Half Way There

Today Lucy is 7 weeks old, so I am roughly halfway through my maternity leave.

I have mixed feelings about this. I miss working. I miss being around adults. But I also like being with Lucy. We've hit a rhythm that works for us. Lucy is so darned cute, that it sucks knowing I'll be going back to work right as Lucy starts being more alert and playful.

Over all we're doing really good. We've started trying to set a bed time routine. Bath time, feeding, swaddle and to bed. She doesn't go to sleep until a few hours later, but its a start.

I've lost a total of 22lbs. so far, but I've hit a plateau. That's okay, but I'd still like to slim down to a healthier weight overall. I was going to go back to ballet last week, but John worked late. So here's hoping I'll make it back into the dance studio this week. I know I'm going to get my ass kicked after such a long break, but it will also be so good for me. Got to get those abs back and functioning better. The stretching couldn't hurt either.

Now onto the pictures.

  1. She looks like both Ruth and Will at that age in the top photo. But the smile photos are the best!

    1. You're right. I see Will in that photo.

  2. Oh so beautiful! I've missed her - hope to see her soon!

  3. I have too and you are closer! Wish I was too.
