Thanks so much everyone for the wonderful congratulations and warm wishes on my last thread/baby announcement! So heartwarming to read all the lovely replies--I really appreciate it!
I haven't been taking many WIW pics lately--too busy enjoying the baby! I've been resting more as well, so lounging in sweats and pajamas a lot. Here are a few pics from the last week and a half. All I can say is, thank goodness for breastfeeding--I look like I had a boob job and the weight is just melting off...I've lost about 15 lb in the last two weeks despite eating a bunch and not exercising. I'm still about 20 lb above my pre-preg weight and I still don't fit into my old jeans/pants yet, but today I wore my Michael Kors faux wrap dress and for the first time I felt like I had my old figure back! This dress was made for apples! And of course, had to add some smiling baby pics just for fun!
1-2. 3/10. Four days postpartum. Took the kids to their swim lesson...one dad remarked, "Last week you were huge, and this week you're not so huge anymore!" Thanks, I think--LOL!

3-4. 3/11. Five days postpartum. At DS1's preschool for his birthday celebration. Repeat of my earlier outfit with black sweater and polka dot skirt.
5-6. 3/12. Six days postpartum. This isn't really a WIW, just to show that I still have a significant pregnant-looking pooch when I wear regular shirts. Baby started smiling at six days old--that's a new record for my kids (I think the other ones started around 2 weeks)--he's a happy baby!
7-8. 3/17. Eleven days postpartum. To the park with the kids. My boyfriend jeans are the only regular jeans I can fit into, because I had sized up.

Gap striped T (Used a BeBand for extra coverage)
Kut boyfriend jeans
9-14. 3/20. Two weeks postpartum. I felt like I was wearing a "magic dress" because I finally felt like I had my old figure back! Went to DD's school to show the class art auction project that I had organized (working on it from one week before to two weeks after delivery...as if I wasn't busy enough, LOL!) And took baby to his two week checkup--more happy baby smiles!
