2 weeks!!

I can't believe my little man is 2 weeks old ALREADY! The time has gone fast, but at the same time, it's slow too. Anyone who's had a baby knows the first 6 weeks are the toughest. So in a way, I'm counting down to that (which will hopefully lead to more sleep!!) but also I'm trying to relish every little minute with my precious boy b/c I KNOW he won't be this little forever. I LOVE this baby stage where they want/need to be held a lot. I love feeding him and changing him and seeing how his big brother interacts with him. It just melts my heart.

As far as updates go let's see.... I am down another 4# since last Friday, so I have 12 to go to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. Then my first mini goal after that is another 7...159. My reward for that is to cut off my hair! I can't wait!!! But I will NOT do it until I see that 159. I'm trying to be realistic...I hope to be able to cut my hair by fall, but if it happens sooner, I'll be THRILLED!!!

I can wear REAL shoes again. YAY!!!

I have on a real shirt today too....NOT maternity or nursing wear. I haven't tried to wear real jeans or capris yet. Maybe I'll try that this weekend.

Nursing is still going well. At least I think it is. We have our days but so far so good. I am still a little sore, but nothing un-bearable the way it was last week.

And are some pictures. I know I promised them over the weekend but then today I realized oh my's THURSDAY!! Holy cow!!!

DS1 LOVES his baby brother!

A close up taken on Saturday...luckily his face has cleared up now.

A close up JUST taken.

Daddy with his boys and of course his DDoggie...she poses for all the pictures now!!

Sounds like you were all baby, that is great. You are almost at your pre-pg weight! Now WHY do you want to cut your hair?

The pictures are precious! Thanks for sharing.

You were all baby! Hooray for almost being at your pre-pg weight (makes me feel a little better about the idea of ever having kids)!

I love the first picture with DS1 and DS2! Soo cute. Enjoy your time with him, glad to hear the pain is better this week!

He is sooooo cute and I am soooo proud for you to be in real clothes already!! You give me enccouragement for after my pregnancy is over!! I'm hoping that I can keep my weight gain to a minimum and then get it off fast. Putting on 15 pounds before even getting pregnant sucked but those artificial hormones were worth it now that I'm officially "knocked up"! Hugs to you and the family - hope you had a great mother's day!
