I see Mateo

in my eyes...
When I look at Mateo, I never think he looks like me but in this picture I see him.
This picture was taken on the Bateau Mouche in Paris, a trip I took with my mom when I was seven or eight?
Look at my mom, how beautiful she is.  Great cheekbones!

going through old pictures

My brother and I.
He looks so cute and happy.

me when I was 18!

Funny, heh? I was a rocker chick!
I remember showing the hairdresser a photo of Bon Jovi and that's what she did!
(Couldn't get the picture to rotate!!)

my dad

so dark and handsome in his twenties.
What is he doing on that horse?
I'll have to ask him.

a great night

It was M's birthday last week and I organize a surprise birthday party!
And it was a surprise !
It was a hit !
The place is beautiful, the food was great and the company was so fun.
Bonus #1 : A surprise visit directly from Miami : Goldberg ! M was super happy about that!
Bonus #2 : We got to dance !My favourite song of the moment : You know you want me.  I dare you to get up and dance.
Zouzou had the great idea of taking this photo from upstairs.  Thank you!

mein bruder

c'était ta fête hier!
Je t'aime !

he prefers to eat sitting in a big chair

He nears falling all the time but it makes him feel grown up.
Here he just finished eating a BIG piece of chicken that Tetta prepared for him.
Tetta was VERY happy.

his serious look

when he is watching tv.

his favourite word

I think he says "autobus" (in the cutest way - it sounds like autobouf and autobous) about 100 times a day.  When he wakes up in the morning, that's what he says and when he wakes up from nap also.
As a joke, I said : Mateo, embrasse ton autobus.  He did right away !!!

lunch time

Mateo must have been European in another life.
When he eats breakfast, it is almost nine.
He has lunch between three and four.
And he has supper at seven.

We are thinking of changing his schedule a bit.

poupou is much better

thanks to these !
We are happy that Mat is not suffering anymore.


are for me a sign of winter. 
I love clementines but I don't like winter.
This year, and I don't know why, I'm okay with the thought of winter.
Bring on the snow!
But please don't bring the cold.

that face we love

Mat is changing so much lately:
-he speaks much more
- we know what he likes and what he doesn't
- we know which games are his favourites

I must admit : I miss the baby stage...

No time for pictures lately although my camera is always in my purse...
Going for professional pictures soon at this place.

my office in 11 pictures

conciliation famille-amis-travail

Before I had Mateo, I did not really understand women who said they did not have the time to do everything - but now I do.
I don't really see my friends anymore and I miss them.
This was this summer in New-York.
I have seen Claude and Johanne only twice since then!
Squeezing all my activities in my schedule is so hard.
Now I have time for my family and work.
And on a good week, I have the time to walk outside.
And on a very good week, I go swimming once.

I am not saying this to complain but it is funny how your life changes so much after a baby.


My brother called me Nicole for a few months because I was so skinny (but that is really over now!)
And when I saw this picture in a magazine, it made me dream.
Me and a little girl?
Let's see what happens...


I like to look at the pictures in my computer and I like this picture so much...
Elias has the best pose ever.
We'll have to do that again one day...
When you turn 40 maybe Elias ?

our new pool - yes, our pool too !

our new neighbours are arriving in April !
we are excited !
lots of fun ahead!

he couldn't stay still

this is the only shot I got.

His first Halloween costume (from Élisabeth last year!)
It was a bit too tight for him but he still liked to have it on...
We went for breakfast at Elias and Luc's.  It was delicious !
