Billie's first birthday party

This last saturday, we invited friends and family to celebrate Billie's first birthday. We don't have a backyard at our place so we moved everyone to UNICORN's backyard. It was lots of work for us but so cosy and nice there.

We have a tradition here with the first birthday cake. It has to be chocolate and you give it all to the baby so they get a real first taste of a cake. They usually go crazy with their tiny hands in it and get all dirty but Billie is always different... She only ate the strawberries and didnt even dare to touch the chocolate cake. She managed though to get her clothes full of strawberries an dirt! It was fun to celebrate her first year with all our friends and family. She got spoiled with gift and love. Thanks to everyone who came and made this birthday a one to remember!

1 an

Today is very special for us- Billie is one year old! To celebrate the event, Billie started saying her age in french! So she goes around in the house saying 1 an! 1 an! 1 an! It's very cute and of course I'm very proud! 

(Billie one year ago when she was only few minutes old)

I remember clearly one year ago. She was born at 5h50am, 8,8 pounds, round and beautiful and already very awake. I don't think I'll ever forget these precious moments. Today is full of emotions for Jonas and I. It's been one year now that we've become parents. It's been such a journey since then but the most beautiful one. I love being Billie's mother and I feel so lucky that she is in my life. I love her more than I could have imagined I would have loved my kids. I'm so excited for the years to come. I know she will keep making our life beautiful. 

Bonne fĂȘte mon petit chaton. 

Maman qui t'aime xoxo

Papa in TO

So sorry for the lack of post this week. I've been very busy with work but also organising Billie's first birthday party and taking care of my lovely daughter all by myself. Yes, Jonas was gone this week. He had to go to Toronto for work. So, Billie and I enjoyed some quality time together. 

We played and read book, went for long walk with Rubie, ate our favorite meals for dinner and cuddle all the time. We usually do all these things when papa is home but for some reason, when I'm alone with her, these activities feel new and different.

It's nice to have some "alone time" with Billie. I feel time is flying and with work I dont always enjoy every moments. This week I did for sure and I'm very happy about it even though I can't wait for Jonas return tomorrow!

And we're back!!

I feel we just came back from a dream. Yes, Corisca is that beautiful. We just spent a week on a beautiful island full of history, turquoise sea, impressive high mountains, vineyards and good cheese. 

We rented a house with my husband's family. It was lots of fun to hang out with them the whole week. We cooked good food, share good bottles of wine and tasted amazing cheese together. We also visited two impressive old cities built on the rock- Bonifacio & Calvi. In Calvi, you have a perfect mix of mountains, clear turquoise sea, white sand beach and old beautiful city- dreamy!

It was a week to dream of. Billie loved spending times with her Swedish family, walking around everywhere we were letting her free and swimming in the pool with her cousins! She is a very good traveller. Always patient, sleep when she should sleep (except on the way back home!), never cry or complain. I love spending all my days with her. We get so attached. Today, monday, was so hard for both of us. The separation at daycare was harder than usual. But, thats life! If we want to travel again, we have to keep working!

Billie, Jonas and I are going away, again, but this time, we will be visiting CORSICA! Can't wait to see Jonas family and take time to relax. We are very curious to discover this part of the world we never visited before. 

I heard good thing about their wine, their food and the beautiful beaches... We will be back in one week with new adventures and fun stories! Have a good week!

Yesterday evening we had another event at UNICORN. This time, COVET was presenting their SS11 collection. Again, Jonas was our DJ for the evening so Billie came and hang out at the store with us. 

She was a little bit more curious than last time and she was much more confident in her walking skills. This mean that I spent most of my time running after her or holding her in my arms. I finished the event exhausted and ready for bed (but sadly not her...).
