We went to Switzerland to visit Nils’ family for the holidays. The large hoods gave Lula the perfect frame for practicing her model shots. Here you can see her working on her look, baby Blue Steel.
It was great to see family and have a bit of winter (it’s about 90 degrees with 99% humidity here in Maputo). We even found time for a few hours of skiing, which was awesome.
Lula went sledding in the Alps, which might sound exciting, but Lula was deeply nonplussed. It actually looked like a bit of a Weekend at Bernie’s situation.
What Lula clearly loved was hanging with her cousin Emilie. (When she first met Emilie Lula immediately tried to suck on her nose- Lula’s highest compliment.)
Emilie carried Lula around like a big doll, which Lula seemed to like, and sang to her in French.
True to her Swiss and French blood, Lula tried a bit of fondue and was very interested in the champagne.
Lula also loved spending time with Mamylene who always makes Lula smile
Lula also met and adored her Aunt Lysiane and Uncle Sali (who fed Lula bits of the traditional Swiss Christmas dinner: chapon, or castrated rooster. Lula apparently adores castrated rooster).
And of course, she was fascinated by her Aunt Anita.
We did learn that traveling with a baby can be *rough*. Lula didn’t love all the travel and next time we will definitely pack lighter.
