I cannot believe that it's been 9 months since Isaac first made his debut in to the world.
No one, I mean no one said anything before hand about the healing process after labor (I wish someone had), but afterwards, everyone was happy to tell me that it takes awhile to heal and to get back to feeling like your old self.
I personally believe that it takes 9 months to get back to feeling like your old self and probably close to a year to get back to your pre pregnancy weight.
The healing process and the weight loss are definitely individualized. I mean, I know some women who put on no weight during pregnancy and looked like a super model when the left the hospital. Well, this wasn't me!
So, 9 months post labor and I am finally feeling like my old self...most days. I have a ways to go with my weight but feeling confident that within a year, I will be back in to my fav jeans.
Here's me getting geared up to run 5 miles last Saturday...in the freezing cold. I was half way around and I thought to myself "it really does take 9 months."

It's been an awful past few days with Isaac having his first real cold. And like any new mother, I am beside myself on what to do. I have read several online advise sites but the answer seems to be....nothing. Lots of cuddles, steaming water and some vapor rub seem to help for a little while.
So, we have a house full of snot and I have become the ultimate momma nose picker...I am certain that mommy nose picking is instinctive.
Even though Isaac feels awful, he still finds enough energy to read his Cosmo and give a good smile.
