It's amazing to me to see what all a woman's body goes through with carrying a child through labor/delivery. How bizarre that we can 'bounce back' in a matter of weeks as far as feeling normal again! Of course what I mean by that is how awesome it is that I can even get out and about without bursting into tears over any little thing or even how physcially I am able to do normal things around the house or my errands.
I'm also so thankful how in one sense I feel normal, yet how forever changed I am already. I love how protective I feel for Chase and my little family. It amazes me how his every need is what occupies my thoughts... how you can be so tired during those night feedings, but taking care of your baby and taking in their smell, little noises and smiles is what keeps you going. I am loving being a Momma!

I ordered some clothes for my "push present" from Nathan. It wasn't that I didn't have anything that fit, but more that I wanted (and quite honestly felt like I deserved :) something cute as I go through this time of transition with my body. I originally didn't think I looked that big @ 9 months pregnant but now that I look back, whoa...I was sporting quite the bump!! :)
As of last week, I have 10 more pounds to lose in order to be back to my pre-pregnancy weight. I'm not killing myself to get there and have only gotten on the scales that one time. I feel good and am just going to try to concentrate on being healthy right now.
