The rain messes up our routine, and the little one gets a little anxious when she can’t walk around as usual. We might need new toys!

Still rainy around here, still dreaming of sunshine and beach…


I just died a little!

Both movieStars were in the bathroom, having a bath. I was in the living room.

Suddenly movieStar screamed “Help!” and I jumped. Rushed to them, no idea what happened or what I should be preparing for.

Turns out tinyMovieStar had slipped, soapy and whatnot, and swallowed a little water, not even crying. Mom had panicked.

Ever since the baby was born I worry about moments like this, and my mind tries to play out what would happen, what I would do, what could I do, would I freeze, would I…

Well, turns out I didn’t freeze.
But I almost died with that scream.

Always a thrill to cross Vasco da Gama Bridge, and we did it again today. Perks of going to the dentist!

Longest bridge in the EU, and a beautiful one at that!

ID Cards: Check!

We now have brand new cards, all three of us, and it only took us around 5 months to get them! Yay for bureaucracy!

On the way back we took a different route and walked by the city hall.

Fed up with widgets on homescreen and the constant mess it was turning into every time I tried to add another to the smart one I was using. Apps get shuffled, moved to next page, even though there’s plenty of room on the main one. There has to be a better way.

10K today, again. We’re getting fit thanks to tinyMovieStar.

Not the nicest looking part of town, but it’s the view from the pediatrician’s office.

And we just found out another friend is pregnant! That’s the third this month! Yay for babies!

Showed Ted Lasso to movieStar and she loved it! We watched all of it. That’s the second time for me. And I would do it again, truth be told!

So far, so good…

Managed our walk in the morning, met a friend by chance and talked for a while.

This afternoon there’s the pediatrician appointment and another house visit.

The Raven, our city’s bird. Portrait mode screwed it up a bit, but…

Really nice way to end the day. We didn’t get our afternoon walk, but did meet @helgeg, so that was more than worth it.

A couple of beers were shared, and a few friends showed up to top it off.

And Panda Cantina’s ramen is still yummy.

Perfect day.

Thank you, tinyMovieStar, you’re very thoughtful. We appreciate that.

Vroom Vroom…

Who’s there ?

Three is the magic number…

🇩🇰 3️⃣

Done with the weekend and looking forward to this week. It’s a busy one: tinyMovieStar’s fifth monthiversary, pediatrician appointment and we’re finally getting out ID cards delivered! The three of us are getting new ones! Excited for the extra name!

There’s an IPA festival happening today at the local brewpub. Not sure we’ll be able to make it… 😔 🍺

Sunday morning

Rain stopped for a while, it seems, so we went out and walked again.

São Pedro viewpoint, down to Carmo, Rossio and the Station, and up Elevador da Glória, a ruthless climb.

I think but don’t exist

tinyMovieStar was exhausted, slept through it all.

And we’re seeing a rise in infections in the country. Not good.


Managed our walk, no rain so far.

A little over 5K, but some hard climbs en route.
Photos in a moment.

Today we found out tinyMovieStar doesn’t like entertaining at home. Very social outdoors, but don’t even think about meeting us at home! She cried her little heart out when her aunt and uncle, whom she knows already, came inside!

I support her! How could I not ? Look at her!

I forgot I was supposed to attend a workshop this weekend and made other arrangements! That’s what happens when there are so few appointments on the calendar, I don’t even check it anymore.

That one time a teacher made me cry so hard I tried hiding the tears with a camera, and couldn’t.

🇹🇱 😭

tinyMovieStar is almost crawling. She’s doing the commando-style, arm-powered on her belly thing, but almost able to use her legs! It’s amazing to watch.

Set up one of the smaller square widgets on the homepage and the other apps kept getting moved around. So now the widget is gone.
