Back to blogging

It's been awhile, I haven't really been able to find time to blog for the past 6 months. I am surprised that there are still 66 subscribers :) That makes me happy, now I kind of want to blog alot!

I changed the address and design as you can see.  What's new? Chris and I got engaged in March and married April 8th! One of the happiest days in my life. We are having the actual celebration on Halloween! Bella is 10 months, a big girl, she is exploring every place. I am still home with her and 2 daycare boys.
We traveled to Sweden and Finland in April. Bella got 2 new cousins in April and May.

mama life & Buffalo

Not much blogging lately bc lack of time, lack of inspiration and technical difficulties with the google account.

Mama life is amazing.
She is 8 weeks and eats about every 2-4 hours so we are still on that schedule, I am getting used to it, but I do get confused with days and months.
I do need to start working out to get some strength and energy but mostly to keep my sanity. I found that maternity leave and benenfits are a MESS to deal with, it would have almost been better to quit than to collect the benefits I have been paying for. Hospital bills and forms here and there, birth certificates and health insurances..

We made a Buffalo trip, here are some pictures:

Can I get some sleep please?

This girl kept waking up thru the night. Not much sleep for either of us.

After gettin up in the morning we went to print her birth announcement, shopped for envelopes, returned library books, went to the bank, grocery shopping and a little bit of cleaning.. She slept all day of course, since she partied all night and I am just waiting for bedtime.. can't wait. A mother's work is never done.

I found this picture. Why do i look so upset and what camera is that in my hand? Where is it? I think it might be a camera from work? Last year and a blonde hair color!

Ikea and such

A batter day today, we went to Ashley Furniture, Ikea (mm meatballs) and hang out at home. Chris painted the diningroom and it looks really nice. We are looking for a dining table and chairs.

I made chocolate chip cookies and served them oven-hot with icecream, I am a good girlfriend. Then baby, Shelby and myself went out for a walk to burn them damn cookies off.

Tomorrow, a visit at work and with Dr. Richards who delivered Isabella 4 weeks ago.

Have I posted this one before?

50 Cent + Chelsea Handler = The oddest couple

I got lots done today. Ran around in Bel Air most of the day : Emissions test (Bilbesiktning for Sverige) Babies R Us, called my mom, grocery shopping, post office and all of this in the rain, with a baby and a 2 door car! I even impress myself! OMG walking around in wet socks and shoes makes me really irritated and on a bad mood.
I have to read the marketing chapter before bedtime tonight and I'm done with this weeks chores, but first I am going to read Taylor's Thurday Ten, I am obsessed, I have to read these 10 facts every Thursday.     

Now I am waiting for Chris to come home from basket ball, and see if he wants to shower with me. Save water - Shower together!

Up All Night!

Baby Belli got sick last night and threw up several times. Every time I cleaned and changed her and myself she threw up again, alot. It was hard to find a dry spot in the bed to sleep on, I was too tired to change the bed linens at 3 am.
So today is laundry day and she is a little sleepy and low-key. Feeling warm but not feverish. After Papa left for work we took a bath together in the big tub and changed to new clothes and changed the bed! What a relief and she has been ok today! She smiled for her papa today when he kissed her and that made my heart melt!
Don't forget Mulberry designed for Target this month, only a few bags available, some  stores and the online store is sold out already! A Mulberry bag for a Target price, awesome!

Baby sitter!

Wanda and Rowan really wanted to babysit Bella so Chris and I went out for a couple of hours. We went to babiesRUs and Home Depot, then a little bite of food at Panera.

It was nice to hang out with Chris and walk holding hands, but we missed our little girl of course.
Becoming parents makes a relationship stronger! I am planning a romantic night soon ; )

OMG My skin was orange in this last pic so it gets deleted!

So many gifts!

A little present wrapped in pink just arrived, with books to baby Bella from Michelle and Dan! Cute!
This girl is getting gifts from everywhere, she is spoiled! Toys, books, baby needs, clothes.. She has more clothes than Chris and I!

A gift from Pottery Barn kids to Baby Bella!

Just arrived with UPS.. I don't know the senders names so I think it is some of Chris' friends who sent it.
Bella's granparents Gigi and Avo left this morning, they have been here since Friday.
I have a head ache and lots of cleaning to do, so todeloo..

Woke up well rested and happy, baby woke up only once this night I think. She ate and went back to sleep.

I woke up and she is still sleeping. I've been on a cruise ship all night in my dreams, like I so often am, esp when new things happen in my life.

Chris made me coffee this morning, just the way I like it, with milk and cinnamon and left it on the night stand. What a darling he is.The sun is shining and I am waiting for Shelby Pug to wake up so we can go out for a long walk in the fresh cool air. Oh and I attempted to do situps, I was able to do 15 not 50 like I planned. What a potato I feel like.

New header is up, but it is temporary til I have time to make a bomb diggity one, had to get the previous one down since she finally is here!

Monday October 4th

Biggie had her doctors appt today. She has gained 1 pound as is now 8 lbs and 12 oz. She has grown a half inch (already!!) and is 21 inches tall. She was a really good girl and did not cry for the doctor, but she got sad when they pricked her little foot to take a few drops of blood. My mommy-heart hearts when they make her cry!

The we found the Bel Air Library and made a card. I love libraries! We brought home "What to expect the first year" it is a bery useful and good book about babies (When will I find time to read?) and National Geographics documentary dvd "Haunted", right before Halloween and all to get in the spirit.

We got home and cleaned, Shelby got a bath, Papa bear came home and we went to his baskeball game! He is such a good player!! Bella was good even though it was loud in there.

We went home and made tacos, now time to go upstairs to bed and watch the Haunted Movie!!

Good night XOXO

A different kind of Birth Announcement

Daddy's girl

It is very cool how calm she gets when she gets to lay on her daddy's warm big chest. Falls asleep right away, and so does our puppy Shelby. I love sleeping on his chest too, but I have given that spot to the Bella-Boo now.
I can't believe she is 2 weeks tomorrow! Her social security card came in the mail yesterday, with her name on the envelope, so cute. Chris and I ate a fresh pineapple last night, and today bella has been a boobie-junkie, she gets the taste of pineapple thru the milk and seems to love it.

Our basement flooded yesterday, we've had a hurricane and 6 inches of rain in a short amount of time. No permanent damage luckily, concidering only some miles away from here cars were floating away in the flood!

I clean and do laundry, cook and take care of baby and try to get some stroller walks with the dog, but time seems not be enough. I try to plan and use time in the smartest way. Some things will have to wait til the next day and I feel so bad when I put her in her baby swing while I try to cook or clean as I think body contact is the best for a little one, but she seems to like her swing Gigi (Chris' mom) gave her. So, back to work, everyone have a great weekend!!

Bella 10 days!

I was like a machine today. Went to the MVA, the post office, called EZ pass, scanned forms for GAP and submitted 2 visit reports, emailed a copy of my green card, visited work with Bella-Boo and did cleaning and laundry. Now sleep.

Tomorrow I am making a birth announcement for Baby Bella, then more cleaning and grocery shopping..
-The fancy life, I love it!

I love that I get to be with my baby and take care of her. One day she is going to leave me for some boy.
