Weight Loss Wednesday – One Month Check In

It’s time for a long overdue check in.  I’m a little over a month in on my weight loss journey and I am currently down 13 pounds.  I have been tracking about 96% of my meals and exercising almost 6 days a week.  There have been a few things that came up that caused me…

Monday Mom Moment: First Sickness

Nothing prepares you for the first time that your child gets sick.  We were lucky and Thomas didn’t get sick for the first time until after his first birthday.  We took him on an airplane and boom hello sickness. Originally we thought that Thomas just had caught a cold.  Runny nose, tired, just wanting to…

Talk the Talk

I’m so upset with myself.  The last post I wrote was all about my weight loss journey that I was about to start on.  I sure can talk the talk can’t I.  Well I sure didn’t walk the walk! I failed…miserably, since August I have done nothing to help myself only continued on the path…

Weight Loss

Losing weight is hard.  To be honest I’m not even sure how much I weighed at the end of my pregnancy.  All I know is that I had the worst case of chub rub on the planet at the end.  It hurt!  A little less than a week after I had Thomas Máté urged me…

Monday Mom Moments – Feeding the Baby

Last night Thomas woke up crying.  Máté picked him up while I made the bottle.  When it was ready Máté put Thomas in my arms.  Thomas drank it very sleepy but at a nice slow even pace.  It made me think of his first days of life where we were teaching him how to drink…

Rough Day

Today was a rough one.  Thomas had his second blood draw to check his AFP level.  Our first one he was a rock star at, he didn’t even cry.  Today, that was a different story.  Not only were there mega amounts of tears, he was poked three times.  Once in the heel, one in the…

Monday Mom Moments – Loving the Small Moments

I am going to start a new series on Monday’s called, Monday Mom Moments.  Little moments about being a Mom that I want to remember and capture. Today, it made me a little sad when Thomas smiled so big when he looked at me.  One day just hearing my voice or hearing his name won’t…

Scanxiety

I have never heard the word scanxiety before until I started looking up hashtags on Instagram.  My last post was on the day of Thomas’s follow up scan.  We were called by our pediatrician the following day to give us the results.  They were not what we had been hoping for.  The original cyst grew,…

Scan Day

  It was scan day here in the Kramlik house.  Every three months  Thomas has to go and have an ultrasound of his abdomen done along with blood work to check his AFP level.  They do this because children with Beckwith Wiedemann are at risk for developing childhood cancer. We went in April to have…

Thomas Month 3

Dear Thomas, How are you three months old already?  I am going to blink and you will be going to school, moving out, and getting married.  That is it, you can’t leave me….EVER!  Ok just kidding, I know you will leave me one day, but it is sooooo far in the future I won’t worry…
