Almost none of my blog readers follow my Instagram, so I thought I’d do a recap here. So here some of the things that has happened during the last month.
Some of the huge amount of flowers we received after coming home. As usual, from friends and family, work and school:
Of course, he’s been getting lots of presents, and we still receive parcels with tiny clothes a couple of times a week!
The first time away from the baby (3 weeks old) at The Killers concert. It went really well!
The Killers doing their version of Forever Young. This song used to make me a little age conscious, but not this time! These days I feel younger than ever, having such a small baby.
Read my mind. This was the fourth time I saw Killers in concert, and this time they weren’t quite as amazing as the last time I saw them at Sziget Festival in Budapest or the first time I saw them on an airfield in Rome. Still, they were good.
Wearing an original outfit from the 70′s (which used to belong to one of his uncles), mostly for fun:
The first fika with the baby, mum and me (the baby stroller beside the table). However, we are still trying to avoid bringing Johannes to public places too often.
Johannes being cool:
And here some of our early mornings:
Young father, young son, early morning:
I can’t believe it’s been a month since I first met my Johannes! In a way it feels as if he came to us only yesterday, so tiny, new and absolutely perfect. On the other hand, it’s like he’s always been here with us, and I can hardly remember that we once had a life without him. Having him here, we’ve discovered a whole new dimension of happiness, deeper and stronger than anything we knew before.
I’m live-blogging from Malmö Arena, where The Killers are performing tonight! This is the fourth time I get to see them. I hope that the concert will be as amazing as the one in Budapest last summer and that they are going to play lots of songs from their latest album, Battle Born!
Johannes and I have managed to take some portraits of the two of us. Unfortunately, he was asleep all the time. Cute!
Guys, I can’t describe how touched I am by all your kind comments and emails! I hope you can forgive me for not being able to answer all of you personally, as there are lots of other things I need to do these first few days!
But what I can say is that I’m so unbelievably happy now, in a way I had never imagined I’d ever be. I mean, I was truly looking forward to meeting my child while I was carrying him, but the way I feel about him now that he is here has really exceeded my expectations by far. I think euphoric might be the word. I guess, it’s that kind of unconditional love I’d heard of before, but couldn’t relate to. But it turns out you have to experience it to know it.
And yes, it all hit me the moment I held him for the first time, and I knew right away that this feeling was forever.
I thought today we’d take a look at some of my recent Instagram photos!
Everyone were supposed to wear masks to the party:
I just got myself an Instagram account, but I think I’ll be updating a lot. I go under swedishloveaffair.
