My thoughts on being a mother/having a baby:
I feel a new confidence, less self doubt. I feel I'm doing what I'm supposed to do. I don't have to think about the next big adventure, the next big project, I can just be. (And I have great company to just BE with) This isn't to say I don't worry about the future, money and some big questions about being a parent, but I suddenly don't care if everyone hears me singing off key, I don't feel like I have to talk/entertain unless I want too, etc.
My postnatal Bod is less than fit but it's getting better. Some days better than others, some days I think I'm going to stay fat and I'm doomed to have love handles forever. Other days I'm optimistic and feel great about doing lunges and lifting my pathetic 5 pound weights.
Thanksgiving was good. Bretts two brothers and their girlfriends along with Sally came out and we had dinner at his Uncle Dannys place. Dinner was delicious, Aarons girl Kaitlin really came through to help us out with our veggie thanksgiving. Scott, the youngest brother made the switch too, so we needed it to be convincing so we can keep him on our side. Muhahaha. Resist the bacon brussel sprouts!! Resist!
Ready for his walk.
John and Cassandra came out to visit for a weekend.
Cruise Ship, Mila wanted to be the captain. Perfect!
The baby is waking, time to eat!
