We did the shoot before her first nap.
I was a bit nervous about how it would go, which was why I was keen to do it asap today.
She found it hilarious. There is a series of her laughing her head off at me.
She was grumpy in the beginning, but then she got into it – especially when she could see the photos of herself and steal my remote.
Now I can not look away as you never know what daredevil stunt she will be doing next.
The zebra is quite tall, but she stands up quite slowly and steadily. She does fall off from time to time though.
She was standing on the car in the kitchen and fell off a couple of times. That one does move as it has wheels. The zebra does rotate though.
I am quite impressed considering how often she falls over and I thought for a while that her balance was terrible, so it has improved quickly.
For a while she just sat playing with stones, she was super intrigued by their cat, and a bit freaked out by their turkeys.
It will be our first over night stay away from B as a couple. Weird. It is nice to think of grand schemes to get up to, but yeah we just want to sleep, watch some crap TV, eat some nice food and swim. I need to get a new swimming costume as the one I wore in summer was tight then.
I was just looking for places with a pool and my geography is obviously really terrible. I feel so tired writing this. I think the reviews said the beds are comfy.
She does not cry much usually, but she was crying quite heavily. We were quite concerned.
Maybe it was affecting her ears as well? At first I thought it was an ear infection.
We were conflicted over her sleep training, and naturally reacting to how we saw her. Tiago did cuddle her a lot the first time round until she calmed down, but she was still upset.
So after a while he went in again and as she was still crying I also went in. We laid in her cot with her and before long she was clapping and laughing, so I read her bedtime story and sang Twinkle Twinkle to her to let her know it was bedtime, then she settled. Phew.
I planned to give it to her, but forgot. We usually don’t use the syringe that comes with it, so I have to use that now and realised that we haven’t been giving her the full dose that she is allowed so hopefully by doing that she will be in less pain now.
Hurrah. I have been tired, but I think that is a normal pregnancy symptom…
Typical. It would have been easier. Oh well.
I was reading about how I need to support my whole body more, so I thought we better find it. It was vacuum packed in the garage.
Often I wake up on my back and know I shouldn’t be on my back, but just kind of end up staying there. Whoops.
Definitely less space for food these days.
I’m going to finish reading Dave Grohl’s book then I’ll start reading my hypnobirthing books.
With B we didn’t have that many thinking sessions about them. We had one early on and then left it for ages. It seems to be our approach this time around too…
She does babble quite a lot now so I was wondering what she would say.
I say ‘most likely’ as I am still quite anxious about things.
I might need to recruit Tiago, or I imagine B might be stood at my feet just pulling on my top. I will have probably mastered how to hold both of them, but who knows.
I thought about it again this morning.
Not too shabby.
Less reading, less working, more just resting when I can and looking after my kids. It’s weird to say kids.
Tiago thought about ordering from somewhere more fancy, but I like our local place. I know what we like. We ordered a couple of different things for once too and they were good.
If I want something I usually get it for myself.
Covid, B and life have just stopped me having one. I definitely want a proper one after Baby X is born. I haven’t had many in my life, but I know it will be good for my body, and me.
24 weeks pregnant with B comparison:
I am currently (31st October) sat in one of my tight tops. I feel less awkward as no one really sees me these days. I have breathed in a few times in the mirror to see if it makes a difference, but at this point it does not.
I can’t believe that Covid is still a thing and cases are going up… At least we have vaccines now. I have been less scared now that I am double vaccinated, and I feel better for having the flu jab as well.
I have been stretching more this time, so I think that is helping a lot.
