    Baby Care Plans

    We had a great plan for how we'll split the parental leave for the first two years of Jordan's life... until we found out that the new parental leave bill won't take effect for babies born before August 2022 and as I couldn't keep my legs crossed for that long, we had to change our plans. In general we have a few principles that we'd like to honor when it comes to taking care of our little one. These are things...

    Bebe is here!

    As you might have already guessed from the blog not being so active in the last few weeks, noticed from my instagram or just figured that even I can't be pregnant for the rest of my life - our adorable, perfect baby has been born! Nothing about the birth went as I had hoped but all is well with the baby and all was well with the mom too once she got the adorable baby in her arms...

    What to pack in a hospital bag?

    And so the time flies - the day of the birth is getting closer and it's time to start getting the hospital bag ready! I'm pretty sure there's very little one actually needs to pack, especially if the hospital is close enough that someone can bring you things you need but I felt that preparing a list of things I might need was fun as planning is one of my favorite activities! I've made three lists, one for mom, one for the support person (dad/partner/other)...

    Gender Disappointment

    I tried to come up with a nicer title for the topic but if all wisdom starts with acknowledging the facts, it's possibly best to call it as it is. I wrote in an earlier post that I had hoped for a girl and it took me a moment to accept that we'll be having a boy instead. It feels like when I've talked about this, a lot of people come to me and tell me they had a similar...
