Growing Fonder

smockdress6

I think it's funny that I chose a smock dress as the first "post pregnancy" outfit for my blog.  I am, by no means, embarrassed with my body at the moment.  While I'm still a flabby mess (it's only been two weeks), I've already gone down to my pre baby size 4.  Once I'm cleared to start working out I think I'll be back to my old self in no time.  But like I stated in a post not too long ago, I'm absolutely obsessed with smock dresses lately.  I love that they look so fancy without compromising any comfort.  I have a feeling I'll be adding a few more to my closet this season...

Mommyhood so far has been wonderful.  Bianca is a dream baby!  She lets us sleep pretty much all night (I'm the one waking her for feedings) and is a happy camper during the day.  Although I'm a little worried today because after two weeks together, Kevin is finally going back to work.  Whether it was helping me with a diaper change, cleaning the house, or getting me a glass of water during a feeding, my husband has been an enormous help.  It's hard to imagine how I'm going to do this all alone today so wish me luck!
