How is it that this human being one day will grow up to be a man?
I am holding my son in my own arms. Looking at him. Feeling so blessed. Who is he? What life will he have? What choices will he make? Will he go trough some of the same trials I have?

It's raining here in Norway. I love the rain, but I also love warm summer weather with it's big blue sky and the sun is smiling at ya.

Enok is growing and his looking and feeling heavier by the days that goes by. Wow! What a life we have. I love my husband, and that he's an excellent diaper changer !

Love

I'm so sad! What I wrote yesterday got deleted so I just finished and published the text I wrote on Monday. Guess that's part of life.

So here's an update on what happened yesterday. Mattias went shopping at a supermarket and then he met one of our friends that were going to visit us later in the day - so he said he could give Mattias a ride home and visit us earlier instead. The awesome thing with this guy is that his name is also Enoch, but we use "k" instead of "ch". And he had brought gifts to Enok - a giraffe (that I have been wanting to buy since I was pregnant) and a gift card with a large sum of money(!!!). Because his family is from Kongo and they have a tradition that if some one in their family or that they know very well has his/hers name called after them they are to bring presents and be kind of an uncle/aunt.
We didn't know that, but we thought it is such a great tradition. And I think it bring people closer together and that we take care of each other as a community. It is so fun to learn more about different cultures and lives.

Yesterday (Sunday) was a great day, but heactick one.
Our one month old son had his name giving and blessing. The church was filled up and the spirit was so great. We truly felt love and support from both family and friends that came all the way from Oslo and Stockholm to be a part of this day.

I'm sitting here thinking about yesterdays event while little boy is sleeping (so nice). My husband and I had decided not to tell anyone, not even family, the name we have given him. It felt really good to keep this to ourselfs and let it sink in for a couple of weeks.

His name came to us the same day he poped out, May 11th. "Who do we know that has this name?" Out of nowhere I asked Matthias, and it's been stuck since then. His name is Enok Vilhelm Wyssenbach Bertilson.

So, today will be my first blog most! What will I write about? Well, my day!

Today, I started out with a bowl of ice cream - actually Tofu ice cream with peanut butter and some oats because I'm not having any milk while nursing. But what a breakfast or what? Actually, my day started way earlier then that. It started with nursing my 5 week old boy, changing diapers and making him happy. But while I was sitting in our living room feeding him I thought - My husband, Mattias and I have been living here in Örebro 1 year and 7 months and I haven't really recorded our time living here.

Sure I've written in my journal from time to time, but not a lot. And I used to write pages on pages everyday because it was, it is really important to me to have my thoughts and big even small events written down.
Especially when you are living with a brain like mine that is working overtime and can't seem to take a break from thinking.

But yes, I was thinking about our time living here, and so many great new things have happened and I want to have them with us. Always. So I'm starting now! I'm going to blog everyday. Writing about our day, even if it means just two lines. I'm going to do it! I might even write about earlier experiences and happenings, but then I'll have them written down some where.

Follow me starting this journey of writing down our history!
