Postpartum belly dancing :-)

Today is a day that I've been looking forward to for some time - my return to dance class. :) I'm positively thrilled. I had my 6 week postpartum visit to the ob/gyn yesterday, and everything is all healed, so I'm cleared for all of my regular pre-baby activity. I'm within 3 pounds of my pre-pregnancy weight; I was hoping to have lost it all by now, but alas. Breastfeeding seems to hold on to a few pounds, no matter what, until you wean.

But I can't wait for class tonight. I've been pumping my little heart out, and have plenty of fresh milk in the refrigerator for Mike to use tonight plus a budding freezer stash. So, Anne will be fine, and I've been longing for this "me time" for awhile now. Dance is just such a creative and social outlet for me.

I've also been working on that pair of socks, my other creative outlet. :) The first sock is done, and I just turned the heel on the other one. It's going very well. The gusset vexes me a bit, but otherwise, it's cake. Well, except for that kitchener stitch thing on the toes. It doesn't look as "seamless" as I'd like, but I'm getting there. Practice makes perfect. :)
