Ok, it has been four weeks since I’ve been checking my weight on the scale and it has not changed (well, maybe it’s less 1-2 pounds). I’m seriously considering throwing it out the window! Since Julian passed, I’ve been working so hard to lose the baby weight, taking exercise/yoga classes and eating like a bird (that’s what my mother in law said the other day). It was so much easier losing this weight with my other two children and I really owe it to the breastfeeding. This way is a lot harder.
Today, I babysat my nephew Jake, who was born two weeks after Julian. It was so nice to comfort, feed and hold a baby again. It feels like it’s been so long since I’ve done that. I really miss him. I’m thinking about writing a memoir, to tell his story and see if I could help others through their difficult times.
Well, per my brother in law’s request, I will be posting my first recipe. You don’t want to miss it. These buttermilk pancakes are the best pancakes you will ever eat! I recently passed on this recipe to my sister in law and good friend and they love them. This is a keeper.
