From One to Two

Wow life is so much busier with two little munchkins! All you Mom's of two + I have even more respect for you. While I know one kiddo is challenging, two is MUCH harder. Now don't get me wrong I'm loving life right now. My little guys are both such lovers and pretty easy, but I am going to have to get used to this whole out numbered thing!

Today is my first day alone with the two kiddos. So far it is going great. I got probably 5 hours of sleep last night so not too bad. Baby JACK (yes I forgot to share his name in the last post) is going through a growth spurt and nursing every 3 hours at night. Before he was going 4 to 5 hours at night, but I'm not going to complain he is such an easy baby. I'm proud of myself for making it through the first two weeks of breast feeding (the hardest part) Jack is doing great with it so we are not giving up. Next week I'm going to let the hubs give him a bottle of breast milk for the first time. It will be nice to be able to get a break once in a while.

In other news I'm still wearing maternity pants. Bahhhh.. I hate it. I think I would fit into my pants I had before I lost weight last year so I should try digging those out. If thats not good motivation to lose this weight I don't know what is. I also started logging in my fitness pal today. I have it set for 1800 calories since I'm nursing. I will see if thats enough and adjust it as necessary. I'm still too nervous to post my numbers on here. I will post before pictures soon I promise I just have been crazy busy lately. As for working out I'm going to start walking more this week. Then I will start my new workout program 3 weeks from now at 5 weeks post partum.

Now how about some pictures??

Anyways, I will get back to blogging more regularly soon! I am still working out a routine! I hope everyone has a great week!!


  1. Ok. Let me start off by saying that I am so sad. The pics aren't showing up for me. There are only boxes with little red x's on them. Don't worry it is probably just my work
    I bet you've got your hands full. Two lil ones to watch is quite a task, I'm sure. My mom says that once the younger baby is big enough then the older child can start helping keep the baby entertained and such.
    Gurrrrl,I wore my maternity pants until post partum month 5!hahaha Ain't no shame in my game.

  2. Dang I can't see the pics. Awww 2 is such a transition. Love you girl.

  3. I can't see the pictures either :-(

    Way to go on nursing! I want to warn you though, be very careful limiting your calories. My supply dropped drastically when I started limiting. I suggest not limiting and track what you're eating to get an idea of how many calories you're eating to get the supply you have then go down by 100 or 200 every week or so to make sure you don't lose it. Ok, that's my assvice :-)

    Yay for a good baby and some sleep!

  4. No pics here either. Go girl, nursing isn't for everyone so for those of us that can make it through those two weeks deserve a pat on the back. I am on week 7 (almost 8) and going strong. I have a friend on week 2.5 and about to quit. I am in my maternity pants and my baby is 7 weeks. I don't have any more fat clothes so it's this or buy new (which I don't want to do). This is my motivation to lost this last 20lbs. BUT I won't post the weight I gained or the weight I was on day of delivery or currently. I don't know if it's because I am embarrassed or ashamed. Yay for an easy baby. Congrats!!!

  5. Being outnumbered is no thang, you'll get used to it quickly!! Yay for breastfeeding! Such a worthwhile challenge! Dont push yourself to.lose weight too soon, it'll happen quickly w/ breastfeeding!
