|Apr. 3rd, 2013 @ 01:53 pm So, it's April...|
I don't update this nearly enough. Back in the day, I'd be on here updating a couple times a day, now it's every week or month. Anyways, things are good. Atticus is such an agreeable baby, though I'm lucky if I get him to sleep for four hours at a time at night. Still, he's smiley and happy. He's a smallish kid, slightly under the 50th percentile as he was 10lb 14oz at two months. He's healthy though. He got his first round of vaccines two weeks ago and other than make him a little fussy and tired for a day, he handled it like a champ. |
I'm doing well myself; I've started doing workouts with weights and calisthenics. I lost about 10lb the week of the delivery, but haven't lost any weight since then. They say breastfeeding burns 500 calories a day, but I'm always hungry (and bored, bad combination). I definitely need to eat healthier. I could get away with it when I was pregnant; not any more. The workouts should help. Once it's nicer outside I plan to go for walks but it's only been warm enough once, on easter sunday.
A friend of mine back in BC is having a baby girl at the end of May. Traditionally when a friend has a baby, I sew them a little plush sword (or in one instance a battle hammer). For this girl, I want to make a plush replica of Arwen's sword from LOTR, complete with embroidered designs on the blade. I'll post photos when its done; could take a while since I'm going to hand stitch it this time (can't be bothered to set up the sewing machine, and there's no room anyways).
Not much else is happening. My days consist of caring for Atticus, and when he's asleep I do a workout, and sit at my computer. I should be doing housework or something but I'm kinda lonely so facebook, LJ, and G+ are my ways to connect with the outside world. I then make sure supper is ready when James comes home, then we go to bed. It's kinda boring but the little guy is worth it.
That's all for now. Hope everybody is well (those few of you who still use LJ).
