My Beautiful Family

So much for best intentions! Got back on Saturday night and I have yet to update you all on my trip. Here are a few more photos from our stop at Vitemölle beach on Österlen, just 10 minutes from our house. 

Had made a quick visit to Kivik's County Fair earlier in the day—for old times sake—but it was chaos and all just junk. When I was a kid, going to the county fair was a summer highlight, but I think somethings are better off not revisited =)

I promise, there is more to come!

Sweet Reunion

Time is flying by and I can't believe we have been here a week already. We have been stopping by tons of places...and managed to even squeeze in a quick trip over to Bornholm in Denmark this week.

Going to try to get some more pictures up tomorrow, but right now its time for bed! As a sneak peek from the week that passed, here are a couple of quick shots from our sweet reunion with my brother, Teresa and Ella & Jack.

Be Water, my Friend

I know there's been some controversy around this Johnny Walker Blue commercial featuring a CGI animated Bruce Lee, but I think it's absolutely amazing. Trust me. Totally worth watching.

Wild Child

Already making herself comfortable...bossing the grandparents around, greeting the neighbors, playing soccer, making friends with the local bugs.

Home Sweet Home

Finally here after an amazingly quick trip. Cami was amazing on the plan, but I didn't manage to get a single minute of sleep. Spend the day just unpacking, relaxing and eating, but tomorrow we should be all set to go.

But, of course, I have to remember to first deal with that pesky passport thingy...

The Countdown has Begun

It’s been 7 weeks of absolute mayhem—we had quite a scare during the 20 week sonogram for our little baby boy, combined with managing seven accounts at work, houseguests, ninety degree heat, a lost passport and a rambunctious 3 year old. It’s been like a non-stop cascade of events lately! Luckily we only have three more days until we jet off to Sweden for a two-week R&R visit. Mom’s cooking, my beloved Hallamölla, friends and family, and plenty of new adventures are awaiting us. We have already slotted in a two day getaway in Gothenburg and a cycling adventure to Bornholm—I hope I’ll manage it all at 27 weeks pregnant!

And after weeks and weeks of worrying, everything seems to be fine with our baby. At the sonogram back in June, a choroid plexus cyst was discovered in the brain, and a two-vessel umbilical cord vs. the usual three. We have been so anxious, but after a couple of extensive scans at Winthrop, everything else seems normal. The cyst will disappear in the next few weeks and with regular growth sonograms, we should be ok. We will still be under close observation for heart, kidney and bladder problems, and of course early delivery and low birth weight, but I feel pretty positive that everything will work out just fine!

Spending the next couple of days pulling together the last stuff. Packing for three is exhausting. I know I will forget a million things! The house is filled with stacks and stacks of clothes and open suitcases, presents, shoes, gear. God help up when we have to travel with two kids!
