Carla Emilia Anastasia Holmer


  Stockholm Sweden  





20131028IMG_7031.JPG (449536 byte)
Today on October 28, 2013, Anastasia got holes in her ears done. It was painful, and her eyes was full of tears, but not a sound came from her, because this was what she wanted most of all!



She was born today on Wednesday May 13 2009 at 01:30 AM

We have not been able to decide a name yet, so we are trying Carla, Rebecca, Emilia, Felicia, Valencia, Ofelia, Alicia, Philippa, Angelica, Lass, and many more. Most common are Tösen or just Lillan (Lass or just Little)!
We don't have much time left to choose a name, before we get the law enforcement knocking our door (at least I hope they knock first).

We are seriously trying (today 4 July) Carla Regina Anastasia with the last as her given name.
Is there an expression in English like "decision anxiety"?

Now, with only a few days to go before the deadline on August 13 are we seriously trying a "new" middle name.
What about Carla Emilia Anastasia, with Emilia as given name?

The alternative version here!
When our cat followed me out on the backyard for the photo session, and a second after the shot, with an affectionate stroke turned both the mother and baby bouquets off the edge of the sandbox.


This morning Tuesday August 13, exactly three months after our little Lass was born, we have actually managed to sign the official document (and delivered it to the snail mail box this morning) that will be registered tomorrow at the entity 2003 of the Swedish Tax Authorities in the town Östersund, who takes care of these matters.
We are at the point of no return, and it feels alright!
Our little Lass is from now on Carla Emilia Anastasia Holmer! Her given name is Anastasia.

In the evening on the twelfth day in May, four days after the estimated arrival, Margarita noticed more activities and increased contractions. A check with the hospital gave the answer that they were very busy and they asked us not to come in until the contractions came in six minutes intervals. They came down below six minutes very soon after the last contact with the hospital. A cry from downstairs woke me up, and Henrik soon after, we dressed and called a neighbour we arranged to take care of Henrik. No answer, call again, no answer! Let's go and knock on their window! Luckily they were at home and took care of Henrik! On my way back I took the car out of the garage and parked it running and the doors open outside the front yard, went in and found Margarita at the kitchen sink saying -The water has broken, call an ambulance! I think her head is coming now! 
I don't remember if I helped Margarita down on the floor first or called 112, but the girl in the switchboard said -Ambulance is on the way! Keep the line open so we can talk if you need me! 
I'm not completely sure about every movement from now on, but the next 10 minutes were the most fantastic minutes I have experienced!

(I only used the flash when I was sure her eyes were closed)

A short movie
"Sweet dreams" on daddy's arm

Doesn't she say "Dad" in the beginning of the second sequence? Didn't you hear it? The first D is missing, eh, the last d is missing too, but all the rest is there! ;-))

It's only a matter of right angles for arms and legs, to get the body in balance, and the best sleep.

aha aha,
I like it!

After the rainy Midsummer weekend the sun has finally arrived.
Working days ahead, so it's not so strange.

20090622IMG_4113.JPG (330976 byte)

First time out for a few minutes.
A strange feeling!

I forgot to fold down the kitchen sun shades for a while, but the temperature exceeded 32ºС anyway so we decided to go to the beach in late afternoon.
It was probably above 28ºС in this shallow cove in the Baltic sea, so we had difficulties to get Henrik out of it. What the he.., we only have such weather a few days every year. I think we got him up around nine o'clock.
Meanwhile Little and I had a nice chat in this movie!

This afternoon July 1, we had a little photo session in the kitchen.
For once in a while it wasn't dad behind the camera, but mom!

It was difficult to set up this photo session. I was eager to get the same settings as in the old picture. When I realized it was impossible (after a month or so) we had a ball taking these pictures, and many more on the Saturday afternoon on 4 July.

Please enjoy!
