How is it that I went my entire pregnancy without the nagging back pain that had plagued me for 8 months, and now that Brady’s 3 months old the pain comes back? That goes against everything I know about pregnant ladies. Every representation of a woman with child has some lady with her hand on her back. Know why? PREGNANT LADIES GET BACK ACHES. But not me. Pregnancy cured my back ache. WTF.
The skinny hippo experiment has been going pretty well. We are working on reintroducing solid foods, and my weight has been staying pretty consistent. On day 12 of the experiment we had a dinner party, so I broke down and ate the delicious beef tenderloin, spaghetti squash, a few potatoes and even the world’s smallest slice of birthday cake. Much to my dismay, about 4 minutes later I started feeling sick. Not just a little sick either….MEGA sick. I had to excuse myself, because I basically un-ate everything I had put down. Whoops! It wasn’t that I ate too much, I think I just ate too fast. What can I say, I was HUNGRY!
Brady is such a smiley, happy baby. He sleeps and sleeps and sleeps, and wakes up just full of giggles. My OTHER baby turned 13 years old today. It’s really amazing how quickly time has gone by. Sigh. Every time I hold Brady I whisper quietly to him “don’t grow up too fast, buddy.”
