12 Weeks…Seriously!? Yep. 12 weeks post baby and life is back on track. I’m back at work. E’s adjusted to being a big brother and our family is complete.
Allie at 12 Weeks:
Allie continues to grow like a weed. She is becoming more interactive, smiling and talking. It really melts your heart.
A is eating about 5-6 ounces each time and is gaining a good appetite. Next month we will introduce rice. I can’t believe it’s getting close to time for that already.
Allie is a rock star in this category if you ask me (at least compared to E). She goes down at 8:30 and wakes up once at 2:30, eats and goes back down till 5:30. Last night she actually slept till 5:30 (no 2:30 feeding). So great.
She is definitely interacting well. She has been spending more and more time on her activity playmate and I love to sit and watch her learn to use her arms. You can almost see the wheels turning.
I could sit and listen to her coo for days.
All in all, she is a great baby. Her temperament is chill and she pretty much just goes with the flow.
Mommy at 12 Weeks:
I have been trying to go to bed as quickly as possible but with 1 month of school left it’s getting very busy so I’m in bed around 11:00. Not ideal but there’s light at the end of the tunnel.
I definitely feel like I should get the “I Tried” trophy here. I’m just barely getting by. I’m making just enough to keep Allie comfortable but I haven’t been able to “bank” any. I know that at some point in the pretty near future I’m gonna have to start supplementing. I’m not happy about it but I can’t let Allie suffer because I’m too stubborn to give her what she needs. It’s something I’m just going to have to come to terms with. I guess the 80 ounces of water, mother’s milk tea and rest when I can get it, just isn’t helping.
This has been going so well until last week. I was up to 20 miles a week and I was really feeling like I was in a groove. Then I was plagued with an injury from labor that just won’t go away so I had to take a week off which puts me in a tough spot for Rock n Roll but I’m not going to let it stop me.
I had a few weeks where the weight loss stalled out and I’m pretty sure my diet had something to do with it. I seriously need to do Laura’s Sugar Detox.
I know lots of you are new momma’s out there..how are you doing?
On a side note, see that tank I’m wearing? The SweatySelfie Tank (#SweatySelfie) ? Yep, that’s my own design and that’s my prototype shirt.
What do you think? Pretty soon you will be able purchase one for yourself! How cool is that?!
