Two weeks ago, at 5:30 PM, I met my best friend. It feels like time is flying by! He is growing like a weed, I’m starting to settle into my new role as a mama, and we’re slowly figuring each other out.
If you follow me on Instagram, you might think that all we do each day is take pictures. That is partially true. Here are a few of my favorites:
I’m not doing a full-on baby or mama update this week, but I still want to touch on a few things. Sure, I’ve learned some things along the way, but really, he’s left me with more questions than answers.
I want to know why he poops right after I change him. I want to know why he hates being swaddled, but won’t sleep any other way. I want to know why gas makes him smile. I want to know why he naps when I can’t, and he won’t sleep when I can. I want to know why he thinks 12 am is the time to play. I want to know why he will go to sleep for everyone but me. I want to know why he is stinking cute, yet he drives me absolutely insane. I want to know how old he’ll be before I get a decent night of sleep. I want to know why he makes the best faces when I don’t have my camera. I want to know why he is starting to look more like his dad each day. I want to know if he knows how much I love him.
He is the biggest mystery to me, yet I feel like I’ve known him my whole life. I don’t even remember what it was like before he arrived. I know that everything will just get better with time, too. Happy two weeks, Maddux! We love you so much!
As for me, I think I’m ready to start working out. Obviously, I haven’t gotten the “all clear”, but I think I can up the ante a bit when it comes to activity. Maybe longer walks? Maybe some core work? Maybe some upper-body lifting? I’m not sure what it will be, but I’ll let you know how it goes! I need to do some research and talk to my doctor, but I think it’s time. Let me know if any of you mamas have any tips on getting started!
