This week was a little bit easier to swallow. London helped mommy celebrate by sleeping for three hours over lunch yesterday - which meant I got to enjoy my first margarita in 10 months!
Another major milestone of the two-week mark is that I am officially back under my pre-pregnancy weight! Of course I've not been trying to lose weight - just the opposite, in fact; I've been eating nonstop to keep up with breastfeeding. It's difficult and sometimes incredibly frustrating, but I feel fortunate that, for the most part, it's working for both of us. L is growing fast and I am thrilled!
Ben went back to work, which has been hard but has gone better than expected. It definitely helped to have the mid-week break.
Here are some of my favorite photos of L from her second week. Apologies for the ones that are repeats from Facebook and Instagram but really, can you ever get enough of this doll?
Early mornings with this little pumpkin
