Update: Jack and other stuff

So, Jack is 2 weeks old tomorrow. I love having a newborn. He's still all scruntched up and red. I love it. He's already gained back half the weight he lost last week. So, things are good all around. Of course, he's waking up twice a night. Can't wait for the sleeping through the night phase. Oh well. Right now he's so adorable I don't mind holding and snuggling him in the middle of the night. Except, of course, when I have been out until 12:30 at the U2 concert. That's not so great.

I had to take Mati to the Dr. today. She's seriously constipated. Been 11 days since her last b.m. I know. TMI. But it's on the list of crap I am dealing with right now.

Erik and I went to U2 last night. It was awesome. Black Eyed Peas opened for them and they were really great, too. I was very pleased. Of course they have mouths like truckers, which isn't so great. But the performance was very good. U2 was awesome. I can not imagine the intensity it takes to be able to perform at that level. They were amazing. They have intensity and sincerity. I think that in order to keep an audience plugged in a performer must be a really good salesman or sincere. Maybe U2 is a bit of both. They actually believe or feel what they sing. And it was evident every moment. Well, I had to leave early. My post-surgery body decided that the decible level was a tad overwhelming and exhaustion was taking over.

Speaking of post surgery, I am moving around a lot better this time. God has been incredibly merciful. He knows what I can handle.

Is it too early to exercise? I'm dying to get into jeans for the fall. I'm not sure how realistic that is though. But I honestly don't know what I'm going to wear for the next two months until I can fit into jeans again. Oh well. I'm sure I'll figure something out.

Lastly, I know you would love some more pictures of Jack. I don't have any. Did I mention that I'm exhausted? I'll try and take some tomorrow and post them.

Wasn't the concert amazing? If I win lots of money I'll fly us to Europe next year to see the show again. :)

Poor Mati...I went through that with Elliot when she was about that age. Lots of Miralax and Baby Fleet. Nothing worse than holding down your screaming baby to administer an enema. :(

I just went back to the gym this week for my first post-surgery workout, but I'm taking it slow. I think if you take it easy, you can probably start some light cardio next week.

I can't wait to catch up with you! You're one of my favorite people to visit with, and yet we have so few opportunities!

Two words: MATERNITY JEANS. Dude, why try and squeeze into regular jeans? But STRETCHY pants...that's what I'm talkin' about.

Go to Old Navy and get some pants with elastic waistbands and drawstrings. They are comfortable and warm, and you can probably find them in a couple different colors. I love mine. You know the rules - 6 weeks until you can work out.
