First babyccino @ Costa Coffee

There are many firsts in a baby's life. There are the major firsts like the first steps, the first words, the first spoonful's of food. The first time they give you a kiss. The first tooth.

Then there are the minor firsts. We had one of these moments of firsts this week - a first babyccino.

I've loved that word ever since I first spotted it during one of our mummy group meet-ups at our local cafe - babyccino - it just sounds so cute. Last weekend we went to the Spitalfields Market to spend some time with my dad, who was in London for business. At the end of the day we went to get a cup of coffee and for our lil one we got one of those babyccino drinks (either milk or chocolate, warm and with froth).

Oh how happy she was! She had her own cup, just like ours, all to herself. She was so smiley, happily drinking from her own adult cup, dipping her fingers and hand in the foam and offering said hand for us to lick. How generous of her... She absolutely loved it, sipping her babyccino, sitting on our laps.

There was another first this week as well, but I guess more of a major one. My baby usually calls me mama. This Friday she called me "äiti" (mother) in Finnish (my native language) for the first time. She was in her feeding chair and I was leaning towards her. She put her hand on my cheek, looked me in the eyes, and said "äiti", loud and clear and smiled. How sweet and wonderful it was, made my heart melt... And happy too that we are succeeding in raising a bilingual baby!

  1. Awww this is adorable that picture of her with her little babyccino milk moustache is to die for!!! Also congrats on the rather huge moment of your little lady using the Finnish word for Mummy that's amazing!!!

    1. I love that picture - she looks so happy and exhilarated! :) And I am so happy over her first proper Finnish word, so far it's been only English :)

  2. Oh these are such gorgeous photos and what a story they tell- just beautiful. I love how happy they both look. And having your first babychinno is definitely a milestone moment- my girls love them! x

    1. Thank you :) It was really such a fun day - and it is amazing how such a tiny little thing like having your first "coffee" can bring so much joy (both to her and her parents). We have to go back for some more!
