It's official!

As of Tuesday, the baby weighs 10 pounds 4 ounces, and the dog weighs 9 pounds 4 ounces... the baby officially outweighs the dog, and it only took 8 weeks (well probably only 7, but I didn't get to weigh Fynn last week)... I'm so proud :) 
How is it that Bitty currently weighs more,
but the dog still looks a lot bigger?

And yes, I know that there are many babies born weighing more than my dog... which blows my mind, and makes me greatly respect their mothers.

Stuff... Cause I'm not creative enough to come up with a better title right now


  • I did my first post-baby workout yesterday.... yeah, yeah I got the "go ahead" to workout two weeks ago, I've been too lazy busy to workout. But with 4 weeks until I return to school, I have to find SOME way to fit into at least some of my work pants, cause I'm too poor cheap to buy new fat pants.
  • Okay, so when I said I did my first workout, I mean I did 3/4 of a workout because I was in the middle of Jillian Michael's Yoga Meltdown workout when Bitty woke up screaming... and it was another 2 hours before I took my shower, which is so, so gross. Whatever, 3/4 of a workout is MUCH better than nothing... right? 
  • I feel like crap right now, just got back from the drs with a diagnosis of mastitis. Got some antibiotics,but until they kick in I'm going to be a feverish, exhausted, nauseous mess... did I mention that it hurts? Cause it does... really bad!
  • I also just sent out a parent e-mail letting them know how long I'm going to be out for and who my sub is... except I sent it to last year's parent distribution list... because I'm an idiot. Good thing I'm not going back now, the only thing I would be good at teaching is how to be a fool. 
  • Did I mention that my house is a mess? I'd blame it on the infection... except it's been bad since the weekend and I've just been to busy with sub plans and then getting sick to do anything about it... pretty sure the kitchen smells... and I pretty much don't care, because I'm going to go take a nap while Fynn's still sleeping

Vacation.... is over

We spent last week at the lake, with my in-laws. It was perfection. Always someone on hand to snuggle a sleeping baby (or settle down a fussy one) which meant I got to read a whole book! And sit on the dock soaking in the sun! And get thrown off a tube in the middle of the lake! (which actually kind of  hurt since my lack of exercise for the last 3 months has lead to a severe lack of upper body strength...I got a nasty scraped elbow from desperately trying to stay on the tube, luckily my awesome brother-in-law kept pulling me back on the tube so I didn't make TOO much of a fool of myself) 




Anywho. It was amazing. I got to sleep in every day because Drew took Bitty downstairs for her grandparents to spoil her while I slept in. I got to relax and just hang out, without having to worry about the baby because they brought her to me every time she needed to eat, but otherwise took care of her.








Bitty stuck her itty-bitty toes in the lake, which she enjoyed, and she wore her sick sunglasses which were super-styling, and excluding one night, she slept like a champ.




Check out her face... that's my baby


But now? We're back... and Drew's at work... and I have to take Bitty into school today to meet with some coworkers and set some stuff up for my sub (did I ever mention that I'm on maternity leave for the first 3 1/2 weeks of school??? Sooooo happy for that!). The relaxing is over, as is, apparently, her great sleeping cause Bitty was up every 2 hours last night, probably as her way to share her displeasure at vacation being over. I know Bitty, I feel the same way.

One Step Forward, 18 Steps Back

Lesson learned: Never give your baby credit for sleeping 5 hours a night... it will come and bite you in the butt. 

The beginning of last week I was all excited. For 4 nights in a row, Fynn slept for 5 hours straight. It. Was. Beautiful. And naive Mom over here was thinking how much she had grown and how I could really get used to this.

Cue harsh slap in the face.

Thursday night she was up every 2 hours. 
The same Friday and Saturday night.

Last night? Every. Hour. And. A. Half. SERIOUSLY?!?!?!?!


She also usually gets up at 6 and then takes a nap around 7.... it's now 8:30am and she's bouncing all over the place. And squawking at me, just to let me know that she's enjoying this whole sleep situation.

Good thing she's cute, this morning it's all that she's got going for her.

10 minutes later...

Timing

These days I never know how long things are going to take, and it really frustrates me. I used to know exactly how long it would take to get ready, to get out of the house, etc... these days? Not so much.

It always goes one of two ways. Either I give myself too much time, and end up ridiculously early for things... or I'm scrambling at the last minute with a screaming baby and end up late. I can't win. 

The big variable? Bitty Baby of course. Whether we're on time for things completely depends on what she's doing and what she needs. For example, last Tuesday. We go to our breastfeeding support group Tuesdays at 1. Last week I started getting ready at 11 (because that's what we do). I showered, got dressed, dressed Fynn, took Zoey out, Fynn and I ate a quick lunch and we were ready to go. Not. We needed to leave by 12:20 to get there on time. At 12:10 Fynn decided she was hungry again. Then I realized the diaper bag was out of wipes. And that I didn't have a spare outfit for Fynn in the bag anymore. 3 trips upstairs, a screaming baby, and one knee bashed into the car door later and we were on the road... at 12:40... which meant we got there 20 minutes late. Luckily group is all new moms, so they totally understand... but it's frustrating. Yesterday we started getting ready at the exact same time and ended up being ready to go at 12. What gives? 

Obviously it's not a huge deal when I'm going to new mom groups or to dinner at the in-laws... but pretty soon it is going to matter. Going back to school is going to be the biggest one. How on earth are Drew and I going to get ourselves, Fynn, and Zoey ready for the day and get to work on time? Seriously. I don't see it happening.

It's Ok Thursday

Its Ok Thursdays
This week I'm saying "It's Ok"


  • that I'm really glad Drew's cousin had a boy the last week... because it means Fynn remains the only girl great-grandbaby in a group full of boys... and I like that :)
  • that I'm putting off changing Fynn's (very stinky) diaper so I can write this post
  • that I really really don't want to go back to work. I love our daycare provider, but I don't want ANYONE having my baby all day besides me... I really wish there was some way we could swing having me stay home with her... but Drew won't even consider the idea, and I know that we realistically can't afford it... boo. 
  • that I killed ANOTHER plant last week... I really do have a black thumb.
  • that it took 5 weeks for me to finally create and order Fynn's birth announcements. Mom Fail. However, they're here now and amazing!

Smiles

Of course I couldn't get pictures (that would be asking too much) but Fynn has started really smiling. She's had a few in the past, but I could never tell for sure if they were real smiles or just gas or a reflex or something.

However, I'm sure now. The other day we were dancing around the living room with music blaring. I was singing along, swaying her back and forth and I held her up and blew on her belly. The grin was instant. I did it a couple more times and each time she got a huge grin on her face. Most beautiful smile I've ever seen. Not gonna lie, I may have teared up a bit. 

Now I want to make her smile all the time! She's not doing yet in response to us smiling at her, but I really hope that comes soon. It's crazy how fast time is flying by and how much she is changing so quickly. Yesterday was 6 weeks... how have I had a baby for 6 weeks???? 

In other news, I had my 6 week check up today. My doctor wrote a note for me to miss the first 4 weeks of school, which means I wouldn't go back until Fynn is 12 weeks old. Such a relief! I know no matter what it's going to be hard to leave her, but this way I have 6 more weeks to get used to it and she will be 6 weeks older when I go, which feels a lot better. Now I just have to wait and see if the admin okays my leave.

Postpartum Bod

Pre-pregnancy I was in pretty much the best shape I've been in since high school. I had lost a lot of weight and was in a good routine of working out at least 5 days a week. I did a great job the first 30 weeks of pregnancy where I continued cardio, light weight training, and Zumba. But then week 30 hit, and so did the fatigue of late pregnancy... and I just couldn't do it anymore. An hour of exercise would take me a full day to recover from. 

Luckily between my first trimester morning sickness and exercising as long as I did, I didn't gain too much weight during pregnancy. My grand total was 33 pound which is right within the 25-35 pounds my OB recommended. One week after Fynn was born I had lost 13 pounds which felt amazing. When else in your life can you lose 13 pounds in a week and have it be completely healthy? Going from this:





To this:
One Week Postpartum - I look about 5 months pregnant here


In a week was pretty encouraging. By week 2 I had lost a total of 15 pounds. While the weight loss slowed way down (since, you know, I didn't have a 6 pound human being and all her accompanying fluids come out of me that week) I still felt good that the number on the scale was going down.

I knew this wouldn't continue until I got to my pre-pregnancy weight (but a girl can dream... right?) however I was hoping it would continue a few more weeks, at least until I'm allowed to work out again. This whole 6-week recovery thing is hard after 38 weeks of pregnancy. I feel well enough to exercise, but I've been told not to, so I'm holding off. At the same time I feel fat and gross... and there's nothing I can do about it!!!! I can't exercise AND I can't diet because I'm nursing and dieting could affect my milk supply. We had enough struggles establishing breastfeeding without adding supply issues in. 
6 Weeks Postpartum- getting better!

Today is 6 weeks postpartum. I have my check up tomorrow, and then I can work out. However, I'm still in a tricky situation with weight loss. I still can't "diet" since I'm nursing (though cutting out all the oreos would probably be a good idea). I also have to be careful about exercising too much because that can affect my milk supply too if I burn too many calories. My plan is to start out slow, I had planned on rejoining my gym at this point, but realized that it's impractical. I can't go during the day right now, because I have Fynn and there's no way I'm sacrificing any of our family time at night. While I'd like to think I would go once I'm working again... I know that for the first few months I'm going to be booking it out of school at the end of the day to pick up my baby. So for now I'm going to stick with at home workouts. Mostly jogging and workout videos (Jillian Michaels can kick my butt better than any trainer at the gym). 

She's so worth it though! 

My goal is to lose all the baby weight by the time Fynn is 6 months. I know it took 9 months to put on that weight, so I know it will take awhile to take it off. I'm trying to be practical about it... but it's so hard to be patient!

Babywearing

No, not here, I'm guest posting for Melissa today over at Adventures with Captain Destructo about babywearing. You should head over there and check it out. Seriously, it has pictures :)

Sunday Social



If you could only eat one thing for the rest of your life, what would it be?
Macaroni and Cheese. Yum! Loves it. It was the first thing I asked for in the hospital to eat after Fynn was born... and I may have ordered it for every meal while we were there... maybe. (it was THAT good)

What's your guilty pleasure/comfort food?
Right now it's Oreos and milk. But I only like them when the Oreos are REALLY soggy from the milk. Usually my comfort food is something chocolaty and disgustingly unhealthy.
What's the weirdest/craziest thing you've ever eaten?
Um... I'm sure I've eaten something gross when I was a kid (I hung out with a crowd that liked to dare each other to do weird things) but the worst I can remember is eating leaves.
What foods do you avoid at all costs?
Anything with "squishies" in it. To me that things with tomato, onion, peppers or other chunks in it. If they're cooked right I can handle it, but chunky spaghetti sauce? Gag me. Cucumbers on my salad? Omg, so gross. I have texture issues with food, if they're the wrong texture I just can't do it. Therefore, I am a REALLY picky eater, but I'm getting better as the hubby makes me try more and more things. 
What meal reminds you of your childhood?
Burnt steak and lumpy mashed potatoes with canned corn. No joke my dad can't cook on the grill without burning it, so that's how I always thought meat was cooked when I was a kid. 

Share one of your favorite recipes and the story behind it.
I don't cook, unless it's in a box or involves 2 ingredients or less. However Drew makes this really good Pesto Chicken Pizza with premade dough, pesto sauce, grilled chicken, and provolone cheese. Amazingness.

Why I'm Tired This Week... and other random ramblings

  • Zoey has had a rough, rough week. It started with her getting fleas which lead to a flea bath (this dog HATES baths) and flea meds and horrific itching. Although the fleas are officially gone, and have been gone since that first night where we stayed up really late killing them all, she still itches like crazy from all their bites. I feel awful. Her skin is red and itchy and she can't sleep at night because it's so bad. Along with that she's had vomiting, poop issues. some of her hair is falling out and she is miserable. I feel so bad for her because there is nothing else we can do. We went to the vet the other day who said the fleas are gone but we got two different meds to help her out and we have to feed her boiled chicken and rice for the next couple of days to help her get better. I feel awful, we should have left her home that night, but I'm also tired because between her and the baby, someone is constantly up and making noise during the night

Fighting sleep
  • Bitty Baby is a mess this week. Most days she's been eating every 20-40 minutes... driving.me.nuts. She's also fighting going to sleep now, even her naps. She always napped great, but this week she only catnaps and then wakes up still tired and fussy. I'm hoping this is just a phase or a growth spurt. On the bright side? She's sleeping longer at night, as in Thursday night she slept for 4 1/2 hours straight! The downside to longer night sleeps? Having to get up in the middle of the night to pump because I hurt so bad... so I didn't really get to sleep much more, but it's hopefully a sign of things to come. 
  • Speaking of Bitty Baby, she's now up to a chunky 8 pounds! I know it doesn't sound like much, but it's almost 2 pounds above birth weight... though I do find it hilarious that my almost 6-week old baby weighs less then many newborns. Whatevs, she's cute and healthy, so that's all that matters. 
  • I discovered rhythmic gymnastics and synchronized swimming on the Olympics the other day. Addicted. Completely addicted, and I'm not entirely sure why.
  • I'm stressing about next week because we have so many appointments and meetings; Monday: chiropractor. Tuesday: Breastfeeding group and Zoey's grooming appointment. Wednesday: 6 week postpartum check up (which I'm praying ends with a doctor's note to be on maternity leave the first 4 weeks of school). Thursday: meeting with my new assistant principal (at 9:20 in the morning... the earliest Fynn and I have tried to be anywhere so far). It's just a lot of things to organize, make sure I have everything for the baby and trying to be on time with it all... eeek
  • My little sister is turning 23 next Friday, which freaks me out... because that means that I'm turning 26 in less than 3 weeks... wow, we're getting old.

GlassesUSA.com

This is a sponsored post by GlassesUSA.com. While the information is theirs, the ideas and opinions are all mine! 


I've needed to wear eyeglasses or contacts since I was about 10 years old. Finding frames the look good for more than the five minutes I spent trying them on in the store was tough. Since I couldn't really see the frames on myself (since I had to take off the functioning glasses to try on the empty frames) I always ended up with glasses that were okay, but not great. Like these bad boys that I've had since college. 

Well, when it comes to buying new glasses, GlassesUSA.com has a great fix. They have a feature called the Virtual Mirror where you can upload or take a picture and try on different frames. So cool. I tried it and had a blast trying on different frames and styles. Also handy, since buying something like glasses online can be a little scary if you're not sure how they will really look on your face. I also love that it will let you e-mail several pictures of you trying on glasses to a friend. Too much fun! Please pardon the no make-up, messy hair look. The baby was finally sleeping and time to write this post and play with the virtual mirror was limited! 


Try out the Virtual Mirror here: (no seriously, it's fun!) 



Buying online eyeglasses from them is easy, and you can save a lot of money. They offere a 110% lowest price guarantee which can make you feel good about the price AND they have a 100% satisfaction guarantee which can make you feel good about being satisfied with your purchase. They also have a generous refer-a-friend program that rewards you for spreading the news about your glasses purchase from them.

So, why am I telling you all this? Mostly because it's awesome and I wanted to share, but also because GlassesUSA.com is making it even more enticing to order glasses from them. Readers of My Show can take 15% off AND get free shipping on your whole order over $50 by using the coupon code: FS15. OR You can get 10% off any order of prescription glasses with the code Blog10. Either way it's an even better deal! 

If you need glasses, this is the place to go for quality, well-priced eyeglasses.  Check them out on their website or you can find them on Facebook and Twitter.

The Guilt Plant Offs Itself

Remember the Guilt Plant? (yeah, me neither... which could be half our problem) Remember that I kill plants? 

I swear this time it's not my fault! I was sitting in the living room nursing Miss Fynn when I heard a thump and a clatter in the breezeway. I jumped up thinking either Zoey had gotten in trouble or a really stupid murderer had just blundered their element of surprise. When I got out there I found this: 

It killed itself! Jumped off the bench and offed itself!

Part of the problem may be most likely is that it hadn't been watered in... weeks? Months? No idea... I know I haven't watered it since Fynn was born and for a few many weeks before that. But still, did it really need to go to these extremes?

Yet another plant lost due to my black thumb... oops.

Feeding in Public

I am loving this whole breastfeeding thing now that it's actually working.  I love the contact I get with my baby and the way I don't have to pack up any food when we leave the house... but there is one aspect I'm stressing out about.

Feeding her in front of other people.

I get it, I'm using my body to feed my baby, and that makes people feel uncomfortable... which is why I feel uncomfortable about doing it in front of others. 

The first 3 weeks, whenever she needed to eat, we retreated to another room if there were people around. But it felt so depressing... so wrong. I felt like I was being shunned, even if it was technically myself doing the shunning. After those first weeks I started staying around people, but using a nursing cover to cover both of us completely. And I feel good about that. I get to stay around friends and family, and still feed my baby. 

BUT.

So far I've always done it in my own home, family members homes, or the car... so I don't know what to do when we are really  out someplace. If we're with people I'm not that comfortable with or out someplace where I can't retreat to the car. The issue hasn't come up yet, as the only places we go are friends/family houses, my breastfeeding support group (where we all whip 'em out as needed), and quick trips to the store, but I know I can't avoid it forever. I plan on nursing for the first 6 months AT LEAST, the first year hopefully. That's a long time, and I'm sure we'll end up in plenty of awkward places to nurse. That being said I know I have to pump and bottle feed when she goes to daycare... but I don't want to feed her a bottle when I'm with her, which leads me to my concern.

Other moms who nurse, what did you do when you were around others/in public? Was it an issue? Am I worrying about nothing? 

Advice and stories would be greatly appreciated!

1. What is your favorite Fall activity?
As weird as it is, the start of school is my favorite part of fall. Okay, technically it's still summer when we start, but to me it is the "start" of fall. My love of it is probably why I became a teacher.

2. Do you follow a football team? if so which one and why?
Um... no. I live in Maine, therefore I guess I root for the Patriots... but I couldn't even tell you one member of the team and I only ever know how they're doing if they make it to the SuperBowl

3. What is something fun about Fall in your area?
The smell. There is something so crisp, clean and beautiful about summers in Maine. It gets that nice cool feel. Then there are the tress. I'm no treehugger but I love the gorgeous reds, oranges, and yellows we get around here in the fall. It's beautiful, but I don't understand all the "leaf peepers" who drive all the way up here just to see it.

4. Fav Fall outfit staples?
Layers. I tend to wear short-sleeve tops with a sweater over it. This is Maine. Which means the temperature fluctuates a lot during the day. Not to mention that in the fall I'm usually in my classroom which is bipolar. On a 50 degree day my classroom could be 30 degrees or 70 degrees... all depending on its mood.

5. Thing you are looking forward to most about this coming Fall season?
All the firsts with baby Fynn. I can't wait to have her play in leaves, dress up for Halloween, have her first Thanksgiving. All of it! 

6. Favorite Fall holiday? Traditions?
I love going apple-picking in the fall. We don't go every year, but I love it when we do. And we are totally taking Fynn this year, even though she will be too young to really appreciate it. Along with apple picking come the apple crisps that we make. Nothing feels like fall like warm apple crisp and vanilla ice cream.

One Month!

I can't believe it, but baby Fynn, you're one month old today... where has the time gone? I know... every parent says that, but seriously... how did this happen?


It is amazing how much you have changed in just four short weeks. I can't believe this is the same creature we brought home from the hospital. So, here's what you have been up to this month and the things I want to remember about you in the future:


This month you:


Are still wearing newborn diapers and clothes... and some of them are still big on you. Hopefully soon you will fit into some 0-3 month clothes. You currently weigh 7 lbs, 10 ozs! It's still so little, but it's so much bigger than you were. Everyone who sees you thinks you're so much younger than you are and comments on what a little peanut you are.


Sleep a lot, obviously, but you sleeps like your daddy. Your hands are sprawled above your head and you likes for your legs and feet to be uncovered. Most new babies love being swaddled. Not you, you wants your arms and legs free to explore. You sleep amazing during the day. You go to sleep on your own, and sleep for solid periods of time. At night though... that's a different story. Some nights you sleep for 4-5 hours (woo-hoo!!!) at a time, wake up, eat, and go right back to sleep. Other nights you're up every 2 hours and it takes an hour (or more!) to get you back to sleep. Thank goodness you're cute little girl, cause Mama is tired. Oh so tired. 


Nom on your hands, arms, my shoulder, and whatever is in front of you when you're hungry. I nicknamed you Woody Woodpecker from day one because when you gets really hungry you start bobbing your head and bashing it into whoever is holding you. 


LOVE your daddy. You looks all around for him when you hear his voice. While I'm jealous, it also melts my heart to see the two of you together.


Make a LOT of noise, including squeaking like a little mouse and "pre" screams that say "hey, I'm here, come pay attention to me before I start really screaming" You also started making a noise this week that sounds like you're laughing.


Last week you noticed your mobile for the first time and watched the monkeys on it going around and around.


Starting to cuddle. Your hands move to my chest or neck when I hold you. When you're eating you wrap one arm around my stomach and rest the other on my chest, like you're giving me a big hug. You've also started touching my face when I hold you. The other night when I was watching you in your cradle, you reached out your little hand to grab me. 

Love bath time. You hate sponge baths, but love sitting in the tub and having warm water poured over you. 


Give the "stink eye" with one eye open and one eye closed. Also known as your pirate look.


Smile. I know people claim you're too young, and that it's just gas, but that's a lie. When I give you kisses or blow raspberries on your cheek you will grin. 




Baby girl, you have a bunch of nicknames this month: 

  • stinky, stinkbug, stinky baby (for obvious reasons)
  •  Woody (I mentioned this one)
  •  chubby bunny, chubs (girl, you can eat!) 
  • stubs (from that unfortunate time when I trimmed your thumb along with your nail. No, you didn't actually lose any of your finger, but Daddy likes to torture me with it) 
  • baby girl, Fynn, Fynn-Fynn, Fynnie 

It amazing me to see how much you're doing and how different you are. I can't believe I've only known you for one month... it feels like forever. At the same time, it feels like the past month has flown by. I feel like you were born yesterday, but you're already so big!

Friday's Letters

Dear random commentor from last week's letter,


FYI, Fynn's a girl, short for Fynnleigh... and no, I did not name her after the guy in GLEE. Yeah, that would be hilarious.


Sincerely,
Random


Dear  Twitter and Facebook friends,
Please stop ruining things for me! I tape shows and watch them later... so please stop telling  who won gold, who was voted out or what the big twist is. You always ruin it for me!

Thanks, 
Guess I have to avoid social media

Dear readers,

I love you, now buy some ads, or just do a free ad swap.

Sincerely,
Diapers are expensive yo!

Dear Oreos,

Stop being so dang tasty. I need to stop eating like 6 of you a day, but you're making it so hard! 

Thanks,
Want my pre-baby body back without doing the work

It's Ok Thursday

Its Ok Thursdays
It's ok:

  • That I totally thought today was August 3rd and thus Fynn's 1 month birthday... I had all these plans to take her 1 month pix complete with little onesie sticker... until Drew informed me that it's only the second, I guess our photoshoot will have to wait until tomorrow
  • That I panicked a little last night when my friend's 4-year-old asked how I feed my baby with the apron on... awkward, and I didn't want to answer the "wrong" way
  • That I loved my friend's answer "her boobs make milk for the baby". Awesome. I plan/hope to be that honest and matter of fact when Fynn asks those questions 
  • That I hate birds. Seriously. They drive me nuts, especially robins. Lately Zoey tweaks out barking when they're in the yard (and they're always in the freaking yard these days) which makes me hate them even more

Randoms of the week


  • I don't know how moms who formula or bottle feed do it. I have a hard enough time getting out of the house with enough diapers, wipes, and changes of clothing to make it through an outing... I don't know how moms manage to make sure they have enough bottles and formula/pumped milk to make it
  • I'm tired of cleaning the house...seriously, how does it constantly get messy? I blame Drew
  • I'm loving the Olympics... I know I'm not alone here, but I can sit and watch it all day long. Fynn and I are becoming experts on random sports. Seriously... how is table tennis an Olympic sport?
  • The town came and spray painted all over the neighborhood, in anticipation of (supposedly) paving this week... I'm still waiting for them to start paving... but at least all the orange, white, blue, and red lines/symbols make my daily walks interesting. 
  • I just coughed while typing. Fynn is on my belly, and she laughed too. Is 4 weeks too young to mock her mom?
  • I watch WAY too much tv during the day. Granted, I don't actually watch all of it, it's just on in the background, but I tape a boatload of shows and have them running throughout the day. Partially it's because it keeps the house from feeling too empty... partially it's because I love watching tv.
  • It amazes me that some babies are born bigger than my 4 week old is right now. Seriously. Fynn weighs 7lbs 10 ozs as of yesterday... that's smaller than a lot of newborns. Blows.My.Mind
