Today, I left Knox in the capable hands of my mom for THREE WHOLE HOURS!! Okay, it felt much longer than it actually was, but I came to the conclusion that I don’t like leaving my baby! I’ve left him for one hour increments with Trevor while I ran to Target or Publix, but this was our longest separation to date since leaving the hospital. My mom swears he didn’t know I was gone, considering that he slept the entire time. He had a bottle of breast milk to hold him over until I got home, when he promptly ate again.
I had to go to the mall, which is why I didn’t wait for this evening or Saturday and just have Trevor watch him (just say no to the mall on the weekends, people). I was in desperate need of a “real” nursing bra. I’ve been wearing stretchy sleep bras from Target that I bought before he was born since I didn’t know what size I’d be, but I haven’t been leaving the house much so it didn’t really matter. I went to Motherhood Maternity and apparently… I’m a 34D. ??? I got measured and everything. I swear they’re not that big, but sure enough, that massive size fit perfectly. I was an A cup pre-pregnancy, FYI. I still think they must be sized wrong or something! Oh, and I am really glad that the first bra I tried on fit because I totally leaked milk in it. That’s so nasty to think about- I really hope some other woman didn’t try on my new bras before I did and lactated all in them. Yeh, I’ll be washing those tonight!
I also went to Plato’s Closet to get some jeans. I decided that there was no way I was paying full price for jeans when I only have 4 pounds to go before I am at pre-pregnancy weight. Despite that fact, I seriously could not stand to wear my maternity pants anymore! It was a good plan, though trying on pants there is hard since they have a zillion brands all mixed together and all are sized differently. I ended up with a pair of Ann Taylor LOFT jeans and a pair from Express- for $24. So happy I did that! I am so glad to have an option other than pants with an elastic waist! I did some other small errands, too, but I won’t bore you with the details.
I’m just so glad to be back at home, cuddling my boy. He has learned to focus on my face, and I have to say, I love seeing those big, round, blue eyes staring back at me. It’s true love, I tell you.
