super excited to announce that I’ve finally hit a new milestone in my weight loss journey;

I weigh 99 kg!

I probably could have gotten down to two digits a few months ago, but I plateaued for a while and had to figure out a way to change up my weight loss strategy. I’m glad to say I’m losing weight again now, at a steady pace. Up to 1 kg per week seems to just melt off me, and it feels great to look at the scale from week to week.… Read more


Viktor is 9 months old!

Viktor got a whole month older a few days ago, and I keep seeing more of his personality every day. He has the best laughter, and he loves being tickled almost as much as he loves the anticipation of maybe being tickled in the future. Sometimes he’ll randomly shoot me a look, I’ll make a stupid face, and he’ll laugh his pants off. It’s the best thing.

You know how mothers always say their kid is the best and the cutest in the world?… Read more


DIY cat shithouse

We have two cats, and with cats comes litterboxes. Our apartment isn’t massive and we have to have the litterbox out in the open in the hallway, which isn’t exactly ideal with a little baby crawling around. There’s a sliding door between the living room and the hallway, and it was only a matter of time before Viktor figured out how to open it. So we decided to build a little house to keep the litterbox in. I got the idea from this reddit post.Read more


Viktor is 8 months old!

My boy is a month older already. At 6 months he could crawl. At 7 months he was standing up by holding on to something, all by himself. And now he’s walking (or, I guess, sidling) around the table while holding on for his dear life.  He also got another two teeth, which makes 4 so far. My little baby doesn’t seem like much of a baby anymore.

I wake up in the morning, go to his room to get him ready for the day, and I find him standing up in his bed with the biggest grin on his face.… Read more


Viktor is 7 months old!

About a week after Viktor turned 6 months old he started sitting up on his own. The day ofter that, he was crawling! Before he was crawling I kept thinking “come on, start crawling already!” but now I kinda wish he was a little less mobile. Everything has to be baby-proofed, and still he manages to crawl into every nook and cranny that I didn’t think of. I’m basically just on guard all the time to make sure he doesn’t stick his nose where he shouldn’t.… Read more


Viktor is 6 months old!

Viktor turned 6 months old a few days ago, and he got his first haircut to prepare for the photoshoot! I saved up a little bit of hair in a small bag to store in his baby book. My mother did the same for me, and it’s quite fun to see the difference in hair color from when I was a baby and compare it to my hair today.

It was about time to give him a haircut anyway, because he kept getting hair in his eyes, and people kept assuming he’s a girl.… Read more
