[almost] Visiting Florida! We leave in one week and while I'm so excited to head home and for Eloise's first flight I will miss Husband [& Ada] so very much while we're gone. I always miss them when I'm away but I think this trip will leave me longing for them even more. I'll actually spend half my time with Husband & his family since he's going to fly down for a long weekend but I'm going for eight days & I'll miss him the days he's still in Virginia. I can't wait to be embraced by the heat of Florida's sunshine but things feel different this time around.
Working out, a little bit. Any effort is more than I made before I was pregnant. My goal is to join Husband in a 5k before we leave the country.
Creating milk again! I had an oversupply for the first few weeks then suddenly I was having problems keeping up with Eloise's demand and now I'm oversupplying again as my body re-regulates! One thing [besides lactation cookies] that coincides with my oversupply is my intake of Trader Joe's bran flakes. I had been eating two bowls a day then got hooked on eating eggs for breakfast but I've gone back to my bran flakes and I mean, milk central. On top of making more milk they talk about hindmilk looking like whole milk, more like heavy cream. She's getting some quality fatty milk.
Loving the feeling I get when I find the perfect gift! I ordered Husband's anniversary present from an Etsy vendor this weekend and I'm too happy. I'll post about the vendor and what I got him after I give him his gift because I'm too darn excited to ruin the surprise. We'll see if I actually hold out for our wedding anniversary [March 24] before I give him the gift. Maybe I'll celebrate our legal wedding date [February 29] instead! I'm absolutely bubbly with excitement and I really don't think I can hold out another month!
Missing out on getting to know my nephews! I got to Skype with my sister last week and saw my nephews but it really makes me sad that they aren't closer and that we'll never be physically near. Spencer is growing up so fast and since Sebastian is only 11 days older than Eloise I wish they could grow up together. We still have plenty of time to decide but we're really considering being "one and done" with Eloise so I wish she could have a solid relationship with her cousins. I suppose she could but it'll take a lot more effort on both our & my sister's part than if the kids could actually play with each other.
