Six weeks marks a few things-
1. The end of my maternity leave next week- which I can't even talk about right now without tearing up.
2. My 6 week post partum checkup which went well. The doctor gave me the all clear to work out
Yeah my doctor is pretty awesome and has a great sense of humor.
So now I can work on losing those last 12 pounds to get back to my pre-baby weight. I dropped about 25 pounds with no problem but now have seemed to held steady with this last little bit left to lost. I think the problem is that my appetite which I lost during pregnancy (still not sure how I gained 37 pounds) as well as no longer having the food aversions I had (I can actually eat chicken again without wanting to vomit) has made it harder to lose those last few pounds. Plus breastfeeding makes me SO hungry all the time. Hopefully if I actually start working out a bit that will help.
As for my little chunky monkey Hunter, he's doing great. Still eating like a champ. We haven't weighed him but I guarantee he's over 10 pounds by now. He's sleeping better for the most part but still has his bad nights where he just wants to eat every hour. He's awake more during the day and very alert with constant cooing and gurgling sounds. And he smiles A LOT! I don't care how sleep deprived I am when I see his little grin every morning I immediately forget how tired I am.
Here are some recent pictures:
This is the onesie I gave to Kristian when I told him I was pregnant. It's amazing we actually have a little person now that can wear it.
Smiling at the fact that he had kept mommy and daddy awake the night before.
Who could resist that smile?
My favorite part of the day, napping with my little dude.
