Let’s just say that it has been a very intense week! And this late post clearly proves it.
Olivia: she keeps surprising me every single day! on Wednesday morning she told me that her dummy was broken and she was going to throw it away. I replied saying that we didn’t have a new one to replace it and that if she was going to get rid of it that would have been the end of it, no more dummy! she went ahead anyway and her dummy ended up straight into the bathroom’s bin. And that really was the end of it! she only asked for it a couple of times, and we simply reminded her what she has done and she was perfectly fine with our answer. I still am in disbelief, if I think about all the worries and attempts trying to get rid of the dummy. She thought me a very valuable lesson, that there is a time for things to happen naturally, without trauma and stress free. Children are ready when they are ready, I just need to trust my little girl a little bit more. On the other end, she’s outgrowing her afternoon nap, and we are truly exhausted!
Baby boy: there’s been a lot of movement with week, clearly visible from the outside, too! I’m just hoping it’s not just a taste of what is going to be like, otherwise we’ll be in trouble. This week this baby boy should be about 36cm long and weight about 750g…I guess all the weight I’m putting on it’s not just because I’m eating without control!
