More Photos

Well, Mom is on her way back to the States.  For several days, as evening would turn to night, I’d get really sad because it meant I was 1 day closer to Mom leaving.  I chalked it up to pregnancy hormones and just let myself be sad for a bit.  I’m doing better now.  And I’ve just kept reminding myself that we’ll be going home for a long visit come November.  Something to look forward to!

Here are some more photos of the last few days…

8 Days Post-Partum – Getting Ready To Go For A Walk

Joe loves being carried in his mei-tai.  I can put him in there and {snap} within a few minutes, he’s asleep.  Works like a charm.

We had a really nice walk in the park, and I was able to put my maternity fleece to use as a zip-up covering for Joe in the carrier.  He slept through the whole thing, naturally 🙂

We took another walk the next day, this time to Daddy’s office at the university…

Both of them were pretty happy!  It was so cute to see Chris taking Joe around to meet his colleagues – such a proud daddy 🙂

I’m sad that my mom is on her way back home, but I know that Chris and I will do just fine.  I also know that my waistline won’t miss her – she spoiled us rotten with cookies, pecan bars, and all manner of sweets and treats!  It’ll be good for me to focus on losing more of that pregnancy weight and not eating all the yummy goodies she kept making, ha ha!  And now that I know how much Joe loves going for walks in the mei-tai, I’ll be going out and about to get in some exercise before the really rainy weather sets in.

I’ll post more about Joe’s labor and delivery once I get a chance.  I just need a few days to settle into our new routine now that my mom has gone home {and there’s one less person to help with the baby-watching}!

Hope you’re all doing well 🙂
