yay!/boo. - the postpartum edition

whee! here we go:

the hub's dream came true - the bean has gorgeous gray-blue eyes. yay!
they'll most likely change as she gets older. boo.

i lost ten pounds as soon as she was born. yay!
i still have a fun jiggly belly, similar to my first belly pic. boo.

i'm sporting fab extra cleavage thanks to the wonderfully nourishing boob juice. yay!
these damn tits are so heavy, i can barely hang on long enough to shower without a bra. boo.

i got some ultra-strength motrin from the doc. yay!
it's for the tennis ball-sized 'roid and coochie stitch discomfort. boo.

my maternity clothes are almost too big for me now. yay!

my pre-pregnancy wardrobe is still way, way outta my reach. boo.

from the kid: "wow, mom, you really don't look pregnant at all anymore!" yay!
also from the kid: "haha, you have to use
these?? [pointing to my stash of airplane pillow-size maxi pads]" boo.

breastfeeding keeps old "auntie flo" from returning. yay!
postpartum bleeding, which isn't a period, can last up to SIX WEEKS. boo.

but don't let me fool ya. i wouldn't give back any of these "boo."s for the world, because they're all temporary. the joy of the bean is forever.
