Life, Noah

Good evening readers. I have a subject that I want to discuss with other mums and dads, so I'm making a blog post out of it. I use to be a bit of a risk taker. I had no fear in me, and not much scared me. If I felt threatened in a situation, I believed there was always a way to change it. I can now admit that some of the 'risks' I used to take were a bit careless and probably should have been thought through more, however, that was just how I was as a person. Carefree and a risk taker. More than not do I believe that is a positive quality. Becoming a mother has changed me in that way however. For each passing day my love for my son grows and the fear of the world grows with it. I can honestly say that it is probably one of the very few things I dislike about parenthood. Is it just me? or can other mothers relate to me? Is it all parents? I feel suspicious of every person who walks past me, I get paranoid that I'll get stuck in an attack somewhere that I can't get out of. I think every day, what if something happens to me and my son won't remember me or know who I am growing up. And then I think even worse thoughts... what if something happens to him? Agh, I can't even stomach that thought. It is awful I know. I fear to become one of those women who are too afraid to trust in people and too scared to live, I know women like that, I don't want to be that. But I can't help how frightened I've become. A couple months back a story got out through social media about a young woman who was walking down a staircase at a train station in Berlin when out of nowhere, a man just kicks her in the back so she falls down badly and breaks her arm. As awful as that situation was, I keep thinking 'what if she had a baby in her arms?'... 'what if that would've been me?' How do I stop these thoughts? It is new to me, feeling this way, so I don't know to handle it. Is it just a part of being a new mother? Will it go away? I really hope so, because I need to show my son how to live life to the fullest and I won't be able to do that if I'm too afraid to myself...

Recipes

Are you guys ready for the first recipe of the year? Well, take out your pots and pans because here it comes!

  • Wash and peel a large amount of potatoes
  • Grate them, and grate a preferable hard cheese
  • Crush 1 garlic clove into soft butter and mix it together, let half the butter melt into a pan on medium heat
  • Place half the potatoes into the pan and push them down into a thin layer so the whole pan is covered and place half the amount of cheese on top; let cook on low heat. Turn after about 10 minutes
  • In another frying pan, fry 1 brown onion, 1 garlic clove, and a fist full of mushrooms with some oil and balsamico
  • Put aside when soft and brown, let cool down
  • Crumb goat cheese into small pieces and add on top of the frying potato cake. Sprinkle with salt
  • Take a package of sour cream and pour it into a small bowl
  • Spice it with chilli powder, salt and crush a large garlic clove into it. Mix it altogether
  • When all the cheese has melted on the potato pancake and it has a brownish colour, remove from stove and place on plate
  • Spread half the sour cream mix onto the cake, place half the amount of fried mushroom mix on top and more goat cheese if wanted
  • Chop small pieces of salami and prosciutto and add half the meat to the cake. Add a handful of rocket leaves on top
  • Do the exact same thing again with the rest of the ingredients to make the second layer of the cake
  • Sit down and enjoy the delicious and filling rösti cake!


Recommendation: Would also taste good with olives and pine nuts.

Hey beautiful readers and happy new year. I hope these past few days have been good for everyone. I've had a great start of the year. 2nd of January and I am already liking it. I'm in Klosters, aka the Swiss Alps and even though it is so unbelievably cold, the view around me is absolutely stunning. Breathtaking really. New Years was fun, for once. I always have bad luck on New Years but not this time... does that mean it is going to be a great year? My sister is here as well and so are my parents, so we ate dinner with them here before the celebration started. Raclette; my favourite! Very Swiss, very festive. We then took off to a couple of friends where a bunch of Swedish families were. We listened to music, talked and drank champagne... maybe a bit too much. Just before midnight, we went to a hotel to watch the fire works. It was so beautiful and Noah's face was priceless watching them. He didn't go to bed until like 1am haha but it was totally worth it. The next day I felt hungover for the first time in like a year and a half... I've really not missed it. But I kicked my hangovers ass by going hiking with my family. It was a tough walk. Noah was asleep in the pram while the rest of us struggled to get up the mountain. I had troubles coming down as well because of an old knee injury. The day ended however with delicious dinner and a cosy movie. Today my sister went skiing with my parents so I spent the whole day alone with Noah. Unfortunately I am getting restless now and am probably going to leave earlier than I had intended but I did have a great day with my son. I took him in the stroller and went for a two hour walk around town and just admired the beautiful view. We then had lunch at a bit too pricey restaurant. Some pizza-like german dish, but it was delicious. Right now I am just laying in bed, relaxing, looking up tickets to get back home.

Oh, and one awesome new thing that makes this year even more exciting. I scored a new job! Wohoo! I'll be selling beauty and health products. I will be advertising it here on my blog among other places. So stay tuned, you won't be disappointed, I promise ;)

There is this feeling in the air, it is probably the new year coming, that makes everyone think back and reflect over who they are, and who they want to be. This year I became a mother for the first time, which made me reflect a lot on the life I've lived and how I want to be for my child. I've changed a big part of myself. Actually, 'change' probably is not the right word. I'm still me but I've matured a lot of who I am to fit in the role as a parent. I must admit that I am actually so proud of myself for dealing with it as well as I have, and I am loving motherhood. With that being said, who I was before I became pregnant was all about the fun, I don't regret anything. I believe that everyone should sow their wild oats while they're still young. That's what I did. And maybe I was too young for some things but as I said, no regrets, I've learnt from my mistakes and I've had a lot of fun in my life. Before I was pregnant, I was a real party princess. I drank too much, ate too much, slept too little, and was all about the fun. Of course I enjoyed to chill and watch a movie with my friends every now and then. Because I was also very adventurous and spontaneous. I was the type of person, and still am, that would make everything an adventure no matter if I hiked up a mountain or went to buy candy at the grocery store. But I did things in the moment because I felt like it. I shaved half my head, went bungee jumping and just lived life to the fullest. Something I believe I've always been good at. It started when I lived in Kenya. That was when I really started to get a little wild and crazy. I experimented, I drank seriously like five days a week and I was so happy. The hands down best two years of my life. When I moved back to Sweden, my friends and I continued living the life and doing all crazy things we should and shouldn't be doing when we are young and I took that with me to Australia where my friend Bea and I lived the typical student life and I loved it. I didn't care about cleaning the house, or eating for an entire day. I took risks that I look back at now and can't actually believe I dared to do some of the things I did. I did stupid things, but not more than anyone else and for a lot of it, I loved it. It all ended quick when I met Laityn. I became pregnant fast, so our relationship became very serious very fast. I don't regret anything, as I said. I am so happy I've lived the "crazy party life" but I am just as happy to have that behind me as well because who I am now and what I have now, is more than I could ever ask for and I am now the mother who my son one day might relate to and most importantly, I am here for and with him every single day.

Merry Christmas boys, girls, men and women!! We are sitting here on the couch on this Christmas day using our gifts that we got last night. Sweden is one of the few countries that celebrate Christmas on the 24th rather than the 25th. But that does not mean Christmas is over for us, no. We have a few more days of celebrating to do. Yesterday was a wonderful day. Noah's first Christmas! The day started with my farmor (grandmother on my fathers side) came over for breakfast. We gave her presents and we all ate porridge and sandwiches together. I left after a while however to meet up with my best friend and Noah's godmother, Olivia. A little tradition of ours, whenever we both celebrate Christmas here, we meet at our bench in the forest in the morning to exchange presents. I got her some fancy chocolate and a teacup and she got me gloves and bathing liquid. She even got Noah some Tommy Hilfiger socks. Once I got back home, and my dad had dropped my farmor of back home, we drove to my parents best mates place where they had invited their friends over for some champagne and carol singing. It lasted for a bit more than an hour, and it was really cosy. When we got back, we got everything ready for the real celebration and just before 3 o'clock my mormor and morfar (grandparents on my mother's side) came over. We watched Kalle Anka, different Disney clips for an hour that sends every Christmas eve in Sweden at 3o'clock. We ate dinner, a beautiful Christmas dinner and it all tasted amazing. After Noah had a nap and was in a good mood, my dad dressed up as "santa". Meaning, he did not have a santa outfit so he improvised... we all laughed for a good half hour at him. After santa left, we opened the gifts under the tree which is always my favourite part of xmas. Everyone is together, everyone is happy, getting new things, giving new things. Love it! I didn't go to bed until 1am, and I am so tired today. I was suppose to go jogging with my mother this morning, but I don't feel great so I am instead sitting on the couch in my new robe watching TV. I can't wait for my mum to get back because then we will eat leftovers and play the games I was given last night.

Whatever day everyone reading celebrates this wonderful holiday on, I hope you all have a fabulous Christmas. If you don't celebrate at all, well then I hope you have a lovely day anyway. Kisses and many wishes, from me and the little one <3

Hello from a recently healthy, healthy home. Just the other day Noah had the stomach flu... at least that is what I think it was. The night before Noah ate more than he ever has and it was like there was no end to him. Even though I don't believe this had anything to do with the illness, there is a possibility that, that could've been a sign. The next day, Noah slept in to like 10.30 and was in a great mood when he woke up and was that entire morning. He ate breakfast as usual and was his happy self. My mum, Noah and I later took the bus into a mall not far from here and went grocery shopping. Along with our shopping, we bought a packet of raspberries that we fed Noah while walking around the store. He ate them happily and all was still good at this point. On the bus ride home, Noah started to get cranky and I first thought he was just getting really tired. When we got home, I tried giving him some breastmilk to put him to sleep but he did not want it, which was the first sign. Noah never says no to breastmilk! I tried water, something he also loves but rejected the bottle. He cried and cried which is unusual behaviour for my little boy. Finally it all came up, the raspberries. After I cleaned it all up and cleaned him, I cuddled him to sleep where he was out for about two hours. Then I thought it was the raspberries that were bad. When Noah woke up again, he was fine. He looked a bit flushed but he wasn't in pain anymore and he even took my breast so I thought he had gotten it all out of his system until he started screaming again, got the cold sweats and puked the milk out. For several hours after that Noah slept, cried, vomited, repeat. It was awful and it hurt my mummy heart deeply to watch him in so much pain. Just before midnight, Noah fell asleep for the night and did not wake up again until the next morning and he was feeling much better. In cases like these, it is so important to be strong for your kids and be their shield when in pain. But to avoid getting sick myself, I washed my hands probably every five minutes, changed clothes every time he vomited. And just in case the raspberries were the cause of his illness, I threw them out. You can never be too safe--- but luckily Noah is feeling much better and hopefully will all through Christmas.

Less than a week away until Christmas!! I can't express how excited I am for it. Noah's first Christmas. It is going to be magical. Last year I was so depressed that I didn't get a real Christmas and that is something I can't take back so this year, even though the family is incomplete, I am still going to go all out and make the best of it. Being back in Sweden has been a roller coaster on my emotions but Christmas does make it good, because I wouldn't have it any other way than to spend it right here this year. One thing that worried me the most coming from Australia to here was how Noah would react to the cold, but I must say that he's adjusted pretty good to it. When we left to come back here, it was almost 40 degrees at the Sunshine Coast so I would leave Noah in a nappy and a singlet most days so getting him dressed here in thick and heavy clothes every day is a struggle but other than that, I don't think I can complain... Well Noah can't. I on the other hand have never adjusted well to the cold and would chose to spend all my winters on a tropical beach if I had the money to. But as I said, it is great being here now during Christmas time catching up with friends and family... I will probably be complaining in a couple of months however haha. This week I am going to get a Christmas tree, and I'll also be getting Noah's Christmas present and I am all set for Christmas. I can't wait for him to start using his Christmas gift since I know he will have a lot of use out of it. What it is, you'll have to wait and see... patience ;)
