Metin Leander writes his own story -1 Year Young

Amazing how times runs fast for Grand Parents – while Mothers who breastfeed, in one way should wish the time went slower, between the feedings. On the other hand: Every second hour 24/7 for a year, well…… I need food
And my Father is working  several miles from me. But that will change this Week.
Strong Birth Day wishes.
Grand Parents and Friends have options to see me whenever

Metin Leander with Blue Baloon 
When 1 year I went 6 steps. Then asked for a driver… or a blue balloon. Find out at Ingelin’s Facebook.
Here follows some scenes from my life so far.
13 Days before Birth 
Here just before the rest of the Family first time did see me. They celebrated my Mothers  Fathers Mothers 90 years BD, October 2009. But I in a way was very visible.
Some scenes from my first winter in Oslo
New Winter Sweater
With my Mother and a new sweater, knitted by Anna.
With Uncle etc around X-Mas
With Uncle  Niklas and Auntie Maria. Mommy just watched with care and joy.
Very young in Oslo 
Safe in chaisselonge with baba and anneanne (Papa and Grandma)He likes Silver Cups
I love allready Silver Cups. Next is going for Gold. I will.
90 years and 13 days in age difference 
90 years and 13 days in age difference. X-Mas 2009. Parts of mama to the left and grandma to the right. That was fun.
With babababa first time 
Babababa did see me, his first Grandson first time in Oslo, Norway. It seems he was very proud.
Hi you grandma 
Grandma? (babaanne - was Grandpa in Oslo able to translate correctly or should I give him a Lesson he will never forget?)) Is it right that have you coming all the way up to Norway – I think we will be good Friends.
(haha – my parents did met in Hong Kong etc – that’s a longer Flight that the short one you did have..)
Restaurant - first time - Ekeberg
OK,  I invite you all to a Restaurant in Oslo with a View.  But look out only when I’m asleep! I will learn to know you all. And need full attention.

Tor, you are such a proud grandpa and Metin Leander is such a fine young man. He is a blessing to you and your whole family. It's such a coincidence that Metin and my Ian share the same birthday!

Big hugs to you. Hope to see you and Anna next summer when you're in the USA.
