She didn’t smile or laugh at the pool but she didn’t cry either which means that she probably enjoyed herself. It was her first time and as you can see she can’t do anything on her own but she looked adorable!
(Peanut and her Grandma(my mom))
Peanut is taking her only daytime nap right now but at least she’s in her own room. I think she might get too much sleep at night. Is that even possible? She goes to sleep around 1am and sleeps until about 5am, then from 6:30am-9am, and then I usually try to coax her back to sleep until 11:30am so that mommy can get more sleep. Which means that she is awake from 11:30am to 1am which is 13 hours minus a 3-hour nap somewhere during the day (like right now). She power-naps but I worry that she isn’t getting enough sleep. She just likes to party with her mommy all day! I love playing with her and snuggling but I don’t want her to be exhausted.
My angel is waking up! That’s good news for my breasts because they are starting to hurt! Gotta love that burning feeling in my nipples. Awesome!
My in-laws worked on their pool this afternoon but it’s still too chemical-y and cold to go swimming. It might be ready tomorrow but I didn’t bring my bathing suit on this trip. I am scared to put it on for fear that my body is really as bad as I think it is. I know, I know, I’m 8 weeks post-partum and 4-weeks post-op. Not only did I just have a baby but I had surgery so it’s not like I’d be able to do any strenuous exercise anyway. Thank goodness that I’m breastfeeding because that is probably keeping me from gaining weight again since I’m not terribly active these days. Avery and I go for walks but mostly we lounge on the sofa or have tummy time on the floor. I guess I need to do more. JuJu and I have tried dieting but then one night we’ll get lazy and order pizza. We keep starting over but we keep failing. I am tired of feeling squishy and unattractive. I’m glad that my face isn’t swollen anymore because then I’d be really depressed about my appearance.
My little family will be going to visit JuJu’s parents in Oklahoma for Memorial weekend. JuJu has a four-day weekend so it seemed like the best time to go. We hardly ever visit them because by the time JuJu gets off work on Fridays it is pretty late and we don’t really get to spend much time with them.
They also have their pool ready for Memorial weekend and while I do not feel attractive at all right now I will don a swimsuit because I love to swim! I don’t think we’ll get Avery in the water since it will be too cold.
Look, I realize that today’s post sucks. I felt obligated to write something and it’s 5 in the morning. Right now I am trying to get my angel to go back to sleep.
She is too cute.
Avery laughs! It’s so cute! She only does it when she is sleeping but there is no mistaking it! If we didn’t have a feeding at this most ungodly hour I would have missed it.
I love my daughter.
