Oh Baby!

So, Ljilja and I went this morning to go see Andrijana who came into the world healthy and happy on the 10th of August. (Oh, ok and to see her mom Olja and grandmother as well). Here in Bosnia (and I suppose this region) they have something called "babine" for 40 days after the birth. In this period the mother and the baby aren't supposed to leave the house (other than nowadays for doctor's appointments). In that time everyone comes to visit and of course brings lots of presents for the baby and the family. The mother is NOT allowed to lift a finger (including carrying the baby!) and is treated like a queen. I like this tradition!

Here is Olja and her little one:
And the proud grandmother with her little princess:
