Until April 30, my birthday used to be on the day before Queen’s day, a good time of the year in spring. Whenever my birthday was over, the next day was Queen’s day and therefore I could party another day! I have enjoyed that for many years with my husband and kids, however it is over now. The new King has changed Queen’s day into King’s day and I just can’t get used to it. It feels simply unnatural to me, why would they even bother changing it? It is only 3 days in difference! And I don’t expect princess Amalia to change it up again after Willem Alexander and celebrate her birthday in December… To still get a little bit into the mood, orange is a colour of happiness and it cheers u up, so here is an orange collage: Bathing cape and put-on pillow cover by Cottonbaby, Koelstra Binque, Deryan Travelcot, Hevea pacifier, diaper from TotsBots, cuddling cloth lion by LabelLabel, retro bouncer from Baby Bjorn and plate by Bellemont!
To me Christmas is a very special period, not only because they are family days, but also because my oldest son was born on Christmas Eve (really!). Our Christmas baby got was born two weeks too early and because we were in the middle of a house move we preferred to have him at the hospital. But the delivery went so smooth that I could just have had him at home. I remember the entire delivery in detail but also the Christmas atmosphere and the Christmas Carols of the hospital choir. Today is our last day at work and then we will recover from all the hectics here at the editorial department! And while we are listening to Christmas songs, we have gathered a nice collection of baby products. From left to right and bottom down these are: Greentom Upp stroller, Bellemont plate, Stokke Crusi stroller, Maxi-Cosi Rubi carseat, Nuna Pipa carseat, stuffed animal of Spiegelburg, Pacopod caringbag, Buddy Gelpack star in case of accidents, white music box Star Cottonbaby, BabyBjorn rocking chair Balance Soft, storing basket Cottonbaby, Bumbo chair. Now I am going to enjoy a few days of peace and the celebration of our own Christmas child! I wish you all a wonderful Christmas and see you next year!
