Once upon a time I thought I liked exercising. Every time in the past I had to abstain due to injury or illness, I missed it desperately. Especially running. I use the Timehop app (it tells you everything you ever posted to social media on today's date in past years) to take a little walk down memory lane each morning. It's always like "once you ran 8 miles!" and I'm like "who would do that? That sounds insane!".
I started following as many blogs as I could of people due around the same time as me while pregnant. Now all the babies are out and all the bloggers are like "OMG can't wait to RUUUUUNNNNN skinny jeans and getting my diet under control yayyyyy!". And I'm over here like "Eric, bring me another cookie". I miss exercise.... zero.
In other news, I'm not a completely different person. I baked cookies. Pumpkin white chocolate snickerdoodles. Because the five bags of candy and two packages of pumpkin spice Oreos people have brought me weren't enough.

Friday was better. He hated it only for a few minutes. Both times we walked to Chic-Fil-A because they had free iced coffee all week.

I liked getting out, and would have continued the tradition, but on Saturday my incision was really sore, so I decided to revert to letting others do everything for me (like going to Chic-fil-a for my iced coffee). It was just as well, because we had a big day scheduled.
First, it was Dalton's turn to wear this amazing onesie. If you don't get it, click this link, read this post, or just appreciate the adorableness of father/son matching outfits.

Shortly after our playdate, my dad arrived from New York. Dalton has now officially met all his grandparents!
|He even woke up for a little of the visit!|
I'm not saying it's THE reason to have a baby, but if you are on the fence, just consider that unless you are actually rich, like really rich, it's the closest you'll probably ever get to a life of leisure. I haven't made myself a single meal since he was born, unless you count putting delicious food others have made in the microwave. Carolyn and John brought us lunch from Chic-Fil-A for our baby playdate. My dad brought all the ingredients for his famous jambalaya, and not only made it for us, but cleaned everything up too. And he even brought over Wegmans bagels and coffee for breakfast this morning.
All you have to do is trade some sleep. Well worth it.
