/ The RE's Muse: Zzzzzz

The RE's Muse

After 4 years of infertility, 2 surgeries, 1 miscarriage, and 19 months of high risk pregnancies, hubby and I now have two little women in our lives--one a toddler, the other not far behind. Buckle your seatbelts, it's gonna be a wild ride.

Things here have been so alarmingly normal that I haven't felt like boring y'all with the mundane details of it.

I'm actually (gasp!) enjoying these early weeks and savoring every day. It helps that a certain chunky little person has started doing two very important-to-me things: 1) she started sleeping through the night last week, doing anywhere from 6 to 9 hours at a stretch and 2) she started giving me real honest-to-goodness smiles as evidenced by the attached photo.

Those two things have gone a long way toward helping me feel really good, along with the A-Ds, of course--and the fact that I've lost 27 lbs. of pregnancy weight with 13 more to go to get to pre-baby weight. Early on, I called it the "NICU diet;" nowadays I just call it "slow going." No hurry...I try to follow the adage of 9 months to put it on, 9 months to take it off (and then don't beat myself up too much if I still don't have it all off by 9 months). At least that was how I approached it after J was born.

Tomorrow D will be 8 weeks old and I find myself wondering where the time is going.
And yes, I'm even boring myself with this post.

Oh what a marvelous picture, Dee! She looks SO MUCH like J, I think, and so much mischief at such an early age. Thanks for posting it!

Boring is underrated. Boring is GOOD. We love the kind of boring that involves smooshable baby cheeks. (Oh, the cuteness!) Glad to hear everything is so dull. =)
