|40 weeks old!|
|They're both trying to climb out|
Cael has been doing well with lunch since his 9 month appointment on Friday. I think he really enjoys the additional meal. He's also continuing to do much better at night, too. Last night, he slept until 4am, ate and went back to sleep, then woke up at 6:45 to eat again, and then we fell asleep again until 8:30! That hasn't happened in a long time! It was awesome to get that much sleep again. I'm thankful for it. Now we'll just have to see if it happens again tomorrow. :)
|9 months in & 9 months old!|
Yesterday, since Cael turned 40 weeks old, I decided I wanted to take a picture with me holding him. Originally, I wanted to do a 40 Weeks In/40 Weeks Old comparison picture, but then I realized I didn't have a full body 40 week belly picture. I wanted the pictures to be similar so that it was easily comparable. I took one when I was 39.5 weeks pregnant, but you can't see my head, and it was done in a mirror. So I used a picture from when I did my own maternity pictures. I think I was about 36/37 weeks pregnant, so I was technically 9 months. It was the best picture I had, so I had to use it. My belly wasn't its' biggest, but at the same time it didn't get that much bigger. I had Matt take a few pictures of me holding Cael, not knowing that this picture would be the one I'd use, and it turned out to be a perfect comparison.
I also was able to see how I looked physically. We don't have any full-length mirrors in the apartment, and I rarely get any pictures of myself full-body. I was actually quite pleased with how thin I look. You can definitely see how much weight I lost in my face from when I was pregnant, to now. I had gained some weight in my neck and cheeks when I was pregnant, but I'm happy to say that I lost that and then some.
