2 weeks!

2 weeks postpartum: (yes, my hair is all "diana ross" up in here)

not too shabby! it'd probably be better if i had some self control- but come on, who else was going to eat the rest of the pumpkin bread? who i ask? seriously.

alex managed to keep her adorable weiner shoes on the other day:
...for approx 3 hours or so while i was out & about-but the she decided to poop eeeeverywhere, so off they came- also, that cute little onsie is no more. seriously. half of it is stained yellow from her poo. nasty.
i can't believe she's 2 weeks already! she has her 2 week appt tomorrow so we'll see what she weighs & all that jaz- she must have gained something because her NB clothes are getting a littttle snug.
she's still doing fairly well sleeping wise- she does take about 1-2 hours to ACTUALLY go down at night- which has me dozing/crying in the glider till about 11:30-12am but once she does go down she's good for at least 3-4 hours. whew. she's been awake more during the day which i cool- i also try to keep her awake for brandon (poor guy, he misses her so much during the day) so yeah.
so all in all- things are well! it's nice & "fall-y" here so i'm going to dress alex all warm & snuggly this weekend & try & get some pictures- yay! hopefully we can get a few family pics (thank you camera timer)
Pin It!

I cannot say I tried it, but I have heard that putting BM poop stained clothes in the sun gets it right out. Something about the bilirubin. You and Alex both look great!

ah, the poop stains :) I know all about it, especially when I have my little guy in the car seat and he does his business, the poop somehow goes all the way up to his neck... lol. Anyways, I 'fix' the stains by spraying some Oxi Clean Baby (got a spray bottle of it from Babies R Us), I spray the stain and let it sit for a bit, than toss in the loundry clean up - all the clothes that I thought were rouined are back to perfect! It even got all the yellow spits off white onsies. One of those good products that actually work :)

I've heard the same thing about the sun and I may have to try that Oxi Clean trick when my time comes. ;-)

And lookin' good with the post-partum pics! (and hey - I don't blame you one bit for the pumpkin bread - yum!)
