Food: She is such a good eater! She gets food at breakfast and dinner. We give her as much food from our plates as we can. The things she has tried is kind of outstanding when you think about it: filet mignon, chicken curry, lamb, naan, tons of cheeses, olives, mushrooms, etc. The only thing she hasn't liked was this German jar of baby food that was just meat. She loves the ones with fish though. She eats a snack each day - the only one that is really difficult for her is the zwieback. She makes a huge mess and it is doubtful that much is getting into her mouth. The dogs eat a lot though!
Play: Now that our stuff is here Ladybug has so many toys to choose from - I didn't realize that she had so many! In the living room she loves playing with her Fisher Price walker/piano. She doesn't walk with it yet, so she sits in front of it and plays with the instruments. When I take her down to the our home gym in the basement she usually plays with foam blocks in her pack and play. We don't do a lot of playing yet up in her room but she has her books up there and some other bigger toys.
Sleep: I am so thankful that the transition back to the crib has gone so well (knock wood). I've been putting her down about 8 PM, which is later than I would like, but we are still settling back into our routine. She wakes up about 5:30 and I bring her into my bed for some milk - we usually wake up again around 9. So far she has been sleeping outside the crib for first nap around 11, but every afternoon she naps in her crib.
As for me: I am so off track now with my weight. As you might recall, I had not yet lost all my pregnancy weight and I put on some unknown amount during this two months of living in a hotel without a kitchen and gym access. To be honest I am a little scared to find out where I am at. My clothes are very snug though. I'm hoping now that we are settled into the house, eating at home and just generally more active will help. One of the first rooms we set up was the gym downstairs and even if I can only get 25 minutes on the bike it's better than nothing. Our regular stroller is still missing with our furniture, but oddly enough my jogging stroller is here and just pushing the thing for a walk feels like a workout! I haven't had a good run in a few months so I plan on taking it nice and slow. R got me a fitbit for my birthday and I have to say it motivates me to get in my steps for the day. :)

Anyway, on to the craziness with our stuff. When the movers first arrived, they started bringing all sorts of stuff into our house that was not ours. Desk chair, lamps, fans - we didn't bring much of anything that plugged in because we didn't want to deal with converters and the like. I think everything we do have that plugs in we had in our suitcase already - laptops, phones, tablet. So R tries to tell them it wasn't our stuff. The problem was I guess the movers have been really bad about labeling crates. Not just our movers, but poor Agnes (something) whose stuff was supposed to go from CT to HI but somehow ended up at our house in Germany. Haha. So they took that stuff back, unpacked the stuff that was ours - but we are still missing a crate full of stuff. Most of it seems to be furniture, from what we can tell on the packing list. Again, our house is partially furnished, so it's not a big deal but still. Hopefully our stuff turns up soon. One of my friends told me that her missing stuff never turned up. :( Then we go through the process of getting reimbursed for missing/damaged items.
Never a dull moment here!

Anyway, I'm still on my first pack (but at the end) and my period is back. Yay for normal!
Now if only I could get the crazy PMS bloat under control! :)
