I’m going to make this quick, because I want to post everyday this week. I’m also working on getting some stuff up for slowre Thursday (I got this Sunja Link dress in on consignment!), AND Hawk usually wakes up around 4 from his nap, so I’m up against the wall here!!
I got this Milo jumpsuit when I got the IK Caroline pants I wore yesterday and I love them both so much. I have to really wiggle my hips/belly to get into the jumpsuit, but once it’s on it’s complete perfection. And I mentioned yesterday in a comment that I have to wear supportive shoes all the time now (plantar fasciitis), so I bought two pair with back straps so they would just stay on my feet through all the sitting on the floor, running around, etc., that I do now. This is a new style of Birkenstock (totally “vegan”) and they feel like I’m wearing clouds, literally. I can’t recommend these enough if you are in the market.
As you can see, I’ve had to completely rehaul my wardrobe since having Hawk, but luckily I can still manage to wear most of my tees/tops although they’re a little tight across the shoulders/arms since my arms aren’t as toned anymore. I’m still shocked that my body just took all the weight I gained during my pregnancy and redistributed it, then decided to hold on to it for dear life and add even more. I don’t know what I expected? I guess for it to just disappear like literally everyone says it will?? haha.
I believe that’s a function of my “advanced” age, but I almost want to go back and punch everyone in the face who said I’d have no problem losing the weight, etc., given how great a shape my body was in pre- and during pregnancy LOL. To be fair, not a lot of people have experience with women having babies over age 45 – I imagine if I’d had Hawk at 25 and was in as great a shape as I was at 46 I might have had an easier time of this postpartum phase. But maybe not. Who knows.
Anyway, I’m happy to have him. He is an adventure, that’s for sure!
