Well, yesterday she did bump her head and had a bit of a swollen eyebrow, but it went down pretty quick.
It seemed like a nice spot by the door, though some have been flattened from her daily newspaper falling on them.
It hurt, but I did not think it would bruise as much as it has. It has probably faded a bit now. I am writing all this with the intention of doing a shoot later of my knee. Not the most interesting perhaps, but I know I have done at least one other post about injuries.
(21st May: My Nan ended up binning them yesterday. She said it had been a total waste of time – and a waste of my ‘injury’. Oh well.)
I hope next week is as good, and we’re only on Wednesday.
This was at the weekend, but it gives me hope for the future. If she can eat lunch when we’re out then we can stay out longer/go further which is good. I am trying to build my confidence up with these things as we’ve had little practice.
It feels like a huge step, after feeding B in her high chair in the kitchen for months. T was helping me, so we will have to see how it goes when I’m by myself. I will probably just put her in her pushchair if she is moving about too much.
It is someone that I have been messaging since before Xmas, but we were yet to meetup.
People who are like ‘I know we hung out today but do you want to hang out again this week?’ It feels like dating with how keen or not keen you are supposed to be.
I did plan to have a nap, but I had so much stuff to do.
She was moving around a bit, but not as much as last week. I also just let her be a bit more free – seeing how far she was planning to crawl before I went to retrieve her.
It is so nice to see other people in a room enjoying simple things like rolling beach balls to each other (with sanitised hands of course).
Playdate after class? Yes please. It meant I had to push B’s nap back a bit, but she then had a short nap on the way home. Yes she did have a later bedtime, but we were flexible and it was fine! Small steps.
I tried to jog there and back, but I had to stop a few times. If I keep going then I am hoping to build up to not stopping.
I spoke to the woman next to me and it felt easy to chat.
A bit of both perhaps.
And it also makes me feel like a better parent which is nice.
Definitely need to make more plans for next week, though I think I do not need something for everyday as maybe it will be nice to just have a chill day where we do not have to plan ahead too much.
This is what I have wanted for monthsss.
She looks so different. I’m like ‘is this my child?’
One night it felt too cold for a short sleeve vest, but a sleepsuit was perhaps too much, but we put her in the suit. Yesterday my Mum got some long sleeved vests and we put her in one of those, but Tiago said her legs were cold this morning.
Two nights ago she was making a lot of noise. Last night we had to go in at midnight and 5am. Tonight will be cooler so I think we can get away with a sleepsuit. I have never kept track of the weather and temperature so much in my life…
But that would be too easy.
Her suction cup bowl does not suction well to her tray, so I just scatter it on her tray. Yesterday she was quite happy just picking at bits and she seemed to eat well. I have tried to eat my lunch in front of her, but she’ll just want what I have. I had to share my melon yesterday.
Sometimes I open it just to test her…
It’s all been fine until she bumped her head on the corner last week…
It was really cool. We were just sat on the grass and he came by which was sweet.
His Dad was watching but was chill about the whole thing. He was like ‘we’ll fix it when we get home’. B tried to reach for the bat again and the kid pulled it away, which is fair.
It’s been my terrible joke of the week that relates to Ozzy Osbourne (born in Birmingham) biting the head off of a bat. I thought that didn’t actually happen, but apparently it did. Not great.
I’m off to wake B up now, and hopefully I’ll do a shoot when she naps later.
(21st May: The shoot wasn’t that great, but it is what it is – a picture of my bruised knee.)
