I have had a wonderful couple of days and will probably do several posts in the next couple of days, so be on the look out. For now, I'm just going to do a very simple, random post, just to put some thoughts out there.
*Barclay is laughing now! It's so cute. It's pretty regular too. He is also cooing and ah ooing and so on.
*I got to see my sweet friend Catherine this weekend and it was soooooo good to have some girl time.
*I've decided that I am going to join a mommy group somewhere.
*My husband, baby and I went to Merlefest this past weekend. It's a Bluegrass festival up in the mountains. It was awesome!
but....I do have to say that EVERYTHING takes twice as long with a baby. I was worn out before we even got there. Not to mention my three month old was in a field in 100 degree heat! Yikes! Stressful!
*I am so mad at myself because I know I have gained weight since the birth of Barclay. Uggg...I am an eating machine and never feel like I have enough nutrients in me. I am drinking TONS of water and still feel completely famished about every two hours. I know I'm a nursing Mom, but yikes! After trying on clothes this weekend, I'm convinced that I need to do something drastic in my lifestyle. Basically, I need to eat better and more balanced.
*On that same note, this is the first year EVER in my life (and I know this is rare) that I've ever felt nervous about being in a bathing suit. Shopping for one was HORRIBLE, and I've never had that experience before. Not because I think I had a great body, but just because I've always been confident. My confidence (usually at a nine) is probably at a 4 now.
*On that note...after not having to suck in for almost 10 months, I don't remember how to suck in. In fact, I feel like I don't have those muscles anymore.
*I realized how much I wish my little sister Georgia never got her license, because I miss her because she doesn't need me to cart her around anymore:-(
*Barclay slept pretty amazing the past two nights. I don't know if he's finally getting the hang of it or it was because we WORE HIM OUT at Merlefest. We'll see tonight...
*I am IN LOVE in love IN LOVE with Barclay. Geez I feel like I have spring fever love for that sweet boy. I seriously think about nothing else.
*I've not seen Noah as relaxed and happy in quite some time as he was this weekend. The Bluegrass revived his soul.
*I have so many fun and funny posts to do in the next few days.
*I am hoping to get my hair trimmed this week.
*Today I bought a cashmere sweater from Bananna Republic regularly $130 for $16. Just in time for...summer? Oh well, next year I'll be stylin:-)
*I need to go to bed and stop rambling...
*Oh, and I'm super siked about my first Mother's Day!
