A little update on me!!

I finally got around to dying my hair. When I was pregnant with Ty I dyed my hair ONCE very early and felt very very guilty about it so from there on out I didn't do anything like that. Needless to say, my genetically gifted grey hair was coming through at an alarming rate. I don't mind grey hair....but I'm not ready to go there.....yet. (grin) So, as you can see....I'm back to brown....with a hint of red. (brown is my God given color)(but you know how that goes)

I have also been busy with lots of.......



nose kisses......



and more nose kisses. My son is obsessed with nose kisses. I get them all the time. How lucky am I hugh?

Physically I am doing much better but have a LONG ways to go. I have lost a total of 29 pounds since Ty's birth nine days ago. That's a LOT of weight to loose in a short time...but I'm OK with it. I have a lot to loose. My blood pressure is still elevated but manageable. I think as time passes, it will continue to get better.

Emotionally, I am doing so much better. I am throwing myself into things that have to be done and that keeps my mind off things. I am gratefully for my three year old being here..it makes me feel useful. Over all, I am doing well. I still avoid talking to people beyond family and close friends but I hope that changes soon. I am just not at the stage where I can talk about my experiences freely without bawling my eyes out. LOL Baby steps people....baby steps.

When I saw your first pic, before even reading your post, I thought DANG beck's face has thinned out a lot! 29lbs! Seriously! Crazy! Yay for a bit more physical freedom and less swelling! You like to stay busy so I would assume that the weight should come off fairly easily for you. I love your color BTW! The golden glow is gorgeous! I just woke up from a nap and I was dreaming about u saying u were looking for a job then I offered to babysit for you while you were at work. Funny huh!
Well I love you my friend, I am incredibly proud of you and I hope u have an amazing day!

So totally with you on the gray. I'm not ready to go there yet either. Though I had to laugh, (and cheer) when I saw that my brother, 4 yrs my junior, has WAY more gray than me. Ha ha.

I'm glad the blood pressure is improving and you're absolutely right, baby steps are where it's at.
Hugs!
