Wedding Round Up

Sunday, April 18, 2010

Things have been a bit wild here in the Unbitten house.

The baby went through one hell of a growth spurt. Normally she is a happy, easy baby, but this past week was brutal.

I'm nursing her so I spent the week ravenous and deliriously tired (and a little whiny if I'm being honest). At least she's cute.

The crazy week was topped off with a huge serving of insecurity.

We went to a wedding for one of my husband's coworkers last night. I used to work in the same building so the guest list included tons of people I haven't seen since my pre-baby days.

I was ridiculously nervous about the whole thing.

I'm within 10 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight, but stuff isn't exactly where it used to be. I haven't had a haircut since January. I didn't get a chance to buy the killer new outfit like I had planned.

I'm normally pretty okay with my appearance, but this wedding put me in tail spin. (I blame the sleep deprivation.)

Once the wedding actually started, everything was fine.

I didn't look any use for the wear than the rest of guests. I got to eat a fantastic meal and show off my family.

And the kids put on a good show.

My three year old made a complete scene on the dance floor. He busted out moves I've never seen before and even picked up a brides maid or two.

My baby was the best accessory in the room in a silly frilly dress complete with hair bow.

It the end it was fun, but I'm ready for a low key day and a return normalcy this week.

Sounds like an awesome time! Hope your nipples feel better, lol

At least your kid didn't put his hand in the wedding cake before it was cut like mine did!!! (Despite repeated warnings not to touch!!!)

I think weddings are bad for everyone's self-esteem except the bride's (hopefully).

And growth spurts are THE WORST!

here's to normalcy!

With two cuties in tow I'm sure you were lookin' good. I hope this is a calmer week.

When nursing those growth spurts can be hell. You feel like you have an attachment at your breast all day.

I am glad you had fun at the wedding!

I would love to see your son's dance moves! Sweet! My husband is trying to convince me to go to a family wedding later this summer (when our third kiddo will still be a newborn), and I am resisting for every single one of the reasons you mentioned. I'll still be in barely-getting-a-shower mode! But, your post gives me hope. =>

Also, I hope this week goes more smoothly for you!

I have an award for ya!

ugh. growthspurts. ugh. my 3mo old just ended one too...Sometimes during her growth spurts I feel as if she's just another accessory with how often she's nursing. And she's not, it's just that she's attached that much.

dang, I think Blogger might have lost my first comment; if it posts, delete this one, but I said something to the effect that the wedding sounded like fun and too cute about your son making his moves on and off the dance floor :)

hoping next week your wee one returns to her happy and less ravenous self (at least for a few days so you can get caught up on your sleep)

betty

Funny how those things can take on a whole new meaning in our head's, isn't it? I'm glad you ended up on the enjoyment side of things. Three year old dance-offs and frilly dresses do have a way of making things better!

it helps us all so much when you post your thoughts like this! I still have insecurities myself about my look/weight. I'm not obsessive about it, but I certainly notice myself. Thanks for sharing so that we all know this is normal. Although, I;, sure with your adorable daughter at hand at the wedding everyone focused on her brilliance and then the proud Mama syndrome kicks in (which I like a heck of a lot better than insecure Mama!)

babies have a tendency to suck the brains out of you... So it's ok to go a little crazy sometimes.

I'm glad you got a night out... they're good every once in a while and I'm sure that all your former co-workers were saying to themselves "Damn I wish I looked that good right after having my baby..."

Oh man, I feel sorry for your boobs!

Glad the wedding turned out okay.

I can relate to the insecurities about appearance. I often tell myself to just get dressed and go have fun.

It's great that everything worked out in the end. Your son and daughter sound like they had a fabulous time, also.

Hmm, I thought I left a comment. I'll try again.

"I blame the sleep deprivation." Yep, even though I'm long past the point of nursing a baby, I still find sleep deprivation causes me to blow all things out of proportion. Glad you enjoyed the wedding.

The baby was your best accessory. Love it.

Please don't fret too much about the weight...people love you know matter what. The people you want to love you anyway!!

:)
