Mommy Milestones

So today I had my final ob checkup for my c-section and all is well, but the best part? I am 10 pounds lighter than my pre-pregnancy weight. I haven't seen that weight in years! I was so ready to run out to the mall and have a party trying clothes tons and tons of new clothes. Then reality set in...unless it's nursing friendly and I can latch and unlatch it quickly, I can't buy it. But I'm still ecstatic about my new weight.

Spencer slept 6 hours straight the other night and it was a beautiful thing. The only thing that would have made it perfect would have been if he had slept in his bassinet instead of my chest. But sadly I was just getting over the stomach flu and he and I slept without moving for the 6 hours. It was so refreshing to sleep more than two or three hours. A 6 hour night was then followed by a 5 hour night in which he did sleep in his bassinet. I'm hoping for more of the same tonight, but deep down I know those two nights were probably a fluke.

And finally, God must be a woman because only another woman would know how much we could take when it comes to parenthood, specifically motherhood.

Of course no post is complete without a picture of our fast growing little boy:

  2. Hopefully they won't be a fluke. Some babies to start to sleep for longer stretches earlier. My daughter was sleeping a solid 8-9 at least a night by around 9 weeks, and she was breastfed, too. I'll be praying it keeps up, because I know all too well how important it is for a mommy to get enough sleep. It's a big reason why I'm on the fence about having another baby for awhile, because I do get sleep now.

    He's so adorable and getting so big! Congrats, too, on the check-up. I know that had to be a very pleasant surprise :)
