Liva & Laia : 10 Months + 1 Week

By Stine Kuskner - Tue 10th May 2011

10 MONTHS + 1 WEEK - 7 May 2011

The week calmed down a bit, but not much. Albert took the day off Wednesday to be home and help me. The doorbell rang non-stop, and Albert was on the phone most of the day - insurance companies, the building responsible, etc, etc, etc. The insurance companies agreed that our parquet needs to be changed, and possibly some of the doors as well. We just had the entire apartment done when we moved in less than two years ago...

At the same time, the neighbor 2 floors down has been complaining about water damage in her apartment, and the neighbor below us kept insisting it came from us and was our fault. The plumbers came Thursday and fixed the pipe, it wasn't our fault, it was a broken pipe in our down-stairs neighbor's apartment. So we've had insurance people and plumbers here for that, too.

Liva an Laia are doing so good, Heather came for a couple of hours on Thursday and they are such sweet girls, they are happy to be with her. Wednesday we went to playground with another mom and her daughter, the three girls had such a good time there. I can't believe how quickly things are happening now. Laia has had another tooth come out, she now has 6! Liva still has 4. Liva is walking all over the apartment with the walker we actually bought for Laia, but Laia doesn't care for it. Laia walks all over the place holding our hands. They love eating on their own, I keep giving them new things to try, they like everything. Today we had breadsticks dipped in cheese, the other day they had tomatoe and goat cheese, they love it all. They especially love chocolate and chocolate cookies, though! Like their parents... :)

10 MONTHS + 1 WEEK - 9 May 2011

After this week we had, Albert and I decided to enjoy the weekend. Friday was just as rough as the other days, I had meetings and work all day, when I finished Albert and I met up to go see a lawyer. He helped us do our taxes for 2010 - I have to pay money! :( - and helped me with paperwork since I'm working freelance. We didn't get home until 20:00 and we were both exhausted.

Saturday morning we all four went out, it was raining so we decided to go to a mall with a little play-area that Liva and Laia love. Though both Albert and I had quite a bit of work, we tried to enjoy the days together as a family, and worked when Liva and Laia napped. Saturday afternoon my mother-in-law came and Albert and I left straight away. She enjoyed time with the girls, Albert and I had a lovely afternoon and evening in the center. In the evening we opened a bottle of wine and watched a show we both quite enjoy on TV.

Sunday morning the weather was lovely, we all went for a walk, had coffee and brunch at a small café, Liva and Laia tried ice-cream for the first time. At first they were a little suspicious about this cold thing I was feeding them, but after a couple of spoonfuls they just couldn't get enough. We walked home along the beach, by the time we arrived home it was time for Liva and Laia's nap. In the afternoon I played with them while Albert cleaned the house, the evening we spent working - after the lovely dinner Albert prepared and the last of the wine from Saturday night. All in all a lovely family weekend!
