Whoops, I got slightly distracted and completely missed Zoe’s 4 month birthday. I am sure she will forgive me. I blame the Easter holidays and life with a very needy 4 month old.
Zoe has come on leaps and bounds this last month, she is constantly wiggling and kicking and desperately trying to crawl, she doesn’t quite understand the concept but knows she wants to be anywhere but here, she has places to go and wants to get there in a hurry!
She is 13lb 5oz (weighed at 17 weeks) and while I haven’t measured her, she is crazy tall.
She is also full of smiles and chat, her favourite thing is to wait until I am feeding her in public, then unlatch, lean back and smile and shout which draws the attention of everyone in the place to my exposed boob. Such fun.
She has also become quite clingy to Mummy, not liking it when I leave a room or try to leave her with anyone else. I think this is partly my own fault as I have been trying so hard to get her into a routine that I’ve been doing it all myself, so she is used to me and will accept no substitutes. I went to a zumba class last week and she screamed for the full hour I was gone, as soon as I walked through the door she was full of smiles, much to Daddy’s horror.
Although everyone keeps telling me its totally normal, it doesn’t help me leave the house alone.
Speaking of Zumba, I am trying to get fit and healthy again, I started pre-pregnancy but it all went on hiatus while I grew this adorable tiny human. I am back on track though, running, zumba, healthy food… Lets do this. A lot of people aim to lose their baby weight, but I actually lost weight in pregnancy and I am two stone lighter post baby. My goal is actually to be a fit and healthy mummy who can run around after her crazy child and be a good food role model.
I share all my fitness/healthy stuff over on instagram, so give me a follow if you want to see how I am doing.
So, in conclusion this month has been fun, but challenging. Looking forward to starting our new term of classes and seeing how my little baby grows and learns.
