He is walking … almost

November 22nd, 2008

Better write a new post so you know that we are still here and are doing well… 🙂

Marius is getting big and is walking when he holds on to something, he just got a walking cart or what ever you call it and can walk with that… He can stand by him self for a while too. He got his 2 front teeths in his upper jaw and he can get from standing to sitting with out falling. He has really started to get his own opinion… so annoying… 😀 if he has something he can not play with the can start to cry if we take it from him and if we need to changes his diaper he can screams when we put him for 5 sek until he finds out that it does not help to scream…
But he is still a happy boy most of the time, he has started to eat more. For a a couble of weeks he did not eat much and took forever to eat, but we talked to our homenurce and she said not to try so hard and relax and he will eat until he is full and that has helped but I also cut away some nursing meals so I only nurse him 2 a day now…

Next week we are going to a summercabitnet on the westcoast with mikkels parents, grandmother, sister and husbands/boyfrinds and nephew. It is a luxury cabitnet with pool, spa and sauna… So that is going to be so nice now that it is getting so cold out side. And it is nice for mikkel to have the time off just before Marius starts daycare on dec 1st… 🙁 I can not belive that he is starting daycare, I am worried to see how he will take it to be away from home but and me… But we will start up slow so I will stay with him there a few hours that first day and the next day he will try to be there by him self maybe for his nap and I still don’t have a job so I will proberly not start until jan 1… so we can take it really slow… But Mikkels christmas vacation starts on december 19th until jan 5th… So Marius will not go to daycare during that time…

I uploaded some new pictures and 2 videos a few days ago…

He is crawling like crazy…

October 14th, 2008

p1070979.jpgIt has been a while since I have written a post, but time is just flying by. Marius turned 8 months yesterday, he can do so many things now. He is crawling like crasy, he can get from crawling to sitting and back to crawling, he can stand on his knees and walk farward, and is trying to get to stand on his feet but has not done it yet. He can waive, clap his has and so much more, so he is so fun right now. He is still a very happy boy and smilies and laughs a lot, he almost never crys unless he is tired or hungry…. 🙂 He is crawling every where now so now he need to learn the word “No”… 🙂

This weekend we when to visit Mikkel Sister Lisette on Sealand, and we had such a good time. We had been looking forward to getting away for a few days,  just to get a way from the every day rutine. We arrived at her place on thursday and friday we when to Tivoli where they had a Halloween display it was nice to see, but it can still not compeet with the one that we saw in RI on the Maccy stadium… On Saturday we when to Sweden to do some shopping this was Marius first to sail and his first to another contry. Sunday we drow back home, it was a trip on app 3 hours but Marius did okay most of the time and got a long nap, but it was a long time for him to sit still…

We thought that Mikkel was going to RI bacuse of work and then Marius and me was talking about going with him but he is not going anyway… So we will not come to RI anyway so you will have to do with picture and videos of Marius…. 😀

1 year since…

Me and Marius are home alone…

September 9th, 2008

p1070621-1.jpgMe and Marius are home alone all week, or almost… Mikkel left for Brussels on sunday a couse in managment and is coming home late friday evening. We are doing good on our own…. 🙂 but we still miss Mikkel alot.. Sunday after Mikkel I left went to my parents, Monday I went shopping with my mom and when to their house afterwards and today me and marius when swimming which we do every tueday and this afternoon my cusine and boyfriend stopped by so the days are passing qucikly…

Marius is learning a lot of things right now. He sits by him self, can klap, bang toys together, mover accros the floor and is up on all fours and move back and forth but he can not crawl yet but we think he will soon. He eats well and is still a happy boy and smiles most of the time. He almost never crys and he sleeps well doing the day and at night. The last 5 days he has not been eatning doing the night, only needed the pacifier a few time. He sleeps from 7.30ppm until app 6.30-7am. So he is just a good boy… 

Other than not a lot of things are going on… I have joined a gym and is going there a few times a week, and I am really happy about that. I had a need to get out of the house and do something for my self. Marius and me also started a something called babybongo… this is song, movement for babys… he really loves music and sits and the floor hopping to the music… it looks so cute… 😀

Marius weight is now 7,73kg (17,04lb) and 72cm (28,34Inch) so he his going weight okay, he eats well and can now eat his meal in app 10min-20min depending on how hungry he is… He still eats 3 solid meals and I am still nursing him the rest of the day.

As you can here most of my time and thoughts is spend on Marius… My maternity leave ends on december 31 and marius is starding daycare on december 8th so he can start op slowly a few hours a day… I am starting to look a the job adds but just to see what is out there, has not applyed for anything yet. But will if I find something interresting…. 😀

I uploaded new pictures under 6 months and new videos… So have a look…

Marius is 6 months today….

August 13th, 2008

p1070138.jpgMarius turns 6 months today… I can not believe he is already that old… He is doing great and his a happy boy smiles a lot and almost never crys…. He is moving around on the floor a lot around in a circle, backwards and sometimes forward, he is not crawling just getting around somehow… he is getting his first tooth in his lower jaw but does not seem affected by it so that is good…  He is getting 3 meals a day and is doing well eating eventhough it takes a long time to eat, app 30min for one portion but it is getting better every day. He get massed potatos and carrots for dinner and really likes it, for the other two meals he get porridge made from made from riseflour or cornflour. 

His weight is 7,4kg (16,3lb) and is 68cm (2,23ft) so is is doing good, he is a bit under average and he did not use to be, but as long as he is happy and developing well, it is okay… but is still get worried sometime… but I guess that goes with being a mom… 🙂 Both me and Mikkel think it has changes our life a lot to get him, but we sure love it, there are so much joy to be with him and see him do all his firsts, but also a lot of work… and you have to get use too that you don’t have a lot of time for just the 2 of us, but it is getting a lot better now that he is eating solid food and gets to bed around 7.30pm… We have been out a few time for a couble of hours by our self and 2 weekends ago my mom babysat him for app 12 hours when we when to a wedding. It was so nice just to go out the 2 of us. Marius was happy being with my mom and dad and was eating well and felt a sleep with out any problems. By big worrie was that he would get to hungry and upset and did not want to eat the solid food, but he did good and also took the bottle before he had to sleep so I was happpy and we had a great time at the wedding… 😀 So we better do it again soon… 🙂

Mikkels 3 weeks vacation ended this week, so he is back at work. We had a great time and app 2 weeks out of the 3 the weather was really nice app 25-30d (77-86F) so that was so nice. The first week we when to my uncles summercabinet on the westcoast for a few day and the week after we went to the norths of Jutland to Mikkels Parents summercabinet for 5 days, it was close to my big brother so we spend some time with him and his girlfriend and spend some time at the beach… and went svimming, the water was nice app 23C (73F)… We had Marius under a big umbrella, and only went for app 1,5 hours at a time. But we had him feel the water with his feet, he liked that… :

I just uploaded a lot of photos of marius they are under the folders Marius 5 months and Marius 6 months…

Already 5 months…

July 16th, 2008

p1060543.jpgCan not belive that Marius is already 5 months… And have started to eat solid food… he started on saturday, the day before he turned 5 months. We went to the doctor on friday so Marius could get his 2nd vaccine and get a health check… Every thing was looked good except that the doctor said that he has move down on the weight scale and is now below average, he was not under weight but the thought it would be good to start on the solid food, but I was also planing on starting when he turned 5 months. His weight is now 7090g (15.63lb)  and 68cm (26,77inch).

We started giving Marius mush (not sure if you call it that) made from Risflour, and he likes that, he is already eating 1/4 of a potion and he has done that since the 2nd day he got it, so that is pretty good I think. We taped the his first meal and will put it under videos soon.

He is learning so muce just in the last two weeks, he has learned to roll from his back to his stomach but not the other way… So when he get tired we turn him to his back but as soon as put him there he turnes to his stomace again and get upset because he get tired… A fun game… 🙂 He has started to pull his legs up under his butt and is kicking a lot when he lays there so can rotate when he is on his stomach. He can grap his feet with his fingers and put them in his mouth. He can take a toy from on hand to the other. Grab toys when they with one hand when they are on the side of him. He sits well, but does not have the balance yet. All this he has learned with in a few weeks. It is so fun to see him learn new stuff, when he first learn it he does it over and over again. Oh and his hair is turning blond… or atleast ligher than it use to be… So maybe he will get my hair color after all…  

Mikkel is vacation is commin up next week and the following 2 weeks, I am looking so much forward to that. This weekend we are going to my uncles Summercabinet on the Westcoast, this is the first overnight stay that Marius is going to have… But we will bring his Big Stroller that he sleeps in doing the day, so he has a familier place to sleep at night. My mom, dad, 2 uncles, 2 cusines are also going to be in the summercabinet so that is going to be nice.

The weekend after we are going to Mikkels Parents sommercabinet in Northern Jutland, and this is close to where my brother lives so we are going to spend some time with them. I am not sure yet if some of Mikkels family are going to be in the summer cabinet yet.

The weather here has not been nice the last couble of weeks, we had a few days with nice summerweather but it is mostly cloudy and around 15C (60F) most days and we get some heavy rainshowers… So we hope the weather will be better when Mikkels vacation starts.

Finally a new post…

June 20th, 2008

p1060117.jpgI finally have time to write a new post, I have been so busy lately and Marius does not sleep as much as he use to so, when he sleeps I spend my time cleaning, cooking or taking a shower… Once a week I have been to an arobic class for new moms and also app once a week I meet up with other moms that live in the area that we live in, they are around the same age as me and the babys are also around the same age, so it is nice to met up and talk about the baby and share experinces with each other.

But we are doing fine, Marius is getting big we had a visit from the home nurse on tuesday and he is 6700g (14,77lb) and 66cm (25,98inch) so his is growing like he should. He is not above average anymore but this is okay she said. I am still nursing him 100% and will continue for a while longer, here in DK they recommend that you keep nursing until he baby is 6 months that should give them a smaller risk of getting allergies… He is starting to want to sit up and it looks so cute and he is getting really good at reaching for his toys and pacifier… I uploaded a small video where he tries to chatch his pacifier with is mouth it looks so funny, we notised that he tried it and had to video tape it… 😀 There are several other videos and a lot of new pictures aswell. I can not belive that it has been so long since I uploded pictures…

Marius had to get his shot when he was 3 months… he had to get one in each leg, the first one he did really cry just mad a sound, but when he got the 2nd one he screamed… I also got tears in my eyes I hate when he crys with tears and it kind was our fould that he cried… He was find until like 9pm when mikkels when to the movies with a friend… Marius was a bit upset before he left but fell asleep just before they left, (I told mikkel if marius was really upset he could not go to the movies…) but I thought now that he is asleep it would be okay, but he woke up 5 min after they left and just screamed/cried like crazy… I could not get him to stop, I think that is the one a only time I could not get him to stop… he cried like that for 25min solid…. I tried everything… At the end I thought I will try to put him in his stroller and walk with him, I was not even out of our driveway before he stopped crying… 😀 it took 15 min before he fell asleep and when I got home I did not dar to take him out of the stroller and just rolled it in to the house and let hime sleep in that. He then sleep pretty well the rest of the night only woke up as he usually does but cried really loud when he woke up but as soon as he got his pacifier he fell back asleep and the next day he seamed fine… He need his next shot when his is 5months…

Other than that I don’t think anything exciting has been going on here, we had several week where the weather was really nice, app. 25-30C (77-86F) but now it is only app 15C (60F) and windy and a lot of dark clouds… and it does not look like it will get better in the near futures…. 🙁

Marius’ Christening…

May 21st, 2008

p1050848.jpgIt has been a while since I wrote a post, but we have been busy with Marius christening and Mikkels birthsday.

As you know we had Marius christning last sunday, so we have been busy cleaning and getting the house and garden ready for all the guests, we had the party here in our house, and the weather was just perfect we could sit in the garden and it was app 77degrees, really good for the months of May here in DK… He was so good doing the cermoni in the church he was sleeping most of the time and didn’t even wake up when the minister put water on his head… 😀 the last couple of weeks he has started to cry if someone who he didn’t know was sitting with him or even looking at him… so we were a bit worried how he would handle all the people at the party but he was so good and only started to cry once or twice and he was held by a lot of different people…. So we were so happy… We made the starter but the rest of the food we got from a catering company, but it was still a lot of work… But we had a really nice day. I have uploaded some pictures but I will upload more soon.

Mikkels birthsday was monday he turned 27…. so we had his parents over for coffie, and on Saturday most of Mikkels family will come here for dinner to celebrate me and mikkels birthsday. My is at the end of June. We will proberly make some food on the grill and then I will make a cheese cake… 😀

The weather here has not been so nice since the christening it is app. 15C (60F) and a lot of clouds, but it sould get a bit warmer at the end of the week, hope it is good Saturday so we can sit outside.

Marius is so cute, he is getting really god at grabbing a toy with boths hands and he smiles and “talks” (make sounds) a lot. He can hold his head so well and lay on his stomage for several minuts with out getting tired and therefore angry… 🙂

I went to a birthsday at one of our neighbors on Saturday, she had a woman only dinner, so Mikkel had to take care of Marius alone for an evening, but I was only next door so I could easily come home. I feed hime before I left at 6pm and then mikkel should give him a bottle at around 8pm when he was hungry, it was hard to get him to take the bottle and he did not eat much, and was grying a bit. Around 10pm I call home and mikkel said that Marius just got a bit more to eat and had just fallen a sleep, but has been crying quite a bit. So I said to call me when he woke up, after 10min Mikkel called me, Marius was awake and crying. So I went home and Marius was awake but quiet when I got home, so he got some food.  He was so tired but, had not been sleeping since I left but it still took a while before he fell asleep, I sang to him and he just stared and smilled at me with his eyes almost closed….  so sweet, he missed his mother… 😀 Mikkel said it was harder then he thought to take care of him, but I think it is beacuse it was only the first time Marius had to get a whole meal from the bottle and it took a long time for him to eat, and it was the first time I was away from hime for so long. I have been away from him but I has only been for max 2 hours and he has been sleeping most of the time when I have been gone.
