My son is now almost 8 months old, and we're still using medication to keep the reflux under control, but I feel like we're getting closer to that resolving. I can't wait!!! Right now my whole existence is wrapped up in caring for him and keeping my house going. Looking forward to that first bday!
We just returned from a two week cross country road trip from Texas to Cleveland to introduce Leo to our families, and it went really really well! He loves to be around people and go new places. We do a weekly music class, and a arts/crafts class. I am probably going to begin doing stroller strides once a week with him as well. Gotta keep finding ways to keep him engaged and happy.
Because I avoid most major allergens for Leo's reflux, losing the baby weight wasn't difficult. Now my main issue is wanting to be more toned. I've found my supply dips when I exercise at the intensity I enjoy, so I've dialed it way down, and I don't think any major appearance changes are going to happen until I stop breastfeeding. Which hopefully won't be for a while!
*********So here are my goals for the year as of right now:
to lose another 8 pounds and reach 130 before the year is over
to go to my gym more often - mini goal is to do 5 minutes of core work most days of the week
to be kinder and more patient with my husband :)
to travel to Florida to introduce my son to my family there
