Ah.....a New Year :-)
So it's 2010. Wow. What a year. This year I:
Celebrated my first wedding anniversary
Gave birth to a beautiful baby girl
Had 2 surgeries (C section + Knee)
Travelled to Portland
Celebrated my 28th birthday and my husband's
.........sure there's more
So it's been a busy year of non-stop stress, visitors, excitement and fun. Do I have New Year's resolutions? I can muster up a few.
I resolve to go to church more now that I found a Catholic church I like in Gainesville.
I resolve to spend more quality time with Franco and Mimi--and less time stressing over how clean the house is etc.
I think that should do it for now. I'm not going to resolve to lose more weight this year, because this is a goal I've had for awhile. I am 7 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight and still exclusively nursing at 5 1/2 months post partum. I am feeling awesome about that. Every week I lose a pound it seems, my milk supply has recovered from two days of bottle feeding and pump and dumping due to surgery medications. I see changes in my body every week. My Acne is improving and I'm feeling positive about the way I look. My clothes fit better than they did before the baby and I'm a size smaller than I was pre-pregnancy.
Mimi is growing and developing perfectly. I love my fat little baby. The fat rolls on her legs are so big you could hide pennies in them! She starts partime daycare next week at my friend's home-run daycare. She loves eating solid foods, still sleeps through the night and takes two naps a day. I couldn't have wished for a better baby. We love her more than we thought we ever could. She truly was the best thing that happened to me this year---or any year--she's the best thing I've ever done in my entire life and I look forward to doing it all over again someday! (hopefully not soon though!)
I'm still feeling down about the long recovery from my knee surgery. I got my surgery stitches out on the 30th and physical therapy is going great. My husband is helping out so much around the house. I have 4 more weeks on crutches before I can walk again, so I just keep trucking!
Today I got to sleep in and eat pancakes for breafast, so the new year is starting off well! We have a few errands to run, but for the most part, we're just hanging out as a family enjoying the time off we have together before we all start back at work next week.
Congrats to Rach on her baby Cameron! Happy birthday to Courtney soon, and good luck to Laura on her last few week of being pregnant!
Happy New Year! I wish you all the best in 2010
