Hey hey, happy Monday! Did everyone have a fabulous weekend?
After I last chatted with you all on Friday, Jay and I decided to take advantage of the beautiful weather and we trekked outside for our first walk with Lucas.
Lucas was great and slept the whole time, while Jay and I enjoyed a nice, quiet 45 minute walk. I really wasn’t sure how long/far we were going to travel, and before I knew it we were already at about 1.75 miles. By that point I noticed I was getting a little tired so we headed back home.
Side note: I’ve had some of you ask how I’m doing with my post-delivery recovery. For the first few days after delivering I was definitely a little sore, but I was also prescribed some Motrin which helps quite a bit. I only wound up with a super small tear (or as my doctor called it, “a scratch.” I’d say that by about day 4 or 5 I was feeling almost back to normal, with the occasional soreness when I’m up and/or moving too much. I definitely consider myself very lucky!
Friday was also the first day/night where we didn’t have any visitors planned, so the two of us never even wound up showering. We literally lounged around the house for the rest of the day, soaking up plenty of time with our little guy. Saturday was another “lazy” morning filled with plenty of feedings, tummy time, cuddles, and naps.
Cody continues to inch his way closer and closer!
When Lucas napped, we took advantage of cleaning up a bit around the house, catching up on some laundry (holy crap does it pile up now!), and a few other odds and ends. Our friends Seth & Nicole came to visit during the afternoon and then we decided to take a family trip out to Target. I hadn’t been out of the house at all for the day, so it felt REALLY nice to get some fresh air.
While we were out, we also decided to pick up some take-out sushi for dinner. Although I did have sushi early on in pregnancy, it just wasn’t the same when I couldn’t have the “real” stuff, so I had been looking forward to it for quite a while now.
Unfortunately, the sushi was a bit of a flop. Jay and I both agreed that it just didn’t taste very good…pretty disappointing for being my first post-preggo sushi experience! But ahh well, what can ya do?
Sunday was more of the same…feedings, cuddle time, and naps for both baby AND mama.
At one point, Lucas ended up falling asleep on my chest for almost an hour and a half, and since he was too comfy for me to move, I just went ahead and napped for a little while with him. It felt great…I need to take advantage of his nap times more often!
Yesterday was also a first for us over here…oh yes, it was my first experience getting peed on while changing the little guy.
He, obviously, found it amusing.
Lots of meals and snacks continue to be eaten on the floor. Cottage cheese and pineapple has been a favorite lately.
And cereal combos are another…quick and easy is the name of the game!
So this is pretty much my view this morning. Not a bad one, right?
It’s just the two of us today, since Jay is back to work now. It’s a bummer to have him leave (if we’re being honest, I was emotional about it all weekend) but we’re surviving juuuuust fine and will be happy and ready to greet daddy when he gets home today.
I’m hoping to get out for another walk with Lucas in a little while because it’s another beautiful day out there today.
Have a great day, everyone!
