7 Weeks... and a little more!

Taylor Maxine - 7 Weeks Old
October 28, 2009

Well, the fussiness seems to be going away little by little! We went to a party on Saturday and noticed how much our friends' little boy loved his floor mat. I tried Taylor's out on her today and she LOVED it!! She has been smiling and laughing a lot more and loves when we talk to her. She has completely outgrown her newborn clothes... in fact, I did have her in the pants that Jaden is wearing in the picture below (not realizing that J wore them in her 7 week picture) and they were a little snug on the belly and way too short! She is growing pretty fast! Jaden actually wore that purple outfit in her 14 week picture! This week has definitely been better than last :o)

Here is Jaden at 7 weeks:

Here are some more pictures from our week!

Jaden loves playing with HER baby Taylor in the bath now!

And now for my exciting news! Pardon me while I toot my own horn...
Before - September 8th (the day I went to the hospital):

After - October 24th:

I weighed myself last Saturday and I am back to my pre-pregnancy weight! Here is the chart that I tracked my weight gain and loss on.

The red line is average gain and loss rate for pregnancy. I am the blue line. I'm still 14.5 pounds away from my goal.

It has actually been pretty easy! I've been following Mom & Dad's lead with Weight Watchers. I am basically eating anything I want, just watching the portions. They also let me borrow their treadmill to get some walking done. Speaking of walking...

Mom, Dad, Gramps, Steve, Jeff, and I did the 5k Walk for Riley Children's Hospital.

It was a lot of fun! Mom, Dad, and I finished in 45:35. Gramps, Jeff, and Steve were a few minutes ahead of us. I told my Dr. this when I went for my 6 week post-partum check-up and he was pretty impressed at how great I was doing (had a hard time healing when I had Jaden).

That's about it! Have a great rest of the week and a safe Halloween!! Don't worry, I'll have PLENTY of pictures to post after our trick-or-treat night :o)

good for you! I wish I could lose my pregnancy weight, though my baby was born Sept 26, 2008! :( Sad I know, but it's mainly my own fault for not using portion control or watching what I eat!
