I know, I know...long time, no blog!
For one thing, OZL has been keeping me really busy. It is really difficult to get a few minutes to myself to sit down and write a blog post. But, for another thing, I've honestly been having a hard time thinking of anything that I really want to blog about.
That's not to say that I've been feeling totally fantastic. I haven't. In fact, I've been exhausted and dealing with several different sore joints at once. I'm still not super in love with my body right now, and loosing the baby weight isn't an easy task with the fatigue and achy joints - and of course that baby I have to take care of all the time! But OZL, River and I have been trying to walk a mile or two every day. And my wonderful sister looks after OZL so I can still go to Pilates every week.
Some days I still really struggle to get by physically. But one good thing about taking care of a baby is that everything takes forever anyways - so if I have to slow down a bit more to accommodate my aches it seems a lot less noticeable now that it was before! Also, OZL is made of magic and spending my days with him just makes me so happy that the aches and pains just seem to matter a whole lot less. For the most part I'm just busy being happy with my son and I don't spend a lot of time thinking about my RA these days.
In fact, the only reason I remembered that I ought to write a blog post at all is that we are finally down to the end of my frozen breastmilk supply. OZL has still been getting a bottle or two of breastmilk every day - and he'll drink the last of it this week. And, quite unexpectedly, I think I'll be sort of relieved when he does. I won't have to fuss with defrosting and re-heating milk anymore. I won't have to be worried that the breastmilk is almost gone. It will all just be over and we can move forward to all the other important things we have coming - like eating pears!!
