SUNDAY SHARING

We are at the end of January, and it feels like the right time for the first Sunday Share of 2016. I am soon heading back to work after my lovely maternity leave, so I’ve spent the last couple of weeks tying up some loose ends. I have a job that demands a lot of travel, to be honest, I am not looking forward to that! So far I’ve only been away from the Bean for one night, and it was not my favorite night… So going back to being gone for three and four nights at a time, not to happy. At the same time, it will be refreshing going back to work, having something different to focus on for a change. And between shifts, I do have seven days of off time, which makes it possible for me to be home mum deluxe.

At the same time we are looking into expanding, not the family just yet, our living arrangements. I am craving a house, desperately! So for now, I will use that as an escape from thinking about going back to work!

Here is a collection of inspiration from my many inspiration roamings. Enjoy! Btw, absolutely recommend the avocado and salmon toast, best breakfast we had all week!

SUNDAY SHARING

It’s the last Sunday before Christmas! We’ve made our way to my parents house and we’re ready to spend a week away filled with great food, a lot of firsts for the Bean and hopefully a bit of rest. I’ve packed my photography gear, hoping to capture some good firsts for the little one, like going to pick out his first Christmas tree…

Here are some favorites I’ve saved the last couple of weeks, hope you enjoy them as much as I do.

SUNDAY SHARING

Here goes, another weekly round-up from me to you! This week has been spent going on rainy strolls with the Bean, finally getting comfortable with getting out of the house with the stroller {stairs are not my friends these days}, hanging out with other Beans, adding a baby gym to our living room {fun for everyone, especially the Bean and the dog} and we’ve started on the kitchen. The kitchen is our big home project these days, revamping the old kitchen that was here when we moved in… Right now we’ve ripped of doors of all the cabinets, changed all our appliances, opened up some extra space and a bit more, I’ll try to add some images as we go along – and there will be images when we’re done fixing it up!

Oh and I ordered the Solly Wrap, it’s on its way! Finally I’ll be able to carry the Bean around with me! Can’t wait to try it out!

And now, here is this weeks gathering, enjoy!

BABY WANTS: THE SOLLY BABY WRAP

We hit the two month mark with the Baby Bean yesterday, and I am finally starting to figure out what is for me and what is not. So new lists of items I really want to get my hands on, like todays’ baby want; The Solly Baby Wrap.

We have the Ergobaby carrier with the infant insert, and I love it. But for me it’s more of an outdoor carrier, when I wear it inside I feel like the Bean gets a bit hot and bothered, even if he loves being all snuggled in there. So I am looking for a great extra on the baby wearing side, and The Solly seems absolutely perfect. The Bean is as addicted to me as I am to him, which makes it a bit hard to leave him alone when I have things to do around the house. For a while now I’ve been looking at the Solly Wrap, because I want something lightweight, simple and not as space consuming as the Ergobaby to carry the Bean in. So the Solly seems like the perfect thing to wrap on and carry the Bean with me as I clean the house, take the dog for a short walk, pop by the shop for groceries – the list goes on… And then I can keep him close to me, and still have my arms free. Unfortunately I haven’t come across anyone here in Norway that sells the Solly, so I’ll just have to get it from the US, I guess when you’re waiting for something great it’s all worth it, or something like that!

As I wait for my Solly to arrive, here is some visual inspiration to get me by! And you should definitely check out the Solly Baby Blog for some amazing visual input.

Anyone got any experience with the Solly Baby Wrap?

SUNDAY SHARING

Another week has passed, and here are some of my favorite finds from this weeks gathering.

This week has been a good week, especially for the Baby Bean, he is finally taking to food in the right way and is gaining weight like a champ. He’s also had his first trip to the city this weekend, he slept through most of it, and he is becoming more active every day. The last bit there also keeps me quite busy, but I am thoroughly enjoying this little mans company. To my surprise I am becoming quite the fan of mornings these days, and it’s all thanks to the Baby Bean. Before I used to love long sleepy mornings, now my mornings are long, but I do not get a lot of sleep during this time. Instead I spend my mornings in bed with the Bean, listening to music, basically just relaxing together with the little man… Wouldn’t change it for the world!

We are getting a few routines in place these days, finally! So if I am not mistaken I will get more time to focus on some creative bits on the side soon, like putting some focus towards this house! We are planning a kitchen upgrade in not too long, we’ve come as far as buying paint for the cabinets. . . That’s about it so far, but I am excited about what’s to come! On this creative end this will have to do for now, enjoy this weeks Sunday Sharing!

MY INSTAGRAM FAVORITES #4

I am still living in the blissful mess of motherhood, and I thought I’d share another list of my favorite instagrammers out there. I do not get to spend a lot of time on my laptop these days, most my time is devoted to feedings, nappy changes and cuddles… Especially a fan of the last one… So my connection to the outside world mostly takes place on my phone, it is my source to news, entertainment when the Bean is having a nap {he prefers to nap on me, so I usually end up with just one hand to spare during nap time} and inspiration. I flip through instagram for inspiration, at least a couple of times during the day, so this seems like the best thing to add to the site at the moment.

So here you go, some of my favorite feeds these day, in no special order. Enjoy!
