It’s been a while…
A lot has been going on in the last two months and I just haven’t had the energy or time to blog.
Our little family moved cities and we couldn’t be happier where we are now! The hubby was offered an amazing job that he couldn’t refuse and so we packed up our stuff and we were out. To be honest, we were waiting for any excuse to get out of South Florida, and away from all the drama that it comes with.
Dean is 4 months old! Can you believe it? Why must they grow so fast??? Make it stop.
Here’s what he looks like these days…
As you can see, he’s found his feet!
Stats: At his 4 month checkup, he weighed 16.8lbs and measures 26.5 inches long. This makes him tall and solid! Daddy is proud, naturally. He is rolling over, sitting assisted, laughing at his older brother, and grabbing anything in site!
Breastfeeding: We are still exclusively breastfeeding and it’s going great. He is not the best latcher, or the most efficient, but that won’t stop this mama! I had another plugged duct the other day but, thankfully, it wasn’t mastitis. That was the absolute worst! Although, we are in no rush to start eating food yet, Dean has recently begun to show some interest in the food I’m eating. Once he begins to sit unassisted a little better, I will have him join us at the dinner table and offer him some food. I’m guessing this will be around the 6/7 month mark. I may begin giving him soft boiled egg yolk (pasture raised) with liver before then. If you want to know why click here.
Sleep: On average, he is still waking every 2/3 hours to nurse. He has random nights where he will sleep for a long stretch. I’m not worried since this is normal while cosleeping and nursing.
Updates on mommy….
I’m only SIX pounds away from pre-pregnancy weight at 4 months! This puts me at 153 lbs. I am so proud of this. Last time around, I was nowhere near pre-pregnancy weight this fast. I don’t think I lost the last 10 until after a year. I work damn hard so I’m totes bragging.
Here are some pics of the belly at 4 months postpartum. I’m starting to see some toning but I still feel like the baby pooch hasn’t fully returned to normal. Hoping it does!

Have a great weekend everyone! See you next month. Who knows? Maybe I will get inspired to post a new recipe or something. :)
