Yes, Mason is three months already. To be official, even a week more than that. Time went crazy fast. Let me give you an update!
Three months baby
Oh, my! My baby opened his eyes to the world. He changed so much ever since he’s three months old now. First of all, physically. He can roll by himself, to the left or right. When he’s holding both my hands or fingers, he can go up from laying down to standing up. He LOVES to stand up all day. No, he even gets upset when we would try to make him sit or lay down. That’s for little newborn babies right?

He’s interacting more as well. Talking back to us when we talk to him. Smiling to mommy! But not so sure if he would smile to just anyone. To oma, he would smile for sure (oma is Dutch for grandmother, my mother). Also to “oma oma”, as we call my grandmother (the mother of my mother). It’s amazing that we finally could visit the Netherlands and show off my little son to my family and friends. Oh, so amazing to see him together with people that love us so much. It was a fun 23 days in Holland. We went to Amsterdam for the first time with Mason. As his little sister Féline was born there in 2014, this city will always be so special to us. Even though she’s no longer here. We went to her little garden (grave) in the Netherlands as well. It was a very special feeling. It is sad that she could no longer be with us. Forever she’ll be missed. We will always be a family of four, as Mason is our second kid.
Stop the time
This feeling, like YOU JUST WANT TO STOP THE TIME. Where is my little mini mini baby? He was so cute and small, his fingers were the smallest and cutest. Now he’s a little mini buddha. Such a little fatties everywhere. His cheeks! His butt and oh his legs and belly. It’s so cute, he’s so soft and such a little cutie. As you can read, I am in love with my own son. This mother love is the best feeling in the world. I would do ANYTHING for him. At home, we have even more love to share now and we are so so grateful to have a ‘new’ family again. We just want to stop the time and keep being in the moment. Since life is good now!

What is ahead of us?
But wait, every day, this adventure gets more and more beautiful! Parenthood is a fantastic adventure. It’s amazing and scary at the same time. Scary to have such a LIFE to care for. We will be responsible for him, his manners, his behavior. But I wouldn’t want it any other way. Mason is a beautiful baby. His character is very happy and he’s often satisfied. I laugh every day when he smiles to me. The first thing in the morning I see his beautiful eyes and his cutie face smiling at me! It’s the best feeling.
Imagine… one day he’s going to turn one, five, ten and so on! What is ahead of us? What more beautiful memories will we make together?
For the first time, we can enjoy the Bugaboo (stroller). He never liked to lay down, but now he’s in the baby seat. I changed the bugaboo into the little seat, so he can see everything. He falls asleep and he’s sleeping outside the house after walking outside. Like a real Swedish baby, ha!
He is totally in love with Woezel and Pip (the song ‘la la la’). Pip is his biggest friend. We got a big ‘Pip’ from friends in the Netherlands and he’s looking at Pip every day. It’s wonderful to see that he has a favorite little friend. He is even smiling to Pip as wel.
Talking about friends. The doggies (Pascha and Bobby) are becoming his friends too. He starts seeing them and he likes it when they come closer. It wonderful that both the dogs and Mason like each other.
You have no idea, how it feels to loose a baby. And you have no idea how it feels to become parent again after losing a baby. These feelings are the most wonderful and deep and sometimes sad at the same time. It’s not new to be a mother. It’s not new to be a family. But NOT having the fear that your baby can die any second. Not going to bed, hoping that your little baby is there the next morning. But, kind of, knowing that all is well. That Mason is going to grow up healthy and that we can love him even more tomorrow and the day after and the week after…
Our past makes us, enjoy every single moment we are as a family even more. Wow, Mason is three months. 25% of the year is gone… Autumn is just starting. Time for his second season.
Thank God for Mason <3
Thank God for Féline <3
Lots of mommies love,
