Last week on thuesday, after nine months of patience, our beautiful baby girl was born; Mette Elba. She is a little miracle and it’s amazing what happens when you become a mother. We are enjoying her so much and she is so sweet and adorable. I can’t stop looking at her so that is basically all we do!
With the snow outside we make it cosy inside with the three of us and all friends and family who come to visit and meet her. This is a precious time!
Joey and I made a baby anouncement together. It’s her journey into our lives in a little video. Hope you will enjoy it! You can also check it at www.mette-elba.nl
Last week I asked Sophia (friend, photographer, co-founder of Broodnuchter ) to make some photos of me and my belly. Often I think pregnancy photos are corny and a little bit strange. But I love Sophias style so I kwew I would be in great hands. I am really happy with the result. My personal favourites are the first one (because its classic and timeless) and the one with Jack the cat with his eyes closed because it’s a cosy image.
Just by coincidence I found out that the multi tassel bracelet was published in the Anthology Holiday Gift Guide through the lovely Stacy from Leifshop (Brooklyn based online shop) I love this magazine and got a copy for Sinterklaas last year.
We enjoyed our last christmas breakfast with just the two of us and of course Jack, the cat! Joey made some really nice photos with the new camera. (check out more pics at Cloud Cuckoo) Christmas eve and Christmas day we spend with family and we got really spoilt with nice gifts.
As you can see our home is getting more finished every week now. There are a few things I’ll keep on my to do list when the big belly (38 and a bit weeks now!) is gone and ‘working’ in the house is little bit easier.
At this moment I am getting more excited about the near future with the three of us and leaving ‘our lives as we know it’ behind. I am pretty much ready to be a ‘mom’ and can’t wait to meet her.

Here a sneak preview from the babyroom. Only 6 weeks left. You can imagine I am counting the days till she is joining us and we will be like a real family not just a couple with a cat! I am starting to look forward to it more and more and getting more excited and even a bit nervous.
We have a really nice new camera, the Canon 5D Mark III so Joey is very happy with his new toy and is practicing at the moment to make pretty shots. Most of them are from me with my growing belly. Check out the Dutch magazine, Ouders van Nu in the near future, you will probably find some photos in there^-^
Last weekend I had my suprise babyshower! It was so much fun and I got really spoilt with all kinds of presents. Today I made a canopy for the cradle and tomorrow I will start making the baby card. A nice new little project to keep busy (never problems with that !)
Check out more photos at Joey’s blog; Cloud Cuckoo.
