I had to be brave to check when my last post was – it’s been nearly a month! I’m going to be yawnsome and blame it on work, but here are a few choice morsels from chez Campbell since we last spoke:
1. Alien Skeleton Baby
It has been confirmed – we are officially giving birth to an alien skeleton baby. See alien skeleton baby face the camera and wave!
2. Flutterbye baby
On Monday night, I had the weirdest feeling in my lower abdomen. It felt like when you hold a baby rabbit and the heartbeat is so quick, you can barely count the separate beats. If I have read all the baby blogs/books/websites correctly, this is the baby moving! I can’t describe how exciting this is – a little lonely as Patrick can’t feel anything from the outside, but very cool nonetheless.
3. I’m officially quitting online parenting discussions
I’m keen to be the best Mum I can be, but I’m just not sure I can measure up. I plan to have baby in a hospital (with a rather snazzy birthing centre!); I’d rather wear a wrap or something while breastfeeding because I don’t think everyone needs to see my bosoms; and I think star charts are frickin’ awesome! These things are just not cool, apparently. My mind is taken back to the world of mason jars and stucco-ed invitations…
4. Coming soon…
No, that’s it. When they say “coming soon” on tv, I get really miffed. I want to know when it will be on so I can set Sky + to record!
5. Disneyland Paris
We spent the day there on Friday. When I say “day”, I mean a grand total of four hours, in two theme parks. I am pining for Florida with every cell in my body! I do, however, have some pictures and a slightly more detailed review, which will be “coming soon”. See what I did there? After the honeymoon updates…
