The verdict? Eli did great! I kept waiting to get the page to come rescue my crying baby, but he did fantastic...the page never came! When we came down stairs he was laying on the ground with two other little boys that looked similar in age, just chilling. The girls said that he did fantastic and only got upset once (another crying baby set him off), and was calmed with his bottle.
How did I do? Lord, save me. I would be lying if I said that I did start wishing that I would get the page to rescue my crying baby, "Eli cry...Eli cry". I went into an insanely intense class. It was really really intense cardio, combined with free weights and push-ups. I can't believe how out of shape I was, because I was having to do the 'modified' version of a lot of stuff. What else did I discover? Everything jiggles a lot more after you have a baby. I was also inspired by all of the other moms that were in my class, and just how buff and in shape they are. I looked around and realized that I have no excuses to not be in shape, in some capacity.
So, I don't have any pictures of us at the gym (thank God). But, I have to leave you with some cute recent videos that we took of Eli on his 6 month birthday. He is so chatting now. He is always making zurburts and the sweetest little sounds. Also, he seems to be using inflection, too! So, when I talk to him or ask him questions, I can almost make out what 'would be' his answers. :)
