3 Months

Nathaniel is now three months old.

Fiesta happened and I celebrated my forty and fabulous birthday.

Fiesta is not complete without the obligatory picture with Melvis (the Mexican Elvis).

Nathaniel is alert more and is in need for constant stimulation. Last week we attended toddler time at the library. I was reluctant at first thinking he was to young.  We sang, played, read books, and everything kept his interest.  We also go on daily walks with our new sling. I'm going to work up to doing lunges with Nathaniel in the sling, in hopes to make my legs stronger and get muscle back.  

Let's get real people, one day I hope to laugh or cough and not pee on myself. The way I see it is that all competitive athletes pee on themselves.  That is how I see myself- just another athlete trying to scare off other athletes from drafting off me. 

Brest feeding is like training. You have eat right and drink lots of water.  Breast feeding while I am working out is even more difficult because I have had to really listen to my body to ensure I'm eating and drinking enough to supply both me and Nathaniel without getting dizzy.

Like most days, some are easy and some are hard.  Overall, I love being a mommy.  Most of all, I love listening to Nathaniel giggle, laugh, and smile.

On a Mission

This week I was on a mission to do a blog post before Nathaniel's three month birthday.  I really do not have much to blog about except being a new mommy.  

Nathaniel and I do most of the same things everyday. Wake, eat, nap, change diapers, and play. Wait, this kinda of sounds like a bike tour.  Wake, eat, ride, go to the bathroom, repeat. Needless to say I have been getting pretty board and I am constantly looking for new entertainment, hopefully with adults.

Da mister is training for his first TRi, my training is limited.  But mark my words, when this TRi thing is over, it will be my turn to hit the road while da mister stays home with the kids.  

I get nervous about going to too many places with Nathaniel just because I never know if he will be fussy.  His timing my not be good timing for me.  I guess you could say I am a nervous mom, but hey, this is my first time doing all this.  It is taking me some time getting used to the car seat, diaper bag, baby, toys, change of clothes, and diaper refills.  You get the picture- lots of baby things to think about.  I try to make things as simple as can be, even dressing Nathaniel is a simple onesie without shorts or pants. 

My goal is to get Nate on more of a schedule so things can be more predictable around here.  Really, I do not have much to complain about.  He is a good baby and will sit and play while I do what I need to do.
