Soren is walking pretty well now. It is so funny to watch him strutting around. I cannot believe how STOCKY he is. He’s about 25 lbs now and will be 14 months old next week. He is very good at putting Legos together and taking them apart. He can sit down and just build and unbuild for literally hours. (Nice for Mommy.)
Jireh amazed me this morning by buttoning her own dress. I don’t really remember exactly when Miriam learned to button and unbutton, but it seems to me like it was pretty recently. Jireh just has that mechanical mind and figures things out so quickly. Unfortunately, today she learned the hard way not to shake pepper all over the air. She accidentally shook some into her eye and ran to me screaming. I had to smell her to figure out what had happened.
So yesterday I finally got on a scale and was amazed to see that I have
lost 25+ pounds already. I only have 8 more to pre-pregnancy weight but
I would rather lose 18… My midwife had said she thought I probably had 10 lbs of water, and the baby was over 8, so I guess it is not too hard to believe. I really don’t know what I am doing
differently this time except for nursing through the night still which
I normally am not doing at this point… Anyway, go ahead and send the
hate mail that I know is coming. Get it out in the open.
