Week 11 PP

Another week has passed with swiftness. I mean, where does the time go? No blogging yesterday because I was busy entertaining my husband and in and out of naps. Also, I was reading. I'm mostly always reading. I love having the time to read. I love reading to my children as well and now that all electronics for the children are cut off we spend more time reading aloud. I have Maria read to her sister and brother. I want them to love reading more than watching tv or a movie. The more wrinkles in the brain, the better I say.

Anyway, on to the postpartum talk. I feel great. Im slinking back into the Victorias Secret panties. I'm feeling a little more sexy. I paraded around my house in my panties yesterday and played sexy housewife for my husband where I picked stuff up off of the floor so he could get his eyes full. He told me I was "so wrong". I even handed him my ass on a silver platter at 1 am after feeding baby before he left for work. A going away present, if you will.

I'm still working out and I'm still loving Zumba. I can't wait for tomorrow and the rest of this week. My body still looks the same to me. Slow changes are cool with me though. I'll take it!

I took new pics but like I said, they look the same.

What is a 10 week old doing?

My baby was 10 weeks old yesterday. He is giving up the grins and even a giggle sound when smiling. He loves to smile when he's on his belly and he rolls from his stomach to his side. Now is not the time to leave your baby on the couch unattended. Baby will roll right off.

He was trying to roll over while I was snapping the pic so I had to catch him.

He's such a happy baby! He is up a lot more during the day. In fact, I can only get him to sleep if we are really loud, at Zumba, or in the car. He's up for a few hours at a time. During his awake hours, we do tummy time, we dance, and we talk. The girls also cart him around and talk to him. He is still waking up one to two times during the night. It's usually go to bed by 9:30 and up at midnight. Back to sleep at 12:30 and up at 3:30-5:30. His schedule varies. It's not a set one. I guess in the next few weeks or so he might develop a schedule. Here's to hoping!

Week 9 PP

Seriously! Where does the time go? I didn't even post yesterday. Week 9 has came and almost gone as of tomorrow. Im taking a pic in my new $15 jeans I snagged from the Limited clearance rack in a size 8. Hooody hooooo!
Looking at them, I was convinced I wouldn't be able to button them, but I did!
Zumba! It works! Its been a month since I started Zumba and I can totally see the changes in my body.

The bottom 3 pics I just took. Pardon the hair. I just blow dried.
This is a nursing tank I have on as well. It's convertible and I love it. It has built in support and pads for a nice look

Jackson is sleeping a little more at night and up a lot more during the day. He is smiling and cooing and holding his head up with ease. I can't wait for the day he sleeps through the night on a nightly basis. I need sleep!

See yall next Friday for week 10 PP.

Week 8 postpartum

Week 8 has come and almost gone.
At week 8 postpartum, you are nowhere near out of the woods. You are still up all night and all day. You are running on "god only knows what." In fact, you should only be running on "god only knows what" while at home. It's not safe to be out in public. I assure you.
I almost ran a red light today. My husband was telling me "red light, red light" in his calm manner. It took me a minute to catch on to what he was saying and I slammed on the breaks. I can only conclude that because I am severely sleep deprived, my synapses aren't firing correctly. I could kill somebody. Maybe I shouldn't be operating heavy equipment. This also includes the stove. I left it on the other day after cooking. I left to go do Zumba down the road and came back to a nice smelly house. Luckily I only had the burner on low. It burned my wooden spoon I left in the pan. Also, my Rachael Ray skillet is pretty much ruined. Nobody likes scrambled eggs that stick to the bottom of a non stick pan! This is the second time in a week that I have left a burner on. All the Seattles Best in the world isn't helping me right now. The only thing that can help me at this point is a nice 10 hours of sleep. (says the woman nursing a very hungry baby)

Even though I'm sleep deprived, don't get it twisted. This woman is all about getting back into shape. I'm not about to keep this flabby figure much longer. I would like to thank Zumba and Cybex for helping me get back into shape. I'm nowhere near where I want to be but I'm nearer than I was last week. Im super dedicated to working out. Also, I can sometimes be patient. Weight loss is one of those things where you have to be patient. I've lost the weight before and I will do it again. I just stick to the routine and take it one day at a time.

Picture time. I'm so sleepy I don't think I can write anymore.

Happy New Day

I'm not one to get excited by the new year like some. I get excited by a new day. A new day is a fresh start. It's a day to do the things you didn't do yesterday. It's a day to sneak in a few more kisses to your husband and kids. A day to workout harder than you did the day before. A day to start with a positive attitude.

We all should look at a new day as exactly that. It's a new day. A NEW day folks! That's amazing! Think about it. We don't just get a new year, we get a new day! What better way to do what we have resolved to do. One day at a time, not one year at a time.

Please take heed. Listen to your heart. Make time for yourself. All things can be accomplished if we take it one day at a time.

I'm starting my day off every morning with thanks and love and a promise to do whatever it is I decide to do that day. Simple. Just the way I like it.

You decide the day you want to have.

I will see yall Friday for week 8's postpartum blog. Woohoo!
