No Elastic!

Thursday, April 6th, 2006

I just want to share my exciting news that I am only 6 pounds away from being my pre-pregnancy weight! Horray! And I’m wearing a pair of pre-pregnancy pants! Yes, they were loose on me before, but the fact that I am wearing something that isn’t elasticized is extremely exciting to this momma!

Such a card

Tuesday, April 4th, 2006

I cannot express how thankful I am that spring seems to have sprung. It shouldn’t be too much longer now until the snow is gone and Markus and I can get out of this house! I’ve never been so pumped to get out and walk: and I had no idea I would ever feel so trapped in this house. It’s crazy how spending a few days at home without going out makes you feel. Luckily Markus and I went shopping for a little bit today. We had to return a couple packages of newborn diapers: he’s almost too big for them already!

It’s also hard to deal with not having Clay here to help. I am fine if it’s just during the day while he’s at work, but if he leaves for the evening (like last night for youth), it’s rough. It’s not that I can’t take care of Markus by myself: I’m able and willing. But it is very hard not having him here to support me. And I have to do this every Monday? I don’t know how I’m going to handle it.

Jude, Rob, and Anna are coming for a visit next week! I can’t wait! I haven’t seen them since June: Anna was only 6 months old then. She is such a card, and I am so excited to get to know her better. It’s too bad they live so far away, but awesome they can make it out for a visit. Markus can’t wait to meet you guys!

Nine – Eight!

Monday, April 3rd, 2006

Markus had his two week check-up last week. He weighed 7-11 when he was born, and now weighs 9-8: he has gained almost two pounds since birth! Babies are expected to be back to their birth weight at their two week check, so Markus is doing a bang up job at eating. He’s like his dad I think :)

He gets cuter every day, I’m sure of it. And I love him a little more every day.
