Jack is 7 weeks old and last night he slept for NINE hours!!!! And I was asleep for 8 of them! Yep, I got a FULL night's sleep without waking up once. I feel GREAT today! Woo-hoo! He went from 9:30pm until 6:30am. I went to bed around 10:30pm. What a great night! Let's see if we can make this a habit :-)
Steve and I went out to lunch, today (the kids were there, too but I like to pretend that they weren't and we were on a date) and after we ate, we sat at the table and signed all of the closing documents for OUR house and dropped them in the FedEx box on our way home. The sellers will be signing it on Friday at 2pm and then we are officially first-time home owners! (And we went to this place called Zaxby's and it was goo-ood!)
I can fit into some of my pre-baby jeans, finally. Not all of them (you know how it is - all the jeans have the same number on the inside but some always fit looser, and some tighter - I'm fitting into the looser ones in my regular size). I am so excited. This just about doubles my wardrobe. I've been so sick of the small number of things that have fit for the last 7 weeks. Just about 10 more pounds to go to be exactly where I want to be!
I've been walking at least 2 miles every morning. I get a lot of funny looks. I have Steven and Gabby in the double stroller and Jack in a carrier on my chest. I've seen several people point at me when they drive by. It's like they think I can't see them. What I want to know, is who's idea it was to put Burger King right next to the track on base. By the 3rd lap (around a half-mile track), a chocolate shake starts sounding REALLY good!
Jack's eyes are still bright blue and the roots of his hair are coming in blonde. His eyes are BEAUTIFUL! I know his eyes can still change, but if I end up with a blue-eyed, blonde-haired baby, I might start wondering if he got switched at the hospital. Not that I'm complaining, I just don't know how they came from me and Steve!
Okay, I'm done boasting. We're about to move, and no matter how well planned, or how short a distance, moving is ALWAYS stressful and somethings always go awry. So, I thought for now I'd focus on the positive because we all remember what happened LAST TIME WE MOVED!
And now you're all caught up!
