She’s had most of them since she was born, so it’s nice to see her enjoying them more each day.
Partners in crime. I realised it was still in our room when she went to bed, but she didn’t miss it.
I’d line them up all around my bed and I used to draw family trees and write biographies for them all. I was a cool kid.
Her crawling into her cot now is great, though sometimes she crawls in before we’ve done the rest of her bedtime routine or without her sleeping bag on.
I started off singing it properly and then will sing something along the lines of:
‘Twinkle twinkle little star, you’re our bunny yes you are, we love you so very much, hope you always stay in touch…’
‘Here’s your squirrel, here’s your bee, here’s your carrot, it’s clear to see…’
We give her fruit for dessert with most meals. I’m not sure if she’s hungry or just doing it for fun. Obviously if we see her doing it we’ll move the bowl away, but she would happily sink her teeth into everything if she could. Earlier she had my dress in her mouth…
They’re ones for kids. Chickpea, quinoa, tomato and something? She does like crisps in general though. If we are eating crisps we have to give her a bit of one or she gets upset.
It depends on the weather, how I’m feeling, how much energy I have etc.

I wear so much blue, I just knew that was why she was getting confused.
I feel sad as they are missing out on a lot if they feel like they can’t wear/own things of a certain colour.
I thought he knew she was a girl, but maybe he forgot/always sees her wandering around in blue and thought he must be wrong? I don’t know.
Just thinking about it all makes me feel tired.
Some parents dress their kids quite gender neutral and some kids have gender neutral names. Even if I think a child is a certain gender, I try not to assume as sometimes I am wrong. Some parents put their daughter’s hair in girlish styles or put head bands on them, so obviously then it is easier to assume.
It’s nice to see her progessing with her walking.
Walk through the leaves. Back to the leaves. Sit down and play with the leaves.
I was a bit proud.
The teacher will often end up giving her an instrument, then I wait to see if she will put it back. Then I’ll put it back, then she’ll go up to the basket.
Like I’ve said before – if she’s happy, I’m happy.
A Grandmother said to me ‘think we’re in the slow corner’, but her Grandson and B are quite a bit younger than the others. The others are jumping and talking, so there is a bit of an age gap…
I am struggling to write this as I am so tired. I planned to do it this morning, but I just lay in bed and rested. B will have a nap shortly, so I will nap too – she is currently with Tiago.
Maybe they booked into too many people for booster shots?
I didn’t want to take one close to the ‘vaccine zone’, but eventually one came up right in the back corner. Perfect.
I had stood up for about 5/10 minutes before I got the chair. I think I waited about 40 minutes in the end before my number was called.
The first time was in a health centre, but this was in a tent. It’s fine, but it was weird knowing some people could see me – including a very vocal guy who acted like he was the only one who had to wait.
I have already really forgotten how it was to be pregnant with B. I will be glad to not go through it again as it is quite nerve-wracking.
It’s just weird feeling something moving inside of you. It is cool, but sometimes it is just really odd.
Only time will tell. It’d be nice if they looked quite alike I think, but if one looks more like me and more like T then that is also cool. But I don’t really mind.
It was great when B had 5 naps a day. This time it does not matter so much as B will probably only be having 1 by the time baby X is born. I just need to do my best and rest when I can.
21 weeks pregnant with B comparison:
This time my results came within a week.
Like I’ve said 100 times before, I don’t think pregnancy will ever stop not being weird to me.
I will also never stop not liking the fact that I have little control over pregnancy. It is stressful.
This time I did make work about wanting to be pregnant again, though I do feel awkward about it. I know that a lot of people have struggles with fertility or trying to get pregnant or getting through a pregnancy, and at times I do wonder why has it been quite straight forward for us as a family? I do feel guilty about it at times.
Well it hasn’t been a couple of years yet and B likes to eat everything that I have.
I definitely get stressed when I can’t feel many movements. Sometimes I am just busier though so have less opportunities to feel her.
As my bump gets bigger this time it is weird thinking that I probably will not ever be pregnant again, but being pregnant with a toddler is quite different to being pregnant without another kid. As B wants picking up a lot/needs to be as otherwise we will never get home from walks, having a bump does make it harder to pick her up/I get worried that maybe I am overstretching my bump.
