New Life & New Love

Jan 9, 2015

And here she is. Our little baby girl, Frida Maria Vikstrom, who isn’t actually so little, weighing 4.9kg (10 pounds, 13 ounces) and being 57cm long.

IMG_2067She has cheeks worth writing home about…

Rather impressively large hands, feet and belly….

IMG_2072And a gentle, gorgeous vibe which has claimed our hearts and gotten us all stuck for words. But in summary, we’re overwhelmed with the specialness of these precious moments.

So to make the most of them – to fully savor them, we’re taking some time off work for the next month’ish while we immerse ourselves in our new housemate and learn her ways. We’ll go a bit quiet on this blog – however, we will be back in force and of course you can still reach us through email with any questions though, so don’t be strangers.

Here’s to new life and new love x x x.

    OMG she’s perfect! Looks like one of those little china dolls that Franklin Mint put out. Only infinitely more precious.
    Looking forward to meeting her at APC12 🙂
