Introducing Sophia Kathleen
Friday, August 10, 2012
Miss Sophia Kathleen, also known as Sophie, Sophie-Soph, and Baby Soapy (pronounced by big brothers who substitute P for F sounds) was born on July 11!
Mommy at 39 weeks - right before heading to the hospital. Total pregnancy weight gain: 25 pounds, exactly what my doctor recommended.
Mommy, Daddy and Baby Sophie! Staying active (running, walking, Zumba) throughout my pregnancy made the labor and delivery SO much easier.
Pretty in pink! With big brother Caeleb before church - 3 weeks old. I am having too much fun with her cute dresses and hairbows.
I am so in love with this little girl! She is eating really well and sleeps well, too! My almost 1-month old sleeps for 6 hours straight, which is awesome for a breastfed baby. Sometimes it's hard to believe I am the mom of 3 now and I know planning for exercise will be trickier, just a regular day can be overwhelming when they are all crying or pooping at the same time.
I am ready to ease my way back into exercise - I start training for an 8k on September 15, so I want to be running a quick mile by then. I miss running so much - last night I ran for 5 minutes on the treadmill just to see if I could, I almost cried because I missed it so much and it felt so good. I'm looking forward to losing the baby weight and more - my 3 kiddos deserve a healthy, active mom!
