I’m totally starting my Big Fat Dumb Self-Indulgent Pinterest Project on July 1.
My decision to start it sooner rather than later is twofold. One, I’m excited. Two, if I don’t start now I’ll just keep pinning to infinity and beyond and that’s just overkill. So beginning in July, expect to see posts relating to my dorky project!
In Mommying news, I don’t know if Ethan is already teething or what. I just know that if he’s going to chew on something, I really need it to be a teething ring and not my fingers. It’s fine for a few minutes, but it really hurts after a while. He has Hulk jaws. He doesn’t seem to be in pain or anything, so I’m chalking up the drooling and chewing to it just being what happens at this age. And crossing my chomped-on fingers that we’re not teething just yet. Please, please, please, kid, slow down.
I’ve finally broken the baby weight plateau – I’m below 145 at last! It only took three months…
My anxiety has been a lot better since Ethan started sleeping more. I still have a lot of moments of panic and I’m definitely not entirely out of the woods yet, but I do feel like I can probably get through this on my own. I’m feeling more like myself now that my weight is getting closer to normal and I’m getting a little more rest, and that is making all the difference in the world. I think part of the issue was feeling like my body was not my own for so long. Pregnancy tends to do that for you, and I had no idea how frustrating recovery could be. Once the pain subsided, I felt so impatient to get back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I may never quite get there again, but as long as I’m close, I’ll be content.
And now I’m off to watch “Bridezillas” because I am classy like that.
