Mint Houndstooth Coat and an Update

Two and a half weeks after birth, I finally found some free time to do an official outfit post. This is what I wore yesterday to our first outing. For those of you who don't follow me on instagram, Zaden had his two week appointment and circumcision yesterday. He was such a good little boy and hardly cried, I cried more than he did ;P We also ran a few more errands throughout the afternoon since Daryl was able to get the day off in order to help me out with Zaden. 

I knew that Zaden had put on some weight since his birth, he was just feeling so heavy the last couple of days. I also knew that if we were breastfeeding good that he would put on an average of 6 ounces a week. When we left the hospital Zaden weighed 5lbs 14oz, so I was assuming that he would weight about 6lbs 10oz, I was wrong. Zaden weighed a whopping 7lbs 12oz!! That means he gained about one pound each week, and he grew 2 inches longer. I wasn't kidding when I said this kid is constantly eating (;

On another note, it feels so good to be able to fit into most of my clothes, have somewhat of a waist, and to have my baby boy in my arms instead of kicking my insides (although I do miss those little kicks). I threw together this outfit in about 3 minutes while breastfeeding Zaden in one arm. I think that is quite the accomplishment wouldn't you agree? This coat that I'm wearing USE TO fit and I even have proof! I can't believe my waist was ever that small and I don't know if I will ever be able to button this coat up again (; I don't own a scale so I had no idea how much weight I lost after giving birth but I was weighed yesterday and I'm 12lbs away from my pre-pregnancy weight which makes me happy! I can't wait to be able to workout again and lose this extra skin around my stomach. 

Happy Tuesday Friends!

  17. lady you are looking pretty gorgeous! you just had a baby and you're breastfeeding, don't worry about when the weight comes off ...society puts too much emphasis on prebaby weight and celebrities looking like they never popped out kids. and I can't believe Zaden's grown so much already!

  28. You look great! Love the mint green color. I was amazed at how teeny I was before baby too. And you will go back! I am 8 months post partum now and back to my normal size, fitting in all my pre-baby super high waist tight clothes. Believe women when they say it takes 9 months to fully go back to normal, just like it took 9 months to put it all on. I lost 29 lbs in my first week home, but for the next couple months I still had this flubbery belly and this awkward shaped body with pods of fat here and there. That all goes away I promise!
