I know I've never been the worlds most disciplined blogger, but as you may have gathered from my previous months of posting, this recent little break had a very good excuse and her name is Olive Grace.
If you follow me on twitter you already know our little Bean was born Sept 12, at 12:30am, weighing 8lb, 13oz and 21in long. The labor was looooong but overall L&D was a good experience. I've written a draft of my birth story and I plan to share that another time soon! (Hopefully!) One thing I was definitely not prepared for was how much time newborns take up! I'm the first in my family to have a baby, and I'm the youngest, so I haven't been around babies - you know - ever. Its amazing how one tiny little human that just eats sleeps and poops can wrap up your whole day in the blink of an eye! It was a tough transition at first, but now that Olive and I are in our little routine and have had some time to get used to it, I'm LOVING being able to be home with her every day. She's so special and beautiful, and growing so quickly already. At almost 7 weeks old she already has so much personality!
SO, anyhooters, back to the reason any of you come to my blog - fashion! As you can imagine as a SAHM with a 6.5 week old, I really don't get dressed that often (though I am rocking a pretty stellar set of Owl pjs at the moment). When I do, I'm trying to figure out what looks good on my postpartum figure. I still have about 10lbs to lose until I'm at my pre-pregnancy weight, however, when I got pregnant (surprise!) I was trying to lose weight, so ideally I'm aiming to lose about 20lbs. I just had my 6 week check up and was cleared for working out, so its time to hit that new elliptical we have sitting in the garage! But in the interim I'm right in between my maternity and pre-preg clothes, making for a very random wardrobe. Additionally, nursing has created some challenges in my postpartum wardrobe!
BUT, that being said, I want to get back in the swing of this blogging thing - time permitting (I dont know how you other new momma bloggers do it!!) So here we go -- this is the closest thing I've got to an outfit photo, and frankly, Ollie's is far better than mine! :)
Who doesnt love a good 'get that sun out of my face Mom!' photo?!
Hope all of you are doing well out there in blog land! Looking forward to catching up with you soon :)
