I was home by myself this weekend while Dave was in Hamburg on a lads holiday (cannot wait to go away with just friends after the baby is out!). It was a really relaxing weekend, but I noticed that it’s really important for me to have Dave around to talk to. Baby was a little quieter than usual between Friday and Saturday morning, and without Dave there to reason with, my thoughts very quickly went to worst case scenarios. Luckily she started moving around again so it was all good.
I also realised that I don’t speak out loud to the baby the way Dave does. I talk to her in my head, thinking that she knows what I’m saying, but clearly I need to actually say stuff out loud. Still feels a bit strange though to talk out loud to someone who isn’t there yet..
