One day at at time

25 days post partum and my weight loss has stalled. I have 10lbs to get to my pre-pregnancy weight. I am trying not to stress about as I know the old saying 9 months to gain, 9 months to lose. :)

Before I go future, lets sprinkle some cuteness into this post of Birdie. Jillian has already obtained the nickname of Birdie as when she gets hungry her little lips look like a birds mouth.  She is a good baby, even if she tried to stay awake last night after eating at 1AM. Even though she is cute baby smiles just don't have the same impact when mommy is tired.

She likes to eat every 2-3 hours, her night time schedule is a little more stretched out which I am thankful for. Bedtime (feeding) is at 9PM, she then sleeps until 1AM. On  a good night, she will eat and go right back to sleep and sleep until 4AM. She then wakes between 7-8AM to eat one more and back to sleep until about 9:30AM when she is up. Did I mention how thankful I am for the night time schedule, as during the day her eating and sleeping is really random. Sometimes, she sleeps and hour other times not at all between feedings.
After, I posted last week my back decided it was going to go out on me.  I took a few days off from walk and started back up on Sunday, walking 25 minutes. Yesterday, we went for a family walk and I logged at least 30  minutes. I didn't track the distance, but enjoyed the walk outside while Evie practiced riding her bike. We took a break at the park to nurse Birdie and while Evie played and then walked back to our car. 
The goal this week is to focus on food. It was my husbands birthday last week and I may have eaten a little to much, hence the reason the scale is not moving.  11 days until my post op check up and I hope to be cleared to start running.
We are in our last week of summer vacation in Washington, then the kids head back to school and my husband heads back to work (paternity leave is over). I look forward to getting into a routine as the fall weather approaches. 

Are kids already back to school where you live? I feel like Washington state is the last to go back to school.

    She is adorable. But, I agree with you on the night time thing...no matter how cute when a parent is tired we just really want the cute babe asleep!!
