Julian had his first venture outside the house yesterday – which also happened to be my first venture out of the house postpartum. It was a gorgeous day, so we took a walk to the park as a family. 🙂 He slept the whole time and was nice and cozy in the Moby Wrap, which I have to say is damn comfortable. I’m currently borrowing one from the “carrier library” of the AP group I belong to, but I’m going to be buying my own soon. I really like it. 🙂
Julian and I had our 2-week postpartum check-up with my midwife on Thursday. All is going well with us. I was “officially” released from my 2-week recovery/take it easy time. Julian had another weight check and he’s up to 11 lbs., 2 oz! And we thought Ava was big when she weighed 11 lbs., 6 oz. at her 1-month check-up. My midwife said she’s pretty certain he will be off the scale (her scale only goes up to 13 lbs.) at our 6-week postpartum appointment in 4 weeks. I think she’s probably right. He’s already outgrown some of his 0-3 month outfits.
Our family photoshoot was yesterday and it went quite well. I can’t wait to see the pictures, but I’ll have to wait about a week. Julian got a bit overwhelmed a couple times, but I think we got some good shots, especially since she took over 400 pictures. 😉 Ava did really well too and even helped the photographer take a few pictures. 🙂
