Weight Gain

He's 9 pounds and 9 and a half ounces! His nurse practitioner says he's developing ahead of his adjusted age in some ways and behind in others. Like he rolls over which he shouldn't be doing until he's about 3 or 4 months old. But he doesn't focus well or follow things with his eyes like he should for a 3 month old. So he's somewhere in between his adjusted age and his actual age in terms of development.

I want to go walk around the mall today. I need to get rid of some of this extra weight. I think once I register for my courses I'll have a gym membership to the school gym. I'm thinking I'll be able to go work out there at least once a week or something. But then again if I'm being realistic here, I'll likely go once or twice and then end up too busy to go again. Ah well. That's life I suppose.

I'm participating in a Pay it Forward thing from Amy's blog so if anyone wants some random thing from me that's handmade (by me) leave a comment and let me know. I'll randomly choose two people. And the condition is you have to pay it forward on your blog too. So leave a comment telling me what you'd prefer. I can crochet scarves and hats, and I'm great at sewing random stuff. Let me know if you have a specific request. I can't promise I'll make exactly what you want, but I'll make an effort.

Oooh, his weight is good. Growing boy for sure!

I am learning that losing weight after a baby is not easy at all. It's been a constant struggle for me--hard to find an ounce of time to exercise.

Maybe once our little ones are mobile and we have to chase them, that will help?!

I hope so. I think it has to do with the fact that it's winter here, which means it's -40 degrees all the time. I usually walk a lot, in the summer. Pushing a stroller around for a few hours at a time definitely helps the weight issue. But I'm stuck inside right now and it's not helping things.

He sounds like he's doing fantastically well, if you ask me. :)
