The past week was week 2 of Little O’s preschool holidays, so we’ve been out and about discovering new things to see and do in the city.
We had fun in the bath with ducks and squirty pigs and seashells, then hugs with Little O and Baby E. On Wednesday we visited the Transport Museum for the first time and Little O loved it so much that we bought an annual pass. It’s perfect for a rainy Stockholm day with train-obsessed toddlers.
The next day we took a trip to Lidingö to Millesgården, a sculpture park and art gallery that I have been wanting to visit for a long time. Unfortunately, it proved to be the most pushchair unfriendly place in Stockholm! Still, it is beautiful there, with wonderful views back across the city, and Little O loved splashing in the pool and getting soaked!
The weather held up on Friday too, so we hopped on a bus to the embassy area and then walked out, past the telecom tower, over the bridge onto Djurgården, kicked the football around a bit and then met Husband for dinner at Ulla Winbladh, a fantastic restaurant that we’ve taken Little O to once before.
On Saturday, Baby E turned six months old. I cannot quite believe that he’s this old already. The time certainly is flying by. He seems to have decided to celebrate his first half year by teething, s we’ve had some tears at bedtime, but nothing that a little Bonjela cannot solve.
And on Sunday I baked Mellow Mummy’s wholemeal pear muffins – delicious! I adapted the recipe a little, using only half the sugar in the recipe and substituting the rest with granular stevia, which I found in the supermarket. As the recipe called for soft brown sugar I was a little loath to swap all the sugar for stevia the first time, but I think they turned out pretty well using half and half.
