I hopped on this scale this morning and it is looking like I am up about 6 pounds total so far. This is exactly the amount I had gained with Noah at this point so I am really happy about this. I actually went into this pregnancy about 5 pounds lighter than I did with Noah but expect to round out at about the same final weight. I have a weird theory about lighter people gaining more weight during pregnancy...it is based on exactly zero medical facts so I will keep the details to myself! BUT, I believe I will gain closer to 25 or 30 pounds with Grapefruit versus 22 with Noah.
In other news, I feel great! My energy is 100% back and I feel strong and motivated. I have been true to my posts and have upped the hiking/walking while continuing to go to Bar Method regularly. Noah has, thankfully, embraced sitting in the Bob while I huff and puff around the Dish for an hour! My eating has been so-so but I am sort of embracing that. I don't indulge much when I'm not pregnant (wine is my empty calories), so I am taking the caloric deficit the wine left to enjoy a few more special treats.
|Pushing this guy up hills is no joke. Kristina, please come take over!!!|
|We took Noah on his first real train ride. He LOVED it and wasn't happy about the getting off to get lunch part.|
|He looked so big sitting by himself in his seat.|
|We visited Santa (before Thanksgiving...the shame!). No hysterics but he still isn't a fan of the big guy.|
|We played in Mom's boots. He gets super silly in the evening and we have so much fun watching his antics.|
|I turned 30 and was spoiled rotten!|
|Lunch at the Rosewood. Love these girls.|
|We took selfies in the mirror. Ps-my Invisalign is done, and my teeth make me happy!|
|We learned how to dip the animal crackers right in the peanut butter jar.|
|We hosted Thanksgiving and I got some very special snuggles in with baby Leonardo!|
|We took our annual day after Thanksgiving trip to Napa. That sweater looks like a tent...and I thought it was all "chunky and cute".|
|We immediately took down the turkeys and put up the Christmas! Noah was a huge help ;-). Also, toys are taking over my house...we are going to have to move to make room for all Noah's stuff!|
|Nana is tired of being told she can't eat the decorations.|
|Noah had his very first school pictures taken. My heart actually can't handle the cuteness.|
|These two continue to make my life brighter every day.|
|Yet another annual...we made our trip to San Francisco for some delicious lunch and shopping.|
|2011. Noah was all of about 4 weeks old.|
Well, I think that about gets us up to date. Hope your holidays are off to a great start!
