Blog? What is that? It has been a minute since I have written a post, let alone visited my blog. A new baby changes things. Lack of sleep, breastfeeding, diapers, taking care of 2 other children, household needs and just LIFE!
Today my newborn is 5 weeks and I am actually starting to see things more clearly. This past weekend, was my first actual event outing since giving birth and I was able to take the baby. Now don’t get me wrong, I have been out of the house but that has been mainly grocery store, picking up my children from school and doctor visits.
I finally feel like I am getting my mojo back even though I still haven’t slept more than 4 hours at a time since he was born. I am looking forward to a good night sleep one day!
This picture was taken by 5 year old daughter on Saturday afternoon. I know it’s fuzzy, but she did her best. And that’s where I thought of the post – seeing things clearly.
Weight update: I am down 32 pounds since giving birth and have 25-28ish more to go to get back to my pre-baby size. I have really just been drinking alot of water (with Lemon & Lime), eating healthy and breastfeeding. I started walking last week. And I go for my 6 week check up next week. Once I get clearance, Zumba here I come. I am too small for my maternity clothes (they are falling off) but to big for my regular clothes! So, I am still wearing my maternity clothes – looking crazy!!
How long did it take you to see things clearly or get to ” A New Normal”?
