- This may come as a shock to all of you, but apparently if you eat cookies, brownies, ice cream, and burgers and do almost nothing as far as exercise goes weight does not just drop off of your flabby tummy. Now that you have gotten over the intial shock of that idea, you should also know that apparently breast feeding is amazing because whilst I haven't done that great in the past month-ish, I didn't gain weight either. I consider that a ridiculous victory because I have never been able to eat whatever I wanted without having to face serious consequences weight-wise. Is this what it feels like to be a normal person? Weird.....Okay so it isn't like I eat crazy every day, but I also haven't been like 'I had a cookie yesterday so I shouldn't have a brownie today'. I am like 'fuck it, get that brownie in my face!'. So looks like I am exactly where I was a month ago when I wrote this post....well I guess a little below that because of the whole drop before my life insurance physical. So I have 25-ish pound to go and 5 months......and still 2 1/2 miles because, like I said, I haven't even pushed myself to exercise regularly. I promise though, I will get busy on this.
- Building on that previous thought, I bought a bike trailer for nugget! And it was kind of an epic find. I was at Target on Monday grabbing a box of diapers and I thought 'I should go check and see if that bike trailer is still on sale'. I saw it on sale a few weeks ago for $20 off...but it must have been my lucky day because it was on Clearance, for $80. Which was 50% off the original price. Woohoo!
- Tomorrow night is Summer Brewfest and in turn, the second time Andy's parent's will be watching Jack......and I am nervous. I mean I am excited about the beer obviously, but I am nervous because Jack still isn't doing awesome at the bottle thing. Well that isn't exactly fair. He seems to be flip flopping a bit. Yesterday he took four ounces, the day before he took 8! woohoo. But basically he isn't being consistent. Andy said that the biggest difference between now and the first few months is that Jack doesn't cry or scream when you give him the bottle. We're only going to be gone about 4 hours so I know he'll be fine. My prediction is that he will not take anything while we're gone....but I just hope that he will cooperate because *gulp* we haven't exactly admitted to our parents that Jack regressed back into not cooperating with the bottle......it just felt like admitting defeat. Anyway fingers crossed that they don't even notice and they just have a great time. My plan: feed the shit out of him....wait that sounds totally wrong...before we go. Then when they arrive tell them to put him down to sleep at 7:30 or 8pm and then hope he sleeps for a good hour or two, then, in theory he will only be awake for about an hour before we get home. I'll report back on this one.
- On the previous topic, I must buy a bag of pretzels tonight and make some pretzel necklaces. I have learned our lesson from Brewfest 2009. After a while, you can't taste the difference between the beers. Thus pretzel necklaces.
