My goodness. Look at us, up before 9am just because!

I can’t remember getting up before 9am on a day without a doctor’s appointment since before Lewis was born.

So many things in my life have changed since he got here, and the sleeping in short bursts thing has probably been the biggest adjustment. We usually go from 9 or 10 pm to 2 or 3 am, then another stretch until 5 or 6 am, and a final doze session until about 9:30 am.

Quite different than my previous schedule of 9 pm to 6:30 am, uninterrupted. 🙂

Gigantic pants

Kyle and I went shopping today. He needed some clothes for a wedding he is the best man in, and I was after my “interim” jeans.

We succeeded in finding all of the above all at one store, and with a sleeping baby in tow. Quite a victory.

But as I suspected, my “interim” jeans are positively gigantic. I am a full 3 sizes bigger than where I feel my best, and 2 sizes above my size immediately prior to pregnancy. Despite my best efforts to prepare for this reality, it stung a bit to see that my predictions were correct.

I don’t like being this big. I just have to keep reminding myself that it is only temporary. And despite not liking the number on the tags, I felt pretty fabulous being back in jeans in general. It helped me to feel much more normal, which seems to be the theme of the week. We’re cruising towards normalcy at a good clip. And that makes me happy!
