Babies don’t care if you haven’t yet lost that extra pregnancy weight.
August 26, 2011: Who needs weights when you’ve got a baby? It’s actually getting easier to lift my little fatty.
Footnote, October 6: I use “fatty” as a term of endearment. In recent weeks I’ve told Dan to stop using the word “fat” because Mila will have a complex before she’s even 3-months-old. Then I caught myself using the same word and have been working on curbing my tongue. Fat has such a negative connotation that I don’t want Mila to grow up being called or calling other kids “fat”. I went through this myself, (being teased at school) and that was heartbreaking enough.
August 22, 2011: Well, my fatty is in the 90th percentile for weight! And 50th in height. At 5+ weeks and 11 pounds, 7 ounces and 21.5 inches, she’s not overweight according to the doctor. Good thing and no wonder my back hurts!
