Maybe Tomorrow.

You know that old saying " why put off til tomorrow what you can do today?", well...I struggle with this one ALOT!  I am constantly making a lists and goals for myself that never get done and I make myself feel better by claiming that it will get done tomorrow.  9 times out of 10, these tasks and goals never happen.  Can we say slacker?

Well today I want to talk about my slackiness ~ yes, I made that word up~ so that I can hopefully be held accountable and get to it, plan to work out.  My excuse?  I had a C-Section.  Now, this is not the greatest excuse since I have been feeling great since about week 3 (post op), but it is so hard to get back into a work out routine once one falls to the wayside.  Why is that?

For the last 2 weeks I have been claiming that I am going to get back on the wagon and get my jiggly ass in shape.  And for the last 2 weeks, I have been saying....."maybe tomorrow".  I just can't seem to make myself get motivated to sweat!  I want the body, but I don't want to do the work to get it. 

So, today: April 19, 2012, I will claim for the last time "maybe tomorrow"....  I will get in some exercise tomorrow No. MATTER. WHAT.!  NO. MORE. EXCUSES.!

One Month


I cannot believe that you are already six weeks old!  How is that even possible?  Time is flying  by and everyday brings a new adventure. 

You are getting so big....  you have gained almost 3 lbs since leaving the hospital, now weighing 10 lbs 10 oz. and are almost 1.5 inches taller.  You are a tall baby and have already grown out of your Newborn sized clothes.  Your little toes want to push right through the fabric.

We have started using cloth diapers on you and oh my gosh....your butt is the cutest thing ever in them!  Ok, so you look like you have some junk in your trunk, but one day you will understand that mommy and daddy made a really great decision in choosing to diaper you this way.  PPsssttt : here's a little secret for you....mommy ordered you a camo diaper so that you can match daddy on hunting days.  It's spring gobbler, ya know?  Isn't that awesome?

You have started to smile in the past few days and I just can't get enough of that sweet little face!  They are few and far between right now, but pretty soon you will be throwing them at everyone.  I can't wait for the day when I walk in to pick you up from daycare and you smile at me.  MELT. MY. HEART.

You are doing pretty well sleeping at night.  Typically you go down around 9ish and only wake up once to feed around 2:30 or 3:00.  You stay up for about an hour and you are out again until around 6ish.  I have to say, although I miss having a full nights sleep, we are blessed that you are doing this well at 6 weeks.  Now that we are back at work, daddy and I take turns on who gets up with you.

Sweet baby boy, you are the best thing that has ever happened to your daddy and I.  We are so in love and can't even remember what life was like without you.  It's weird how that happens.
