My gorgeous blue-eyed boy!

Here's the first photo capturing our lovely lad smiling :-) Up to now, I only got photos with a faint smirk, but this is the real deal!

He now smiles, laughs and burbles away, and has got rid of his first cold. We can't believe how much we love him, how blessed and happy we feel!

The long weekends pass in a blur, but here's the latest rundown

Helen goes to postnatal yoga (very good session, it's lovely hearing all the other babies burbling, whilst being grateful that I can just concentrate on me. Less stiff than last time)
Alan's work colleague comes for lunch and admires Markus
The swisscom man comes to repair our router
I visit a nursery for Markus (more on nursery searches sometime later!)
Lots of washing done!

Helen has a lie in, then does HUGE food shop for the week, takes me most of the afternoon. Shopping is delivered, then Alan goes out to get us indian take away from across the road!
Another baby bunny finished

Buy sunday newspapers, meet Jill at Sprüngli in afternoon for a good catch up and gossip
I bake carrot cake, plus try 2 new recipes for supper
Finally get onto internet, for the first time in about a week!

The hardest thing for me at the moment is not having enough time to blog, to read my friend's posts, to upload photos. But I am so happy at the moment, that this is a small price to pay!

Lullabies and tears

Given that I am still slightly hormonal and teary occasionally, when considering my little lad, it still amazes me that I cry each time I listen to the lullabies on our "Wee baby sings" CD.

When I rock my baby and sing along to him, trying to get him to sleep, I feel most like a mother and I hear my mother singing to me. It is a lovely, bittersweet feeling. And my tears refresh me.
