It was bittersweet for me to go for a run (ok, jog) on Wednesday evening. Sweet because I am strong enough to jog at 3 1/2 weeks out from C-Section (this is not reccomended, but I am too disgusted with myself to wait). Bitter because I was made even more aware of my postpartum body as I felt my thighs rub together and plenty of jiggle (there's your TMI). So far having a baby - a 4th baby - over 30 seems like it will be harder to get back to "normal." Boo!
But, my sweet little girl makes it all worth it!

Good for you! I'm finding it hard to run after twenty months of having a baby...and here you are 3 1/2 weeks later. Oh the jiggle...I hate it.

So happy Brandon got the job. Jeans and a hat did not seem to matter. That story of the interview still cracks me up! Lets try to find a time this coming week to talk. I leave Thurs. for our trip so maybe the first part of the week? Or do you have free minutes on the weekend?

Is it so sick of me that I'm still in the hospital and jealous that you are running? I hate running but already feel the urge to work out. I guess patience isn't my strongest suit. :-) It's true, though, that these babies are worth the jiggle.

You can do it! I'm planning to bounce right back again after this set of twins are born this fall. :) Ok, yeah right. Pregnancy has already been harder this time. Does that forebode difficulty afterward too? Well, no matter. We will do it! Fit bodies, here we come!

I haven't checked blogs for a while, I am so excited for you that you guys had a little girl!! How wonderful. She is beautiful and so are you! I also really loved the photos your friend did. What a great gift to have those. :)

Hey I just came across your blog, thought I'd say hi. I just love to meet other moms, and I loved reading a little on your blog.
Your little girl is adorable!!!
I hear ya about the postpartum body, not fun! We're going to start trying for our 3rd in about 5 months or so, and I am going to be 30 next year. I'm not looking forward to this.
Anyway, it's great to meet you!
