Oh, Hello

b2 Yes, it has been over four months since my last post. I have started this post numerous times, but I’m finally getting around to posting! I have both enjoyed and missed my time away from my blog.  I have been spending my time either working, taking care of Breck, squeezing in a workout, running, and just staying logged off the computer. My time away has left me with all kinds of new ideas to blog about! I am happy to connect back with my readers, if anyone is still around!

 

Since my last update so much has changed! Breck is now almost 6 months! He is so much fun! Seeing him learn something new everyday is exciting! He is such a happy baby. Don’t get me wrong, he has his moments of crying fits and whatnot but I know how lucky I am to have a fairly easy baby. He sleeps through the night most nights. He is a big boy weighing around 20 pounds! He is in 6-9 month clothes, but mostly 9 month. He started solids a few weeks ago and that has been a fun adventure! I started making my own baby food and still I’m still trying to perfect the art of pureeing. He loves green beans, apples, and rice cereal. He isn’t a fan of mangos and is unsure about sweet potatoes and pears. This weekend we will try avocado!

I have been taking him to swim lessons and tumbling class (which is mostly tummy time). He absolutely loves both! There is a local place that offers both classes free until age 6 months, so our time is almost up! I want to continue swim lessons but I think I will hold out until the summer when my rec center has classes. We’ve learned some fun activities from tumbling class to do at home so I will continue to do those.

Since my last postpartum check in I have improved my running speed! I am happy to say I hit a pace I haven’t seen in such a long time- 8:38! I think I had a smile on my face for two days from that run! I haven’t been getting to the gym as often as I’d like. I try to run 3 times a week but more often than not I usually get 1-2 runs in. I also try to get to the gym once a week but sometimes that doesn’t work out (I used to by a month pass for the classes but now I pay the one time class pass to save money since I know I won’t go 5 days a week).  I have been doing T25 instead of going to the gym. I don’t really follow the plan. I have been doing most of the beta series 2-3 times a week. I like that T25 is just 25 minutes. It makes it easy to get really good workout done within a short amount of time!

I am actually 6 pounds under my pre-pregnancy weight and I think it is due to muscle loss. My goal has been to get those muscles back! Lifting a 20 pound baby around should do the trick! 🙂 I will be honest, I was nervous about how my body would look after having a baby. I am completely happy with how I look and feel. I worked out through my whole pregnancy, ate healthy foods (most of the time!) and it has paid off. I am amazed at what the human body can do!

I am still working part time and have been enjoying the balance. I remember I was worried about working and continuing to breastfeed. I set a goal for myself to make it to 6 months and see how it goes. I’m happy to say as I’m only 2 weeks away from the 6 month mark and I can make it work for 6 more months to make it to my big goal of breastfeeding for a year. Most of the time I am pumping while driving (and eating lunch!) in between appointments. Ideal? No, but it’s what works for me! I always feel like a super mom!

So there that’s my update! Next week I will have posts up about running, and my favorite baby items for the first 6 months!

What have you been up to? Please leave a comment on what other posts you’d like to see, miss, etc! I’d love to hear from what readers I may still have!
