Wednesday weigh-in (9/17)

Whew! To quote Eugene Levy from Splash, "What a WEEK I'm having!" Yesterday was just one of those long, crazy days where your baby doesn't do what you want him to do, and your schedule is all thrown off, and you miss your kidless days and having a job you can leave at the office.

This morning Benjamin was up early (5:30 is early, remember?) and I was still reeling from my day yesterday. The thought of getting both boys and myself ready and out the door for Bible study by 9:00 was just too much to handle; I simply did not have it in me. So we stayed home.
I weighed myself and I have lost another pound! That's 8 1/2 pounds since July, so not bad! Plus I can now wear a few pairs of pants that I have not been able to! That motivated me to work out while Benjamin napped.
Andrew has been super cute and more obedient today (thank goodness), so that, too helps. The three of us headed off to the hospital so I could weigh and feed Benjamin.

He gained another 3.8 ounces!! He went from 12.04.2 lbs to 12.08.0 lbs! YAY! Then when he ate, he gained 4.2 ounces! That is a real encouragement b/c he's been kind of lethargic lately and not wanting to eat as much.

So that's what is going on here. I am posting some recent cute pictures below.

I have this out-of-control urge to pinch Benjamin's cheeks.
I am so happy he has gained weight!!!
And, way to go on working out!
You go, girl.

Ok double yay! Yay to you for losing another lb! (JEALOUS here, and supremely unmotivated!) And a SUPER YAY for Benjamin for gaining more weight! I'm so happy that he's still doing well breast feeding! Hugs!
