Belly 2 wks Post-Partum

My favorite jeans are back! Here are a few pictures of me 2 weeks after the birth. I'm down to within 10 lbs of my pre-pregnancy weight already...the weight seems to be falling off without much effort. In fact, I'm having to consciously eat foods with fat to keep my up my breast milk for Larkin. To be honest, while a part of me is excited to be getting my figure back, another part of me really misses being pregnant (I actually really loved my belly)!

These belly pictures come with a funny story. We were taking the pictures of me in the red shirt when we were interrupted by the arrival of our window cleaners. At some point this morning, I changed my shirt and then we regrouped to finish taking the belly picture. The window washers were still there though and they happened to be cleaning the window next to where we keep our bird, Snowy. Snowy was so frightened by the window washer that he flew all over the house until he found us upstairs in our bathroom. As you can see, he found comfort by landing on my head!
