Okay, autumn is really here now. I cant believe how fast this summer passed. Feels like it almost never even started. But I'm not sad about that. I have actually been looking forward to the autumn and winter. Cant wait for Codin to get to experience a winter full of snow (hopefully!). Now that he can walk on his own it's easier for us to be out and play all together.

Just a week ago it was still quite warm.

My boys!

What is your biggest fear as a mother?

My biggest fear is that something will happen to my children when I am not with them, or that I won't be able to save them if something happens.

We have two very adventurous little boys and I just can't shake of the worrying. Guess that's part of being a mother.

What is something that you miss from the time before you had kids?

I think most mothers would give you the same answer: sleeeep. Oh how I miss sleeping in in the morning. I used to love staying up really late at night but if I do that now I regret it in the morning.

What is the best thing about being a mother?

All the love that you get. There is nothing better than a hug or a kiss from your children or seeing them happy. Cuinn has started telling me "mum, I like you" in Swedish and it melts my heart every time. He also tells me things like I'm pretty and funny and that he loves me every day. Codin doesn't say much more than mamma and namnam yet, but his hugs and kisses are priceless. Mwaaaa, he says and tries to eat your whole mouth haha. They might be small but their hearts are bigger than most people's.

I've been feeling a little bit off this week.. The lack of sleep makes me feel tired from the moment I wake up till the moment I go to bed.

We are also having a bit of a hard time at home. Cuinn is veeery moody, just like me and I don't know how to make things better for him. It breaks my heart. I guess I just need to be patient and understanding and things will get better with time. My big little boy. 🌸

Woke up to a cloudy sky today... Should probably catch up with some cleaning at home. It is soo much fun to be a mother of two little boys... Before I have even had time to tidy everything up, they have started making a mess again. My little tornadoes πŸŒͺ

Yesterday was an eventful day. First my mum and I took the boys to the city, where they had a very exciting event for a two year old 😁

After the event we went home so Codin could nap. A few hours later my cousin, who now lives in Stockholm, came to visit us. We ended up going to a beautiful beach here in Aland islands, called Degersand, which I had never been to before. My mum was brave enough to take a swim even though the water was freezing! Brrr, I guess the autumn is here now. 🍁

Yesterday, on our fifth anniversary, Clive and I took our families and friends by surprise by announcing that we had gotten married πŸ˜„

We chose to have a small personal wedding ceremony. We only had our boys with us and afterwards we went to eat at a cosy place, just the four of us. It was simple but perfect. Just like I had imagined it. All I need to be happy is my boys πŸ’•

Finally I can call myself Mrs Kassis β˜ΊπŸ’πŸ‘°πŸŒΈ

Five years ago tonight I met this handsome guy for the very first time. Our paths only met for a brief moment that night and I had no idea that he would soon become such an important person in my life.

Today I couldn't imagine my life without him. Even though we drive each other crazy from time to time, he is also the only person in this world keeping me sane πŸ’™

This photo was taken on a dinner with two of our close friends the summer before Cuinn was born.. πŸ’˜

Where were you and what were you doing when you went into labor?
With Cuinn I was already at the hospital in Malta (where we lived at the time) when the doctors decided to break my water. It was painful and the whole experience was a nightmare to be honest. Not because of the hospital staff, but because I wasn't well. Luckily it didn't take many hours until the midwife put my beautiful son on my chest. Sadly I was too exhausted to even hold him though. This day still haunts me in my dreams...
With Codin I was at home, in Aland islands. I woke up from having a small contraction early in the morning. I got up to pee and as soon as I stepped into the bathroom my water broke. We headed to the hospital almost right away since the contractions started getting more and more intense. A few hours later I was holding my second baby boy. Giving birth to him was a dream compared to giving birth to Cuinn and I am happy I got to experience it one more time, in better circumstances.

What was your first thought when you saw your baby?
I don't remember my exact thoughts, but I remember feeling relieved and exhausted at the same time both times. I am guessing most women do ☺ but to finally get to see who had been growing inside of me for all those months was indescribable. It was definitely love at first sight.

Who did you choose to have by your side when you gave birth?
Clive, of course. He is their father and my partner, so who else would I have wanted to share it with? Both times he spent as much time as he could with us at the hospital until we got to go home. Having him there was priceless. πŸ’«

Had time to bake some bread today, so I found an easy recipe and the bread turned out sooo good. I love trying out new recipes! This one will definitely be added to my favourites. The whole family loved it 😊

Hey guys!

Today I woke up happy. Me and the boys had breakfast at my mum's then we went out to play for a couple of hours. Met a friend and her daughter, who is about a month younger than Codin. I love just watching them while they interact with each other 😊

I am so excited about the future right now. We don't have much figured out yet haha, but I am really looking forward to see where life will take us. One of the big questions at the moment is: Will we stay in Aland islands or move back to Malta? Right now we are staying, at least for a year or two. But both me and Clive are missing Malta. We have many dreams, but right now family life is taking most of our time πŸ’• No need to stress!

Hope you are all having a good day ☺

You don't know if you like it unless you taste it, right? πŸ™ˆ
