some pictures

Thanks Chari for the photobucket info - I did order more photo storage but still waiting for it to show up. In the meantime, here are some pictures uploaded via Photobucket (Chari's suggestion!)

The baby is so good!  Last night she did a nice 4 hour stretch.

Yesterday I tried to hop on the treadmill to see what it would feel like (after I wrote that blog post).  It was weird, so I got off.  My favorite comment right now is from Michelle Simmons that she swam 9 days after her daughter was born  - Dara Torres did it, so she figured she could too! Only Michelle! I love it!  I would LOVE to go swimming.

This picture shows me what I need to work on - nasty back thighs (see my left thigh there? gross) and posture!  Shoulders back! Sit up straight! Have any good thigh tighteners?? Do share!
That's my sister on the left.

I'm really starting to watch what I'm eating now so that I am sure I'm eating nice and healthy and can drop this baby weight! It's always cool to see the initial weight loss - 15 lbs both times with both babies, but then the hard part is the rest!

I love this picture of Bill and I (and Kara) - it was about an hour after she was born and we look and are so happy! (and exhausted)

  4. You are welcome!! I'm getting ready to put up a giveaway for shutterfly within the next day or so and there are 3 winners. It's good for 40 (I think that's right)announcements. I hope you enter (if you are still needing/wanting announcements).

    I'm so glad to see pictures up close of her! Wow, she's so beautiful! Looks like she is going to look more like you than Nick does :-)

  5. I love the pics. my favourite 2 are Kara asleep on her tum and the family shot - total euphoria at that stage!

    What is a binky?

    I managed to walk about 2 miles today and managed the whole day on my own - well had the girls round for coffee in am and met friend for walk in pm, but did all the feeding, settling, getting into car etc tout seul!

    The initial weight loss is great. I'm having to eat so much to keep enough energy and figure if I lose weight then great, but if not will just have to wait. I've only got about 7lbs to lose to get back to pre-preg weight so I guess once I'm healthy and exercising again it should just come off.

    Oh and I don't know a lady alive, except perhaps Paula Radcliffe, who doesn't own a pic that points out a 'sore' spot! I think you have a great figure and you'll be back to your pre, pre prego shape in no time at all too.

    Take care,

    Kaz

  13. I think you can excuse the posture - those couches don't do anything for anyone's posture!! :) Kara looks just like you. Swimming in a week, right?
