Weight: 19.3 lb (75%) and 28.5″ (98%). He’s been so active this month so I’m not too surprised that his weight is a little down. But he’s still eating well and nursing for long periods, undistracted. Doctor said everything looked good!
What Charly is up to: We are for sure in the sweet spot. He’s happy and content. He’s sleeping and napping pretty well and can roll around to get to toys he wants to play with. I’m excited for him to sit up, soon I hope. He’s much more of a roller than Riley was. He’s so happy when we go in to get him after a nap, or when he wakes up in the morning. Watching him discover food has been really fun too. He’s generally a really happy, chill and content baby.
PostPartum: I had my Women’s Wellness exam this month, and all is well. I’ve still got like 18lbs to go before I’m back to my pre-pregnancy starting weight. I seem to be holding onto it longer than last time around. But I was lighter when I got pregnant, so maybe it’s all just the numbers. My tummy is still hanging out, and some weight around my hips…oh, and my nursing situation makes me hold extra weight up top. I have to get it together and get fitted for a new nursing bra. Even the ones I was wearing with Riley at this point are too snug. Just so dang expensive. But, for something I’ll be wearing for another year, probably justified. I’m not back to working out yet. I just can’t make time for it. I’m eating really well, and constantly packing and cleaning around the house so it’s not like I’m not active. I miss a traditional work out – and I’ll get back to it, this just isn’t the time.
Baby Gear: Lots of teething toys. Highchair. We just got a new to us Bob Double Stroller, never thought I would want one, but Riley still really likes the stroller. Ergo. His lovie (a bear) we call Lil’ Oso.
Thoughts: The coming weeks and months are going to be crazy. Like I was telling Kelly the other night – our life is so unbalanced. We don’t see each other very much because of how his schedule is, and that bothers us both. We’re looking forward to moving and getting more quality family time together. I try to take photos and videos of the kids, but it just doesn’t make up for the personal time. I can’t wait for weekend adventures and family dinners.
