It has been way too long since my last blog. I feel like I don't have much to talk about, even though I know there has been a lot going on.
We just got back from a wonderful family vacation in sunny Florida. Overall, I'd say it was a success traveling with a 3.5 month old, but it wasn't exactly easy. I found that vacation with a baby was pretty much like regular life, except beachier. Still had to work around her feedings and naps, and of course by the end of the day I was exhausted.
Charlotte is still quite unpredictable. I thought I had her figured out, that she'd gotten easier...then I had to go and screw up life as she knew it by taking her on vacation. She had been doing a lot of screaming for a few days, still does, but I'm figuring it out. It is usually out of sheer exhaustion, and she almost prefers to be tucked into bed instead of in my arms. I know that is a good thing, but tonight as I put her in bed while she was still semi-bright eyed, I felt funny. I like rocking her to help her drift off to dreamland. I love snuggling the little peanut head.
Speaking of peanut head, she's still as bald as a cue ball. She has some soft bunny like hair on the back of her head that gets messy when she sleeps. When will she get hair?! And she's skinny. What a funny baby.
In other skinny baby news, I am not skinny. I decided it's time I actively start watching what I eat. I LOVE food, and I love to eat. And I'm hoping that I'll feel a little less frumpy once I lose a few lbs. In all honesty, it's only just a couple of pounds. So I'm thinking there will be a lot more working out to be done to get things looking a little better. It's like I was pregnant in my thighs, upper arms, and face.
Over the last few months I've tried a few things that I thought would help me feel more refreshed. New mascara, self tanner, a new hair color...
None of it really worked. Although the self tan is to die for! Best one I've found!
Anyway. I'm a glass and a half of wine in, and it's time to party instead of blog. Now replace "party" with "sleep".
Have a great weekend. :)
