I took Cal for his one month visit and he weighed 9 lbs 15 oz. He was 22 inches long. My cute little boy. The doc said he looked great. He has baby acne, which is no big deal and at this point he was sleeping 4 hours at a time at night, which was great!
That was over 3 weeks ago. He will be two months old this week. He is now sleeping all night long. going to bed at 10:30ish and sleeping til sometime between 6:30 and 8:00 a.m. I am a very happy mommy! He is a great little man. My other two slept thru the night from 12 weeks on, but this one is doing it really early. He is still the quietest person in the house. He just grunts and squirms when he get hungry, otherwise he lays around being sweet and smiling. Seriously, he smiles all the time now. I am enjoying him immensely!
He is still wearing size 0-3 clothes. He is a small little man and I love it! He is taking 4 ozs every 3.5 hours or so. He is in a great routine, which makes life easy. He falls asleep immediately when we get in the truck, which is just the opposite from Shay, who NEVER slept in a vehicle. I am so glad my very last one is so very agreeable and I am able to really enjoy every moment of the baby stage. I do not want this one to grow up, not looking forward to the milestones, cause that means he is growing up and I want him to stay this little man in my arms forever!
One thing I am not enjoying is my post preggo weight gain. I gained 30 lbs with this baby, the MOST I have ever gained. I gained half of it the last two months. I was in so much pain and so very tired, I just lay around. It was misery. Apparently, I ate and ate, although I do not remember eating THAT much. As of now I have about 20 pounds to lose. I have never in my life weighed this much... NEVER. I have always been around the same size, give or take five pounds. The most unfortunate part is that my shirts are all too small. I have always worn a medium, but now they fit skin tight. Sigh
The only reason I posted this is so that I can post my weight loss, because I will be losing it and getting back down to the real me! I am excited to get started on my new workout plan. I happen to LOVE exercising. The only time I do not do it regularly is when I am preggo, and I never have the energy to.
So, that is my "catch-up" blog. I have had this blog in my head for weeks. Where does the time go?
