Pear coaxing Jovie...

Lately, Pear seems to be realizing that Jovie is a baby and that she's in mommy's tummy and that she will come out soon. The other day Pear lifted up my shirt, put her face next to my tummy and said "come out Jovie." I then asked her to repeat it so that I could get it on camera. video

Over the last few weeks, I have been trying to get Jovie to move to a head-down position. (She is still transverse.) There are some recommended things to try such as laying upside down on an iron board propped on the couch, kneeling on stairs with your hands a few steps below your knees, playing music low on your abdomen, putting a flashlight at the lower end of your abdomen, etc. Pear has been intrigued as to what I am doing and she ventures to try it herself. The other day as I was on the stairs, Pear came over and tried it right next to me. She had such a hard time holding herself up, she started to grunt and then eventually gave up and backed off the stairs. Pear also gets frustrated at times when my tummy is exposed and she tells me to get "dwessed" and she pulls my shirt down. Here is a picture of her coaxing Jovie to move with the flashlight.

Too cute! Well isn't Miss Jovie quite different from Pear in their arrival date (granted you've been completely proactive in your health to ensure everything goes well).

That's cute. I bet Pear will be a great big sister to Jovie!
