It is even harder to keep this bloggin thing going with a child. And Felix has been really time consuming the last few days. He needs lots of attention, wants to be carried lots, etc.

I started a class last week for women who gave birth. Don't know if that is known everywhere but here in Germany we have it and the purpose is to activate and strengthen the muscles again that weren't used during pregnancy or suffered due to the weight or labor... It is just an hour a week but it feels nice to be on my own for this hour and to know that Stefan is with Felix so he's fine and I don't have to worry about that and just do something for me. Last night we did a little massage at the end. The instructor - Heidi - read a little story about being on the beach and feeling the sun burn on your skin and the the rain starts to fall, you feel the wind, ... There was one woman sitting and imagining this scene and the other one sitting behind her using her hands to "be" the sun and wind and rain on the womens back. I really felt the sun and the rain and everything and it felt soo good.

Afterwards I went to BurgerKing and grapped something for dinner and a Latte which was the second highlight of that night!!

Sunday morning thoughts...

Just some random things I wanted to post:

...Cathy Z. is back with her blog. I liked reading her blog and thought it was sad when she stopped it in fall 2006. But anyways- she's back!!!

...Just had a great breakfast with fresh baked croissants filled with nougat!! Mmmmh!!!

...Felix is sleeping right now so I got the chance to be on the computer, but Stefan is also waiting for it!!

... started a Mini album about 2006. Just finished the january page and have to wait for the pictures to be developed to continue with the other months!

Have a nice Sunday

Angels seem to make their way...

... to the ones that need them.

While being in the hospital giving birth to Felix there was a woman together with me in the room. She was given one of these beautiful angels with the metal wings by one of her visitors. I really tried to remember the name of the company but I guess I failed. Being back home I searched the net and couldn't find these angels.
Then I found in one of the blogs I read a post where someone else was given one of these angels and I tried to get information about the angels from her. She did comment upon my blog but not about the angels !! :-(
So again some days later my mom came visiting me - or I guess more Felix than me LOL - and she had a present for Felix with her. One of her friends gave it to her. I opened it up and immediately recognized the logo on the box and started screaming!!! My - or Felix' - angels has found us!!!

It's a Guardian Angel and the company is called Willow Tree and the designer is Susan Lordi. I just love these angels and the other figurines.

Then christmas eve came and in germany that is the time to open up the presents. Stefan had 2 for me. The first one was a perfume by Calvin Klein I wanted quiet for a while and the second one was another figurine:

It was a really touching gift for me, because I think Stefan sometimes has a hard time in finding a present for me - although I think I'm easy to find a gift for!! - and plus that he chose this one. Representing our new little family which makes it even more clear to me how happy he is having Felix and being a father now.

I hope these angels (although the family figurine is not really an angel one) will guide us through 2007 and make that this new year will be one of laughter and joy and good new things for us and our families.
