6 Weeks Postpartum

Ok so I'm a few days away, but I had my checkup yesterday. All is well. I've been cleared to workout...starting slowly. And my doctor wants to see how I do off of blood pressure meds since my pressure has been really good. I hope this child of mine doesn't drive it up. OH MY GOSH! People say I'm the most prepared person they know. You cannot prepare for this!!

She is the sweetest baby ever...when she's asleep. She's spoiled rotten and that's my fault. But it's so easy to do when holding her calms her down. I don't know what she's going to do when I go back to work. It's going to be rough. For both of us. 

She is very alert during the day and loves observing everything. Around 10 pm we get "the witching hour," which seems to last all night. I don't know what time either of us fell asleep last night. I woke up at 6 this morning still in an upright position holding her to my chest with my glasses on. There is absolutely nothing you can do to calm them during this time. It's upsetting for the both of us. I know it will get better and I'm looking forward to it. Good thing I'm kind of used to not sleeping so I don't totally look like a raccoon. 

I bathed, fed and put her in her bassinet about 20 mins ago and now she's starting to stir. I should have napped instead of writing this post but I miss you guys!  My family and friends have been awesome in helping out. I really need someone here around the clock to help. Single parenting sucks ass!! 

Thanks for being my therapy. Nite folks. Gonna try to get in thirty minutes of ZZZZZZs. 

MUAH

Dial Vitamin Boost Giveaway

Howdy folks! Dial sent me a bottle of their new Vitamin Boost Body Wash to test out. They even sent me a few coupons to give away to you guys! Don't they ROCK?! Yeah they do, and so does this new body wash! I got the product a few weeks ago, but as is with most things that come to my house, it just sat in the living room unopened. Not because I didn't want to open it...but I've been a little short on time. Even with several snow days it seems like I just don't have enough hours in a day. Does that mean I don't wash? NOOOO. It means that this body wash just made it upstairs with me this morning! LOL I'm always skeptical about "moisturizing" body washes. I have extremely sensitive, eczema prone skin. So I really have to be careful. Even some washes that claim to be triple moisturizing dry me out and leave me wishing I had one of those cat towers to rub up against. So I finally got to test the waters with this one. Here are what this product c

Dial Baby & Kids (Giveaway)

Let me start by saying that the toddler years are fun...and a true test of faith and patience LOL! I love my little tot with everything I have in me. But every day she tests my limits in way I didn't even know were possible. I mostly laugh. She is a very spirited little girl who LOVES to be outside. I mean she will cry to go outside and sometimes all she wants to do is climb in a chair and sit on the porch and watch the cars go by. On this particular day though...(Jesus be a fence) she wanted to chase lizards, pop bubbles, shred leaves, kick her ball in the sticker bushes and throw a flower pot off the deck to see how far she could get it to go. Maybe softball is in her future, who knows LOL. That said ball ended up bursting from being repeatedly kicked in the sticker bushes... After our world wind backyard excursion, we go inside to have a snack and settle down a bit. Luckily she likes to wash her hands. I mean, she almost had that lizard! She really enjoys Dial W

Baby Magic is Here! My Birth Story

Princesses get their way. And true to form, my little princess decided that she, and only she would be in control of when she arrived. Forget about me or the doctors trying to schedule ANYTHING! **This is a long post that goes into detail. Read at your own risk.** On Sunday, July 21st...no scratch that. On Saturday, July 20th, I was having cramps. They weren't too painful and were coming only about once every hour. Honestly, I thought I had gas. I had a good bit of visitors that day and told everybody that I felt like I was going to have the baby soon. I was already on bed rest and wasn't doing much. Thanks to some awesome friends, I had enough food that all I had to do was warm it and eat it. After all of the company left, I really just wanted to lie down. So I went to bed. I was awakened maybe 3 times during the night with these "cramps." The next morning I got out of bed about 10:30am (late for me) and took a shower, hoping that the heat would soothe me.
