Lazy bloggers are the worst and I’m certainly one of them. So starting this post to apologize about that. Here’s a little update about me and baby V (mostly baby V).
I’m actually sitting in my bed with my little baby beside me. She’s got the fever and is sleeping :( Second time now. I’m guessing it might be more teeth coming, she got two already and had a fever a couple of days before those arrived. I feel so sad for her, I know it’s not dangerous but still, she so tired and sleepy and her head probably hurts or feels weird in some way. I remember having a fever (haven’t had one in many years) and it feels something like your skull would be filled with cotton, but not in a soft way. So as you already figured out, the images are not from today but a couple of days old. Wanted to show you her cute Adidas jacket that’s a hand me down from cousin Dante.
Vesper’s wearing Adidas + Mini Rodini and I’m wearing Samsø Samsø + Adidas.
The pillow's here :) Grandma made a pillow for Vesper's chair. The fabric is from Svenskt Tenn and is called Elefant, it was created by Svensk Tenn's founder Estrid Ericsson and comes in yellow, green, brown, blue, black, grey and red. We got so much fabric so grandma will make us a couple of pillows for the sofa as well. I have a lampshade in the fabric from before which I'm planning to keep in baby's room when she gets one.

Since the weather is extremely boring at the moment I want to give you a heads up on The Handmaid’s Tale. There’s already been 9 episodes released so it’s perfect to start watching during these rainy days. I get very emotional while watching. Can’t help myself. Just the thought of someone taking my daughter from me makes me paralyzed. I think the series brings up a lot of important and current matters, such as the climate change and surrogacy. In my mind, not many women would voluntarily give away the child that has been growing inside them for 9 months. It’s a bit scary how people defend surrogacy and try to claim it’s the women’s choice. I’m sure there are women who would carry a friends child by choice. But the extremely poor women in India, if they had choices like we do, they would probably choose differently. Just a few of my thoughts on a very sensitive subject.
