Mr Big Shot

Today I put Loke on his belly on a blanket meanwhile I made myself some breakfast. And believe it or not but when I came back he was laying on his back! I tried flipping him over to see if he would do it again but with no luck. Trickster!

Chillin like brothers

Swedish Book Tip

I have finished my first book by John Ajvide Lindqvist, "Människohamn" or "Harbour" which is the English title. I really liked it and now I want to read "Låt den rätte komma in" or "Let the right one in" which was his first book and was made into a movie as well. Mamma, it's on my x-mas wishlist :)

Belly Time

The doctor said we should try to force Loke to spend some more time on his belly which he really doesn't like. He does good for a minute or two but then he starts screaming like crazy and it is difficult to not pick him up. "Hönsmamma" as you say it in Swedish!

My mommy heart is aching!

Loke got sick from the shots he got today and has a little fever. Earlier his legs seemed to be really sore from the injections and he was crying for a while. It is so heartbreaking, especially since he never really cries for a long time. But the good news is he should be fully recovered within 48 hours.

The doctor said Loke is doing great! He is growing fast and she said he is long and lean (and super cute!) He is now 25½" and weighs 14 lbs and 5 oz (64.7 cm and 6.52 kg). I found my old digital camera and will be using it until I get the new cord.

Shots and Shoes

Today Loke turns 4 months old! We are celebrating by going to the doctor to get two more shots. Poor baby! I thought I'll get him a little present afterward, we'll see what I can find. So far today I have only bought myself a present - new boots! What do you think?

Ready, Steady, Go!

A new helmet is ordered and so is the avalanche gear. Saturday is the 2010/11 season premier of back country skiing! Exciting!

Loke in Action

Since I can't give you any pictures I tried recording a video with the web cam. Quality sucks but oh well. Can you see what a wonderful weather we've got today?

Hi everybody! So Oden has arrived but the first thing he did when I took my eyes off him for 10 seconds, was eating the cord for our camera so unfortunately no pictures for a while. I am going to try to write something everyday instead to keep you updated. I have ordered a new cable but it will arrive from Hong Kong and it could take up to a month to get here!

Oden is so cute! I had forgotten how much work it is with a puppy and that combined with having a baby is a little overwhelming but also a lot of fun! It is fine during the weekends when Max is home with us but I fear what's going to happen during the week. It's good Thanksgiving break is coming up soon and after that x-mas break.

We have gotten a bunch of snow and poor Oden is from California and is very hesitant to this cold weather. Time to shuffle!

Gratis är gott!

We found this highchair outside the second hand store this morning. "Free - please take" After a little bit of cleaning it looks almost like new. One less thing to buy - perfect!

Swedish sailor heading to America

Friday we went down to Denver to the Swedish Consulate. Loke now has dual citizenship and Friday we are planning on applying for an American passport so that we are all set for summer. I thought today's outfit was suitable, American colors - Swedish design.

New addition

This cutie is going to move in with us next week! We are so excited! He was born the day before Loke and we are going to name him Oden. Loke & Oden :D
