First of all, thank you so much for all of the well-wishes that I’ve gotten regarding my mom. They are very much appreciated!
So I don’t know if it’s the warmer sunnier weather (no doubt), my mom’s seemingly good recovery (most definitely) or the free latte I got at Starbucks yesterday (didn’t hurt), but things really seem to be looking up. It’s amazing how a a few positive things can have such an impact on your overall spirits. I feel like there is a real turnaround happening and I’m slowly but surely starting to take a step back into life a bit. I’m packing in plans with friends (even trying to make new ones, yikes), motivated to work in the kitchen (it’s been a while) and taking advantage of every minute of sunshine that comes my way. On top of that, L’s starting swim classes this week. Why I signed up for something that requires me to put on a bathing suit AND a swim cap is somewhat baffling, but hopefully it will just be fun. At least I know it will be nice to be reunited with some of the girls I did prenatal yoga with since they’re babies are in the same class.
What else? I’m probably due for a New Mom post because it’s been a while. Some topics I’m thinking about are baby food, post-baby body and life with baby in general. Thoughts?
Now for this week’s updates

Glad things are on the up and up. The sun certainly helps on top of everything else. All of the mom posts sound good, especially the post baby body.

Yay for your mom feeling better, and YOU too!
So glad things are turning around :) I’d love a post on life with baby in general!
yay! So glad your mom is feeling better and things are looking great. The weather tends to do that to the spirit too! I love your real mom posts. Have you done a baby favorites/ survival guide? I love those real mom reviews but I’m looking for those.
