A baby filled birthday

I celebrated my 32nd birthday in Oslo, amongst lots of babies. I got to hold little Olivier who's barely a week old and only just home from hospital. He gave his parents, Dominque and Petter, a bit of a scary time at first. Now he's doing really well and looking quite perfect. I don't think I've held such a young baby, he was just so fragile and new.

Ava and Jonathan showed up for dinner with their parents in tow. Super cute kids, they had us all wrapped around their fingers. We ate beschuit with muisjes for dessert in Olivier's honour.

As for my baby, it's now 19 weeks old. It's kicking too, which makes this whole baby thing a lot more real for me. Spending my birthday with all these babies was a very special gift.
