My baby is perfect. I don't know how I'll manage to have more perfect babies because this one just can't be improved upon. She got four shots today and actually tried to smile through her tears at the nurse who stabbed her. Then she stopped crying and began cooing and blowing raspberries on the drive home. Then she managed to pull off one of the Bugs Bunny band aids and nearly had it in her mouth before I noticed and snatched the blood-stained thing away from her. It's just a hunch but I don't think the shots bother her much. She's in the 90th percentile for both height and weight. I'm allowed to start rice cereal but I'm in no hurry. It's too much work and I'm lazy.
I am so annoyed with my clothing situation. I know it isn't uncommon for girls to go through periods of weight gain and loss but until I had a baby, I didn't. I was pretty much one size and I stayed that size. Now my weight and shape is fluctuating all over the place! Bizarre! I fit into my pre-pregnancy clothes but many of them just don't feel right. Only a small percentage of them feel nice enough to wear on a regular basis. So do I throw all the old stuff out? I'm only five pounds more than I was pre-pregnancy! I bet it'll all change after I stop breastfeeding so do I keep the old stuff because maybe the fit will improve later on? Pack it away in boxes that I'll forget about until right before I have my next baby?
I hate this.
Buying new clothes is expensive and I would rather wear my old stuff but my weight has been redistributed. I bought a new pair of jeans back when I thought my weight had more or less stabilized but those are falling off me now. So what size do I buy now? Things that are just a little bit tight in case I keep losing weight? Things that are just right and so I'll have to remember where they fall on the fitting scale?
I hate shopping and hate wasting money even more. Clothes are such a waste of money. Gimme a toga.
I need a camera for the Oregon trip. Anyone want to lend me theirs? (LL?)
