This morning she was also messing with mine as I lay down next to her, while she watched TV.
Why does B do anything and everything? I would love to know. Obviously I can ask her, but I will not get much of a response.
Perhaps, perhaps, perhaps.
I think she is just discovering about bodies and is showing some interest. It makes sense.
Yesterday I asked Tiago to pretend to be a dog for her, which soon changed into a horse and B got some rides around the living room which she loved.
B was just smiling at him and found it funny.
Well, you can talk, are in school uniform and yeah you told me you are 4.
It is getting a bit annoying as it just drains my energy. I had lots of dreams last night.
My Nan likes to polish things, and still doesn’t get that B will mess with her stuff.
There was a lot on her hands and I was worried that she would try to eat it.
More like YOUR DAUGHTER!
I just thought ‘that makes sense’ and also went back to sleep.
At least I can go back to sleep. I think I am just anticipating B waking up and am intrigued to see the time. I lift my head to look at the clock, then go back to sleep.
She woke up after 6 today. Hurrah. I think it was because her room was quite warm as sometimes I go to get her up and her hands are so cold – not today.
Originally we were going to have dinner out, but Tiago suggested having lunch out instead and I much prefer that idea. Not having to leave our room from when we check-in until we check-out sounds good to me.
I might have watched it quicker if I had not been so stressed out. It might have been over 4 nights… I don’t like to watch trailers so I was quite surprised that the storyline is what it is. I did enjoy it though.
It was a very slow and long walk before…
And the playground is way more fun than walking for ages. I think she’s also just realised that the walk is fairly boring, and maybe it is less fun now it is colder as she gets cold hands from holding onto the pushchair while she walks besides it.
Ergh. Can’t wait for the evenings to get lighter again. By the time they will be I guess baby X will be of an age where I feel less stressed about taking them both out at least.
Tiago and I feel so proud.
She probably got the runny nose from nursery anyways…
Go B! She settled in quite quick really, but I guess she has started later than a lot of kids do.
I just read a book about Britney Spears, and now I have a book to read about Karen Carpenter, and ‘Men Who Hate Women’. I do not get on with reading physical books much anymore as I much prefer to read on a screen.
Excuses. I will start soon. Promise.
Something really unimportant that has crossed my mind a few times.
If you ask Tiago where he is from I doubt he will say Liverpool, but whatever.
I’d like for them to look like sisters, but I am selfish and want one kid that looks a bit more like me.
It would be cool if they were both just a good mix of T and me, which DNA wise they are really but we will have to wait and see. Truthfully, I hope they are both more like Tiago though.
29 weeks pregnant with B comparison:
(Apparently I had a productive week back then with 4 photos, but I have put one in my previous post as they both talk about my 28 week appointment.)
I was meant to say that it has been weird this time round having strangers comment on my bump like ‘so she’s going to be a big sister then?’ When I was pregnant with B I didn’t talk to random people in the street and we rarely saw anyone that we knew.
I was thinking the other day how I am really not bothered about going to events like gigs and things. If someone offered me a ticket where I got to stand on the side of the stage or got a good seated ticket then sure, but the idea of going to something is so unappealing these days.
This time round I haven’t bought any maternity clothes and am mainly just wearing the dress I bought when I was pregnant with B, the bras from then and Uniqlo leggings as they’re so stretchy and comfortable.
We did buy some baby nappies and cotton wool as I needed to order some vitamins for B and wanted to reach the amount for free postage and packaging, so thought I might as well buy some.
We’ve been told baby X is a girl, but I am still skeptical and will probably continue to be until they are born and we will see.
If the baby had not presented in the scan then we would have probably had to wait until the birth to find out as we do not have any more scans now. We are debating having a private one but I doubt we will.
Well, the wakings are nothing new then but I think it is more B related this time than pregnancy related.
I had forgotten that Tiago used to give me back massages when I was pregnant with B – I may have to remind him. I seem to have less pain this time – I think sleeping on a better mattress may have a lot to do with it, but I do also stretch in the morning and evening and have done since finding out I was pregnant.
I really thought that I would be a 42 weeker, so I was very surprised that B came before 38 weeks. This time I plan to start going to bed early from 37 weeks, but I will probably be a 42 weeker this time.
We were due to go to 2 weddings that summer. I think the one I mentioned here has been delayed for a bit longer, but one took place this August and we did go.
Well, in the end B was so early that no one had sent me a message asking if she had arrived yet. That was good.
I feel less awkward about people asking me this time, though I still would rather be left in peace about it.
Weirdly I have got quite into nut butters again in the last week or so. I actually might go and eat some after writing this. I’ve been making B cookies which are oats, bananas and nut butters, and enjoying them a lot.
I also generally just walk the same routes now, but with B so it is more interesting and we stop and chat to a few people. I definitely feel like we are more part of the community now than when we lived in Liverpool, which is nice. Tiago is generally working so maybe he does not feel the same, but I think he likes that we know a few more people at least.
