I slutten av november, mens det enda gikk an å være utendørs, tok vi med oss Henry på hans første besøk til bondegården. Gleder oss sånn til han er stor nok til å skjønne hvor fantastisk det er å ha alle disse dyrene bare noen skritt unna huset, midt i byen!

At the end of November, while it was still mild enough to be outdoors, we took Henry for his first visit to the farm. I can’t wait for him to be big enough to understand how wonderful it is to have all these animals, just steps away from our house, in the middle of the city!

The Last Day.

Den aller siste dagen før babyen meldte sin ankomst, noen dager på overtid, og mamma og jeg dro på kafé. Det var snø i lufta, ting hadde så smått begynt å skje og jeg var så veldig spent!

Translation…
The very last day before baby arrived, a couple of days late, and my mom and I went to Rooster Coffee House. There was snow in the air, things had started happening, and I was so very excited!

Before Baby.

Rett rundt termin, kom mamma på besøk. Vi fikk et par kjempefine dager sammen før babyen kom, hvor vi bare tok det helt med ro og gjorde oss klare for fødsel. På årets aller siste varme dag, dro vi til Brickworks hvor vi vandret rundt og spiste lunch. Helt perfekt!

Translation…
Right around the due date, my mother came to stay with us. We got a couple of wonderful days together before baby arrived, which we spent decompressing and getting ready. On the last warm day of the year, we went to the Brickworks to walk around and have lunch. It was glorious!

Our Baby Shower.

Med en drøy måned igjen til termin, var det klart for Baby Shower den 5. oktober! Gode venner, interessant (og veldig god!!) kake, masse mat og utrolig flotte gaver. Baby shower er ikke noe jeg er vant til, men jeg må si det var veldig fint å ha så mange tilstede for å feire vår lille venn som fremdeles var i magen! En stor takk (igjen) til Diane, Alex, Boris og Dave som arrangerte det hele.

Translation…
With a bit more than a month before our due date, it was time for our Baby Shower on October 5th! Great friends, an interesting (and tasty!!) cake, lots of food and incredible gifts. Baby showers are not really part of the Norwegian tradition, but I have to say it was so touching to have so many come together to celebrate our little baby, even before he was born! A huge thanks (again) to Diane, Alex, Boris and Dave for making this happen.
