My gorgeous Laurinha gave her first steps today, without support! We are so excited. It’s just amazing to see my little baby developing and discovering the world; I feel like it’s me learning all these things for the first time.

She is also standing up on her own. Well, she could stand up before, but she used to hold somewhere to stand up and then stay up. Now she stands up supported only by the strength of her legs. It’s funny, though, that most of the times she opens her legs to wide and can’t move.

I’ve decided I’m not going to be anxious about her development. There was a time that I thought she was a bit slow with certain things (teething, walking, talking) but now I don’t care. She will do things when she wants and it’s all good. She says “mamae” (mummy in Portuguese), and loads of very weird things. I’m pretty sure that she will be a chatter box once she starts speaking, so I really don’t want to rush things. I also gave up trying to sort out her sleep. Talking to loads of different people, I learned that it’s more common to find kids that don’t sleep a full night than the opposite, and generally around 3 years old they start sleeping better. So let’s wait and see. I hope I won’t change my mind once I start working.

  1. Minha mãe disse que era super bitolada com o desenvolvimento da minha irmã, até eu nascer, quando ela tinha 2 anos. Daí minha mãe jogou os livros de psicologia pro alto e mandou um dane-se e no fim até que demos certo! Acho que o stress que você sente ela deve perceber também, então melhor deixar pra lá mesmo!

    E fofoleta andando já, awnn!! Vou ter que dar um jeito na estante da TV quando vocês vierem da próxima vez, pra ela não ficar na tentação de mexer nos botões dos videos games, rsrs!

  2. Nossa Chris, que difícil essa volta ao trabalho!! Li também o outro blog! Ainda bem que sua mãe está com você. A Laura saiu do daycare? Adorei as fotos, sobretudo a da mesa de jantar que você ainda consegue produzir depois de um dia de trabalho!!! A Laura está fofíssima como sempre!!! Nunca perguntei qual é sua área…é marketing?
    Beijos, boa sorte, e tenho certeza que daqui a pouco você está tirando de letra essa vida multifunção!!!
