Baby is here

Today baby is two weeks and one day old! I had the BEST labor and delivery (thank you, Jesus!). He is a little guy--- weighed 5 pounds, 1.5 ounces...but healthy and all is well.

The pic shows his big sister holding him the day he was born.

Now I have the job of getting rid of the baby weight (and beyond). I gained a crazy 53 pounds with this pregnancy! Giving birth removed 19 of those pounds and I lost an additional 3.4 this week. I'm currently at 30 pounds above pre-pregnancy weight and I am working hard to get rid of them. I want to be able to wear my smaller clothes NOW!

I'm still adjusting to the fact that having a baby in the home means I can't accomplish nearly the amount of stuff I could before. A couple of days, things just got hectic and I didn't have a moment to meal plan or exercise. Then I realized I must do these two things FIRST in my days. (any baby needs come first, actually, but I mean first ahead of laundry or schoolwork or whatever)

Oh......and I have a 5K at the end of June. I REALLY insist that I be back to "myself" or better by that time.

Thanks for reading!


  1. YAY! Congratulations and welcome little baby! Don't sweat the weight. It will come off.

  2. Congratulations…enjoy the little man…
    Once you get organised the planning, the exercise, as well as the laundry will get fitted in around baby, hubby and other children.

  3. CONGRATULATIONS! I understand not getting anything done - I'm in that stage also, being a foster mom. I can't blame the weight on the baby though ;) Dawn

  4. Many blessings to you, your new son and family. Things will come together, just one step at a time. Best wishes for it all.

  5. Many blessings to you, your new son and family.
    Everything will be fine, just one step at a time.
    Many blessings to you.

  6. Congratulations to you and your family! Your daughter looks elated!
