Well hello everyone! I've been seriously deprived of computer time and I don't think I've been around since Asa was born. But I'm trying to get a little screen time now. We just moved into a new place so we've been extra busy but we love it here!!! More space for the kids, a basement for DP's band, a backyard and an attic play room for DD. OH, and a FIREPLACE for the holidays! I'm so excited.
Asa will be 4 months in a couple days. He's sooooo big I can't believe it. He hasn't had an official doctors appointment yet (born at home and we don't really do doctors unless there is a reason) so I don't have an exact weight but I think he's around 17 pounds. He's long outgrown most of his clothes. He's wearing 6-9 months and has several 9month peaces that fit him great. He's been rolling over and trying desperately to sit up. He laughs a lot and is a happy little boy. He still looks just like his Papa. He's DP's little clone. He's been totally wanting to eat and we just recently gave in and started him on some baby purees. I wanted to BLW (BLS) but he was grabbing at our food and then SCREAMING when he couldn't get it to his mouth. Since we've started feeding him he sleeps better, poops better, and he's basically eliminated the 2 hour screaming fest he was doing at night. He seems totally ready to eat, no tongue thrust and he grabs the spoon shoves it in his mouth and then cries until I get the next spoon full. And the kid still nurses round the clock...lol. He's just a growing boy I guess, but he's getting too old for me. We always joke that he looks like he wants to jump up and start running around with DD.
As for me, I got my first PPAF back last month. Ugh. It was over a YEAR before I got it back with DD so it came as a TOTAL shock. I had some spotting the month before (2 month PP) and felt some twingy stuff in my overies. I was running around saying "I'm not ovulating, I'm not ovulating, I'm not ovulating". Then the next month I felt very clear ovulation and 14 days later had a 7 day long normal (for me) period. I'm so mad because this means I have to now explore birth control options. I can't handle any more babies for a.long.time. But BC makes me hormonal. ugh. Haven't really lost ANY weight yet. Granted, I admittedly haven't been actively trying but nothing has fallen off on it's own yet. I still have belly pouch just like I did the week after he was born.
Anyhow, glad to hear from everyone. I'll post a pic when I get my camera back up and running.
