>Has gone through a growth spurt in the past week and I’m noticing a lot more chub on him. He no longer fits into most newborn clothes.

>Never had his days and nights confused, for which I am extremely grateful, but lately he has started waking up around 3 a.m. and never really going back to sleep.

>Doesn’t cry much, but grunts a lot and makes noises that sound like a goat.

>Had his first bottle today and drank from it without any problem.

>Is a good nurser, although he needed quite a bit of teaching at first.

>Still has his cephalohematoma, but it has hardened and shrunk some.

>Doesn’t like baths yet.

>Is barely ever referred to by name in our house, but is just “baby brother.”

>Has an extremely affectionate big sister.

>Am still on blood pressure medication that gives me headaches every other day.

>Have zero pants that fit me other than yoga pants, and am thinking a lot about my postpartum wardrobe.

>Miss my puppy, and still can’t believe that she’s really gone.

>Keep being surprised at how light Liam’s hair actually is, especially in the sunshine.

>Will be on maternity leave for about another month and a half. So far I feel like I’ve made good use of the time, but there is still a lot I’d like to accomplish.

>Am really looking forward to getting back into a routine eventually.

>Can eat ice cream again without feeling sick!

>Love the warmer weather that we’re having, and intend to get out and about more now because of it. Trips to the craft and thrift stores are in my near future.

>Met another mom with kids the same age as mine while on a walk today, and now I’m scheming how I can become friends with her.

>Am feeling a lot more like myself lately.

    From Sarah @ Beauty School Dropout:

    Agree with Lauren — that last photo rocks! =) The post partum maternity wardrobe… argh. Just be patient with yourself. Maternity clothes are your friend, even though you’re sick of them. I seem to have a bit of distasis recti so even though I fit in my clothes now (at nearly 7 mos postpartum) I still have the super poochy belly. It’s kind of annoying.

    From Nora:

    My goodness he’s adorable. The Meredith and Liam pictures are great and the last one? So cute!
    Glad you’re feeling more life yourself. You know that if I lived near you, even though I don’t have kids your age, I’d be so ready to go on walks and craft runs and hang out with you. Wish our States were closer.
