Hello, it’s 21st November. I’m going to quickly try to write this blog post while T and B are having a nap…
I did plan to do it last weekend, but it never happened.
I got a bit stressed today thinking it would not happen again, but we did it, and Tiago said it was nice to just take pictures and not think about much else.
(Though in Liverpool often the pictures were quite blue due to the UV covering we had on the windows – now they seem quite red.)
They were lying on the bed originally, but the light was fading so I thought we should stand against the wall in my ‘studio’. This seemed nicer though.

An exciting story.
Well her naps have been all over the place. The app I use to keep track of things thinks she is still on 5 naps a day, but I was confused the other day as I do not remember dropping it to 4. I guess it just happened though when I moved her to the 1 hour 30, 1.45 x 2, 2 x 2 (wake window) schedule.
Now it is more 2 hours, then 3 x 2.5ish.
It’s hard to tell why…
I say imitating as she was not actually giving me a kiss – more just putting her face against mine with her mouth open.

I said we were going to start at 6 months, but I think it would not hurt to try a bit earlier. However, I think we need to be completely relaxed when we do otherwise I think it will not be such a great experience for B. Perhaps next weekend?
I feel like I should not talk about certain things, so I’ll leave it at that.
(4th December – Things are fine now.)
I usually drink from a water bottle instead of a glass as I get worried that it will get knocked over, so B was trying to grab it with her mouth wide open. I went to give her some, but I thought that maybe it wasn’t that safe. So now she has a sippy cup.
I think she is actually just teething on it more than anything else.
I imagine us sitting on a bench with her staring up at the trees. Maybe then some people might talk to us? I sound desperate to talk to people… My sister is sending her a pram suit, so once we get that then maybe I can try her on the local swings too.
I guess now isn’t the time to be sitting on benches and discovering playgrounds, but we can try. There are always some nicer days…
I just lay in bed intending to have a nap, but felt like I needed to find a group. At the moment I like the idea of classes or a group, but I like the idea of going somewhere and just talking and chilling a bit.
I was hoping she would sleep for an hour, but she had half an hour.
I think I just realise how lucky we are, so I shouldn’t be so darn negative all the time. It’s boring to whine so much.
I used to write to do lists, but I haven’t lately. Now that I have a desk to work at and I’ve found a notepad and pen I guess it is easier to start again.
It is more than I thought I would have really, so that is good. My one concern about moving was where would I make work.
That would be nice. I’ve only seen family since moving, which is lovely of course, but it’ll be great to see other people too.
Fingers crossed. Hopefully I will be inserting a video below of new ones…
(4th December – I’ve managed to make 5 videos over 2 sessions so far. That’s better than nothing!
