So I’ve officially reached the 8-week postpartum mark in my birth recovery. It’s a bit of a milestone for a number of reasons. For starters, it’s the time I can resume a number of activities, including exercising lightly — something I’m thrilled to hear! I’ve been incredibly eager to shed some fat off of my belly and thighs — an issue I’ve never really had to worry about too much in my life until pregnancy happened (thankfully!). But, I just haven’t had the time to get into it…that with caring for a newborn and all. I barely have time to blog these days. I’m trying to start working out slowly, however. A yoga stretch here and there when I get a moment, before embarking on a serious workout routine.
But in other news, baby is doing quite well and showing strong signs of growth. He’s gained about 3 pounds over the last month and has grown 2 inches! He still spits up quite a bit, which I’ve been assured is normal. Although sometimes it worries me a lot — especially when it’s more projectile and exits both his nose and mouth!
And I guess the breastfeeding thing is going well, although extremely demanding and life-changing. Chili is feeding on demand…and let me just say he is one hungry boy, needing a meal about every hour during the day!
Sleeping is still mostly a distant memory…and I’m surprised how much I am able to function with so little of it. But each day he sleeps a little longer throughout the night. So heading in the right direction, it seems!
Baby is also looking cuter than ever as he fills in those wrinkles all over his arms and legs. Right now, he has his daddy’s face, which isn’t a bad thing :)! Can’t wait to watch him grow into the little gentlemen he will surely be!
