The first birthday! He is probably more important to us parents than to our one-year-old kids. We want to arrange the perfect birthday for them – however they would have it anyway as long as they are with their loved ones. The family and our friends should celebrate this day twice with our little man.
This family feels comfortable when it is not too cluttered – Not too much things hanging on the walls and not too much color. Lori likes to keep the appartment clean and organized. Sometimes, however, a little bit of a mess is ok, even if there is somebody coming for a visit- thanks to her daughter Merle she became more relaxed, because time is running too fast, she prefers to do something with her.
Looking at the garbage dumps, which are caused by disposable diapers, I have always faced the decision either to continue with disposable diapers or to try the cloth diapers. Lola is now clean during the day and therefore I thought that it would be the perfect time to check out the cloth diapers.
An underwear dream for little robber’s daughter and pirates- an ideal allrounder for the whole year!
The sensible skin of babies and toddlers need comfortable and high-quality underwear - the label Emil and Gustav not only ensures that, it also keeps their little bellies covered.
I've known Flo for a long time - unfortunately, we had lost contact. When I heard that he had a daughter, I thought I finally had a good reason to visit him and his family in Stuttgart. In the interview, they tell us about their parental leave, their needs and what they prefer to do when they have time.
That moment when your child needs his pacifie but you can not find it. We all know that. Ido not want to think about how many pacifiers we have bought since Lola was born. Either they disappear mysteriously or she chews on them and they slowly get destroyed. I can't do much against the chewing, but against the loss we needed a pacifier chain. I was looking for a nice chain when I discovered the brand Bella Jane.
When we visited the small family in Stuttgart, I realized immediately that I wanted to portray them after the Homestory. We chose a sunny day and met again in Stuttgart, in the heart of the city that Flo loves to ride on his BMX. Read more here!
With these cold temperatures that still prevail in Germany at the moment, you can easily imagine hearty dishes. In theory “käsespätzle” should be cooked for lunch, but also make a great dinner. They are a very typical dish and the preparation is quick and easy. Here is the recipe!
Margot, 24 years old, shares her life with Thomas, who is 25. They have three children, Hyacinthe (5), Gaspard( 3) and Maïa (18 months). None of them are going to school and they grow up free on their farm and in the fields where they grow organic products.
Margot, 24 ans, elle partage sa vie avec Thomas qui a 25 ans. Ils ont trois enfants, Hyacinthe cinq ans, Gaspard trois ans et Maïa 18 mois. Aucun ne va a l'école et ils grandissent librement au milieu de la ferme et des champs qu'ils cultivent en agriculture bio.
Most of us remember their first doll. I still have exactly in mind how she looked, how she was called and how much fun I had with her. There should be a doll in any children's room I think, and playing with dolls is of course not a question of sex!
As a child, I enjoyed the Easter time so much! My Mom was painting Easter eggs with us and decorated the house. The search for the nests was like a challenge for my siblings and I, every year it was about who finds his first, it was incredibly fun to go on the hunt and explore. I’m looking forward to celebrate Eastern this year with Lola. Here is what we are going to do and what will be in the nests.
OH LA LA MAMA visited Tine, Flo and her two-year-old daughter, Ilvy. It wasn't only about checking their appartment out, we also wanted to know about their life in Stuttgart with a child and how their lives as parents changed. Read on and learn more about this sympathetic three and sometimes even four-headed family.
Already Andy Warhol said that: “The best thing about a picture is that it never changes, even when the people in it do.” Almost every day, I am capturing many life moments On my smartphone and my camera's memory card. But only some of them transform into an actual photo, which we can then hold in our hands. Every once in a while I take some time to look through the computer and to create a folder with the most beautiful memories. After that, I only have to figure out, where I would let these snapshots be developed, and I quickly realized that CHEERZ was probably the best option.
Every mum knows that all beginnings are hard. Your whole life changes and takes a new direction, and everything accelerates from 0 to 100. Already during the pregnancy, in 2014, I started to get into the baby topic, I think I have looked for 20 weeks at all kinds of different strollers until I could choose one. I have informed myself about cotton diapers and of course about baby carriers. However, I did not know about each and every important item yet. I received from friends an elastic baby sling and borrowed a tightly woven scarf. How exactly I would carry my child in there did not interest me at that time. I thought, somehow, with the help of videos from the Internet, I was going to make it.
Lola likes to take part in everything we do, she is not happy if she only is spectator. She always wants to help in my activities, even when I cook. To begin with I had trouble to let her take part, because the kitchen only looked worse than it already did. Fortunately I quickly realized that if I include her in the work we both have lots of fun together, I can teach her many things and she is actually helping me in getting the work done.
Once we knew that we were expecting twins, it was clear that our lives would change quite a bit. I had been working at the university in Friedrichshafen until that time, and with Benni we used to spend days and evenings at the lake, as he is a triathlete and water enthousiast. Since the birth of the twins, the four of us are enjoying our free time as a crew and see the world from a different perspective, an exciting, wild and slightly careless perspective.
Since we've found out that two little hearts beat in my belly, we have had to change addresses, moved twice, and noticed many wondrous transformations in ourselves and our environment. This is probably the case if you allowed to get to know two small miracles, which we now accompany ... and they us. The miracle of having two little souls joining us in this world.
