Popping In – Five on Friday!

Hi long lost friends!

Wow, this blogging break has certainly been what the doctor ordered. I’ve missed popping in with updates for y’all but to be completely honest, it has been so refreshing not logging into blogger and just spending that time with Caroline Grace. All you mamas out there who can juggle work, blog and mommyhood – hats off to you! I can’t promise I’ll be updating my blog often (outside of Caroline’s monthly updates) but I will try my very best to pop in from time to time!

So what have we been up to? Here are 5 updates…

1. Working and Hanging with our Moms…

Returning to work has been so much better than I had anticipated. It’s been great getting back into my routine and I am really happy with my decision. My projects keep me really busy so I am distracted throughout the day and I come home chomping at the bit to hold my mini.

My MIL stayed with us the first two weeks after I returned to work and now my mom is with us for the next two. I love both of these moms so dang much and feel incredibly blessed that they are the ones watching Caroline while Matt and I are away at work until her daycare starts. I swear Caroline thinks she is at summer camp. Every day I get home and hear about her daily activities and it goes a little like this…”well, after you left we did morning yoga and stretched, we read books, did tummy time, played on the activity mat, sat in the Bumbo, drank all of our bottles, napped, sang songs, walked around outside, etc.” I love it and am so spoiled by them!

2. Pumping…

Many of you have checked back in on me to see how breastfeeding has been going and I can’t thank you all enough for thinking of me! I’ve been exclusively pumping the past few months and my milk production has only slightly increased since returning to work and pumping 6 times a day. On a good day I can pump about 12 ounces of milk and we supplement the rest with Earth’s Best Organic Formula. However, I’ve decided to throw in the towel and am starting to slowly cut pumping sessions out of the day. It’s bittersweet. 

3. Dieting…

I am not going to bore you with regular updates on my post-partum weight loss, but I do feel like since I dragged y’all into it with my weekly “bump dates” I owe you an update on what has happened to those 28 pounds I gained. The update is short…half of those pounds still remain and I am working my booty off to get rid of them (diet and exercising). And while 12-14 pounds may not seem all that bad, I am less than 5 feet tall and have very petite features so all of those extra pounds currently hide in my lower belly giving me the appearance that I am 5 months pregnant still. Prior to pregnancy, I wore size 4 jeans. Now I wear….maternity jeans. So that’s that. And no, I will not be posting any picture updates.

4. Matt…
Big update coming soon. Stay tuned. Proud of this man!

5. Weekend…

Dad was sad he was missing out on all the fun mom is having watching Caroline so he’s decided to fly into town for the weekend to hang with his favorite grandbaby. And oh, Lindsey got sad too so she booked a “work trip” and is staying with us half of next week. Saturday night, mom and dad have asked to watch Caroline for the evening so Matt and I could have our second date night ever. Since Caroline arrived we’ve been really bad about breaking away just the two of us so we are really excited to try a new restaurant, Baku, for dinner. We always drive by and say “we should try that place sometime” and now we are finally going to! 

And because every post needs a picture of my cute baby who doesn’t sleep anymore (early 4 month sleep regression?)…

Happy weekend!
