10 weeks

Ethan is 10 weeks and 2 days old today. I’m back at work and enjoying it. I do wish that I could work fewer hours for awhile as I feel like there is not enough time in the day to get everything done that needs to get done. Our house is a giant mess 🙂 Jarrod (my husband) has been watching Ethan while I’m at work. It’s been going great. Ethan has been such a happy and independent baby and he’s able to work with him at home. It’s funny how things can change week to week. Friend’s kept telling me things would get easier and they were right.  5 weeks ago, I would have never thought it would be possible for Jarrod to watch Ethan and get work done.

Ethan eats 6oz about every 4 hours. He is waking every night about 12-1 and 4-5 to eat. He’ll pretty much eat and go right back to bed. At his 2 month Dr.’s appointment he weighed 11 pounds 6oz and was 22 3/4 inches long. Ethan is mostly on formula, though I pump twice a day. Once before work, and once when I get home. I usually get about 1 bottle for him of breastmilk. I wish it was more, but it is what it is. When I was pumping more, I still only got about a bottle of bm.

We’ve decided to do an alternate vaccine schedule. We are following the Dr. Sears Vaccine Book. He will get all of his shots, just spread out into more Dr.’s visits. I would highly recommend reading the book. It discusses each vaccine, what’s in it, and what the statistics are for the disease it prevents.

As for me… I still have about 8 or 9 lbs to lose. I really thought the weight would just come off because I’ve never had a problem with weight in my life. I weigh about 128-130. I was 121 when I got pregnant. I’ve had a couple of sessions with a personal trainer who has given me a workout routine to do from home. I am going to buy an elliptical machine. I figure it will be a lot easier to workout from home than trying to get out of the house.
