I have BABY FEVER
and I have it BAD! This is one of my favorite pics of Ruthie when she was little. My camera was really crappy then, so it's not the best quality pic, but it is just precious. I miss her being so little.
The other night we went over to our friends' house and they have a little boy who is 3 months old. I didn't think I was ready to have a baby just yet b/c I didn't think I was ready for sleepless nights again. Holding that sweet little boy and hearing him drink his bottle and seeing him smile at me just b/c I was talking to him, made me ready. My heart is so ready to have another baby, but my body isn't. I want to lose weight before we conceive another child. Now I am not saying that if I conceive I won't be happy. I would be thrilled. My concern is, I had gestational diabetes while pregnant with Ruthie. It wasn't easy. I have read that if I lose weight, and exercise I *could* reduce the risk of having it with the next child. I would like to reduce my chance if all possible. So, Randall and I talked about when we would try to conceive and he said sometime around April. That gives me 4+ months to lose some weight. I need to lose about 30 pounds to make myself happy, but I don't think that is possible. I want to lose weight the healthy way. I hope that I am able to lose weight. I just need the extra push. So, this might be a weight loss journey blog for me as well!
Grandad is still in the hospital. We really won't know anything until Monday, so please continue to keep him in your thoughts and prayers. THANKS!
