New Baby Momma
On July 21, I officially became a baby momma when my son Isaac was born. It’s still a new enough thing that I’m counting his life in days (25 – that seems like a big milestone!), though keeping track of many other things (how many times a day I’m feeding him, how many diapers a day I’m changing, how long he is sleeping during the day) have long fallen by the wayside.
And of course I have to share a picture of him. Family and friends have been very generous in the gift giving department – one of our neighbors gave him some signed autographed Dodgers baseball cards (Don Mattingly is in there), and you can see the Amazon gift cards that help support my Prime habit, which has become even stronger with his arrival. Oh, and of course Isaac is wearing his Top 10 ranked UCLA Bruins football outfit that was a gift from a fellow Bruin.
So what does being a new baby momma have to do with Peak Hotness? I think it has more to do with how to get back on a track to Peak Hotness, though I’ve noticed most people don’t care what I look like when I’m holding a weeks-old baby.
- You are constantly doing arm exercises, so being a new momma puts you on a path for upper-body definition.
- You will have to buy new (bigger!) bras, and when you see pictures of yourself, especially in tank tops, the increased size is impressive.
- If you are breast feeding, you will want to clean your plate every meal and eat cookies every day. And so far I think that’s OK. I’m not weighing myself until my 6 week dr appointment.
- Weird and different things happen to your body post-partum. I had no swelling during pregnancy, now I get swelling and numbness in my hands at night. Not good for picking up crying baby.
- The belly still feels soft and pudgy. Where is my core?
