Fall Fashion Week: 13 Days Postpartum

I finally got dressed after intending on doing lots of things like folding all the newly cleaned/previously soiled or milk drenched baby laundry that Joel did (bless him). But mostly napped with Kai in between feedings. And showered! So that was productive. I then got into the big bin that I had already packed some clothes (for our impending move) in to see if anything fit. And found this old shirt. Which I like more than I remember.

I am wearing:

Broken Hearts Shirt: Ross

Pants: Old Navy Maternity (I find you people that fit back into normal jeans so soon after delivery both strange and impressive).

Earrings: Some boutique in Salt Lake I wandered into years ago.

Kai is wearing:

Classic white onsie: gift

Polka Dot Leg warmers: hand me down

Adorable tootsies: SJ Inc

Minutes after taking these photos I put him in the Moby Wrap in an attempt to get some stuff done and instantly felt a rush if warmth in the form of urine escaping his diaper and flooding all over me and him. And while getting things cleaned up started sweating up a storm (which is good in the getting rid of water retention area). I am now wearing sweatpants and an old shirt of Joel's that has paint on it.

Those are cool earrings. They really pop out nicely from your lovely hair.

Oh man...I think I was peed on daily the first three months (and I have a girl!). I went through so many pairs of sweats thanks to that.

You are looking so incredible... your belly is back down... what the what?? Way to go Mama.

I remember those first few months, I changed clothes so often! Fun times. I really loved using a moby wrap-they just take forever to wrap!

Can't believe how skinny your face looks already! you look great!

Looking good mama! So glad you're participating! It's so hard getting dressed especially after having a baby!

You look so cute, it makes me feel bad that I struggle daily to get out of sweats and I don't have any children. I plan on coming over tomorrow morning!

I love finding "old" shirts and falling in love with them a second time - looks so good. And your hair is lovely btw - why does mine NEVER look like this?

I just love you. I was back in regular pants about 2 weeks after giving birth, if not earlier. But I never ever look as cute as you, who might still be in maternity clothes (I know you posted this awhile ago). I just love you.

Holly, I just now saw this. And just when I needed it. I love you too.
