I would like to share our pregnancy photos that Relle took of us exactly a month ago. Relle attended photography lessons last year and as she is obviously really talented in it, she started taking photos of her family, friends and acquaintances. I believe she is ready to start a professional photographer career. Take a look and make your own judgement!
PS. Have to add that Tristan was really not in a mood to co-operate. This made Relle’s job extra difficult – but she managed well!
Although it was not the high season for visiting Vienna in February, we decided on behalf of it for several reasons: ⁃ Our vacation duration was limited, only four days. In this case the only chance would be non-stop flight from Tallinn and there are not that many destinations with that criteria ⁃ As we were flying with our 1,5 year old son, we preferred to have rather short flight than long one. From Tallinn to Vienna it took only 2 hours – the same as from Tallinn to our parent’s place by car. Obviously we were not going for a beach vacation, the temperature was pretty much the same as in Tallinn, around 2-5 degrees Celsius. The main purpose was to see much appreciated Old Town, it’s architecture, a few sightseeings and visit a museum.
It took me nearly five years to finally pull myself together and buy the ingredients for yogi tea according to original recipe by Yogi Bhajan! I just could not find whole cardemon seeds easily to buy from groceries (they sell it grounded) – finally found it at Biomarket. Now I can say that this tea is worth the time spent for preparing it!
This year me and Sandor went to celebrate our relationship anniversary in a restaurant Ö. When I booked the table, I had a hint that it would be a bit fancier place than an average – my instinct was correct. For example, there’s no á la carte menu to choose your own three course dinner, instead they offer table d’hôte menu as they let you choose between two fixed meals: a seven course or eleven course dinner. As we were celebrating, we decided on behalf of eleven courses.
After Tristan became one year old, it felt like there’s no update to add every month. Not saying that there’s nothing new every month – I rather mean that the first year (specially for a first-time mother) is more significant and the following years tend to pass by rather quickly. This time I’d write briefly about the changes that this passed year has brought.
Amsterdam is called the Venice of the North. It really has soooo many beautiful canals throughout the whole city. At some point in the history people started using canal space to build their homes there. Nowadays there are around 2,500 houseboats in Amsterdam and each one have their own address.
When my partner said that he wanted to visit Switzerland on our next trip, I was rather sceptic about it. Did not know much about the country and I thought that we wouldn’t have much to do there. But then I started doing some research and found out that this is a place really worth visiting. Yup, it was a great trip. 🤩 Continue reading “Breathtaking Switzerland and Liechtenstein”
In a bit, I’m confused: it feels like Tristan has been with us for so long that I cannot even remember the times before he was born, but on the other hand the time has just flown and our little baby is already becoming a child. Like… when did that happen?
The most important progress during the month was getting on his feet without any surface to lean on, all by himself. He also has taken a few steps, but it’s quite not walking, yet (though as I understand then some consider getting up on feet as walking?). Continue reading “Our tenth month with Tristan”
