It's all about the 2's

2 days This is our 2nd day alone together since Tim has gone back to work. So far we are handling it okay. Yesterday I just set mini goals for myself....we managed to eat, bathe, get dressed, clean up, and a couple of loads of laundry. I even managed to get Ben to go pee-pee in the potty, something he hasn't done since we brought Alex home. Overall a successful day. Ben was a big help and we even got to spend some time cuddling while watching a movie that evening. Today is starting out the same. I think the important thing is to establish routines and it should come easily...I hope!

2 weeks It's hard to believe that Alex is already 2 weeks old. He is starting to lose that old man/newborn look already. He is starting to outgrow his newborn sized clothing and diapers and moving into 0-3 months. He still mostly sleeps, but we do get a little bit of awake time now. Breastfeeding couldn't be going any better, except I will be happy when he gets past this every 2 hours phase....especially at night. Last night I actually put him in his bassinet to sleep. He did pretty good, which surprised me. Let's hope that lasts! Ben refused to sleep anywhere but on a person when he was a baby. Speaking of Ben, he is starting to adjust to his little brother. He shows interest in touching him, has asked to hold him a few times, and loves to retrieve his paci when Alex starts to cry. Of course, this could be because he wants Alex to be quiet, lol. I tried to get a few pictures, but they didn't turn out too well. Here's a few of the better ones....

20 pounds That's how much I've lost so far. Only 7 more lbs to go to get back to my prepregnancy weight. Of course, everything has shifted around and I think my hips are a little wider but overall I am pleased with how I look right now. Much better than post pregnancy with Ben!

Here I am at 40 weeks

and 2 weeks later

Nichol asked me the other day if I miss being pregnant.....not yet. I am enjoying being able to sleep in whatever position I want, the ability to walk and not waddle, the decrease in the trips to the bathroom, etc...But most of all I am enjoying every cuddly moment with my little peanut!

6 thanks for stopping by, i love comments!:
