What size clothes does baby wear? 0-3 months for now but we are quickly approaching 3-6

How is your workout/weightloss routine going? I am down to my pre-pregnancy weight but I am not actively working out or following a diet. I think it's my lack of time to eat that did the trick...lol

Any big milestones for baby lately? Not really Sad Still waiting for those first real smiles and for him to really start looking at us. It seems like it's taking forever.

Any exciting family trips planned for this year? We're possibly going to Gatlinburg, TN with DH's family this summer but we've made no definite plans yet.

Are you BF or FF? FF because Ryan has a milk protein allergy.

How are YOU feeling? Doing really well physically. Emotionally I just worry about Ryan alot since we had so many issues with his allergy, colic, and reflux since he was born. It's been a very tiring 6 weeks for sure.

How is your workout/weightloss routine going? I haven't been cleared for exercise yet, though I have dropped a lot of weight. Haven't weighed myself, and never did get around to weighing myself in pregnancy haha. I am back to pre-preg clothes and even bought pre-preg size in jeans the other day. Buttttt....nothing looks the same on me at all. My stomach is still floppy lol.

Any big milestones for baby lately? So many! She's been in a huge growth spurt physically and mentally recently I am sure. She is holding her head up unassisted so much, and turns to track sounds or movement. Her hands are finding their way to her mouth Smile and she is smiling so much at DH and I! When he comes home from work she is all smiles for him. She coos a little too and has "conversations" with us haha. 6 weeks was a big change for her, she is a new baby!

Any exciting family trips planned for this year? No, but I think we should definitely take one!! Going to try and convince DH Wink

Are you BF or FF? BF

How are YOU feeling? Pretty good! My recovery is really coming along now. I still take some pain meds but not as often for sure. Hoping to be given the all clear for exercise soon, though I will have to take it slow.

What size diaper does baby wear? 1 but they are too big - we have frequent leaks

What size clothes does baby wear? just put the newborn stuff away and brought out the 0-3 months. He's getting long.

How is your workout/weightloss routine going? I'm 5 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight thanks to being too stressed to eat and having to cut dairy and soy from my diet. Working out is not happening and I miss it Sad

Any big milestones for baby lately? Hmmm... we think we are seeing little smiles here and there.

Any exciting family trips planned for this year? Yes! Going to see family in Virginia and Germany in May!

Are you BF or FF? This one makes me sad... formula for 2 weeks while dairy and soy leave my system, then hopefully back to BF. I miss it so much and last night I snuck in a little when DH wasn't watching because Ryan was crying so much that I couldn't handle it anymore.

How are YOU feeling? Stressed. Exhausted. Things were going so well when we started having feeding issues resulting in Ryan's hospital stay. Since then our routine we worked so hard on is out the window, he doesn't sleep well, won't nap properly, still wants to eat every 1-2 hrs and is overall pretty cranky. Yesterday was the worst: He cried the entire time he was awake I think. Both DH and I were getting exhausted and run down. I thought by now our life would be back to normal a bit but not so far...

How is your workout/weightloss routine going? Non existent, but I am 2lbs less than pre preg...not sure how that happened. And I agree with Hilary...my clothes all fit differently now!

Any exciting family trips planned for this year? Yeah, if we win the lottery.

Are you BF or FF? Formula

How are YOU feeling? I feel pretty good. 6 weeks was a huge change for me...I felt "normal" again. C sections are hell on the body! But the baby has gotten so much easier..its like we figured each other out, if that makes sense. For a couple weeks there I was worried if I'd ever get the hang of this parenting thing.

A recent picture: coming soon! I wish there was as easier way to upload pics! FB is so much easier for pics...

How is your workout/weightloss routine going? Workout not happening yet. Still trying to find time to do my normal stuff. Diet is going well. Sugar is still a struggle but I'm getting better. It's only been 10 days. Biggrin down about 5 lbs. can't wait to see what happens when im able to regularly exercise.

Any big milestones for baby lately? Cooing lots of smiles looks like he's trying to bat at toys and my face. (shhh... Don't tell him I know he's slept 9 hours for 2 nights in a row)

Any exciting family trips planned for this year? Maybe FL in the fall. We were supposed to go last sept but my body wasn't cooperating and I did think I could handle Disney and the rest of Orlando in that condition so we are going to try again in oct. I don't think we have other plans but we may go to upstate ny in the summer. Well see.

Are you BF or FF? BF

How are YOU feeling? Pretty good most days. I get overwhelmed at times and I'm still fearful taking all four little ones by myself. I may never take them all out, unless i have to, until Eli is easier to handle in stores and parking lots.
