Wow. It’s been 3 weeks since I last posted, vlogged, anything. I don’t aspire to a be a “big” blogger, and that’s probably good, because I would suck at it with these posting habits. Anyway, life for me has been….chaotic. But I don’t know that it’s any different than where I left off before. Since I’ve been away:
I turned 26, on March 13th. The actual day….wasn’t that great. But I had a great birthday weekend. I had a drink!
Zoe turned 5 months, on March 17th. She can sit up on her own for a short period, and she is an EXPERT roller. And she weighs about 14lbs. I get a lot of comments about her being petite, which I really don’t understand. Zoe is quite juicy to Byron and I, and my wrists and back have been complaining, so…. but whatever. She gets plenty to eat (drink) and she is totally healthy.
Izzy got a line, the FIRST line, in the Easter program at church, and I HOPE, hope, hope, that she just says her line and steps back. When we practice her line with her, she unfailingly goes off on a tangent about flowers and rainbows and toys….in a skit about the resurrection of Christ, so….
I STILL don’t have my car back. But I’m supposed to get it today. We’ll see.
I’ve ordered Jamaican Black Castor oil and Shea butter for my little naturally curly family. I think it will be beneficial for all of us, and I’m curious about if the castor oil will help Zoe’s little baby bald spot. I know it’s gonna grow back regardless, but it can’t hurt to try to help it along a little. I’m already very excited to be feeling my little “springs” again in my hair. I had forgotten how much I loved them! Now, if I can just get this moisture problem in line…
I have been a clean-eating (for the most part), running, biking, working out machine, and the scale was NOT moving. In fact, it seemed to be going up. Well, this morning, I had a bit of a breakthrough, totally unexpectedly, and I’m feeling motivated again!
My milk supply…..is dwindling. Well, maybe not dwindling, but it’s not good. I am on fenugreek, pumping, nursing, chugging water like a maniac, and it still seems like it’s never enough. I would like to a freezer supply, but it doesn’t look like that’s going to happen.
Izzy recognizes about 80% of her letters now! Even if she can’t do preschool right now, the learning will happen!
Speaking of learning, registration for my college courses in fast-approaching. I’ll be taking the compass next week,because my ACT scores are too *ahem* old. So, I did a bit of studying, taking practice tests, and that math….now that it’s been nearly 10 years since high school? Lawd. I’ll just have to retake the classes, because I probably need them anyway.
