You know the voice. The one you talk to babies and animals with…

#ItFeelsABitAwkwardTalkingToBWhenWeAreOutAndAboutAlone
#TalkingToABabyWhoEveryoneCanSeeWillNotTalkBack
#ButSheWontBeTalkingBackForAWhileSoINeedToGetUsedToIt

I said that, but she actually is quite talkative in her own way. I made a video of her trying to sing yesterday, which is quite cute. She won’t be ‘talking talking’ for a long while, but she is already definitely trying.

#AtHomeIJustPullSillyFacesAndMakeUpSongsALot

I’ve posted a couple of songs (Milky Milky Moos and You’re My Baby) to my Instagram account. I should probably do another one soon…

#SheSmilesMoreNowWhichIsSuperNiceThoughItStillSeemsAtRandomTimesAndNotAtAnythingInParticular

She definitely smiles with a purpose now, which is really nice. She seems to smile more in the mornings, but maybe we are just imagining it.

#SheHadACheckUpAtTheDoctorsToday
#IWasNervousAboutGoingButWeWereTheOnlyOnesInTheWaitingRoom

It makes sense that places lock their doors to stop random people walking in, but I was awkwardly stood outside pressing a doorbell wondering if I had to call a number instead. Someone came to the door after a little while.

#TheDoctorWasNiceAndIHadSpokenToHerOnThePhoneBefore
#ItIsSoGreatJustSendingInPhotosOfTheProblemAndNotHavingToWorryAboutGoing
#IHopeTheyKeepThisServiceForever

I have mentioned this a few times already, but I really hope they do keep it. It’s super convenient and saves so much time.

#ThatWasBecauseOfAReferralAfterBirthAsSheWasBornBreechAndIThinkAllBreechBabiesHaveThatCheck
#SheSaidToPutTwoNappiesOnBForNowAsTheyMightRecommendItAtTheAppointment

Perhaps I should be more concerned about all of this, but I don’t see the point in getting stressed about it yet. I originally thought the appointment was the week after, but that was actually for her positional talipes (more commonly known as clubfoot – all was fine and she doesn’t need to be seen about it again). Hopefully because she will have been wearing double nappies for a few weeks by the time of her appointment it may have made a difference. I’m not entirely sure what it does, but looking online it might help the hip socket heal/put the hip back in the socket properly?

It’s quite funny seeing strangers interact with B, but it’s cute. It’s nice for her to get used to being around new people in a time when it is all a bit awkward.

#AtTheDoctorsBWouldNotHaveSeenUsDoingTheWideMouthKindOfLookThoughAsWeWereWearingMasks

I love when I smile at someone and then remember I’m wearing a mask, so they probably can’t tell. I wondered if the masks scare B, but they don’t seem to bother her. I guess she’s too young to care.

#TheDoctorSaidThatBIsTheMostAlert8WeekOldSheHasEverSeenButIAmSureSheSaysThatAboutAllTheBabies

Maybe, maybe not. I sometimes forget how young she is as she does seem older, but then again I don’t have much knowledge about young babies. I like that she spends a good amount of time awake and just chilling/daydreaming.

#AfterwardsIBreastfedHerForTheFirstTimeInPublic

I was going to include it in this post, but I’ll save that fun for the next one.

#WeGotAPrescriptionForBabyParacetamolToGiveHerBeforeHerJabsTomorrow

Tiago was coming to meet us so he went and got the prescription. I still hadn’t been in a shop since March at this point.

They said to give her some before the appointment and then 4-6 hours afterwards.

#BSleptThroughItLikeSheDidLastNight

We went somewhere that had an outdoor area that was sheltered. It seems like some tables are quite close to others, but so far we have been quite lucky and sat a bit more to ourselves.

With her being asleep though I start to get a bit stressed towards the end as what if she wakes up just as we are about to leave? If she wakes up at the beginning or in the middle-ish it wouldn’t be so bad. We’ll deal with it when we get there though.

#IAmSureSheWillBeAwakeNextTimeButINeedToBuildUpMyConfidenceWithFeedingHerInPublic

Oh yeah she was, but it was fine and our confidence definitely got built a bit. She was awake for most of it and the service was slow, which was great as I gave us plenty of time to deal with her needs.

#SoIKeptMySunglassesOnMyHeadAsIWasStillWearingThemFromOurTripOutWhilstSettingUp

I originally chose a photo where my hair was quite tidy, but T and my younger sister both preferred this one. I then realised that this is a more accurate depiction of how I generally look – my hair is usually in a mess and rarely washed. Today I washed my hair and it was starting to matt underneath, so it looks like I will be brushing it more from now on…
