What I Learned This Week

I'm joining JoLynne's carnival again this week. Here are a few things that I learned this week.

  • I must start walking or doing some kind of exercise other than run up and down the hallway to get baby stuff that I need. If I don't do something, I'll never lose those last 6 pounds.
  • Baby Ellie has a "big head"...or so her pediatrician said at her 1 month check-up. I think big heads are cute.
  • The Muffin loves sleepovers at Nana's house.
  • I think I have another UTI. I'm going to try and wait until my scheduled midwife appointment before I seek treatment.
  • When Big Daddy works late, I can handle cooking dinner, feeding, cleaning up, bathing and putting both girls to bed by myself...barely.
  • While Big Daddy doesn't really help with any of the above mentioned stuff, he distracts one little girl while I work on the other one.
  • No matter what, I can never get enough sleep.
  • Having an old friend call you out of the blue can so brighten your spirits. Even if he calls during one of the most chaotic times of the day.
  • I have a hard time making decorating decisions.

I'm not so worried about the last 6 pounds, as my first 6 pounds, and all the other 6 pounds in between!

Thank heavens for sleepovers at the grandparents :)

I recently started walking daily with our dog, started out small and built it up. I even bring the girl I babysit in her stroller. It is a great excersise. Sometimes...I can even convince the kids to come too.

Your post reminded me that I need to get back into the habit of walking daily! Keep up the good work! :)

Dwight is the biggest help when he is doing the distracting so I can get all that stuff done. I'd rather do most of that myself anyway so it works well.

Girl, I hear you on the sleep! I never get enough sleep. I hate getting out of the bed. It doesn't matter if it's 4:30 am or 10:00 am!!

Found your blog via Joy's. Ellie is so adorable!!
My son was born at the end of March, and I've been tracking food and walk walk walking to lose the weight. 6lbs is nothing, you'll say goodbye soon!! :)

Oh, sweet sleep. I remember the zombie days after having my daughter. Every little nap is precious!
