Hello, My name's Katarzyna, I live in Poland and have two little daughters: 4 and 2 years old. I find your blog really interesting, and your children beautiful. When the second child was born we also tried to avoid tarting competition bewteen children. But... is this possible? In Poland babies have first bath in hospital on the second day of life. Why didn't you bath baby M earlier?

good question kat. Yes, baby M did have her first bath minutes after she was born, (wish it was second day). This was her first bath at our home. We wait until the umbilical cord stump has fallen off and then we are free to bath her. I also think that bathing babies a month and under is a little frowned upon here because it dries out their skin. dont quote me but i think thats it. glad you enjoy the weekly posts.

Thanks for answering. There are usually slight differences in caring of the babies around the world:) My daughter had extremely dry and sensitive skin, and doctor recommended bathing in special liquids, instead telling us to stop bathing at all...

swimming was great! Hope it was ok that Ak took those toy cars. Are they real enough?
Next time we will plan for dinner. Oh next week I will be in my hometown, but Joe will be home.

Whenever I think, "There's no way my kids are learning their stereotypical gender roles from us" I check out your blog to get reassurance that we're doing okay. Akello is just such a...boy. And so is Calvin. I just don't know where he learned it. And Aivy is totally strong and feminine at the same time. That part definitely comes from her momma, though.
