Our apartment has changed since we returned home from hospital. We are three now, and nothing seems more important than creating a comfortable environment for all of us.
In the pictures above: awesome presents (S gave me the beautiful world necklace after J's birth), things in the baby's room, good food to be eaten with joy (Yes, we cook! But I have to say that grandmothers bringing precooked meals are very helpful!), new items and corners in our home (soothies and an armchair that turned into our breastfeeding chair), reading magazines while holding J in my arms.
These words by Nikaela Marie Peters (in an article in Kinfolk Magazine issue 11) accurately describe the changes in my apartment: "When my son was born, my house became alive. I noticed it in the first week. The structure I'd come to accept as ordinary [...] started acting extraordinarily. [...] I say that having a baby brought my house to life. And by coming to life, it turned from a structure into an environment, a possession into an ecosystem."
