Happy 1 Month

Well, let me start with saying that I have made some changes around here.  After running across some of my pictures on another website, I decided it was time to start labeling my pictures...and with that, came a new domain!  After about a month of working with google to try and get this thing set up and working (long story), I am so excited that "Life as a Wife Blog" is finally up and running!
Now on to the bigger news...
As of yesterday, little babe is a month old!!!  Wow, that first month sure went by fast.  I am so happy that I have been able too spend every single day with this little guy and watch him grow over the past month.  I took Loyal to the doctor yesterday for his weight check.  Big boy weighs 10 lbs 12 ounces!
I put him down for some activity time, looked over and he was looking right at me!  He is starting to become much more aware of his surroundings.  My husband is so cute.  He asks me everyday, "Do you love him more than you did yesterday?"  ABSOLUTELY!!!
Happy 1 Month Birthday little baby!!!

I wanted to give an update for me as well now that I have hit 4 weeks postpartum.  Right after I delivered, I looked like I was about 4 months pregnant.  This is about what I had expected.  Throughout the first week, my stomach went down pretty fast.  I could see a difference every day, which you can see in the picture below.
(Sorry about the blurry pics and please excuse the mesh hospital underwear and my husbands boxers - both are a must for postpartum!)
I have only weighed myself twice since he was born.  I didn't want to put too much into it, especially since I am not working out.  At 2 weeks post I was 5 pounds away from pre-baby weight and at 4 weeks I was at pre-baby weight exactly.  The pictures below were taken exactly 1 month after delivery.
Although I am back down to the weight I was at before getting pregnant, I still have some toning up to do.  My belly is still a little mushy but slowly getting better.  I have my 6 week appointment next week and hopefully I will get the go ahead to work out again.  I try to eat well but give in occasionally.  I think that my situation is mostly due to breastfeeding but who knows.
