Let’s see!! We have just been pushing along through the days and weeks around here. It’s hard to believe that it’s already September – we have an almost 4 month old son! Just plain crazy. He is the sweetest and happiest little bundle. I’m sorry, did I say little? When we weighed him a few weeks ago he was a little over 15 lbs! Shew!
I’ve written 4 or 5 blog posts that I just haven’t had the time to finish. I’ve been meaning to re-write Landon’s birth story. I wrote it all out on my phone right after he was born and apparently it was linked to a work account that was deleted from my phone along with a few other memories and things I “wrote down” the night I had him – completely unrecoverable. Awesome! I have every note ever written on my phone from 2012 until now EXCEPT for the month of May. So frustrating. Hopefully Nate can help me remember all of the little details. =)
So we’ve just been working, enjoying our cutie, and trying to keep up with life. I’m back at Bella Forza Fitness – finally! I’m so enjoying taking aerial classes along with some of my other favorite regular fitness classes again. I’m excited to feel my body regain the strength it lost during pregnancy. So I’ve got my classes a few times a week and Nate has his golf on the weekends. It’s good for us to be able to go do our own things that we enjoy. I feel like it’s important to make that time to maintain our identities outside of mom, dad, wife, husband.
On most days I need 2 or 3 cups of coffee to function. Our house is never clean by my standards. The laundry is never caught up. We’ve eaten a lot of take out and ignored important things to take naps or a hot bath or simply to just sit on the couch. I don’t even feel bad about it anymore. Until I do and I clean like a mad woman. Haha.
We are still dealing with Landon’s health issues and I will give an update on that soon. But overall he is doing/feeling well. To be perfectly candid, I am dealing with anxiety and have had a few panic attacks in situations where I’ve felt out of control of who is touching him. I used to joke when I was pregnant about how I wouldn’t be the overprotective mom who constantly freaks out about germs and people holding him. But then he almost died of a rare disease and we were told to be a little more careful than normal. It’s a difficult situation. I am having to learn to be assertive and tell people that they have to wash their hands or just plain ‘no’ to the little ones who want to hold him and I hate it. We will have to be hermits during the holidays due to flu season and I’m already dreading that. I’m hoping that we get some nice fall weather soon so that we can do some out door things with him before the cold hits. As of right now, Summer temps are still in full effect and it is brutal to do anything outside for very long.
Hope you’re all having a wonderful Labor Day weekend!
