Day 1: At the Gym

Today was my first official gym visit! Elaine slept soundly from 8 PM until 4 AM this morning, so after our 4 AM nursing session I was wide awake and ready to go! The gym opens at 5:30 so I snuck out of here about 5:15. I was able to get in a 45 minute workout before heading home to relieve John! One trip and I already feel a lot better about myself!

I don't know that I will make a habit of the 5:30 visits - I think I will just take it day by day to see what works for our schedule. Luckily, I can call the Child Watch the same day to reserve a time - so I should have no excuses for not going.

I hope to lose about 50 pounds over the next year; set a healthy example for Elaine; and get in a few hours of "me" time a few days a week. We have a treadmill at home, but just being at the gym this morning with the music going and not having to listen for my sweet babe was a much better workout and release for me.

I'm going to notate how often I go, so I'll be sure to give an update in November!

As the World Turns

It occurred to me today that it has been over a month since I last posted anything! I believe everytime I *think* about posting Elaine does something to distract me. Yes, let's go with that... I did manage to make her another little dress like the one that Janet sent in the previous post. They are sooo cute! I still want to make more for next summer!

She is growing up ever so quickly and changes on a daily basis! She started rolling over a few weeks ago and the doctor informed us that it was time to wean her from the swaddle. The thought brought me to tears in the doctors office - but now all seems to be fine. We have a little stomach sleeper and I love getting her dressed every night in her little footie pajamas!

Speaking of feet... She has recently discovered hers and she spends a lot of time simply admiring them. She enjoys chewing on everything and quickly pulls everything within reach to her mouth like a little ravenous being. This week she has taken a liking to people's faces and she enjoys reaching and grabbing and exploring. She has become quite the companion and even allows me some time to sew. We also joined a gym last week and tomorrow will be her first day in their child care center. She can go for up to 2 hours per day while mommy works out! What a great deal, right?!

I just love the little girl - and am happy to say I am still very happy with my decision to stay home with her. Most days are simply delightful - and on the not so delightful days she usually shoots me a smile or a little giggle to get me through...
