Little Stranger

This will just be a short post to announce that one week ago Tobias and I were blessed with a son. Baby and I stayed at the hospital for a couple of days, but our whole little family is happy to be together, and in our own quiet home rather than at the maternity ward (which was a nice enough place, but filled to capacity with parents and newborns, so quite noisy. Who knew December was such a popular month to be born in?). Now, we spend long hours holding him, learning to do things one handed, wondering at how perfect he is, working hard at making breastfeeding work, battling tiredness and trying to find a name that “is him”.

I suppose many of you would like to see a picture of him, but we have decided not to post private pictures of him on the internet; pictures taken in costume and/or at events an exception. This is to protect his privacy, and we consider costume and event pictures as being focused more on the costume or event than on him personally. So, my friends, I’m afraid you’ll have to wait for pictures of him until he’s in costume….

  6. Congratulations! Long life to your little man! if you need help with your breastfeeding, you can contact your local la Leche League counselor or group. They're really helpful, and it's a non-profit organisation :) Anyway good luck and Merry Christmas!

  7. Congratulations! A first born son is such a special special gift. Enjoy him while he is still tiny and helpless - they grow up way too fast! :)

  10. Hej!

    Grattis så jättemycket till bebisen! Det var väldigt roligt att få din kommentar på bloggen och det är skönt att veta att det är normalt att bli lite off kanske... Men nu längtar jag mycket efter att bli ungefär "vanligt" stor igen, det naturbeiga yllet som ligger och väntar är såååå fint... Suck.

    Hoppas att du och den lilla familjen har en riktigt fin trettondagshelg (vi njuter av långhelg, fantastiskt!). Dessutom planerar vi bröllop, den 11'e februari är det dags. Skönt :)


    Må gott!
