Happy Birthday to me!

Hubby went out this morning and got me donuts for breakfast and we did lunch at my favorite Chinese place - yum! Tristan even slept thru the entire lunch which was nice. We're having a few neighbors over for appetizers and cake tonight. Pretty much a low-key birthday, but given it's the third in 2 weeks' time, I guess that's to be expected. I think starting next year, we need to move my celebration to August 20th just to give us a break from celebrating.

34 is treating me pretty well so far I must say. Two beautiful boys, an amazing husband, a great mom out here helping us adjust. Only downfall is the crazy, insane dachshund, but I guess you can't win them all, right?

As of this morning, I'm happy to report that I'm w/in 11lbs of my pre-pregnancy weight. How is that even possible? And yet, all of my non-maternity pants won't fit for weeks. I'm living in yoga pants for a while, hoping I won't need to dress up anytime soon cause I have nothing to wear!

Breastfeeding is going better too, Tristan's latch seems to be getting much better and I don't need the nipple shield as often anymore and the nipple ointment stuff really works well. Whew!

I know I still owe everyone a post on the emotional side of things, mulling it over in my head, hoping to get it commited to text soon.

Happy #34 Birthday to you! This will be a year that flies by..all in a good way though :-)

Now your not allowed to "diet" while breast-feeding, right? So does that mean the weight just starts coming off? I'm really hoping I'm not stuck with a lot of extra weight that I have to struggle with... although having these babies because of it makes it worth it.

I'm still trying to figure out the basics of breastfeeding. I hadn't even heard of a nipple guard before last week. I hope that all falls into place and makes sense soon.

It seems like you're really into the groove already after just 2 weeks from giving birth and life is treating you well- (I'm hoping I see daylight within the first month sometime) you have two beautiful boys and a great husband. I couldn't be happier for you Nickie.
