You know how they say the camera can add 10lbs, well for the sake of my sanity, it can also "remove" 10lbs or maybe 30 (even without photoshop). This post-pregnancy weight has really been getting me down. I know that it took a year to gain and I'm going to give myself a year to take it off, but talk about a bummer man. I also don't want to do any radical diets, in fear it may deplete my milk (isn't that the best excuse ever, like I could ever go on a radical diet!). Breastfeeding so far has done absolutely nothing in terms of weight lose. Sure, I haven't been dieting, but I also haven't been over eating. Even with cutting out most treats and not eating after supper, nothing is happening. The worst part, is that evil little piece of junk in my bathroom, the scale. One day I had actually thought I lost a pound, but then I stepped back on 10 seconds later and was up a pound. I don't know what to believe, maybe it's just broken. I think the best place for that evil hunk of crapola, for my sanity and self esteem, is in 1,000 little peices after I've blown it to bits with a shotgun. How empowering! I think I might do this, stand by for that story.
Ezri and I have been playing around with the camera on my laptop. I think she might be a blogger one day. She likes to stare at herself on my computer and has little conversations with her mirror image. This is the way I've been making movies for myself to document her, but I'm finding it very limiting. You don't know how frightening it is to hold your lap top over a bath tub full of water, just so you can capture bath time (you know, so I can show it at her wedding, because I'm evil like that). This calls for a Movie making camera. Any suggestions?
This is what the weather has been like the last week, I took this photo on Mother's day. Every time I pick up the phone and talk to my family down south, it's flowers blooming this and barbecuing that. Well looks at this! I'm torn between telling them to keep it to themselves, or begging for details, so I can live the warm weather through them.
It's been even harder to get out now because of the baby. Nathan goes to work. I stay at home. I could get out to the store, but it's hard to get the baby all bundled up or even get her in my amauti by myself. If I was determined, it would happen. Really it's just that much easier to stay in my pajamas in the warm house. Though I think for my sanity, I need to get out more. Since it isn't warm here and I had this bathing suit that my mom sent, we did a dress up & pretend we're at the beach day (except I didn't dress up, that would have been silly). Why did my mom send a bathing suit to the arctic you ask? Well it's a 9 month suit, and Ezri is 4 months. She thought it would be perfect for this summer when we come down south. Unfortunately she will be unable to wear it at 9months, perhaps it would fit on of her legs by then. But for the meantime, a photo shoot gave us a good reason to try it on.
