Best weight loss plan ever!

Apperantly, all I need to do to lose weight is to get pregnant and get diabetes. This morning, I am officially 20 pounds lighter than when I got pregnant! Holy cow! It really doesn't look like I gave birth last week, at all. The tummy is still quite squishy, but on the whole, I'm feeling pretty good now.

I finally broke down and gave him a pacifier last night. He wasn't quite sure what to think, but finally quit gagging on it and went to sleep. Until I laid him down. So he ended up sleeping cuddled up next to me, where he's been every night since he was born. Even in the hospital he wanted to sleep right next to me. Funny kid! I'm not sure I want to use the pacifier a lot, but we'll see. Some kids just want to suck more than others...

But he stayed awake this morning for a good 20 minutes, just looking around, all quiet and cute, before nursing to sleep. And he's actually sleeping in his bassinet right now! That's a first for him. It's been either curled in the boppy pillow, or in my arms for naps so far. So this has been an exciting day. I got to eat breakfast before 10, and even took a shower and shaved my legs - discovering I can bend over again has been wonderful. Rediscovered some cute jeans I forgot I had, and am lamenting my shortage of shirts that fit my slightly bigger baby feeders....

Leg shaving and cute pants - yeah, I'm looking forward to that too! Congrats on the awesome weight loss and the bigger baby feeders. :-)
