17th of May (and a bunad-clad baby!)

We celebrated Norway’s Constitution Day by getting dressed up, taking some photos in our backyard, napping and eating hot dogs and dessert at Carrie and Kjetil’s house, skipping every single parade. We felt super lame and un-celebratory not going to any of the parades, but the idea of missing Lily’s naps when every minute of sleep for her was so precious was too much to handle for us so this year we played the new parent card. Next year :)

 

We celebrated in our own way though. I found an adorable little bunad on sale before Lily was born in a 3-month size and hoped hoped hoped that she would fit into it on the 17th. And she totally did! The cutest little Norway baby that I ever did see!
Even thought I thought she was the absolute cutest, Lily had other opinions about having to wear so many layers. She reminded me of that little boy at the beginning of Frozen who, when his mom said he had to wear his bunad becuase it was the queen’s coronation day, said, “but that’s not MY fault!”
We managed to get a smile or two out of her though!
Our now-traditional 17th of May pavlova at the Olsen’s. (2 years in a row makes it a tradition, right?)

Gratulerer med dagen Norway!
