Happy 1st Birthday Harry

Today is a big day. Our youngest baby Harry celebrates his very 1st birthday. The whole year full of happiness, excitement, baby nappies, teething, rolling, sitting, crawling already passed by. Much faster, than I ever thought it would.

Happy 1st Birthday Harry

This boy has turned our life up side down. He definitely did. I remember so clearly, watching that fast appearing second blue line on my pregnancy test in shock. Gosh, I didn’t expect that coming. I remember then feeling hot and dizzy, having realised, that I was pregnant – I had to sit down on the sofa not to faint. And after Edward got back from work, I recall myself hesitating to tell him – we didn’t plan our little Harry, his appearance hit us by a huge surprise and messed our all plans up!

As much as I could not imagine my life with another baby then, I cannot see myself and I don’t want to even know where would we be without Harry now. Even though it took a while to get used to the fact about another baby coming into our family. I swear, I could not be happier right now. I just feel so complete. It feels like Harry was that missing piece of the puzzle, which has found its’ place. I finally feel, that I have everything I could ever wish for. Thanks to my children – I am feeling much richer than any billionaire on earth does – I really really do!

Happy 1st Birthday Harry

Harry himself, does not seem to be very excited about his 1st birthday, unfortunately. Poor baba has got a high temperature, for the third day in a row. I believe he is teething again. It’s not going too well this time. Harry’s temperature earlier had reached nearly 40 degrees! I gave him some medicines, but Harry threw everything out twice. One of those- all over me.

I am gutted, my baby is so poorly on his very 1st birthday, I really feel for him. 🙁 But even though we could not enjoy Harry’s day properly today, we will postpone it for Saturday. Edward’s Mum and Dad will be visiting, so we will have a small celebration with the family – just to pray Harry will be feeling better by then.

Happy 1st Birthday Harry

So very happy 1st birthday to our beautiful son. We love you so much!!! I know another year will go just as fast, so I will do everything I can to get most of our magic moments together. Many hugs, kisses, cuddles to you, our beautiful Son. xxxmy life, my passion

Harry’s 11 Months Old Development Update


I wanna cry! Harry is now 11 months old, next update will be closing the very first year of our fast growing baby boy. 🙁 Where did the time go??? I still remember like it was yesterday – me and my huge bump trying to survive June’s heat last year! It then felt, that my pregnancy is gonna last forever, but look at us now! 11 months old… I really really wanna cry… 🙁Harry's 11 Months Old Development Update

OK, I am gonna try to compose myself, as I need to get on with Harry’s 11 months old development update – I am already late – apologies for that. Where do I start.

Personality wise Harry is changing by the day! Most of the time he is cheerful and very smiley, he hardly ever cries. He knows how to fight for his toys though and wouldn’t give up easily. Will be screaming (not crying) till he gets it back (just like daddy ha ha). 😀Harry's 11 Months Old Development UpdateHarry is becoming so boyish. I can already see his preferences for cars over dolls. And I am so happy about it, as I was not sure of how Harry will be dealing with this. Our house is full of barbies, princesses, doll’s prams, baby dolls and other girly stuff- since the majority we are women in here. It is lovely to watch how our boy naturally chooses to play with his boyish stuff rather than girlish (even though I do find him sometimes biting Barbie’s hand or leg or trying to rip My Little Pony’s tail off). When we go for a walk he pays a lot of attention to passing cars- I have never noticed this when my girls were growing up.

Harry's 11 Months Old Development Update

Harry enjoys playing with Daniella. He definitely sees her as a play mate. As soon as Daniella enters the room, Harry’s face always lights up. I am very happy to see them enjoying each others company, I hope this will never change. Continue reading Harry’s 11 Months Old Development Update

Harry’s 10 Months Old Development Update

This month went even faster than any other month did!  Harry has turned 10 months old on 30th April, but even a while after the date I found myself telling to people, that our baby is still 9.5 months old and Edward was telling, that he is 9 months old! Wonderful parents we are, aren’t we? 😀

Harry's 10 Months Old Development UpdateHarry is such a big boy now! He can crawl so fast, that I have to run (not walk anymore) after him, to stop him from going to the bathroom or tasting dog’s food. Our 10 months old baby can now stand up holding on the furniture. If he sees anything on the table that he is able to reach, he will happily throw all to the floor!

Harry's 10 Months Old Development UpdateHarry’s personality is really shining through now! If Daniella has a toy, that he would like to play with, our cheeky boy starts demanding for that toy by making sounds, that really gives impression of a very strict tone of voice and he also has that serious face, to show he is not joking! 😀 You can easily guess by Harry’s body language, that he is telling Daniella off for not giving him a toy! It’s so funny to watch, trying to boss everyone around at 10 months old already, ha ha. So what is going to happen later???

Harry's 10 Months Old Development UpdateHarry’s eating is still going great. Harry likes pretty much everything, whatever is given to him. Our boy has a good appetite. I am combining Baby Led Weaning method and purees – it seems to work very well for us.

Harry's 10 Months Old Development UpdateHowever, he is not so naive no more, not very easy to trick him. For example, once I bring Harry some food, he doesn’t start eating straight away. He firstly takes his tongue out and carefully licks it. If he likes the taste, then he goes for it, if he doesn’t, there is no way to get it in his mouth. This always makes me giggle. Kids these days… 🙂 Continue reading Harry’s 10 Months Old Development Update

My Makeover & Harry’s First Haircut

Before I share our holiday in Lithuania experience, I thought mine and Harry’s haircuts deserve a special attention and the whole separate post. I really want to share this with you!

My Makeover & Harry's First Haircut

I had my haircut and colour done last week, on Saturday. I needed it badly, as I couldn’t control my hair no more and hated the way it looked.  I also wanted to look pretty before our holiday in Lithuania, of course. 🙂

This time I opted for a tiny change. My plan was to get my fringe back. I really missed it and (being completely honest) I love how it helps me to cover those fast appearing wrinkles on my forehead (I hate them so much!). In terms of colour, I wanted to add some darker highlights into my forever blond hair colour. I would have loved to dye it dark or chocolate brown completely, but darker shades simply doesn’t suit me at all! 🙁

I handed myself into Laura’s from Socio Hairdressing arms and was kind of hoping for the miracle!

I had highlights done- some blond and some very dark brown. We left more blond hair at the front, near my face and added many dark highlights at the back. After the colour was done, Laura from Socio Hairdressing cut my fringe and trimmed the ends. I was very happy with the final result! What do you think? (Sorry about my silly selfies, it wasn’t meant to go on the blog)

My Makeover & Harry's First Haircut

Harry’s first haircut ever was done in Lithuania. Our boy is not even 10 months old yet, but he was desperate for a haircut already! I booked the appointment for him at the place, that specialises in cutting children’s hair – have all the equipment required to keep little ones nice and calm- toys, cartoons, books… Harry was given an Ipad playing Twinkle Twinkle Little Star (his hit number 1). He was so interested in the song, that the hairdresser could cut his hair without stressing at all. Continue reading My Makeover & Harry’s First Haircut

Harry’s 9 Months Old Update

Here I am, finally writing Harry’s 9 months old update! Another month, another update – time really doesn’t wait.9 months old baby boy development update

I was so sure Harry will be properly crawling by the age of 9 months old. But no. He does move around a lot – backwards, forwards, like a caterpillar, but doesn’t yet crawl. Daniella was a confident crawler at this age. Harry seems to be a little lazy (got it from his daddy I think). 🙂 Anyway, I know, that some babies don’t even crawl at all, so who knows, maybe our Harry is one of them. 🙂

9 months old baby boy development update

Besides the fact , that Harry doesn’t yet crawl, that doesn’t mean, that he sits in one place. NO-NO-NO. I can never find him where I left him! He loves navigating backwards, not seeing where he is about to go, therefore, I often find my cheeky boy under the coffee table or under the laundry rack. I can’t stop giggling while writing this, you should see his funny face when he struggles to get out. 😀9 months old baby boy development updateHary’s favourite occupation at the moment is to get himself to that same coffee table and to clear it’s bottom shelve completely- Daniella’s magazines, pencils, everything what’s there – all must go to the floor – as per our new housekeeper Harry! Only ‘few’ extra things for mummy to tidy up. 🙂

9 months old baby boy development update

This month Harry’s night sleep was definitely all over the place. I had not one and not two sleepless nights. At some point I was feeling so knackered, I thought I was reaching my limits. It was probably to do with the fever , that we all had before Easter. But thank God fever is gone, Harry sleeps much better and mummy has her energy back (the question is – for how long?). 🙂 Continue reading Harry’s 9 Months Old Update
