OMG, wishin'&hopin'! Congrats! That is just crazy awesome that you're expecting another so soon. We'd like to have ours about 2 years apart, and I realize that means I'll need to be preggo around this time next year. I'm not sure how I feel about the logistics of that, yet! Yay for you two!!!
pleasantlyfurious - i LOOOOOOVE the photo! So freaking cute! I am back to work (ugggghhhh.... I wanna be a SAHM or WAHM SO BAD!). I'm not often in the W. Philly area (I work in C. City) but we still do need to eventually get together. I hear you on how much time these little kiddos suck up, though! It's like there's ALWAYS something happening in our house. 'Cause, well... there is! :-) Amazing how we all found so much time for MDC when TTC and preggo. Lol.
I second Smithie's response re: the stroller. I wear Cady as much as possible, and the only time I really use the stroller is when I'm shopping for clothes and will be trying things on. That's the only time it's more convenient to have a stroller than a wrap. Will you be doing a lot of walking? I know I do get tired carrying her if I'm walking a lot, but even so... I STILL prefer the wrap. :-)
So cool that you're taking the trip and visiting fam with Leo! Too bad your DP can't join, though.
AFM - Cady just turned 3 months. If you like, you can read my monthly letter to her on my blog. She's such a fun, happy girl. She brightens each of my days in ways I just can't describe. I miss her so much now that I"m back to work, but I am thankful that we have MIL to watch her four days a week. The fifth day, I work a half day from home, and hang with her. I think she's going through a growth spurt now, because I'm finding it hard to feed her enough to satisfy her (including pumping enough during the day) but we're working on it and I have a freezer stash. She started refusing to nurse during the day on weekends (I think because during the day she expects bottles 'cause it's what she gets at Grams' house) but we're working on that, too. She still has nice, long nursing sessions in the morning and evenings.
She's HUGE, weighing in at 15 lbs, 6 oz and 25 inches long last Thursday (she was 3 months on Saturday). She is starting to outgrow some of her 6 months clothes, and started wearing some 9. Although she's just above the curve and at the top of the curve for length, proportionately, she's in the 50 - 75th percentile, so she doesn't look TOO chubby (except for her CHEEKS!).
I'm feeling pretty good, and have dropped just over 50 lbs since giving birth. That's 20 under my pre pregnancy weight, so I'm super psyched. Nursing has been amazing for my metabolism, I guess! I'm excited to see what happens when I can finally establish a regular workout routine (hard to do since we're still getting used to our regular routines!). Below is a pic of me at 39 weeks, and then a pic from this morning. I went to 42 weeks, but this is the last decent preggo photo I have of me for comparison purposes.
Here's one of my favorite pics of her from this past month, and a family photo of the three of us. Many more on the blog! :)
Hope everyone else (and their babes) are doing well! Update when you can!
