Such a cute bird themed baby outfit my friend got for the baby. Now it just needs to warm up so she can wear it. At 3 weeks old she is already 12 lbs and wearing 3-6 month clothes.
We worked on our Spring theme continuing with baby animals.

In My sleep deprived life:
Papabird went out of town on Wednesday so I am a single mom with 4 kids and a newborn. At least he is only 6 hours away by car this time. in 3 weeks he will be on the other side of the world in Santiago for a week.Things were a bit challenging. baby was extra cranky most nights, we are working through some reflux and belly issues with her. Robin was having sleep walking and night terror episodes. I have noticed she has them more often when Papabird is out of town. Owl was wandering the house at night just because he didn't want to sleep and wanted a drink of water. Every time these events happened I just got baby to sleep only to have her woke up by the other kids. ( we co-sleep.) So far this week I am extra sleep deprived so I am proud of what we got done.
I gained 33 lbs during my pregnancy and I am down 23 I have 10lbs more to go to get to my pre-pregnancy weight and 10 more that I gained just before being pregnant. So I want to lose a total of 20lbs. I have never had much luck losing weight while nursing but hoping that is not the case this time around. I am chomping at the bit to get my butt back up and moving to get back into shape. So I started whole 30 this week as well. I pretty much eat that way anyhow now that I cannot have dairy because I am nursing.
For those who do not know the rules of whole 30 Pretty simple, all fresh and nothing processed.

Did I mention that I love life? I do every second of it. Life is busy. Life is Challenging but life is good!
