La canicule

There’s finally a canicule in France — the dreaded, elusive heatwave! I love it since I thrive on hot, humid weather in the summertime but DH and Little Miss are having a much harder time. DH doesn’t support humidity very well and Little Miss is just a baby, so obviously she’s miserable (even though she […]

I’ll take some sleep on the side…

We’ve had another rocky weekend, Little Miss caught a bug on Thursday evening and has been fighting a fever for the last few days. I’m completely exhausted from night wakings and she’s been so difficult to get to sleep in general — we’ve been spending hours trying to get her calm in the evenings. We […]

Let’s sweep the bad weather away

It’s been another fun family weekend and yesterday was a blast, celebrating DH’s first Father’s Day! We finished the day with a walk around the Canal St. Martin, where we saw these street-sweeping dancers. The crowds and the sun were out and it finally felt like summer was here! But today when we woke up […]

A hamburger highlight

We had a busy weekend in Paris trying to get things done for the flat as Little Miss’ things have exploded everywhere and we need to organise asap! Saturday was a whirlwind of shops, bags, and taxis but we did have one memorable stop, for an order of hamburger and fries at Big Fernand, a […]

Crawling!

It’s happened so quickly, but at 9.5 months, Little Miss is finally crawling! On Thursday she was spending lots of time getting on her knees, on Friday she managed to get in an upright sitting position for the first time herself, and this morning she has started actually crawling! I’m so amazed and proud of […]

We spent the weekend alone

DH was back in Paris at the end of last week so Little Miss and I spent the last few days alone in the countryside. I’m always a bit nervous and needlessly paranoid that if anything should happen to me Little Miss would be completely alone and obviously unable to fend for herself. Despite all […]

Heading back to Paris

We’re heading back to Paris this afternoon after a few blissful days in the Loire Valley. Just when you get settled it’s time to leave again. Although we’ll be back soon *and* in the Loire for most of the summer as well. Sad to leave the peace and quiet but looking forward to meeting up […]
