Xmas cookies

This year, we have baked lots of cookies and Lukas helped to eat them all. We love especially the raspberry thumbprint cookies, yummy. What is it about Xmas and cookies, I wonder?

Lesson learned

Today, Lukas, Matilda and I we went to a local fire station to donate a toy and food. I hope that it will teach Lukas that it's good to share and give. I was explaining for few days already that it is important to share with kids who don't have as much as we have.

He literally learned the lesson on the spot because after we handed over the gifts, he received a firefighter hat. :) Proudly he was telling Patrick later that he gave a toy to a boy who doesn't have anything.

Watching the clouds

While driving in the car, Lukas and I talk about what we see outside the windows. Today, after the rain stopped and the sun came out and the big white clouds were moving slowly, he said "Look Mommy, the clouds look like a space ship." "This one is so long, like a huge space ship." I said "Where is it going" and he said "To space. And I am Captain Rex and I can fight with both hands." Great observation he has and a big imagination too. I love him so much.

Matilda is officially walking!

She is taking more and more steps on her own but today she even made it around the corner. My sweet pea!

Lukas and his musings about Santa

Of course, Lukas is waiting for Santa. This morning - while eating his breakfast - he said "I like Santa". I said "That's great, Santa is nice". He says "Actually I love Santa. I will hug Santa. But I will not kiss Santa. He has bad breath"... WHAT? Where does this come from??! :)

I love rice!

Matilda liked the rice a lot.

Good brother

This is how it goes: Lukas is playing with Lego. Matilda is coming around the corner and crawls super fast to reach the Lego's. Lukas says "No Matilda" in a rather harsh tone but to Matilda, that means "special invitation". She crawls around his legs, between his legs, whatever way she can find to get to the forbidden Lego's. Another yell "Mommy! Matilda is playing with my Lego's". Now Mommy has to help.

It might sound like he doesn't want to share but it's not. Matilda is not allowed to play with the Lego's and Lukas knows it. He is just being a good brother.

Hair bow

Matilda - 10 months old (yesterday). Wearing a hair bow, for the very first time.

First intro

Yes, we have a blog now too. So that you can see how Matilda and Lukas are growing. If you like it, please come back. If you don't, still come back. ;)

This morning, all of us woke up with sore throats, sniffing and coughing. Matilda also has an ear infection. On Saturday, I took her to the doctor's office for a booster flu shot and before she knew it, the doctor was poking and squeezing her and declared she has an ear infection. She is doing fine though. She lost a little bit of appetite but it's not too bad.

Lukas is supposed to nap now but I hear him having dialogs with his Bionicle friends. Hopefully they have to nap too.

Alright, this is the first of many postings. If I don't forget. ;)
