I ordered some 2 lovely vintage dresses for Rosa and my favorite sunglasses a couple of months ago. My sweet friend just brought back from the US. Love getting goodies like this on a rainy and grey day

how sweet is this and can I have it in my size?

What's not to love?

My sweet parents came to visit last weekend and they got me/Rosa this beautiful old silver cross pram. I have been wanting one of these for years - but they can be hard to find and pretty expensive. Crazy enough my mom found this one in my little hometown in Jylland for a 1000 kr/160$ - and it is in almost perfect condition. So today I went for my first tiny walk (my body still hurts) and Rosa slept the entire time. And I got into one of my dresses today....one down a lot to go.

Rosa Grace

Finally she is here and it was about time! I don't want tell my whole birth story - because there is not a lot of positive things to say about it (and I don't want to scare anybody away) So to cut it short, I got induced on monday and had a few contractions all through monday. It wasn't till tuesday the real contractions started....but they came and were constant until she was born wednesday at 9.40. I have never been so exhausted - I haven't slept for 2 days and haven't had that much to eat.I still hurt all over my body and have had a day with crying because of the breastfeeding is not working. It is one thing to be pregnant and then to give birth - but there is also all the stuff after (that I had forgotten all about). But everything is slowly starting to get better and I am sure by this time next week I will be my old self again .....well almost.

Meet Rosa Grace

Karl is so cute. He wants to kiss her all the time and if she makes a sounds - he will run to see if she is okay. So far so good - no jealousy yet
 (but I am sure it will come)

first time outside - we had a bbq in the backyard. I had my first Moonshine cocktail in 9 months and damn it was sooo good!
