I don't think you're ready for this jelly.

Just a quick update - we had a nurse come visit from the local children's hospital (hey! it was free!) and she looked Mason over, weighed him, etc. He already weighs 7 pounds 15 ounces...and that was Friday! His next pediatrician appointment is on Tuesday, so I am sure he will be well over 8 pounds by then! He is just too cute and this IS getting a little easier. This breastfeeding stuff is the most difficult I think. More on that later.

I anticipate my next post to be about Mason's first bath, which was a week ago, including pictures. He actually likes his baths because he is dealing with a bit of a diaper rash. Poor guy. That's what happens when you continually poop all.day.long! Dude farts LOUD. Mom and dad are proud. There is no guess work in when he needs a diaper change.

I will be back soon with pictures and the first bath, breastfeeding stories, and my must-haves. Stay tuned and thanks for hanging in there with me!

Edit: And just because I am REALLY proud of this...I am already back down to the weight I was at my first OB appointment (which was at 6w pregnant)! Only 10 pounds to go until I am back to my goal!

I was also pre-pregnancy weight at my six week check. I didn't have the guts to weigh myself before then! With the continued nursing,and not really trying to "diet" I ended up dropping to my lowest weight overall--which was 10 pounds less than my prepregnancy weight. Nursing really is slimming!! An added benefit.

I really look forward to hearing more of your experiences....I love to hear about this kind of stuff! It is such an amazing time--and only other Mama's can identify and enjoy the stories to their fullest!

I should also note that I gained back those extra ten pounds once I fully stopped nursing Stink at 15 months....I am totally okay with that.
