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.

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


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 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


Viktor is 5 months old!

Viktor turned 5 months old on January 26, and I can’t help but feel like I’m the luckiest person in the world to have such a cute little boy for a son. He laughs, he screams, he wants to grab everything and put it in his mouth, but you still want to just grab the little bundle of adorableness that he his and smother him with a billion kisses.

He got his first teeth, too. On December 27 I noticed the tip of a tooth in his lower gums in the very front, and then about two weeks later the one next to it popped up as well.… Read more


Viktor is 3 months old!

Another month has passed, and Viktor keeps growing. He’s always trying to eat his hands, and these days he’s so close to start laughing it’s killing me. Why can’t he just do it already? He’s also making these adorable baby-talking noises. You can think what you want, but babies (and my baby especially) are super cute.

He started sleeping in his own bed last Monday, and it’s going surprisingly well. We still have to either feed him or rock him to sleep, but at least now I only feed him two times per night with more hours in-between.… Read more

Six things I didn’t know I needed

So you’re expecting a baby soon (or you just had one) and now you’re doing some research on what you need to buy to make your life easier. I’m certainly not an expert, but I want to share some of what I’ve learned through trial and error and hopefully provide some useful advice about what you’ll need.

There’s a number of obvious things you’ll need to buy in preparation for your newborn. A car seat and a pram are probably the two first things you should look into, and a good changing station and diaper bag are great investments.… Read more


1 month old

My son is 1 month old today! He’s been smiling like crazy all day, and I can’t wait to play with him and hear him laugh as he gets older. He’s my handsome little Mr. Poopy Butthole. It feels great to love something as much as I love him. Whenever he’s gone for a little while all I want is to see his face again, smell him, and smother him with kisses. You can’t spell smother without mother!

Here he is in all his glory.… Read more
