Yes you read that right, I said chunky monkey. The little lady who had to go in the hospital for jaundice because she was on a hunger strike is now over 10 pounds! She gained 25 ounces in 11 days!! She was in the 50 percentile for weight and 75 percentile for height at her one month check up last week. Hooray!
At my appointment I had lost 20 pounds but that means I have 20 to go. I was cleared to work out but don't have time for the gym quite yet so on nice days I've been taking charlotte for a long stroll. I haven't lost much more though because our fantastic friends have brought food every other night since she came home from the hospital. I'm most definitely not complaining about this in the least. As are more than grateful!! I've feasted with reckless abandon and only feel a teensy bit bad about it. After easter I think I will tighten that up too since I will be cooking for us again. The only other interesting thing I'd like to remember for the future is that the line down my belly is starting to fade from the outside in, meaning areas covered by a bikini are now gone but it's loud and proud still down my tummy. That's opposite of what I would like but I'm really just glad it's going away. Also my rings still are tight some days and that's annoying. Oh and at first my eyes seemed messed up but that's gone now too. It's a crazy ride, this mom business, but it's so much fun. My mom keeps telling me to chill and not worry about figuring everything out because the minute I do, it will change. Nothing has been further from the truth this week note to self: listen to your mother!!
Here is her one month picture!
