After we just had a check-up in the hospital, I figured it´s time to start logging my pregnancy through weekly bump updates here. I already feel that this pregnancy is flying by compared to the first one (probably because of chasing a toddler every day) and I am not really realizing what all is going on so I figured these weekly updates will also help me to keep track of this pregnancy and have something to look back at later.
Sooo we decided to jump on the potty training train last week. For a while, the bichin has been very interested in the moments we went to the bathroom and wanted to sit on his potty next to us. Also, with the extreme heat here, his skin got quite irritated from the diaper. So although a bit nervous about this whole process, we started potty training last weekend. Since we just started, I will save the details of how it is going for a later post but all in all, we can´t complain.
We have never really been car lovers, as long as it drove and was comfortable we were happy. Whereas other people seemed to be obsessed with specific brands or the newest models, we have been happily driving second-hand cars of a variety of brands with the only requirement it had to be safe.

Where we live, it can get pretty hot. By Dutch standards, it gets insanely hot. Although I love the sun and the summer weather, July and August can be a bit too hot, even for my “I-want-to-be-outside-in-the-sun-all-the-time” attitude.
Luckily, we have air conditioning in our place, but I don’t like to let it run all the time. I especially don’t like to turn it on at night, since I don’t want the little guy to get the typical air-conditioning cold. And let’s not forget how expensive keeping the air conditioner on 24/7 can be. In order to survive those hot months, we have found some tips and tricks to make the heat a bit more bearable without spending our entire paycheck on air conditioning.
So, if you´re usually the one that is always up for a wine with your friends, doesn´t go to hockey training without having a cold beer on the terrace afterwards and generally are fan of a nice drink with dinner or on a terrace in the sun, keeping a beginning pregnancy a secret for said drinking buddies might be quite complicated (I realize I might sound like an alcoholic now, believe me, I am not. I just live in Spain and love me a good wine).
