(I wrote this post on 16th November.)
Not that I have ever been called in for questioning at a police station, but it does look like I’ve been up to something.
I was not going to wash it, but I thought I should make the effort. My hair looked quite good at 2am, but I brushed it when I got up and it looked bad.
Not that I usually care about my hair, but I thought I better make the effort for an online talk. (There were 50ish people in the end – thanks University of Hertfordshire.)
I spent about 6 hours away from her in the end.
It was like a flashback to my pre-baby life.
I do appreciate her, but it is a full-on job.
5+ months of mothering and we’ve only been to one baby class in real life, and haven’t had many chances to hang out with friends lately.
I am lucky to have Tiago, and for my Nan to provide an extra pair of eyes now. We’re very fortunate and I really need to get over myself and whine less.
I was just going to post it on my Instagram stories, but I saw the ‘potential’ of it.
Did I ever think that I’d be including a photo of my computer screen in a project? No. To be fair I probably have done it before in other projects that aren’t shown or it may have been edited out of one series.
Yeah, I thought it was probably time to do another family shoot.
I feel like weekends are my best time to get things done, but Tiago is always tired and at the moment we are trying to organise our stuff. I’ll just have to do it this week…
I felt bad that I only did one shoot last week, but I did spend a lot of time preparing my presentation – cutting out some projects and adding in newer stuff.
It’s an absolute gamechanger. I wasn’t going to bother for a month or so (we’re not sure for how long we will formula feed her), but after talking to a friend I was swayed.
It’s always a faff when an alarm doesn’t get set and you have a very upset baby to deal with…
She is supposed to nap less during the day, which means potentially less time to do things. Fun.
I am not sure why I have been so obsessed. Possibly, because we’re dealing with a second lockdown and I can’t go anywhere? True.
I was like ‘she has to be awake for 90 minutes, then 105 minutes twice, then 120 minutes. She can’t go to bed unless she has been awake for those full wake windows’. So some days her bedtime was getting a bit later.
Great. Does she wake up after a bit? Yes. Everyday is a new day though, and it means we have a bit more time in the evening to do things.
Yeah, things get a bit messed up by the evening. I am learning to be flexible though…
This is about the last two nights. I just hoped that she would go back to sleep both times as she wasn’t being too loud.
Sometimes I think she just needs her nappy changed, but then she gets rowdy.
Last night I got away with breastfeeding her, but the night before we had to give her some formula as she would not breastfeed.
Whoops. It was Sunday. I need to chill more…
And then I wished that I had not set one incase she slept longer.
After being reunited with B I did feel knackered after 5 minutes.
It is good for me and good for her.
Kudos to women who can just be with their kid for 24/7.
You can imagine it, but it’s hard to actually imagine it.
I did do a baby yoga class today this morning actually, but it’s not the same as just doing a video by myself.
I’m going to go stretch now…
