Moving house…

When i was pregnant with my first baby, I thought that I wannted to live somewhere quiet out side of the city and away from people. But soon, after just half a year I started to feel lonely and too quiet. So we started to think moving back closer to the centre. And who would ever thought that moving from house to house it’s so hard think. That’s not the same that from rented to rented place. So we decided to paint all house by our self, make it look like new. Nothing is so easy how it’s sounds. When you start to look closer, crack there crack there cracks everywhere. Oh…One room in one day….Sometimes feels that at the time we gonna finish all house we gonna need to start all over again. But i trying to stay positive and dreaming about new place.

Early morning!

   Mmmmm…..how lovely. It’s Saturday early morning 7am. Mr. Wonderful and my little princess still sleeping. I could’t sleep. When ever T stays at home I am so happy. Happiest days in  the week. I can enjoy watching how growing father and daughter relationships and that is so wonderful, he is an amazing father, and to be honest I didn’t expect that but deep in side my heart I  felt that he is and will be great.

    It’d dark outside but I like it. I always like’d Autumn. Very often you hear that people become sad and depressive. But I like. And if you have bigger kids you still have lot of things to do. Go out and splash in puddle. Collect most beautiful leaves. Paint. It’s time to make hot chocolate, snuggle under the blanket watch some cute cartoon and giggle. Autumn, beautiful beautiful season. It’s changes what I like. You can change you wardrobe and can go shopping for new boots. And the colors what autumn brings, beautiful. I think in autumn is the right time for people go out of the city to the country side for weekends. It’s so beautiful and I am ready for it! :)

Time, where are you running?!

Ten month is gone, and my little girl already is big. She walk, she start to do thinks when you ask her, she is so independent. From one part I love is from other it’s scary.Still can’t imagine that one day she gonna start to talk, and then  you will not  notice that she gonna start school. That’s crazy how time is flying and it’s not stopping and not coming back. Every day is exited, exited to see what she gonna do new, and each thing is so awesome and beautiful. Can’t imagine life without her and my wonderful man who loves me as I am and loves our daughter. We are so lucky and so spoiled.

Sometimes I think I am too lazy because most of the time she spending time on her own. From other part I thing if I would be all the time next to her and trying to push her to do thinks she don’t want she wouldn’t be how she is now all walking and doing lot of thinks for ten month. I am really proud of her and wouldn’t change a thing.

I can tell that moving animals in your home helps a lot develop your child. Since the day Emily saw our can’t I saw in her eyes that she wanna run after them, and now she can do that. Still a bit clumsy falling down, but how wast she is down so fast she is up and again running. It’s amazing how in her little age she have so big strength of will. And that passion about everything, just love it. Love her so much.

 

Half healthy treat :)

If you want to have some energy threat but, really, think it gonna have lot of calories, think again. There is something I made. Raspberries with meringue. But you can use any fruit really, love it,so so yummy 😉

To make perfect meringue you will need : 2 egg white and 110 g sugar . To make the meringu

es, place the egg whites in a large bowl and, using an electric hand whisk on a low speed, begin whisking.
Continue for about 2 minutes, until the whites are foamy, then switch the speed to medium and carry on whisking for 1 more minute.
Now turn the speed to high and continue whisking until the egg whites reach the stiff-peak stage. Next, whisk the sugar in on fast speed, a little at a time (about a dessertspoon), until you have a stiff and glossy mixture.

Not easy…

Being mum in country where you don`t have lot of friend especially friends with children makes life a bit harder. Your man is working and you just sitting at home. And if you live a bit out of centre and you don’t have easy access to buses and trains than it’s makes everything a bit boring. Yes it’s great to spend time with your little one but how long you gonna walk around the same park. I get bored. Everything you need it this time is patience, patience and again patience. Need enjoy time that you have time, since little one gonna start to crawl that you gonna think back about that time that you had one to do some stuffs for your self. So my free time passion is baking, I think everybody knows that. Even when Emily is not sleeping I still doing that, if Emily is in good mood. So she can see what I am doing not just playing with her but teaching her already other stuffs, because how we all know that children have better memory. So I think every mum need do some think what she like in front of they children to show them and already teach them to be patience and there is not always everything just about them:)

The babies who nap in sub-zero temperatures.

So, the other day my boyfriend shocking was reading this article about Nordic parents who put they babies and toddlers outside for day nap in winter knowing that in Nordic countries could be really cold, but if it`s -5C or -10C they still gonna put they babies out side. From there, where I come from we have cold winters too and I know that in old times people would normally put them out side for nap but now it`s just too dangerous and most of them just don’t trust 21st century but if you have garden why not its good for baby having daily fresh air. So I decide to try and put my 4 month old baby girl out side in pram to see how long she gonna sleep there. And if she gonna sleep longer than at home because fresh air is good not just for us but for babies too 😉

Putting things together…

So one more day..and I fancy cook again …. I run out of white sugar but I had brow sugar. So I was looking around brown cupcake recipe and from few  I made my own Brown sugar chocolate cupcake with Cream cheese, brown sugar and peanut butter frosting … So so yummy     . Didn’t have a proper measurements so I needed improvise because I have some 250 g of brown sugar.

But approximately there is a recipe:

For 6-7 cupcakes:

  • 1/2 c brown sugar
  • 1/4 c butter ( If you using unsalted butter but a pinch of salt )
  • 3/4 c flour
  • 1/4 tsp baking powder
  • 2 1/2 tbsp cocoa powder
  • 1 egg
Mix everything together and put mixture into the paper cases until two-thirds full and bake in a preheated oven for 20-25 minutes in 170 – 180° . A skewer inserted in the center should come out clean. When ready leave the cupcakes to coll down.Then start to make frosting.
  • 80-100 g cream cheese
  • 1 big tbsp peanut butter
  • 2 big tbsp butter
  • 1 1/2 c brown sugar (If you feel that it’s not smooth enough that put more sugar)
 And frosting just put on cupcakes with spoon, and it’s don 🙂
 

 

All in one time

So today I decided try to make “Flat belly Brownies” that I found in Pinterest.com ( And recipe you can see in http://www.prevention.com/food/cook/flat-belly-brownies). I change some ingredients – I didn’t have canola oil,so i try to put olive oil and instead of vanilla extract I put Red food colour and i didn’t have walnuts I put chopped almonds .At the moment I get till half..because my little one decide that she wants eat 😉 It`s so predictable,  I think I am not only one with why it happened. But i take care with that and now i am ready to continue. So my brownies is in the oven. Will see what will come out of it all 🙂

Firs one!

So here I am…Finally starting my own blog. Was thinking about that for long time, and then when we was expecting little one I thought that I don`t gonna have time to write, but as Emily is such a cute Angel and sleeping I found my self sitting here and thinking to start, but don`t know with what…really exited. Still didn`t found my perfect blog theme but i getting there. Meanwhile finally enjoying a bit winter in Manchester, and get homesick, because in Latvia now is around -10 and more snow than in UK. And my favorite treat in this dark weather is Hot chocolate and sometimes when Emily already went sleep for night I add some my favorite Baileys…Mmmmm….Yummy …
