According to my in-law's bathroom scales, I have lost over 4.5kg in the past few months! Yay! I am so excited. I had thought I'd lost a fair bit, but still a ways to go before I can fit my winter clothes yet...not sure if I'm going to make it back into the 'skinny jeans' as even my calves are too big to get into them now, but hey, I can always hope. Grin. All the pushing Munchkin up and down our local walkway must be working. I started shunting him around the local swimming pool last week too. My mum got us a little floaty thing that he can sit in, so I push and kick one way, then do a weird kind of breaststroke on my back the other - the floaty ring mostly keeps up with me in my wake, with the occassional redirection with a hand when needed! Munchkin is okay with swimming, but it is a very serious affair. The odd smile tilts his mouth ever so slightly upward when I blow raspberries at him, but otherwise he is silent and serious, gazing this way and that, dangling his little hands over the sides. Very cute. I take him in the backpack, because he heads groundward after about a minute on my hip. So between that, the floaty thing, the bag of towels and togs, and Munchkin, I must look like a packhorse! I guess it's a good thing I got used to carrying lots of bags and things when I spent time overseas, so it doesn't bother me at all!

So glad my scales were nice to you - wish they were to me too ;-)
Love your description of Munchkin's pool experiences!!

Well done - I have gained 2kgs lately, that's what happens when your baby out-grows her reflux and you're no longer spending half the way walking her up and down stairs ;-)!

Ah, well a happier baby is at least a good thing. I am guessing you don't really miss all that up and down, up and down business?Have you noticed whether Lydia has been drinking any less too? Munchkin has gone from a peak of 1300ml a day to 900-1000 since being on 3 decent meals of food, but I know that Miss Lydia has not has as easy a road with her solids.
Glad that things are better without the reflux!
