Notes from a Swedish stylist

After twelve hours of horrible pain and laughter, Dylan entered this world!

Where should I start? It’s almost a month since Dylan came into this world. The water brook the 2nd of July just as André came home from work. The whole thing felt like a movie so for a few minutes I just could not stop laughing. Twelve hours of the worst pain I’ve ever felt and (believe it or not some more laughter) out came a 4,2 kilo boy with loads of brown hair and big eyes. The midwife told me the day after that during the last hour she caught me smiling in between the push pains. And I remember that the sun was rising on a bright blue sky as he came.

His full name is Dylan Ellis Stellan Elwin Melin. In Sweden we have a saying that a loved child has many names. Dylan is a name from Wales and means son of the sea/wave, which we thought was a perfect name for a surf baby! Theses first weeks have been all about breastfeeding and getting to know this little person. Some days are easy and some days are pretty hard. But a smile from Dylan takes me to the moon and back.


Jessika: Grattis till mästerverket! Hoppas att ni alla mår bra trots kaoset och chocken och kärleksöverflödet. Och kom ihåg, det kommer bara att bli lättare!

Jenny: Precis som karaktären och surfaren Dylan i gamla Beverly Hills 90210 :) Älskar namnet Dylan! Bestämmer vi oss för att någon gång skaffa barn kommer barnet också att ha med det namnet bland sina namn :)
