I’m still a little bitter about Instagram not being available for Windows Phone so I decided I’d live out the hipster-dream in the blog in stead! I still have a lot of phone-pictures I haven’t shown you so what better way than to make a whole new category for them? I’m going to call it “The poor man’s Instagram”. I’ll start with pictures from our wonderful summer (the baby was about six months old and just starting to become acquainted with ‘real food’). Here goes:
This one’s taken at ‘our beach’ in Hiiumaa (free geography lesson – you’re welcome!). The baby hung out in her cute little headscarf, playing with her toys under her very own parasol.
We didn’t get many sunny days so when we finally got to the beach and baby was in a good mood, I made sure I got the most out of the little sun we were given. Classic me, always drenched in tanning oil.
Pooch was very happy too, obviously. She got to run around freely, eat dead fish off the shore (auntie G taught her that and I never did really forgive her…), play in the waves and dig in the sand as much as she liked.
I never noticed until I started putting together this post – baby had a really nice tan (even though she was almost always fully clothed and in the shade)! Don’t you just love her little shorts and the straw hat?
I made the ladybug a six-month mini-birthday cake…
… she didn’t get to have any of the cake but she was cool about it (in her little ‘ray bans’).
Me, my baby sister S, H and a friend of H’s mom’s went to see an outdoor-theater play.
They were putting on Astrid Lindgren’s “Seacrow Island” and it was absolutely adorable!
We headed back home from our paradise island and baby had her first banana on the ferry. Mixed emotions.
Who says having a kid means you have to grow up? Nonsense, I say!
Baby Dexter’s first encounter with beetroot. Went well, as you can see!
The rest of us had beetroot too! I put ours in puff pastry and covered it with delicious goat cheese. Omnomnomnom!
And then there was a broccoli-encounter. That one was VERY successful, baby loo-oo-oooved broccoli!
We couldn’t stay away for too long so after about a week in town we decided to pack our stuff and my baby sister into my dad’s jeep and head back out to the island!
