Just another day



Well I am feeling much better lately.  And I can pinpoint the day I started getting better as the day after I stopped nursing.  I started drying up and three or four weeks ago, sobbing, I gave my baby a bottle.  Within a week he is so much heavier.  I’m sad because I like my chicken legged baby, but I’m happy because he isn’t cranky and I am feeling much better.  I had no idea how much nursing was taking out of me.  I never had any problems with the girls.  Now he is fat and cute instead of skinny and cute.

I also have lost four pounds since starting weight watchers (the same week I stopped nursing) YEAH!  Pre-preg clothes here I come!  I had started the flex plan (a simplified version of calorie counting) but I just wasn’t getting enough to eat that way.  So I switched to core the other day and am easing my way into it.  It’s much healthier and I get plenty to eat.  Only I can’t have nearly as many fun things as I can with flex.  Oh well.  You have to grow up someday I guess.

Here is a picture I took of Emma the other day with my new camera.  I downloaded a 30 day trial version of Aperture and am having a lot of fun playing with the colors and lighting.

Here is one of Spencer (fat and cute) with a drooly face

And one of Lucy. This is a priceless shot.

Isn’t my sweetie handsome? I LOVE this picture of him. I took it the other day when he got home after ice skating with Lucy. He’s not too happy with having to stand there while I focus. But it looks just like him and I love it.

Spencer has started crawling for real instead of bounding along like a wind up toy. It’s pretty cute. He looks like a robot when he does it. Emma has started singing the songs she has learned in Primary. I tried to teach them to her a long time ago but all she wanted to sing with twinkle twinkle. But get someone else to teach it…

PS. yelling and screaming have decreased dramatically in the last three days.

  • I’m glad you are feeling better. Hope the squid juice is helping too 🙂

    Love hte pictures, especially the one of Lucy. Goodness, there are a lot of gigantic brown eyes in your house.


  • I’m so sorry about the nursing.. it’s so hard to have to give it up before you’re ready (been there twice)! But great to hear you’re feeling much better. The Lord works in mysterious ways… and sometimes not the ways we would have done it (ie…not being able to nurse as long).

    Love the pics.. keep having fun with them!


  • Well, downside is that you had to give up nursing…upside is that giving up nursing made you feel better physically (maybe not mentally..) I guess there is a silver lining everywhere, you just have to look for it.

    I LOVE those pictures. I love them all, I can’t pick a favorite.


  • It sounds like giving up the nursing, though hard, was the best thing for you and Spencer. I’m glad you’re both doing better. I bet it’s fun to see Spencer crawling around. 🙂

    Great pictures!
