Mika has some new shoes, Converse style. We were at the playground at Vasaparken today, and he took the opportunity to train walking with his new shoes. And it went great! Above a slideshow! Afterwards, we rewarded us with the true Norrköping Spring Première – Halvars Glass! Halvars Ice Cream! Delightful, as always. A nice day out! Spring is here! Hooray!
Yesterday, Mika took his first determined strong independent steps! He has taken small cautious steps before, but this was the real thing! Captured on video, here are some still frames from that vid! You can see an Insta-edited version over at @relovetheworld! Proud parents, we are!
Today we were at Folkparken (“People’s Park”), where they at the moment take away some trees that are ill. Fascinating to see the big trucks, right Mika? Then we went to the playground part of the park, in the summerish-feeling spring. Wonderful!
After many years of serving as a chairman of our Aikido and Judo club IF Dojo Norrköping, Leif Kinnersjö (6 Dan Aikido, practising Aikido since the seventies), decided to step down and hand over the leadership.

I know you will get back this Fall (Leif was injured when he was working with some stuff, and had an operation, now in rehab), just to train with us. It has been a sheer pleasure to take part of your vast knowledge and experience of…

Today we went to a clothing and toy swap for babies and kids. We found a decent bunch of clothes for seasons to come – and a new fav toy for Mika! He has spent a great deal of time with it, already. It was a DIY piece, so it feels great. Oh my, is he focused when he is ‘in the zone’, yes! Photo by Karin.

Karin was on a roundtrip to Tyresö (Stockholm) to say hello to some kitteh at Suzanne Fors / Pinkalicious breeder. Check her Insta at @akrogirl! We spent our Saturday chilling. As seen!
