We went shopping...
I am not yet back to my former size and shape, but I am not too far off. Today I got a pair of shorts to wear while I am being a mommy and a skirt to wear while I am going to work. The skirt is a size 4 pencil skirt that I bought 1) because it was on sale and 2) because I could fit into it!
We came home and the boys were cranky, I fed them, and then I cooked dinner with Asher on me in the Moby wrap. I had a major mishap-- I went to put the lid on the salad shaker, and instead the shaker slipped out from underneath and sprayed balsamic vinegar all over the kitchen! I just stood there for a second taking it all in and Eric said, "Are you going to pick the shaker up?"
Right as we were finishing the clean-up and getting ready to sit down, our friend Susan showed up with a delivery from Whole Foods-- beer, cherries, tomatoes and mozzarella, and a homemade lemon-blueberry loaf. So we invited her to stay for dinner, which made for good company and of course, good food.
I put the babies to bed separately tonight, which is a nice change. I nursed Asher alone in the nursery, in the glider, and sang him some lullabies and held him in my arms. It was very peaceful and made me so glad that I am nursing and can have these moments with my sons. I later nursed Benjamin downstairs, but he was still hungry (not a surprise) so I gave him some milk in a bottle and he fell asleep in my arms. That was also nice, we had a cuddle and I kissed his velvety head and listened to his little sounds. I love these little moments and try to hold on to them because I know they will pass too quickly. I just love the solid feeling of them in my arms, their baby smells, their breath on my neck, their snuffles and sighs. I hold them close and tell them how much I love them and how lucky I am to be their mommy. I hope they know how much they are loved.
