Our little girl grew up a little while we were in Sweden. In stead of throwing a tantrum when she got upset or felt her parents were being unfair to her, she ran to the other room, threw herself onto a bed and just wept in silence. Those are heartbreaking, but also proud moments. She is growing up and handling her emotions very well. I go to her, sit down by her side, explain to her once again why I said what I said and then I ask for a hug. She always gives me a hug and we go on like nothing happened. She truly is a very understanding and wise little person.Awesome Estonian barbecue weather. Chefs really do need to be creative 😀 Mom gave me this book and I started reading it ages ago. I loved the first 25 pages I read and since then I just haven’t had the opportunity to read. I’m really anxious to get to it and not being able to annoys me. Friendship! Amazing mums have amazing daughters so both me and the Ladybug get to spend our time in the company of beautiful people. I get auntie J and the little one gets baby Simona! Gee, Ladybug, condescending much? This is taken on our roadtrip to Finland – we stopped at a gas station and the Ladybug decided to hang out with these lovely ladies. Those two are a wonderful example of awesome parenting – sisters who are good friends, cherish each other, let each other into their lives and treat their parents with utmost love and respect. I hope I’ll be able to raise my little girl and her future sibling(s) in the same way. And who doesn’t love matching outfits, anyway? Our kiddo and auntie A danced together (yes, in the middle of nowhere with no music on) like two crazies. If A doesn’t mind, I’ll edit the video I shot and upload it here. It really was hysterically funny! When we arrived at our destination (my step-grandparents’ house in Sastamala, Finland) the little lady was given a pair of bunny ears. Give a girl some bunny ears and what you’ll get is sincere happiness. And tons of laughs because a toddler hopping around like a bunny in bunny ears is hysterical. I’ve been sitting here trying to come up with a description to this photo and there’s nothing. Nothing that could put words that even come close to what I feel when I see that picture. Not sure if I feel like laughing or crying, it’s just immense. I love you so much, little person. So-so-so much.
