Callie's three-month birthday is almost here. Only 1 1/2 weeks away!
This is significant because she will officially no longer be considered a "newborn." Her 3-6 month clothes are already starting to fit, and I think it's time to get out the next size of onesies as well. It's a bittersweet thing for this mama because I love having Callie be my little baby and I want her to be one forever (okay not really). At the same time, it's so fun to watch her grow and change. She's talking more, is super alert and aware of what's going on around her, and is getting so big so fast!
The other reason this is significant is because three months was my personal goal to lose the baby weight. I know they say "nine months on, nine months off," but I figured that we don't have that much time before the next pregnancy, and I don't want to be carrying baby-weight around for the next 10+ years!
So I have 1 1/2 weeks left and 3.5 pounds to go. The not surprising thing is I have found that my body is shaped a little differently now and my clothes aren't fitting quite the same either. Usually my tummy was not my problem-area, but now all of my shirts feel a little too short! Good thing she's worth it...
Losing the baby weight has been both harder and easier that I thought. The first 20 dropped within the first few weeks, and the last 13 have been more difficult (yes you can do the math to find out how much weight I gained).
So hopefully I will reach my goal by next Friday. I'll keep you posted.
I would love to hear what other moms did to lose the baby weight.
