Not much new stuff to report really. I am back at work (I am a waitress) 3 nights a week. It has been a little rough for me and Mindi alike. I cry every time I leave my little bundle, and Mindi is stuck with the baby alone for 4-8 hours, depending. That last part may not seem tough to anyone else that has a partner with a 9-5 job, but we are used to being together (the three of us) all the time so, well, it is different for us. If I am ever going nutso because the baby is screaming and I can't figure out why, I can usually hand him over to mindi for a few moments of sanity recuperation... and, vice versa. But, with me off serving other people besides my baby and Mindi (wink) Mindi has to fare it alone. Some nights are better than others, as would be expected.
As some of you may recall, I was doing the South Beach Diet a few weeks back. I highly recommend this diet to anyone who wants to either lose weight, or simply form better eating habits. It is really a great diet, and I have been successful at it a number of times, but for some reason, my body wasn't having it this time. I got pretty frustrated after dropping a mere 4 Lbs. over the course of 3 weeks. (Typically, 3 weeks of phase One would have had me at least 10-12 Lbs lighter). I decided, that since I REALLY want to lose weight before I get pregnant again, I would try something else. So, I ordered MediFast. It is basically a low calorie shakes and bars deal. I am beginning my third day on the diet today. I ordered the 4 week plan, and when I got the boxes of food in the mail, I basically stuck 5 mix packets together and tied them up. So now, I have this box of "food" sitting on my dining room table of little hot-cocoa looking packets in bundles. It is... interesting... You can see below, that each bundle is an entire days worth of food (minus a "lean & green" meal that I prepare myself). I really hope it works- I am getting sick of the flabbies...
We also attended our childbirth class reunion! That was fun! There were only 4 couples in the class, and one of the couples was, unfortunately, a no-show, but it was nice to meet the other 2 babies and parents! This picture is a great one showing just how short Mindi and I are. Of course, the other parents were all fairly tall, but I bet you that Harris will be as tall as the tallest guy in the picture... our donor was that tall...
I see playdates in our future...!
I figured I would add these last 2 pictures because they are darn tootin' cute!
