Happy 6th Birthday Albi!

30 April 2015

Yesterday was Albi's 6th birthday! He is my oldest baby...even if he is a dog I still consider him the first baby I ever had. Obviously Emilia is my first child and nothing compares to the love I have for her & Eduardo but Albi changed my life in so many ways! Although he has always been a daddy's boy and Jonathan is very much his #1, before I got Albi I had longed for a dog my whole life! Getting a puppy is a huge commitment and it was the first time I had to be responsible for somebody other than myself...I think having a dog (or several dogs in our case!) definitely prepares you for parenthood. It's different of course, but in a way I feel like it made the transition of becoming a mum a bit easier because I already felt like Albi, Sina & their puppies' mother if that makes sense! (I'm sure non-dog lovers will think I'm absolutely crazy but if you're a dog person you know what I mean!)

I worked out again yesterday, as I knew I wouldn't be able to make the gym today. Luckily I went at a very quiet time so I had the whole place to myself! Best time of the day...it means I even managed to take a gym selfie in some good lighting, ha ha ha!

It was another sunny day (although quite cold) so Emilia & Eduardo wore their swimsuits underneath their clothes and made some use out of their paddling pool! Needless to say it was filled with warm water...my kind of pool ;) Here they are learning to share. Emilia's dress and shoes are from H&M, Eduardo's t-shirt is from Disney World and his trousers are Zara Baby.

Hope you all had a good day! 


  1. Hi Anna. I recently sent a doll for Emilia through your PO box, and I'm just wondering if she received it? It had pink hair and her name embroidered onto it. I hope she liked it. xxx

  3. Love the puppy comment! I completely agree: we have two dogs and they are TOTALLY our children (but we don't have ACTUAL children yet, so that makes sense)! It is definitely a special bond and today is our sweet guy's 5th birthday (a Shih-Tzu named Oliver)! Happy birthday to Albi!

  4. Aw I always watch your vlogs. My Maltese Terrier passed away this weekend and my heart was shattered even though she was already 17 years old! They are such lovely little dogs and I miss her each time I see them on your vlogs.


  5. happy birthday Albi! :) I love how you're posting very often now! <3

  6. Happy Birthday Albi! Emilia's shoes are so adorable!


  7. I wish we could get a dog! You are so right they are a huge responsibility. You see so many people buying them with no regard and thought what actually they need to do when looking after them!

  8. That photo of Eduardo and Emilia is so cute! Happy Birthday to Albi too, that's gone so quick!

  9. Happy birthday little Albi! By the way I absolutely love your new rings!! They are stunning together (mine are similar...we have good taste haha). Xx

  10. I loved your blog for ages and I just recently started a one by myself so if you wouldn't mind, could you check it? Thank you xx rachelbellebeauty.blogspot.com.es

  11. I am not particularly found of large dogs, however small dogs and even medium sized dogs are great. I think it also depends on how a dog is raised. I've been trampled by friends dogs that just get too excited when new people arrive. Though other friends have awesome respectful dogs that just wag their tails. I think they are lucky to have you as their doggy mommy. (:
    Eduardo is getting so close to walking! Any day now he's just going to take off. So excited for you guys. (:

  12. Loved your post on Instagram singing happy birthday with Jonathan!


  13. You are so motivated to going to the gym, I'm just sat here looking at pictures instead haha!

  21. I am indeed a dog person and I totally agree (Crazy is a term used by people to make sense of something that they don't understand.... =P) An animal's love is like no other, unconditional as always. They are family and we see them no other way. <3 Happy Birthday Albi! <3 =)


Please be nice...the world could use some positivity! :)
