It's Like Christmas!

So here lately I felt like I have been stuck in my weight loss goals. I haven't stepped on the scale in probably almost a month and I haven't been tracking my food like I should so I was pretty convinced my weight was starting to creep back up.

When I would ask Matt if he thought I was gaining or still losing, being the smart guy that he is, he turned it around on me and asked what the scale said. Smart smart man I have there!

Well, this morning I thought I would be adventurous and take out a pair of jeans I haven't fit into in well I really can't remember but it has been over a year. I know super adventurous right! Any way, drumroll please....THEY FIT!!!!!! WOOHOOOO!!!!!! I am so super duper pumped.

I know I still have a long long way to go but it's a start and a darn good one at that.

The DC trip was good, a nice little getaway. Reagan did amazing in the car only having 1 meltdown on the way there. She still slept through the night and stayed pretty much on the same schedule. She got to meet 2 of her Great Aunts, her Great-Great Aunt plus 3 of my cousins.

This week at the sitters I took a can of formula over with Reagan along with my pumped milk. I still fully intend to keep pumping but in order to make the milk go farther she can give Reagan a bottle of formula a day or every other day. The formula was free so I'm not out anything and Reagan seems to have no issue latching back onto me. Somehow, I'm not sure how we ended up with such an easy going baby who just rolls with things.

First road trip

This week has been crazy at work. We had a career day for area ag programs then I was out of the office doing farm visits. Now Reagan, my parents and I are on our way to DC for my cousins baby shower. This is also the first time most of my Dad's family will meet Reagan. Of course I will take tongs of pictures and let you all know how the almost 7 hour trip with an almost 3 month old goes. You can tell by the picture she is thrilled!

2 Months Old Say What!

I have been meaning to sit down and write this post for oh 2 weeks but I just haven't had the time. Seriously, I don't know what I did with all my spare time before Reagan came along. To think that I thought I was busy before, ha! But hey, the house cleaning and laundry will always be there, Reagan won't be a cuddly baby forever.

We were supposed to have her 2 month check-up on the 6th but she had a cough all week and on the 1st Jennifer sent me a text and said she was having coughing fits and spit up probably 2oz of her bottle. She thought maybe I should get her checked out before the weekend in case there was something we could do that way we wouldn't have to go to the emergency room or urgent care. Another reason why I love our sitter! Well turns out she had a slight cold and some congestion but nothing we could really do besides saline drops in her nose. Since she was old enough and healthy enough they ended up doing her 2 month check up. Bad mom that I am I didn't write down her length or head measurement but she weighed 11lbs. 5.5oz. My little chunk is growing good! I need to figure out how to get on the Dr.'s office website and I will be able to get all the info I want.

Pumping is going good. I usually get 3 15-20 minute pump sessions in at work getting about 5-6 oz each time. I'm glad I had started stock piling while I was on leave because Thursday was the first time I had to take milk that I had pumped when I started back to work. I know the midwife said to put the milk in 3-4 oz packages but I think it makes it easier on Jennifer if I put 5 oz in since that is what she is eating these days. Hopefully in my next post I will give my thoughts on some of our favorite items that we use and some that are collecting dust these days.

Now for some pictures!!

Look who got to meet her, Laura from Adventures of an Infertile Myrtle!
Keeping my fingers crossed extra tight for good results at her u/s!!!

Got the stroller out for the first time since we had gorgeous weather this weekend.
She loved it!

Jennifer has a swing and she said Reagan loves it.
I bought this one off a friend for $15, and you can obviously tell
she loves it. Also we were finally big enough to fit into some
OSU clothes.

2 Month picture. Matt says someday she will hate me for all the
bows and such I put in her hair but I just can't help myself!
