long time

wow it has been a long time since I updated
I have been busy taking care of my little mama, we go on walks just about everyday, weather permitting and she naps most of the day. When she is awake though she is smiling more and cooing and she can see much better now. He changing table downstairs is right next to the wall with a banner that has American flags on it (believe me I did not decorate, we rent), but anyways she loves to stare at it. Her hair is getting longer and she is getting chubbier.
We went to the Dr. Thursday for her 2 month checkup, she weighs 12 lbs 9.5oz and is 22 3/4 inches long. She is in the 90th percentile of her weight. I am putting her on light formula now and only feeding her once a day. She cries a bunch more because she is always starving but I tell her if she ever wants to be a model she will need to lose some serious weight, her goal weight is 8.5 lbs.
her are some updated pics.

never-ending battle

With babies comes fat, and rolly polly stomachs. I have recently joined weight-watchers (which I have done many times in the past) but I feel committed this time. I still have about 15 lbs to lose from the baby, and then I would like to lose another 50 or more to look good. I know I just had a baby and it takes a long time to lose the weight, but I can't always have Teagan at my side to justify my obeseness. My first week on WW, I think I did pretty good. I started off good, writing things down, and counting, then we went to Syracuse for the weekend, and went out to dinner and drank, which was not good. But then I got a GI virus and had diarrhea and couldn't eat for a whole day so that counter acted the binging. I still managed to lose 3.2 lbs, which is great, because I want to average 2lbs a week. I feel much more self conscious now than before the baby though. Jr is forbidden to touch my stomach, which makes him want to do it even more, especially when I am sitting down, which is disgusting. I need to think positive, and destroy the mirrors in my house.
