12 on the 12th

My favourite blog initiative ever. On the 12th of each month, bloggers around the globe take 12 photos of their daily life and post them. Not only great for getting to know other bloggers but also as a personal visual diary. So please join the fun with Caro here:

Got up at 5am with the little one. So I was able to watch the last 30 minutes of the game France vs. Uruguay. Pretty average – many fouls but no goals. Not my type of game.

A friend drops to cuddle our little one. And she bring cupcakes from my favourite shop “Little Cupcakes”. Heaven!

She also brings this little fellow along. At the moment Mr.Bunny is as big as little Victoria or even bigger, but I am sure this is going to change soon ;-)

While Vicky sleeps for an incredible 3.5 hours in a row, I work on her birth announcements. After much research I decided to craft them. I just love to make something special for a special occasion like that.

While waiting for Vicky’s arrival I made the cards from white cardboard and red-and-white-heart-tape – so now they are ready to be written. The envelopes are addressed. Photos are developed and just need to be stuck onto the cards.

And aren’t these the cutest stamps ever for a birth announcement. Mama Roo and Baby Joey ;-)

Looking at my baby, my heart just skips a beat every time I see her tiny, tiny hands. Delicate ears. Soft baby hair.

Our washing machine is doing extra shifts at the moment. And as you can see there are not many pieces of my lovely husband or me. All sweet baby pink.

Beautiful flowers! I wish I could make them last longer – they add such a wonderful sense of spring to these dark winter days.

Unfortunately my black thumb works on potted as well as cut flowers ;-( So I am afraid they will die pretty soon.

My husband is the best chef ever. And he always makes sure that his girls have a lot of nice food. Tonight we have a beautiful, juicy casserole with veggies and meat.

A little bit of soccer on TV before going to bed. At 10pm my eyes just become too droopy. Maybe I’ll be back at 4.30am for the game England vs. USA ;-)

@Ute: Thank you so much! Ich bin gerade auch voll im WM Fieber. Heute abend ist das grosse Match D vs. AUS. 3:1 ist mein Tipp.

@seifenmacherin: very surprise about the result. I didn't see the match in the end - too tired, but I think I didn't miss too much.

@Jolijou: I know. I believe she already changed so much in her first 2 weeks. You can literally watch her grow and develop new skills. Wow!
