It’s been such a warm day today that I’ve been walking around with just a summer dress on – which doesn’t happen often I can assure you! And it looks like tomorrow will be just as nice – perfect for Father’s Day.
I’m 20 weeks already, which means I’m halfway there and that it’s about time to write about the first trimester before I forget everything! I have to say this pregnancy has gone so much quicker, just as everyone says. We’re having another girl, in case anyone’s missed it 🙂
…another girl!! I had my second scan today and we were so happy and relieved to be told that the baby looks perfectly well in every way and is growing as she should. And there was no way we weren’t going to find out the sex! We got such a good view that we could tell ourselves that it was a girl even before the radiologist told us 🙂
Some of you might have noticed that my blog has been dead for over two months…Some of you might have stayed awake at night wondering what’s going on. Well no need to wonder anymore as I have finally decided that it’s time to reveal the reason for my absence: I’m pregnant!
It hit me today that I’m raising a little woman – or judging by these photos I snapped secretly today (yup, she was so into her performance that she didn’t even notice me) we might have a little princess on our hands. I mean seriously, Lana just turned two and she’s already into Frozen and trying to sing along to ‘Let it go’! (I’m blaming aunty JoJo who bought her an Elsa dress for her birthday haha.) But I have to say it is really damn cute when a 2 year old is copying Elsa in the Let it Go music video – my heart almost melted. So here you go, a silent performance by princess Lana!
My wee crazy-haired frog/ballerina turns two today. Two years have gone by so quickly that I’m worried I’ll wake up one day to Lana being 20 and feeling like she was two only yesterday. Lana is such an explorer that I’m also worried she’ll do what I did and end up living somewhere far away from me when she’s older…I want her to grow up but at the same time I want her to be my little baby girl and stay with me. Always!
Three weeks ago I finally decided it was time to stop breastfeeding. I never thought I would breastfeed for so long, but it became clear to me when Lana was 12 months that it was an unrealistic plan to stop then. Instead I kept going for another 9 months – and all I can say is well done me!!
Today my little frog is 1,5 year old! Somehow going from a year to a year and a half has gone a lot slower than what Lana’s first year went. Maybe because there hasn’t been huge sudden steps in terms of development, such as crawling, walking, weaning and the first words were. But I don’t mind it going slowly as I don’t really want my little girl to grow up too fast! (Although I impatiently wish she’d start talking more already!)
I realised the other day that I haven’t written a Lana-update for ages so one is definitely due. She just turned 15 months, which sometimes feels like such a lot and sometimes like so little. Sometimes I think she looks huge and sometimes she looks like a wee baby. One thing is for sure though, she’s perfect!
