Belly: 36 weeks + 2 days

So…. here is the promised belly picture… Story goes it (the belly) will grow even bigger…!! I find that hard to believe! 😉


Yesterday we were unable to go to little Emma because of the snow. Instead, we cleaned and greased our own carrycot (kinderwagen) and prepared for when we have our own little one to carry around. For the car seat (the ‘maxi cosi’) I made a garland with little felt hedgehogs that I bought years ago in Ljubljana, Slovenia. It’s very cute, don’t you think?


A very special day

Today is a very special day, because one of my very best friends is gonna give birth…! I am very excited and a bit nervous for her and hope all will be well with the baby and the parents. We visited them Sunday, and these are the latest belly-pics. I’m the zebra!

Winter baby preps

With the snow already falling in the Netherlands (and not melting immediately, can you imagine!) there is extra reason to do some ‘upcoming winter baby’ preparations. My sister gave us this cute ‘skiing outfit’ for the baby – it’s from a Nordic brand that I love: Polarn O. Pyret.

To go with the suit, I knitted a little baby hat (for when the ice age is really coming back, you see 😉 ) and I’m very happy with the result, although it cost me a lot of time to figure out the exact pattern. Here is the pattern (in Dutch, if anyone’s interested, I’ll happily translate), it’s very easy! Mutsje baby simpel

Belly update

30 weeks, 7,5 kilos extra and a lot of attention, presents and little kicks further – this is the belly now! About 10 weeks to go untill B-day, it is really becoming exciting.


As a first post, your belly might be a bit of a weird choice, but I have been asked for a photo by those who live (too) far away to keep track of my new ‘situation’. 🙂 So here it is: The Belly.
