Project 52 - Week 3

Bimmer is such a growing girl! She is hell-bent on not staying a teeny baby for long. It breaks her mommy's heart!

This week, she started taking 4 ounces in some of her bottles. And she can even hold her head up for longer than 15 seconds at a time during tummy time! Whenever Puff is holding her and trying to do something (ex: making a bottle one-handed) she likes to practice her neck muscle skills and "head-butt" her daddy. Her hair is starting to get lighter too. And her hematoma on her head is almost totally gone. Yay!

She still loves to be held, which makes my life a bit difficult during the day to get anything done. She did sleep in her swing for the first time this week though. Um... never mind that I had to hold her for a good half hour first to make sure she was in a deep sleep. And we locked it in a stationary position, so there was no actual swinging. But it was a nice break for me to actually eat some lunch, take a shower, and pre-write a blog or two!

Quick update on my recovery... My incision is healing really nicely and in general, I feel pretty good. Puff and I have been taking walks with her since she was 8 days old, so I am slowly getting some light exercise. I am off the pain pills, but lifting or bending or stooping is still awkward. I had gained 48 pounds with the pregnancy and am down to only needing to lose about 18 to 20 more pounds to get back to my pre-baby weight! I know it will take some work once I am cleared for normal activity, but dropping that much in just 3 weeks is definitely a good morale boost!
