A Carly Picture Blog :-)

Wednesday, March 13, 2013

Hi everyone!
I'm behind on posting my weekly fitness blogs. I just don't have the time that I use to, imagine that?
I am keeping up with my nutrition and daily exercise. Exercise is more intense some days than others, but every day something gets done, even if it's just a brisk walk. I'm losing weight, and I can tell I'm losing inches, so it's all good.

But I am stressed big time these days. I just need someone to add in about 4 hours to every day! I'm on day 4 now of only getting a max of 4 hours sleep at night. It sucks. I need to find a way to go to bed earlier, but it's just hard. And when she gets me up at 4, and I get her back to sleep at 5, it just seems pointless to go back to sleep for an hour. I know it's not, but I have a hard time because I just think of everything I need to do.

Hubby reminded me last night that this time will pass before I know it. I hope he's right. I've also been feeling stretched thin with school and it's feeling like such a chore. That sucks, because I have always enjoyed my classes and all that I have been learning. I want it to be fun again and not just something else on my "to-do" list.

OK, so that's enough of my b*tching for now! How about some totally cute pictures? I did a little photo shoot this morning. Carly is now 7 and a half weeks old. She's doing well, as are all the children.

Her coming home from the hospital outfit finally fits!

She's starting to notice her hands...

Carly and Preston checking out her new mobile...

Enjoying some tummy time. She rolled over twice, but I think it was just because of the way I had put her up on her elbows...

Alright, that should be enough cuteness for you all for one day!
Hugs to you all!

    Your DH is right. This will pass and all too soon you will actually be missing the sweetness of those early morning yumm-fests. Enjoy it while it lasts!!!! My niece is going through the same thing. Newborn, school, and work! I know it's hard but it is all so worth it! You are doing GREAT!!!!

    AWWWW... Love all her different faces. She is so cute, nope not enough for me, need more cuteness. Sorry to hear about school. I totally understand what you mean about feeling as if it's another chore since you used to enjoy it. Perhaps you can take another semester off? Spring is almost here although they are saying possible snow, IDK. Wife and I are heading to Atlantic City this weekend. Two nights. No kids. We are both looking forward to it.

    Take care and stay healthy

    emoticon For such a Splendid Cute Carly Blog, loved it. Your daughter is adorable, she is definitely taking a big interest in hder big wide world. emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon emoticon
    Do try not to stress are you taking a nap when you can. even just a feet up session for a short while, a little musical interlude, a piece of fruit a cup of tea or coffee just for 20 minutes (YOUR TIME TO DEEP BREATH AND RELAX) and then go back just a little more refreshed. Maybe massage your hands or feet with lotion or moisturizer, JUST those special few minutes for you. It will tell you ," I am worth this" and go back feeling a bit less stressed and ready for the next few hours of obligation. Just break it up. emoticon emoticon emoticon

    Adorable Beth. Your hubs is right, Carly will be sleeping longer for you very soon. Until then it's all about the power naps! She looks a lot like you, has your smile and nose I think. :) I sooo wish I could take her for a night. I miss the baby stage, and crazy as it sounds, you will too. emoticon

    P.s. Have you tried giving her a little baby cereal. That might keep her tummy fuller for longer? Idk, I always did that, haha.

    Love you,

    Awww....she's getting soooooo BIG!!! She's adorable!!!

    And mom, I can tell ya that you'll look back at this time in your life & smile...cause when I just read what you're going through, well, I went through nearly 33+ years ago w/my youngest! She wouldn't sleep at night for nothing! (and she's STILL a night owl, to this day, mind you!) I felt like a walking zombie for the first 6 months of her life...oh, I remember it well! And I remember barely functioning during that time cause I was so tired! I wasn't in school then, but I was working.

    Oh, honey....hang in there! emoticon

    And emoticon on getting ANY exercise squeezed in & emoticon on losing them inches!!!
