Guess who's two months old this coming week?! Crazy, right? Here's how this month has been going:
Baby J: J is smiling!! Isn't that first toothless grin just the most beautiful sight ever? He's still a hungry little man too, but his growth has slowed down a bit. (We jumped from newborn to No. 3 nappies in just 6 weeks...!) He drinks every 2 to 3 hours, so Mama's a bit low on sleep, but fortunately he sleeps like a champ in between feedings. J is just as peaceful as his big sister was when she was a baby - so blessed!
Running: I'm running again!! I got the green light from my doctor to start running again at the end of January, meaning that I'm already starting Week 3 of my 10 k training programme... Sho, time flies! On a side note, is it sad how hard core I feel after completing my 4 and 5 minute run/walk intervals...? (A lot of them are uphill, I must add. With a stroller. And a throbbing tooth. Convinced yet? Nope? Well, booyah anyway, ha!)
|Barefoot Will stepped in some thorns and braved an army of biting ants to take this photo, so please just take an extra moment to appreciate it.|
Pregnancy weight loss: I'm down 1.2 kg this month, so I've lost 12.6 kg of the 16.4 kg that I gained during pregnancy so far. 3.8 kg to go!
On a serious note, words cannot describe what a massive privilege and blessing and joy being a mom is to me. K and J just light up my life. Adventures await!
