When we first found out your mother was pregnant, we thought it’d be fun to do the stereotypical photo time series of your mother’s belly getting bigger. We (or I) ran out of patience because by week 16, you were still very small and your mother was barely showing. It wasn’t until week 30 or so that your mother had her first offer for a seat on public transport.
Funnily enough, your mom started her own photo time series. Everyday, around 10-11 AM, your mother would send me a picture of what she saw when she looked down. This would usually be her now growing belly and the progressively cramped quarters Kili could work with when laying on her lap.
And while we are all on the topic of Kili, here’s some more photos showing her habits now that she is in her “teenage” years. She’s pushing her boundaries and will sneak up onto our bed when we’re not paying attention.
But she still likes to be close and conduct her own activities near your mother while she’s stretching.
It’s particularly cute when Kili looks like she’s mimicking your mother.
She still loves to play and will methodically bring over every toy one at a time to see whether any particular toy will do the trick and get us to play with her.
And when we don’t, she’ll resort to rolling around on her back with a toy in her mouth so gravity can do the work.
And then she gets so tired she just wants to sleep even though it’s still only 8 PM and we have all the lights on, so she has to bury her face in her towel to get some shuteye.
