Millers Birthday

Happy Easter!
I hope it is one that hasn't involved you eating animals and if you have, I hope you might consider making a change, trust me, it is worth it!

Friday was Millers first birthday and we spent it at a new indoor soft play area in Tromsø. We had a great day, Miller learned how to climb pretty high and went on some big slides with Mom, Dad and Heidi. We ate there for a birthday lunch, the kids had french fries and bread from the cafe and some extras we had taken along and after explaining our diet to the kitchen were made some salad baguettes and the vegetarian pate which I now rely on came out of my bag! It was a really great day. Here in Norway almost everything is closed over Easter as it is a BIG holiday here. Most things shut down on the Wednesday lunchtime and reopen again the following Tuesday so to have this place open on Good Friday was fabulous and we all returned home tired but happy!

As to my decision on the baby milk issue, I have started to introduce cows milk for Miller. It is not a decision I made lightly and I so wish there were other well tested options for us now but I don't know enough yet to risk him not getting all he needs so we will try this for the near future and then re-assess later. Thank you for your comments and I welcome more advice anytime!

Enjoy the rest of the holidays and here's a little something you might find worth a look x

That indoor play area looks like tons of fun.

I, of course, celebrated Easter vegan style. Check out the vegan Easter basket I put together for my fiancee.
