I came across this kids magazine. It´s a magazine about children's fashion, lifestyle and culture. It comes out twice a year, before each fashion season, apparently they work with some of the best photographers in the world. 250 pages of fun. I want!!
My dad just left Oslo. We had a nice and relaxing weekend together. Lykke has been on her best behaviour! We went out for lunch, watched a movie, had pizza and red wine and just relaxed. Come visit us soon again (next time you can try to change her nappy;)
It´s spring (well, soon it is anyway)!! Very nice to get out just the three of us;) On saturday we went shopping, had lunch in the harbour and just enjoyed the sun. This might sound like a regular saturday but it´s not any more...
Hi, Lykke is now 3 weeks and 5 days old and doing very well. She is gradually putting on weight and she is starting to emerge from her own little world and into ours. Helena has now been "Home Alone" for a week now and realising that this really is a full-time job!. We have now experienced the "Help....I have to eat constantly" and "I don´t know what it is either but I am going to scream for 3 hours non-stop"....fun ;-)
Bit of a rough night last night but it is all worth it when we get to wake up to this face in the morning!.
Hi everyone, after a long process (8 months, 3 weeks) we have finally chosen a name for our little girl. It was actually our first name and has been on our shortlist all the way.
So meet our Daughter: Lykke Alexandra Cartmell!.
Lykke is a very Scandinavian name and it is feminine but strong. It is a little unusual as a first name and means "happiness" in Norwegian. The pronunciation is a bit tricky in English (the Y sound is pronounced differently in the Scandinavian languages) but here is the phonetic version: Lee-ka (the 'ee' is pronounced softly).
Her middle name comes from Lee's family and is inspired by Lee's Great Great Grandfather, Alexander Sandell (sounds very Swedish). Alexander was a sailor on the old Square Rigged sailing ships and sailed all over the world as a merchant seaman.
Thanks for all your input but when we finally got to know her there was only one choice :-)
PS: We only know of one other Lykke (a Swedish singer), check out her video below.
Yes, it starts early! Got these super cute bodys from my good friend Aimee (Stella McCartney for BabyGap). She looks very stylish in her Sunday-body. Thank you very much Aimee! Just wish our girl could fit in to these lovely items as well;)
