I am enjoying the longer days and being on maternity leave, trying to take in every moment of the time we have now together.

Hverfisbarinn – Grand Opening

Finally a new hot place to hang and have a drink or why not test 14 different types of bear with a German pretzel on the side?

Tonight (1.mars) from 20:00 – 01:00 is the Grand opening of Hverfisbarinn !

Hverfisbarinn has the perfect balanced atmosphere and bar menu for sophisticated drinking with friends, this will defiantly be my new Hot Spot !

Life with twins

KidsLife

I haven’t had much time to update you guys on our new arrivals and new life.

Today our boys Elvar & Viðar are 3weeks old and time is just flying by. Getting twins is more wonderful than I could ever imagine, it is amazing to have two little babies to cuddle and love. It really is double the happiness!  So far it hasn’t been hard at all, I am of course super lucky to have Gunnar home full time with me. But I can tell you that I haven’t really slept anything yet and I am sure it will be some more weeks before I feel well rested again. The boys drink every 2,5 to 3rd hour and in between they burp, poop and hopefully sleep some. We have had nights when they are not ‘timed together’ and that can get really tough. One wakes up and when you finally get him down and you start to think about sleep – BAM, next one’s up! This vicious cycle then repeats itself through the night.  We had to learn the hard way that they need to be timed, waking up the sleeping baby is essential when the other is wake. Big sister Þóra Lóa is a dream, I am waiting for her to react to the big change and us always having a baby in our arms but so far she is just loving the situation and loving her little brothers.

Love,

L

​Hello World 

Life

Viðar & Elvar Gunnarsson arrived 30.01.2017 – The birth only took 1,5h from first contraction until they where born 👌 Baby A (Viðar) was born 15:36, 2732g and 47cm. Baby B (Elvar) was born 15:49, 2968g and 47cm. 

Both boys are doing well and are already emptying their mom on milk 🐮

Life

Never during this whole pregnancy did I think we would get this far, tomorrow is our last day.. Now I am so far gone that we have a time to get “started” – Tomorrow morning at 08.00 🙉 

I have been 4cm dilated the whole weekend and nothing is happening so tomorrow they are being kicked out – literally. I am mentally preparing myself, trying to stay strong for myself and our boys. This is happening and we are now settled for a natural birth, some way they are coming out and I am going to be the best and strongest me that I can be tomorrow. I have prepared our home, all laundry is done and everything is neat and clean. This is a way for me to mentally prepare myself for tomorrow, I also took a long shower and tried to go over how I see the birth and try to visualize how I want it to go. I know there will be between six to eight people in the birth room when it is a twin birth and I will be highly monitored during the whole delivery, so I know I am in good hands and they will do what is best for me and the boys. 

Now I it is time for me to get some rest and try to not think at all – Tomorrow will change our life’s forever 💕
