Momma Monday

Time to sit back and reflect on the past week of being a momma to my little gal. I think this week went pretty well. We had some family come into town and had a wonderful weekend.

Momma victory #1:
We have survived our first baby cold! Sophie has had a runny nose and cough for the past few days. It's not gone yet, but I feel like I've gotten the hang of wiping her up and clearing her nose. She sure is cute with that little cough, but it makes me sad to see her all stuffed up. Hopefully she can kick the cold soon!

Momma victory #2:
Whoever tells first time expecting moms that breastfeeding makes you lose weight at an incredible rate was a big fat LIAR. Yes, you do lose a ton of weight within the first 2 weeks, but I'm thinking a lot of that was baby and her environment. I have been walking, but it's starting to get cold [finally], so I picked up this DVD and it's kicking my butt.

Every morning I wake up hating Jillian, but knowing that she is going to whip me into better shape. When I want to throw my weights and tell Jillian to go eat some cake, I try and remember this:

Or do you not know that your body is a temple of the Holy Spirit within you, whom you have from God? You are not your own, for you were bought with a price. So glorify God in your body. 1 Corinthians 6:19-20



  1. i'm laughing. "i wake up hating jillian..."

    i love you.

    i'm scared of the shred but might jump on that with you when we are living in the same city again!

  2. I'll definitely need Jillian's butt-kicking here in about two months! Though, I've gained between 10-17lbs (my weight is fluctuating a ton because of water weight gain/loss, ugh) so I'm HOPING it'll come off pretty easy. A girl can hope right?

    Congrats on surviving the first cold! Sophie has such a caring mama!
