mommy and loralai time - we have some good laughs during the day.
mom playing with loralai.
let's see...sleep. i'm in need of it. last weekend i found myself breathing like a guppy. i had the worst cold. and still, it lingers. i have these cough attacks that make me nearly gag. pretty, huh? so at one point i was nursing the baby in the middle of the night with a mask over my face. uh huh. like the ones you see people wear when they're painting and such. you laugh. i wasn't playin'. consider the feeling of knowing you gave your baby a cold. so now this week, i'm determined to kick the cold's butt. or at least part of its butt. it seems to be a strong little cold. enough about that.
we had a few visitors last week. my mom and todd's - different days, but similar adventures. they came to love on the loralai and give me a nice wave hello. babies definitely take front seat over mamas - but how can you blame them? babies are awesome. they are, in my opinion, the most innocent thing that God has given us so far. even when she's screaming her head off or won't settle in for a nap, i can't get mad at this baby. she's just so precious. she cry cry cries...i go in to finally get her out of her crib and what does she do? smile. what a stinker.
so nothing new, really, to report. i'm considering trying to get back into shape. ha. laughable most days. b/c most days i'm so pooped by the time todd gets home - the time of day that i actually have a little bit of time to maybe possibly go for a run - that i just want to crash by the time he gets home. so today i did some pushups, did my arm weights and then went for a walk w/ loralai (in hopes that she'd sleep in the stroller for her last nap of the day - no such luck. instead she laughed at me when i would lean in the stroller to tell her to sleep. again, stinker.).
so maybe one day when i get more of a rhythm to my day - like in a few months, possibly? - when loralai is a little older, stays awake longer, sleeps less during the day - maybe theeennn i'll be able to get back into my workout routine. until then, here's to situps, pushups, squats and arm weights in between feeding the baby.
some days, while being a mom is the most wonderful thing in all the world, and nursing is the sweetest time EVER with my baby - i swear i feel like a milk cow.
who knew :)
