Two and a half months old

Lila is now two and a half months old. At her 2 months checkup she was 5.4 kg, and 61cm. Everything is going smoothly and she is even good to Alice her maman de jour and Laetitia her nanny. I sometimes feel bad about having her go to so many different places for daycare but it's not like I have a huge choice and in the long run, if I actually manage to get a teachers position, I'll be able to spend much more time with my kids!

Trip to Les Giettes

We went up to Les Giettes for 5 days at the beginning of the week. We had a beautiful stay with Orion, Melody, Thomas and Ivan, and then with Michel and Marie-Claire. Lila finally lost her umbilical cord (at 6 weeks and 3 days) while we were up so I decided to burry the stump under a tree. This might seems weird but given that the ashes of most of my paternal ancestors are up there, and that Lila was born on my Granny's birthday, I thought it was a good idea.

Lila spent the entire stay either on Vishal or me, sleeping, life is good

Nandu had his routine bath

View on the valley and Villars

Nandu is potty trained now, soon he'll be able to enjoy the view

Another nap.

Random pictures and one month stat.

So Lila is now nearly 6 weeks and she had her first pediatrician appointment yesterday. She is now 4.75kg, 59 cm and her head is 39cm in circumference. All her reflexes are good and she holds her head very well for her age. She is growing fast, not sleeping through the night (it's been 2 years and about 6 months since I slept through the night, but who is counting...), she started to smile about 2 weeks ago, and she is making cute sounds that resemble something like ahhheu. Fascinating, no? She got her first bottle of my milk to be ready for me going back to school and she did ok so far. Nandu got his first mommy-made haircut, and he didn't have to wear a hat to hide it, so I guess I did ok ;)

OK, here are the pics, enjoy.

Nandu loves umbrella...

... and the rain was very welcome after a very hot month of July

Lila's first bottle of my milk

And Nandu wanted to feed her as well

She is getting cuter every day

First 2 weeks of Lila

At the hospital, on July 6th, one day old.

Lila one week birthday, where she was born... literally!

Wondering if Lila will also stick her tongue out when she focuses.

Both kids asleep at the same time for 2 hours in a row.

Lila Louise Dora Sood

Notre fille est née en fanfare, devant notre garage à Bussigny le 5 juillet 2013, exactement 101 ans après ma Granny (Et c'est pour cela que l'on a ajouté le prénom de Dora puisque ma Granny s'appelait Theodora).
Lila était le prénom de la grand-mère de Vishal donc c'est une histoire de grand-maman qui se joue. D'ailleurs Lila devant le sentir puisqu'elle a décidé de sortir à l'ancienne.
Elle faisait 3.74kg à la naissance et 53 cm, une grande fille.

Nandu réagit très bien à l'arrivée de sa petit soeur. Il lui fait des bisous sur la tête, et trouve qu'elle est jolie (merci Henri Dès pour "ma petite soeur est jolie...".

Un jour après la naissance

à trois jours.

Kissing the baby

I guess Nandu is just to short to kiss the baby properly yet :)

Duplos and chicken

Playing with Nandu and duplos is getting more and more fun especially with a moving train that can push stuff on the tracks.

Fancy train

Just a usual face

I guess Nandu is not vegetarian :)

Trotinette and family

Just a regular Sunday with family and a small walk behind our house.

Nandu was imitating his GrandPa, with the hands in the pockets!

lundi 15 avril 2013


The good thing about living nearly in the country side is that there are chicken about 2 minutes from the house, and going to see them is a weekly activity for Nandu. This weekend I even managed to put a helmet on his head when he uses his scooter. It's probably not fully necessary yet but if he gets used to it early it's going to be easier later... or at least I hope so!

More birthday celebrations

This was on Nandu actual birthday (March 2nd) with my dad, Joanne and our neighbors.


And here are a few pictures of our trip to Brussels. More will probably come once I gather them from my cousins.

Dans la foret de Soignes 
This one is a private joke, I'll try to post an explanation soon,

In Ostende, at the north sea. A bit grey, but it didn't matter to Nandu who had fun throwing seashells in the sea.

Birthday celebrations

Nandu will turn two tomorrow but we already started celebrating with a few friends. I never post pictures of my friend's kids online so you won't see how great of a crowd it was, but with Zoé, Thomas, Nils and Antoine, Nandu had a lot of fun (after being his usual shy for 30 minutes while waking from a nap).

It started at the store, where Nandu decided on a bright pink scooter for his birthday... I did try to encourage blue to avoid problems later, but he was set on it, and who am I to judge!

Then while I was baking his birthday cake he decided he wanted to weigh all his animals. The guy loves to use the scale and see the numbers appear.

We had to light the candles about 4 times before he managed to blow on them properly.
You'll notice the scooter is now blue... This is because Nandu has great godparents that also thought a scooter was a great idea for a birthday gift. Now we have two scooters but at least I won't have problems about colors later :)

We all went for a walk, that didn't last very long because it was still extremly cold.
