I took this video last Friday – Joshua is already ready to “go” :
At 5 weeks, Joshua now weighs 13 lb 2 oz. His 1 month checkup is on Friday, so we’ll find out how long he is too.
Last night, Joshua slept an eight hour stretch – from 8:30 pm to 4:30 am. And then from 5-8am. This mama’s pretty happy!
I went out for the first time all by myself with all three kids. I know you’re probably thinking “WHAT? It took her 5 weeks?!” But between trying to recover and just get things under control at home, I had no desire to tackle outings until now – without my husband that is. 😉
So yesterday, we went “out” to the chiropractor. It was a short trip, but it went pretty well. And my back definitely feels better now. My big boy did a number on my poor back when I was pregnant with him. I couldn’t wait to get to the chiropractor!
I feel like I am slowly coming out of the fogginess that comes with having a baby. Things are getting clearer. I am feeling more human. More like myself! I have had 3 pretty good days now. I’ve done chores, cleaning, laundry, even extra stuff like finally manage to get a few thank you notes out. Plus I managed to get some exercising in yesterday and today! I feel fantastic about that!
