I didn't realize howlong it has been since I updated! Baby is doing great! We just had his two month check up yesterday and he has almost doubled his birth weight. He is now 8 lbs 10 oz! The adjustment with four kids has been like nothing. Declan is such a good baby! He is so alert and doesn't fuss much at all! The other boys are really good with him! It's been nice so far!
I have decided not to return to work. We have a lot of appointments with specialist and I would be away from work more than I would be there. We are having therapists come to the house to work with his hand, which bends sideways towards his thumb. They also want to make sure he is meeting certain milestones with his missing arm. We are trying to make sure he doesn't fall behind developmentally in any way. We are going to Riley's Children's Hospital in Indy to see a pediatric orthopedic specialist next month. So things are going well.
As far as my weight, I am still down 5 lbs below my pre-pregnancy weight. I haven't been doing anything like I wanted to, but I really haven't been sitting around either! We are out of town for a family reunion but I have decided I am going to really start kicking butt on this, not just weight loss but health overhaul!
I have been really worried about my oldest son and his health. He isn't very active and he eats a lot more of the foods he doesn't need. So I am trying to incorporate healthy eating into family meals. We just recently bought a dinner table big enough for all of us to sit at, so instead of eating in front of the TV we are sitting together at the table. I think that has helped a lot. And most of thetime Declan is in his swing facing the table while we are eating!
I am not on my computer so I will be posting pictures later! Goodluck to all on the challenges. I wish I had of made it online intime to participate! But I am going to start some type of challenge starting next week! This week I will be working on portion control!
