Our little sweetheart turned 5 months today. We gave her a bath toy (a Fisher-Price see-through ball with water, a rubber duck and some colorful beads in it) as a present and she loooves it. It’s quite heavy and large but she still very ambitiously tries to grip it and bring it to her mouth. It’s great to see a tiny little person enjoy a toy as much as she likes her birthday present 🙂
What are yours? We’re spending Midsummer at H’s parents’ summer cottage in Hiiumaa this year (like we did last) with H’s mom, two of her friends and my baby sis S. H and S are leaving Thursday morning and me and baby ladybug are going to join them on Friday because the little bug still has three more massage appointments this week. Can’t wait!

It was definitely not as easy to go thrift shopping (which requires time and patience, neither of which a kid has) while carrying a baby, but all in all I think I did pretty great. We had a really lovely day, but now that I’m back home, having made dinner and fed the baby I’m exhaaaaausted. Going to take the little bug in my arms and take a well deserved nap.
My good old G is back after two long years in Australia and lives right across the street so we spent all day with her yesterday. Surprisingly, it didn’t feel like she had been gone at all, only a lot has changed since we last saw each other (we didn’t have a care in the world and spent most of our nights getting drunk as hell). Annnnyway, you cannot imagine how great it is to have a neighbor like her.
Today we’re going second hand shopping across town with lovely I and her little boy, who is only a month older than our little lady. Yes, we’ve already been “setting them up” and yes, we know it’s wrong, but we can’t help it, it’s so much fun!
So, fingers crossed, I hope we find a lot of cool things for both us and the little ones. And of course I’ll show it all off once we’re done!
Have a nice day!
I promise, this is the last post I’ll write on those damn clouds, but admit it – they look brilliant! Started by taping the clouds’ locations on the wall (so that the bottom edge would be straight and even), drawing the contours on the wall with a pencil and then took a brush and painted them white. Come on, tell me I did great 😉
First we needed to tear off the old wallpaper (which revealed some historical “murals” from when my mother was a teenager, VERY funny stuff, I assure you) and then the builder came and spackled, sanded and finally painted the walls. The blackboard wall is painted with a special paint from Tikkurila (it’s called “koulutaulumaali“, means “schoolboard paint”). I spent half day cleaning out the immense amount of dust and trash that came from the renovation. Then H put up the lamp and I hung up the curtains.
It’s the perfect room for a little girl, isn’t it? Once I have a spare minute or two I’ll paint some clouds on the walls and put up some shelves for her toys and books. Make sure you comment and let me know what you think!

I can’t help it – pretty things make me a little extra happy. H is about to come home with our new car, a bunch of stuff we ordered from H&M (a pretty big wardrobe renewal for H, a few accessories and clothing items for me, some clothes and a hat for the little one, plus some towels, cushion covers etc for our home) is arriving on Wednesday, my favorite handbag that I’m having repaired is going to be ready for use again tomorrow, the little one’s room is going to be done by the end of the week… Can you blame me for being really excited today?
