Mind/Body After Baby: Month 2

Hi!  So I know I just posted Month 1 of Mind/Body After Baby two weeks ago but I was late on that post due to the holidays.  So we are already to month 2!!  Cooper turned 2 months on Saturday and all I have to say is that time really does fly!  I feel like we brought him home just yesterday.

Cooper Month 2.2


So much has changed already!  He started smiling at us (yay!) and he is much more aware of his surroundings.  He really no longer does grumpy baby resting face (although I found a photo of this from last month!).

We have “conversations” now, which consist of us talking to him and him babbling back.  He is still an excellent sleeper and can even put himself to sleep–I swaddle him, give him his pacifier and turn on ocean noise and he is asleep within 30 minutes.

He has actually begun to not scream and cry during baths, which makes me think he might start liking them!  This is a good thing since we’ve recently had several poop explosions that necessitated a bath!

In addition to his gorgeous smiles and eye tracking, he also does some pretty classic crying faces.  I mean sticking his lip out with a little quiver.  It is priceless!  I am not sure laughter from us is his goal but I can only giggle when I see his little pouty lip!

Naps during the day can be a little challenging.  He doesn’t like to be put down and usually naps when he is in a carrier or the stroller or the car.  It makes it difficult to get anything done although I often wear him in a wrap around the house!



I’m back!  Ok, I’m not 100% where I was pre-pregnancy but I’m definitely back to taking classes and I feel pretty good.  I’ve been taking a Babies on Board barre class with the little guy, which is perfect for a great workout and quality baby time!

I’ve also managed to get to some classes on the weekend while the Hubs watches little Coops, which has been so great.  There has been a huge improvement in my fitness level from last month.  I really feel more like my pre-pregnancy self in terms of fitness.  I’m still working on bringing my abs back but on the overall, I feel great!

 I haven’t weighed myself recently but at about six weeks I still had 10 lbs to lose.


This is a work in progress.  I am still dealing with anxiety but I’m feeling a lot stronger than I was at month 1.  It’s funny because I expected to be tired and overwhelmed after Coops was born but I really didn’t expect to feel so much anxiety on a daily basis.  Luckily I have some great tools for dealing with this anxiety and my family has been super supportive in helping me!

My mom even visited recently and we had a ton of fun!

Readers, do you turn to your family for support?  Have you ever had a “comeback?”
