mw: seven weeks

it's amazing how fast time is passing and how quickly he is growing. now that he can see farther away, he is finally staring at the little animals on his rocker. he can stare at them for a while too. it's fun just to watch him look at them.
 
he is growing out of his newborn clothes and i'm afraid he is growing out of his size 1 diapers as well. i hope to use them for a few more days, but we'll see. we haven't had a diaper explosion in a while now, but i'm afraid we may be nearing that bridge again. his neck continues to grow strong. he loves to take baths as well. i'll have to tell you all about the best bath tub that i've found. and best because of the incidents that this child has had.
 
he has started smiling a little, it comes and goes. the other day, he gave his dad a little smile and filled with joy, his dad guffawed. yes, flat out guffawed - bd style. if you know him, when he laughs, it is a little cray cray. well, his guffaw scared the little smile right out of mw and he started crying. it was cute.
 
we love this little guy and love watching him grow up!
 
happy friday!

6 weeks check up

i had my 6-week checkup with my doctor this morning. i weighed in at 118 lbs. my midwife said that i can start upping my exercise. the only thing that i have really been doing is walking. i have done a little bit of yoga and another post-pregnancy workout video, but that has been minimal. i'll continue to increase the number of days that i work out and continue to try different work outs as my body allows.
 
i'm not in a rush to get back my body. i just want to continue to work out and be able to walk up a flight of stairs without breathing hard ;) 

 
i still have a bulge on my belly so this picture may be a bit misleading.

 
excited to work out again!

first: church


after the short hiatus, we are back at church and it was mw's first time at church. i have been wanting to put him in the outfit below and was so excited for him to wear it as it is just so cute. he looks like an old little asian man haha! we received this outfit from our friends, the e. bd saw the outfit and immediately knew who it was from since the e' kids are always in little pant/suit outfits. i didn't realize that bd notices kids' fashion but apparently he does!
 
mw got a lot of loving and he did very good with our friends that held him.

 
this outfit came with a little clip on tie; however, he wasn't very comfortable with it on when he was in the car seat so we had to put it away. i didn't get a full picture of his outfit & wished i had taken one!!! :(



tired & fussy after church.


daddy & son sunday nap.

 
my two favorite boys.
 
hope you are all having an awesome monday!

review: origins mega-bright skin tone correcting serum

if you have read this post, then you know that dark spots are my nemesis. i'm still trying to figure out what works for these darn dark spots and i tried origins mega-bright skin tone correcting serum, but it didn't do anything for my dark spots. i do love the way it smells and how it feels on my skin, but that doesn't justify using this. when a serum promises something, that is what i expect so unfortunately as much as i love all things origins, this product is a thumbs down for me.
 
on a happier note, happy friday!
