Today is a 1oo day anniversary of Hannes and I being parents and our parents being grandparents. Johannes is 100 days old and he’s been getting presents all day! At the moment, however, he’s finally sleeping (while listening to water sounds on my iphone).
By the way, many readers ask me how we picked the name for our baby boy. Well, Johannes is the full version of the name Hannes, so our son is basically named after his father. Hannes and Johannes, perfect!
Hannes has turned 25 a couple of days ago, so now both of us are a quarter of a century old! One of the things he got for his birthday was this flower art work from me. Beautiful, time consuming to create yet fleeting, that is so contemporary!
I get a lot of emails with questions about Johannes, about his eating habits and what he wears, what he likes and what he doesn’t like, about my ways with him and a lot more. Some day soon I’ll try to write all these things down and make a separate post.
Today, however, I’m posting some photos from his first days.
Johannes, 2 days old, born one week too early:
3 days old, swaddled (I used to swaddle him a lot, and still do sometimes):
6 days old, first day at home (you can see more in this post):
What a big difference in just two months if you compare these photos to the ones in the previous post!
Spring has been slow to come this year, but it seems like it’s finally here. I’m out walking several hours a day and I can’t help but notice all its different signs. For Johannes it’s his first spring ever and it makes me appreciate it even more. This is him today, two and a half months exactly.
Two months as a mother for me and two months as a person for Johannes. It’s been two amazing months and even though somewhere deep inside I sort of miss the tiny newborn Johannes, of course I’m extremely happy that he’s growing fast, getting fatter and stronger every day. He knows what he likes and what he doesn’t and he’s definitely not afraid to tell me about it! These last couple of weeks he’s learned how to laugh properly, so these days he finds most things pretty funny. And for me, his laughter is the best thing I’ve ever heard, seriously.
