Date night went well. I got quite a bit of cleaning done over the weekend and colored my hair again. Kingsley did well with my boyfriends sister and her boyfriend while we were gone. I beat Nate in bowling and met his coworkers. A lot of drunk people acting like fools. It was a good time. Excited now for our next date night. I was a little thrown off today though. I was running late for work and had to have my boyfriend run me some stuff I forgot. Overall our first date night went well.
As I sit here during my first pumping sesh of the work day, I feel extremely blessed to be able to feed my precious baby with my body. It’s truly a beautiful thing. I love knowing that my baby is getting something made special for him and he’s getting the healthiest option. Some people aren’t able to breastfeed, so I feel extremely grateful that I am.
Kingsley let me make breakfast, but not eat it.
I guess you do what you gotta do in these situations.
After some ambient music, some rocking back and forth, and a binky we had success.
Now can I sit without waking him up?
Now to finish my cold breakfast!
We’ll see how long I get. Gotta pump soon.
As I am holding my sleeping 4 month old while bouncing up and down on the edge of the bed, I contemplate whether or not to lay him down yet. If he is not in a deep enough sleep yet, he will start screaming again. I have the next 2 days off so I am trying to get the apartment cleaned up. Not an easy thing to do with a gassy, teething baby.
My parents, my boyfriend, and I all loaded up the boys in the van and went to the hospital for Adrian’s (my 3-year-old) and Liam’s (my 1 1/2-year-old) checkup. They both had to get shots. My boyfriend stayed in the waiting room with Kingsley while my parents and I squeezed in the small room with the boys. While the doctor was trying to check the boys’ vitals they freaked. They screamed and flailed their limbs while twisting and crying. You’d think they were being tortured. My parents had to help me pin the boys down so they could prick Adrian’s finger and give them both shots. They calmed right down after we picked them up and left the room, but we had to listen to the screams of other children while walking down the hall to the exit. Stressed. Kingsley has shots next month. I’m dreading it. He did really well last time though.
I’m using Mary Kay toning lotion on my midsection and doing planks and sit ups to try and make a difference in this blubbery-ness after pregnancy. I’m applying the toning lotion in the day and at night. I’ve done a 20 second plank and 12 situps today. Hoping for positive results! Don’t have any time to myself so I was looking for something quick. Hoping to start running one of these days.
