Hoooray!!! I got a Moby Wrap!

I've been wanting a moby wrap since Ava has been born! I had recieved a peanut shell sling as a gift but unfortunately Ava hated it...it was a little too confined and snug for her. Poor baby screamed and cried as soon as I put her in it. A friend of mine had told me about the moby wrap and how it was amazing and very supportive of the baby and of your back, shoulders, and neck. So here I am with my MW and i LOVE IT. And the best part is that Ava loves it too. I can also breast feed with her in it! It's very versatile and you can change her positions as she grows. I would highly recommend this product to anyone.

Soooo...I weighed my self today and I have lost 40 of the 60 lbs so far that I gained with Ava! Hooray! Yes...I can't believe I just announced to the world how much I gained. Whatever. But luckily it's coming off pretty quick giving it's only been 4 weeks since Ava was born. Only a grueling 20 more lbs to go! I get to start working out in a few weeks thank goodness so that should help shed the rest. Wish me luck!!

4 weeks old!

We can hardly believe that Ava is already 4 weeks old! It feels like she just yesterday that we were riding home in the car for the first time from the hospital. She has grown so much! She is doing so well and is such a good baby! We have a pretty good schedule that we follow every day and she is adjusting amazingly. Nights can be a little challenging still and it seems that she tries to fight it the most around 3 am BUT we are progressing and I can tell a big difference just in the last week. Lucky enough though she will sleep 4-5 hours at night already! I'm hoping by the time I go back to work August 1st that she will be sleeping at least 8 hours. It's a goal!!! It's all about consistency and a schedule. Here are a few pics from this week...isn't she the cutest baby girl EVER! SO IN LOVE!!!!!!!!!

First bath!

I had my first bath today! I didn't like it as much as my mommy said I would...I guess it will take me a little longer to enjoy being a water baby!
