8:05 AM: 2-Mile Walk (4-incline @ 3.5 speed: 40-minutes) – COMPLETED
Today is my 4-week post-pregnancy visit with the OB/GYN. Usually it’s scheduled at 6-weeks, but my OB told me to schedule at 4 if I want to get the “okay” to run. Honestly, I think I could have started two weeks ago (slow run/walk), but I followed instructions this time. At least I have been keeping up with walking so I can build up my strength to my normal speed and then faster.
I wanted to get up much earlier to get this walk in since it’s going to be a crazy day, but Lili-Bear came to bed at 4:00. Well, actually I saw Pedro rocking her in the hallway and I told him I would take over. He said that she was asleep but was just acting spoiled and wanted to be held. So he told me to lay down in bed so I could hold her. I did just that and 20-minutes later, he took her out of my arms and put her in her bassinet. I quickly drifted back to sleep and we woke up at 6.
Anyway, Lili had some company yesterday. Scarlett came to visit her and at first, she was not happy to see her. Lili went down for a nap and the rest of us went to the dining room to eat dinner. After Scarlett was done with dinner, I went into the kitchen and peeked over to check on Lili and I saw Scarlett looking over the crib to check out the goods. It was cute.
After Scarlett started playing with Lili’s mobile roughly, I took her into Lili’s room to get some other toys. She was more fascinated with Lili’s jungle gym/tummy time.
And then we thought it would be a fun idea to bring Lili on the mat with her.
Scarlett asked if she could hold Lili, so we gave it a try.
Scarlett is definitely opening up to her little cousin, but it’s really when she’s in the mood. After they left, we fed her, then she stayed up for a bit, and then fed her again. Her 10:30 feeding done did it to both her and I. We were exhausted.
I don’t even remember Pedro taking this picture, or taking her off of me. I don’t even remember relocating into our bedroom. It’s so comfortable sleeping with her.
Anyway, I need to finish my coffee, wake up Lili, feed her, change her, shower and head out. I wonder if I can do this in an hour. I’ll keep you posted on the appointment and respond to your comments this evening.
Happy Hump Day.
