Another fun note is that we bought a new car! This is the first time we buy a new, new car and not a used one hehe.. We needed a larger one since we don't really have room for anything but the stroller in the back, and the current car sit the baby has barely fits in.. Soon we have to change his car seat to a larger one and there just was no room for it.. We got a really good deal for our current car and there was this seasonal sale that gave an additonal 4000 USD off the price.. To seal the deal they tossed in winter wheels - so we are very happy :)
The choices were between two, one being larger and the one we picked. Hubby was drooling over the one we picked, and we always go for the more sensible options instead of thinking about the fun factors so this is a first for us as a couple.. We ended up with a Toyota Avensis combi.. I can see on the toyota site that this model is not sold in the US - so here is a pic!
The pictures are from a dealers site since ours isn't ready yet.. They said it would take 2-3 weeks to get it, it's been a week since we bought the car so hopefully it will be ready soon :D - Ours is going to be black metalic with black interios (Pretty standard for this model but I thought it looked amazing)! - The other good thing about this car is that it has automatic transmission which will be much kinder for my wrists..
I don't know how it is in other places but in the nordic you can get a license driving manual (It is called stick shift, isn't it) , which means you can drive cars with both manual and automatic transmission or you can get a lincense that only allows you to drive automatic transmission - and I think I am just going to get the last one. I mean, I don't think I will ever have to drive a stick and if we someday need to use a car with a stick shift then hubby can drive.. I just don't see the point of stressing with the clutching and ect when I have the option of skipping it!
Over to something else, the baby is 5 months old today.. I can not believe that he is so big already.. I feel lucky that I can stay home with him and see how much he is changing every day.. Lately he has been turning and twisting a whole lot and today I left him playing in his baby-gym for barely 20 seconds and came back to found him like this:

First I thought about turning him back to the right position but then I decided not to since he was having so much fun! He is such a happy baby, and I really feel blessed to be his mom.. I know the pregnancy was hard and that I have been had a rough time after he was born, but I truely feel that he is worth it all.. Just a tiny little smile and my heart just melt hehe - But then again, who can resist this little cutie? :D

Anyways :) That's it for now.. I hope next time I post I have some good progress numbers to report!
