Almost walking and loving the TV!

Now Kristofer is 20 months old and my litle one that got the name Hildur Emelía 4 months, time flies!! Hildur is my mothers name and she was very proud that her grandchild got her name.....but she also told me that she felt old about it hahahaha....o well! Her christening was very memorable, the priest was so tense and kind of "out of it" with litlebit of alzheimer so the ceromony was repeated two times! and we said the same prayer 3 times in a row! I had to try to behave myself not to laugh out loud up at the altar but the hole church was! but at last she got her name and we will never forget this day.

Well Kristofer still likes his sister a lot and thinks she is very interested and wants to pat her head and say aaahhhhh all the time it is the cutest! Kristofer is now walking against all the furniture and is standing up almost everywere, this is such a big step and I'm so proud, all of a sudden he got so big when he starting doing this, and is not only crawling on his bum all the time. And now we are hoping that he will start walking around christmas, but kristofer is so careful that he will not do that until he is 100% save on his feet, we know he can do it already because he has been on his own for few seconds and the time he realized it he falls on his bum.....but hopefully sooner then later cause I'm getting kind of tired carrying the both of them all over the place.

He has also gotten very interested in the TV and is standing almost IN the TV and pointing at it, not so popular with the parents!

Kristófer watching TV

Kristofer is doing so well at his kindergarten he just started Early Behavioral Intervention that is usually used on children with autism but is working so well, he is only the second baby with Down syndrome here in Iceland that get this training and we are so happy with the outcome so far, the other boy that had it at his kindergarten stopped using a diaper at age of 3!! and he knows all the letters in the alphabet and a hole lot more. Kristofer is doing very well and is starting to say so many words and I think he knows around 30 signs. He is already making his number 2 in his potty almost every night so we se what will be.

Well it´s been a while since I wrote something on here last time so I wanted to write few lines about what has been happening over here in Iceland.

Here are some pictures of my beautiful angels :)

It´s starting to get cold over here in Iceland.....Im so not ready for it! but I look forward to christmas !!!

Kristofer is a big brother now !!

I know it has been a while since I wrote something on here, but having two babys staying at home can be tough and some things you are going to do during the day...well you just cant get over everything.

Well on June 19th a litle perfect girl was born at Reykavík´s hostpital, she was 8.4 lbs and 20.9 inch long.
The delivery only took about 4 hours something else then last time that was over 24 hours, and it felt good that we could just go home the day after and not have to stay at the NICU. We are so happy and we cant belive that we have two babys now, because two years ago we had none.

Kirstófer is so happy with his little sister and wants to kiss her and hug her all the time (sometimes little to much) hahahaha but at last he is very nice to her and thinks she is a very exciting new member of our family.

Here are some picturse of the two of them

Well now I'm almost 31 weeks in my pregnancy, time flies!! But the other day we went to 3D ultrasound to see the Little baby girl and it was amazing. I just wanted to share one picture with you guys, we saw her open her eyes and smile!

And Kristofers kindergarten teacher Greta she is always taking pictures of Kristófer doing all kind of stuff with the other kids, so here are few new pictures!! Kristófer just started to sign few signs and we are so happy with that!! His favorite is ball, duck and teddy bear and he even says the words with the signs like ba when he signs ball! and he knows how to say mom and dad and makes car sounds :)

He could sit here for hours driving the car and making car sounds!

Little messy here

Playing with the ball is favorite!

1 year old Kristofer

Hi everyone,

What a great day today. Our baby boy just turned 1 years old, time really flies, its hard to beleave a year has passed this quickly.

We started the day @ 9.30 in our regular Saturday baby swimming class and this litle guy is improving every week. For example, we have these litle plastic rings that he holds on the bottom and I hold at the top. Few weeks ago he only held for a few seconds on is own, but today i put him on the pool bank and made him grap the rings and he just jumped right in the pool while holding the rings and held on for approx 3-4 minutes. Kristofers physiotherapist tells us that his weekness is in his hand strength but his legs are very strong and have been since he was born, importantly the hand strenth is radically improving these days.

After swimming, we went home and helped mom to get ready for the first birthdayparty, ate and slept for about 3 hours ,the swimming really drains the batteries, just tells me that its utilizing every muscle in his body, he never sleeps as good as after baby swimming J

The party was great, alot of relatives and friends came over to celebrate our litle guy´s birthday. He was happy and smiling the whole time and got a pile og gifts.

Recently for the last month or so, we ´ve really been foucsing more on his training and it is really paying off. He can stand while hold/leaning forvever now and is able to push him self up to a crawling position, but needs a litle more hip strength to hold it on a slippery base. His focus is getting alot better and he is starting to be aware of many thins happinig around him. We can now show him a car and he makes an engine sound with his lips, he can do the sign for falling, ball and says mamamama...dont know if thats just something but its really cute. He drinks juice with a straw and picks up cheerios with thumb and index finger. Two teeths are up so this is all heading in the right direction :D

Last but not least he is becoming a big brother. Thelma is due on the 18th of june.

Thats it for now.

Here are some pictures
