Summer Nights

Holy cow! It has been hot hot hot outside! I am so ready for fall weather and all the fun stuff that comes with the fall season.  I'm not, however, ready to go back to work.  But that's not until October 1st so we won't even talk about it ;)

Evelyn will be 6 weeks tomorrow!! She has changed so much in these 6 weeks and is starting to come out of her newborn stage and is starting to look more like a baby baby.  She is very alert and awake during the day and it's very rare if she sleeps for more than an hour at a time.  Which is good because I only have to get up once during the night.  I love to watch her watch everything around her.  I can't wait until we start seeing her little personality coming out and I'm waiting each day for those first cooo's and caaaaa's.  I know it's going to happen any day now :)

We have been trying to get her on a night schedule so when I do go back to work it won't be so rough.  We try to give her her last bottle and put her down between 8 and 9.  It's been working pretty good. There's only been a few nights where Evelyn just wasn't sleeping and that was that!  Now, I'm not a summer time person, I don't participate in summer activities and I don't go outside much but there is a little bit of depression that sets in on the nights when we put Evy down while the sun is still out.  We are climbing into bed and whispering to each other so we don't wake her up while the rest of the world (at least it seems) is just starting their night and doing some fun summer night activities. Sometimes I think I want to join in but then I see this cute little chubby sweet face snoozing away and that trumps any plans anyone has :)

Now that Evy is 6 weeks old it means that I have made it through my 6 week rest period.  Time to get with it and start eating better and get back on an exercise routine.  I've dropped around 20 pounds but that was mostly all that pregnancy, bloated, big uterus weight.  Now I can see the damage I did during my pregnancy and it's time to GET IT TOGETHER! I would really like to fit into my work pants when I return.  AND I would like to maybe buy some new stuff too :) Wish me luck! The goal I am going for is to have the title Hot Mom! ;) I'll keep you updated on my progress.
