Non-maternity Clothes

This is a Sponsored Post written by me on behalf of Ramblers Way. All opinions are 100% mine.

Now that Lucy is here, I am desperate to get back into regular clothes. I’ve lost most of the weight in my stomach and can now wear regular shirts again (yay!), but I’m still in maternity pants. So, to make myself feel better, I bought a new sweater yesterday. The only problem with non-maternity shirts is that they’re not long enough if you’re wearing maternity pants. That’s one of the things I hate about this transition period because I really don’t like the elastic waistband from my maternity pants peeking out from under my shirts. But, I don’t want to wear maternity shirts now that I don’t need to. I’d like to get some shirts like this long short-sleeve scoop neck top from Ramblers Way to help with my wardrobe. Not only could I wear them by themselves, but I could also layer them under other shirts and sweaters.

I really hope I’m not in maternity pants too much longer, but I’m not really holding my breath since it’s hard for me to lose weight in my hips and thighs. But, since I really like the length of maternity shirts, I definitely need to shop at Ramblers Way because I could and would wear these shirts after I get back into regular pants. And, at least wearing regular shirts is making me feel a little bit better about myself for now.

Two Weeks

Dear Lucy,
Your second week of life was filled with all sorts of fun for your daddy and me (and, yes, that is laced with sarcasm!). You were much fussier this week, which we discovered was due to you being quite a gassy girl. We could tell you were in pain, which hurt us to see, but luckily the gas drops we got you seem to be helping. This was a common expression this week:

We also got to experience the fun that is exploding diapers. And you got to have extra baths, which was oh-so-much fun for you (again with the sarcasm!)! And, your umbilical cord stump fell off this week!

We continue to be entertained by your hilarious facial expressions, and we try our best to document them all in pictures (complete with funny captions), though sometimes you’re too fast for us and we miss our chance.

So I was thinking … I’m ridiculously cute!

Thumbs up for cuteness!

Daddy loves your pouty lip, which you sport quite often. I think it’s pretty cute, too.

But the best part of this week? Cuddling you. But then again, that’s the best part of every day of every week.

I can’t wait to see what week 3 has in store for us, though I do think the time is flying by *way* too fast!

Love,
Mommy
