Mini Bookworm


10 days ago, our baby girl finally arrived. It was a long birth (26 hours), I lost too much blood and had to be hospitalized for a brief period afterwards, but she’s been in perfect health from the very beginning.

    Stort tillykke til hele den lille familie, og mΓ₯ I lΓ¦re hinanden at kende hurtigt sΓ₯ I kan falde til i hinandens rytmer.
    Men husk at nyde den fΓΈrste tid, jeg har hΓΈrt den forsvinder hurtigt. πŸ™‚

    1. Tak, Michelle! So far har den fΓΈrste tid bestΓ₯et af at vΓ¦re totalt forvirret og overvΓ¦ldet over det nye lille liv πŸ˜€

  4. NΓ₯hhh – hvor er hun kΓ¦r ☺ Tillykke med den lille mini bogorm. I skal nok blive gode forΓ¦ldre for hende – men al begyndelse er svΓ¦r. HΓ₯ber du er kommet ovenpΓ₯ igen – du mΓ₯ vΓ¦re ekstra trΓ¦t ovenpΓ₯ sΓ₯dan en fΓΈdsel. De bedste ΓΈnsker til jer alle ☺

    1. Mange tak Lene! Og ja, minder mig selv konstant om, at al begyndelse er svΓ¦r … godt, at man har en sundhedsplejerske, der kommer forbi i ny og nΓ¦ og fortΓ¦ller en, at man gΓΈr det rigtige i det store billede – kan godt vΓ¦re svΓ¦rt at huske nΓ₯r man stΓ₯r med en utrΓΈstelig baby πŸ˜‰
