Notes from a Swedish stylist

One Year as a Parent

I really don’t know where to start… The days are flying past me and it feels like it was yesterday that we first brought him home. At this point, he is eating with a fork, and he takes my hand to pull me along when he wants to show me something. There are already a few names and words that he likes to repeat. His favorite thing at the moment is to whisper ”quiet” as he puts his finger over his mouth. Another thing I really love is this new tender side he’s showing. I now get so many kisses and cuddles, and it warms my heart like nothing else. He’s changing everyday and loves to explore everything around him.

How I have changed in this past year? This is really just a guess, since it’s too close in time still to see things clearly, but I think that I’ve become more at ease with things that I cannot control. I also feel like multitasking has a whole new meaning. At the same time as I feel that I’ve settled into this new role as a mother, I also feel that my worries have completely changed direction. Dylan is so active and curious—a side I love about him—but will others see him this way? Will he get to be this ball of energy, or will life beat it out of him to make him fit the norm? These are the kinds of questions that occupy my mind at the moment, but not in a stressful way, I just think it’s good be on ones toes. Other that that, I feel pretty much the same as I ever did, strange ha?
