Smiling




I don't get to post much these days, usually I don't have anything to really blog about since I am home everyday. But now I have something GOOD!

Lately Carson has been SMILING at us...it is so sweet!

Sleeping: He is doing better little by little....he sleeps in his nursery every night now; he sleeps really well from about 9pm - 1am give or take depending on the feeding schedule. After we feed him around 1am he will sleep about 2-3 hours at a time. Some mornings around 4 or 5, I give in from exhaustion and bring him to bed with me if he doesn't want to go to sleep. But that is a last resort, I hate him being in the bed with us, #1 its not safe and makes me nervous, #2 I feel like I can't move an inch or he will wake up.

He is growing a lot (I can tell by how heavy he is getting). But I always forget to weigh him. He goes to the pediatrician in October so we will see for sure then.

ME: I got to have a girls' night with Alison and Kelly (this was the longest amt. of time spent away from Carson, but I did ok); we went to see CHICAGO at the Fox, and it was really good. There is a new play on Broadway in NY that I would love to see called Rock of Ages, its an 80's theme. But I doubt I will be going to NY anytime soon and it will be years before that show comes to ATL. Oh well!

Also, I am so anxious to wear my wedding rings again, I don't know why but I still can't get them over my knuckles, it makes me so sad. I asked my Dr. when to throw in the towel and get them sized and he said to wait a few more weeks. Ugghhh!

I am about 10 pounds away from my pre-pregnancy weight, I gained way too much weight and am paying for it now. I can only wear dresses and shirts that are bigger in the belly and maternity capris and gaucho pants. I tried to put on a pair of jeans that I considered big before I got pregnant and I couldn't even get the zipper started. I also put on a lot of weight in my butt and thighs, so I may be in maternity stuff for a long time b/c I really don't want to spend $ on myself right now.

It takes a while to get back into "normal" clothes. Just try to be patient. It's hard to be patient when you look in your closet and see those jeans you loved and haven't worn in so long, hanging right next to maternity clothes that you're still in, but no more pregnant. But that day will come when you get in them and are so proud of yourself. You're looking good, though. Carson's not even 2 mo yet and you're only 10 lbs. away.... not bad at all. Don't you love those smiles. It's just a little "thank you" for the 9 mo of carrying him and all the hard work since he's been born. I can't wait to see ya'll. -Holly

Girl, you are doing great! It also took me a while to get my rings back on. Your body is still adjusting to all the changes it has went through. I wore maternity clothes for many months after Maddie was born. It felt like my body would never go back to the way it was before, but I promise, it will! Just don't do what I did. I sat around all day holding Maddie and eating anything I wanted like I was still pregnant. When I went for my yearly in November 08, (Maddie was born in Jan 08)I was a pound heavier than my six week post partum check up!! I was completelty mortified! Pretty soon your little one will be so busy, he'll keep you running, and all that weight will fall off. Tell Cory Chris said hi! We love and miss you guys!

Don't stress over the wieght. It will come off. Like Crystal said, when Carson is all over the place, the weight will come off like never before! I can't tell you how many times I have said I wish I still had my dance schedule like I did when I was in high school. It seemed so easy to do it all then! Sometimes just to get off the couch when Evan goes to bed is a challenge in itself...I am pooped! One thing I have noticed since having Evan is that even though I may weigh less that I did pre-pregnancy (one year later, did not happen quickly)my body does not look the same, weight is gone in places where it once was and is present in places I never had it before. With that said, to see Evan and know he is mine- it's all worth it! James loves me just the same! You look great! Being a mom is agreeing with you!
