It's so nice to hear how everyone is doing!
I've definitely had more of the baby blues this time around...Emmie is 6 weeks tomorrow. I think it's the sheer responsibility of running a household, having a somewhat part time job (I keep the books for my dh's office, and it is tax time), homeschooling my older 2, having a very spirited 2 year old, blah, blah, blah
. Could I feel any sorrier for myself?! When all your work if 'family' work, you don't get time off, KWIM? So I think that + sleep deprivation has really gotten to me...but I know it will pass.
I'm really enjoying the baby, she is very sweet and cuddly. Her newborn phase is almost over, I can see her changing so much now.
I also feel a bit fat right now--I lost most of the baby weight, but I still have 8 lbs that is just stuck around my middle (well, there might be a lb or 2 in my boobs
). It makes it tough to get into my clothes, but the maternity stuff doesn't fit either. I'm hitting the treadmill tomorrow--a little exercise might do me good.
Of course, eating 2000 calories in cookies in one day probably isn't doing much for my figure
Now all my kids are fighting, gotta run
