"This is a woman, and her baby. She is pregnant.The baby is inside her belly, and you can never see inside a belly"
She originally painted a baby inside the woman's belly, but she covered it with black paint as she was explaining it to me.
Oh, my sweet little girl.
And just like that, I am back to my own childhood, reading The Little Prince and laughing at the grown-ups who see a child's drawing but cannot understand it-
they always need to have things explained.
"All grown-ups were once children - although few of them remember it."
Antoine de Saint Exupéry, The Little Prince
All the preparations I made for my second baby was gathering and making montessori infant material.
I love the Montessori way of living!
I was waiting for this moment to come- having my precious little one and trying out all these things Montessori parents swear by.
I truly believe Montessori works, but still it is a great surprise to watch how well this applies to an infant's needs -
the baby is only 2 weeks old and she was occupied by these pictures for what felt like ages to me!
When we had our first baby, we were busy enough worrying if we are holding/ dressing/ caring for her the right way.
Now I am confident to relax and smile just picturing this little new baby in cute cloth diapers.
I try to steal some time alone with my baby bump and the wonderful human being inside it and the same time I want to share it with my loved ones: "Did you see it? She is moving!". All the excitement is here, although this is the second time around.
I am excited to meet my new baby, but can wait just a little more to enjoy this feeling!
