Happy Thursday!! The Smile We've Waited For...

Hi everyone!

We gave Mr. Lovely his bath this morning in preparation for his weekly Thursday photo shoot. Up until this point we see what we think are smiles...but we aren't really sure if they are the real thing.

Well, he is six weeks old today and these are snippets of his photo shoot in order as I post the photos.

So, this is the first photo where we have to ask ourselves... "Doesn't this look like a smile?"

We see a smile in his eyes here?

Kind-of a smile here...definitely a happy baby...

Let's try a sitting position.

a stomach position...I think I see a little something here, don't you?

ok, on the back again...he's after that fist like he's hungry.

Took off some clothes to see some feet...
and what have we got here...
Is that not a smile?
A different shot...a bit closer...

Look at can see he wants to smile!

Proof Positive Baby...
This Baby is definitely smiling!!!!
A little blurry...but that is the real deal!!!
A little leftover smile...

Then get open-mouthed smile.
It has to be...
His eyes are happy, this is only two seconds after the first real smile.
Now he's got a little mischievous look.
I also weighed him this morning and he was 10. 4 pounds which is 6/10 more than last Thursday.
So, six weeks ago he weighed 6 pounds, 4.4 ounces. That means he's gained four pounds in six weeks.
I talked to a doctor tonight at the gym and he said that that means I am burning 500-700 calories a day in just breast feeding Mr. Lovely. And I honestly believe it because I went to the gym last night...ate 2,500 calories yesterday and lost one pound.
Can you believe it?
Oh, and you heard me right folks, I have returned to the gym this week.
I hit my legs last night for the first time in six weeks and thought I was going to die.
Then, I hit my biceps and back tonight.
Tomorrow I plan to hit my chest and triceps.
My plan is to get to the gym three times a week for three straight weeks and then hit if five times a week on the fourth week.
I'm playing the calorie game one day at a time, but I'm definitely back to counting.
I want to make sure I take in enough for Mr. Lovely.
Well, that's it for now.
I hope you're all doing well.
Sunshine Mama


  1. Mischievious because he is keeping us up all night!! I have an unconfirmed smile sighting from two weeks a go the Mr Lovely did for me over two weeks ago however I had no witnesses....Daddy Rainmaker

  2. What a sweet, sweet boy! That is definitely a smile, and he sure looks like a very jolly little man. =)

    Good job getting to the gym, and I say HURRAY for taking it one day at a time with counting calories. That's really all we can do, right?

    Congrats, Sunshine Mama!

  3. He is precious, SM! :) Great job getting back into the exercise!! I've been slacking BAD the last few months! :(

  4. I really feel lazy when I read what all you do. I don't know how you find the time or energy. I can't wait to get back into reading about your life.. I have missed out on so much!
