Bye Bye Mimi...

We are sad today because my mom (Mimi) got on a plane back to Florida.  We are sad to lose the help, I am sad to lose the ability to interact with someone that doesn't just eat/poop/sleep, and I am sad that as of now, we won't be seeing Mimi again until December.

Needless to say, I have cried a ton today.

I will never be able to thank my mom enough for all of her help over the past 9 days. 

Before Mimi left, we filled our tummy (please ignore my yuck arm - the green/yellow/ black in some places is from all of my blown veins from the platelet line).

Then we got some final Mimi cuddles

And took a picture of three generations before heading out

After we dropped my mom off at the airport we ran to Target for our first outing as a family of 3.  We were probably laughed at by several people in the parking lot as I tried to explain to Alex how the car seat and stroller work.  But, we figured it out and got everything we needed!

We are all home resting now - Miss Piggy (who is now eating 3.5 ounces every 2.5-3 hours) is sleeping on me (as is Oliver) and Daddy is doing some things around the house. 

On a different note, since I shared my weight gain with everyone over the past 9 months, I'm going to be vain and share my weight loss as of now.  I am down 19 pounds as of this morning and here is what I look like 9 days post delivery.  I haven't done much to help lose weight - I'm not breastfeeding and I am not dieting - I'm just cuddling a baby girl and getting little sleep.
