Now that things are starting to calm down at my house, I can pay attention to some of my hobbies again. Yay! Hello blog, I have missed you. <3
R is 6 weeks old now and we are adjusting to being a family of 4 pretty well. L is still mostly ignoring her, but we have had a breathrough with his attitude. 2 weeks ago, he just suddenly turned over a new leaf and started acting like a normal kid again. It is such a relief to no longer feel like I am talking to a brick wall whenever I ask him to do something. I know that it will probably come back in the teen years, but I am glad to have my sweet little boy back for a while at least.
It is amazing how much I appreciate how normal of a baby R is. Compared to the colic and reflux that L had, a normal baby is a piece of cake! I am glad that she is our second child, because I would not appreciate this nearly as much if she was our first. She wakes up every 3 hours, has a few gas issues, and doesn't want to nap without me holding her. All in all, normal newborn stuff.
I am sure that I will have some deep thoughts for post later, but right now I am just trying to enjoy my baby girl as much as possible before I have to go back to work. Blech, I am not looking forward to that and it is still weeks away. I am also going to my 6 weeks post partum visit tomorrow so I will be able to get the OK to exercise again. I am determined to get back into shape before my maternity leave is over. The next few weeks should give me a chance to jump start my weight loss, which I hope to document on here. Now if I could only stop craving biscuits and gravy…
