update on life with 2 kids

well i had a doctor appointment yesterday. my blood pressure has actually increased since i had finley, so it's official and i am now on medication to try to correct the problem. hopefully it'll go down in the next couple weeks and it wont be a permanent thing.
...
i've also noticed a strange rash that started on my arms and has now spread to my chest and neck ... who knows? hopefully that goes away soon as well.
...
on another note that will make everyone hate me. i've lost 16 pounds and am back into my jeans (after 3 days)! yes i know ... i am a FREAK OF NATURE!! i'm sorry people.
...
and finley slept for 8 hours straight last night ... unfortunately i had a hard time getting back to sleep after she woke up ... UGH!!!
...
aidan is doing fairly well to the adjustment from only child to older sibling. he loves to give finley hugs and kisses. the first thing he says when he wakes up in the morning is "baby" and wants to go and see her. he loves to stick his finger in her hand so she can hold it (that's what i was trying to get a picture of in the first one). but he has a hard time when i am nursing her and can't give him what he wants *that* second. he gets frustrated. he has his good moments and his really bad moments, which i'm sure is completely normal. he'll adjust and we'll all be fine.

Awww such cute sibling love.

I don't hate you for losing your weight fast either! I wore my normal jeans throughout my entire pregnancy so it was very easy to get right back into them after delivery. But awesome job anyways!!

Finley is so adorable. I bet your just loving having a little girl

Cutie Patootie! And despite popular opinion I don't hate you either, hahaha! And it's okay- you don't have to tell everyone that they are your fat jeans that you only wear when go to Hometown Buffet so you can really stuff yourself silly... oops, was that a secret? Glad things are going well, and chill with the blood pressure... love ya

Congrats

Glad to see you back home and doing well. Cute kids.

ya, I wore my pants the whole time I was pregnant too. It helps when you wear your pants on your hips and not your waist. Finley is way cute. Glad you are out and about and doing well.

i'm anxious to meet her!

yikes about the blood pressure! your heart is just pumping your miniscule amount of weight right off! i am happy for you (and a bit jealous), but never hate!

and 8hours? that's blammin'! caleb has done that twice.

good thing you've got the sweet moments with aidan to balance out the insane ones. it's like with adam - he's baby incredible (though he'd call himself dash)...one minute sweet and adorable, the next he's turned into a berserk demon. good thing he sleeps at night!

Adri said...

Wow look at you . . . back into your jeans and running your blogs - you seem to be doing well! And Finley is a doll! Sorry about the rash and blood pressure - that doesn't sound like fun. Hopefully it all goes away soon.

Rachel said...

hey girl! i'm glad i ran into you. sounds like you are doing well except for the blood pressure thing. not fun, but look at you getting skinny so fast. it's not a surprise since you weren't big to begin with. anywhooo...have fun and take care.

Amanda said...

ohhhh.....she's a cute one!!! how fun!!!!

I'm glad to hear that things are going good, except for the little health issues.

Post more pictures. She is so cute!

That is so sweet with Aidan doing his big brother stuff. I have a ton of pictures of my oldest boy holding his little baby sister's hand. He did it every time I brought out the camera. He also had this thing about thinking she was cold, every time I turned around he had put something over her body to keep her warm, a burp cloth, once I even found a sock.

Enjoy it, now he's nine and she's seven, the love is a little bit more hostile now.

We are Ben and Rebecca said...

Hope you're alright with the meds and stuff ... I don't hate you either, I lost all my weight in days too, and only gained 17lbs. so you can just join our club, k?

Good luck with your clan.

I had a weird rash after Emma was born, turned out I'm allergic to penicillin, so check what they gave you at the hospital. Back in your jeans eh? Not bad, not bad. 10 months after having baby #3 I weighed (and still do) less than I did when I graduated high school! Huzzah! So yeah, freaks of nature! Hope your blood pressure gets normal though!
