Yesterday we introduced Sammy (and Emma) one of our favorite places in Bucharest, The Village Museum.  This open air museum it’s truly one of the pretties places you can visit if you come to Bucharest, specially when the weather is nice. We take all our friends here and everybody loves it.  It features original and traditional Romanian houses, windmills, watermills, churches and authentic elements of rural life from Transylvania, Oltenia, Dobrogea and Moldavia. You can read more about it here.

It was a beautiful autumn day to walk around and Sammy just LOVED exploring, discovering new houses and knocking on doors, petting cats and collecting acorns.  Emma enjoyed or trip as well and loved looking around from daddy or mommy’s arms.

The museum is located close to the Herastrau Park and Lake. I shared a few pictures of the park last year over here.  If you would like to see a few more snippets of Bucharest click HERE.

MORNINGS..

I apologize for the silence, life has been quite busy around here.  Among many things, our little baby girl just got over an infection and a little cold and I had my eyes on her non-stop while a few weeks ago I started preschool at home with Sammy.  My work didn’t get much attention this month, but since autumn is here I feel like we are slowly starting to get into some kind of routine.

Our mornings are some of the sweetest even if I still wake up once or twice in the night for Emma’s feedings. Regardless the tiredness (which I got used to pretty much..) the little happy, rested faces of these two are making things sweeter, and if daddy is home, it’s even better.  Morning snuggles are just the best to start the day with!

After breakfast we usually start preschool activities: practicing/writing the letters (we are on letter C this week), counting, colors, shapes, reading together or drawing/painting while listening to music.  Most of these things we were doing before, but I am trying to be a little more organized so that I can have more flexibility as far as time also. Sammy is having fun and as long as I can keep his attention, things are going well.  Some days are better than others, but we are slowly learning together what works best for each day/week.

“Good morning baby Emma!!” is one of the first things that I hear when Sammy gets in our room early in the morning.  If she is awake, she is giving him the sweetest smiles.  Needless to say, I love starting our mornings like this…

Sammy: Running around the park with his red balloon at a friend’s birthday party. He had so much fun and slept like a baby that night.

Emma: She loves being in someone’s arms, especially in daddy’s.  This is her new favorite position, as she likes to look around and discover new things.

Sammy: A couple of weeks ago he was gone with his daddy in a work trip/camp.  It was the first time that he was away from me for a whole week, but him and his dad had some fun, quality time together.  This picture was taken by one of our friends (Loredana Trăistaru) and when I first saw it it gave me goose bumps – for a glimpse he looked like a teenager!

Emma: Our sweet baby fought a little infection in the past weeks. She is still on treatment, but is doing well. She is a happy little girl otherwise and she likes to make the cutest faces and sounds.
