I hope this post finds everyone doing well with their little ones! I can't believe it's been 8 weeks already. In some ways it seems like yesterday when I was pregnant and feeling little DJ inside me. In other ways, it feels like DJ has always been with us!
Devin is doing well. He is a sweet, calm, happy baby. He had his 2 month checkup this past Thursday (he was 7 weeks, 4 days). Devin weighed in at 13.3 lbs and is 23 inches long. He got his first vaccinations and didn't cry when he got them (he also didn't cry when he got his vitamin k shot at birth) however he was really fussy for the rest of that day and evening.
I've mentioned before how I am thoroughly enjoying having a baby in the house again. The dynamic is pleasantly different with having 4 older brothers to help out Mommy! All of his brothers love him and have fun trying to make him smile. Devin watches intently as his brothers play and talk....it's like he's getting ready to join the fun shortly!
It especially warms my heart to see my oldest son KJ (he turned 20 on New Year's day) and Devin interract.
As for me, I am feeling pretty good. I am still having problems with my back but that is due to that stupid hit and run accident that happend 7 days before I gave birth. I have lost a total of 35 lbs so far. I am now needing to buy smaller clothes than when I first got that BFP! I'm not doing anything special and attribute the weight loss to breastfeeding. I will start a moderate excersise routine this week.
On January 5th, I celebrated my 17 year anniversary with DH. KJ watched Devin and DH took me to a romantic dinner (he always spoils me!).
I miss posting here every week! I do keep up with the posts. I post pictures of Devin on FB just about everyday and I also keep a postpartum video journal. If you would like to become friends on FB, please send me a PM with your FB info (mine is private...easier for me to find you).
Here are some pics of my handsome growing boy!!
