I'm Nikki. I love God and my Jeremy and my sweet baby Ryland everyone else, too.
I'm 5'6". I used to weigh ~170 pounds, then I was 140something for a while. I've also been around 130 and even below that. I'm not really focusing on all that right now. Now I just want to be healthy enough to be the best mom for Ryland.
I'll talk about my weight ups and down and running, but that's not what will make me better. I'm working to love myself better, treat myself better, and be a better Christian and wife. Expect to see a lot of posts about my son Ryland.

I managed to eat enough the last couple days to gain a little back. It may or may not have been due to shower cake.
It’s tough mentally to try to gain.
I got decent sleep last night, thanks to Jeremy doing the last feeding before bed. I was asleep before he even put Ryland back in his crib.
Because of that, I was hoping for a workout, but then I started feeling nauseous.
My idea to keep my endurance up when I can’t run is to alternate between jumping rope for 2 min. and the stationary bike for 5. Maybe I’ll feel better later and still be able to do it.
Sometimes I wonder what the point of a registry is. So many baby clothes with the tags ripped off. I mean, I’m thankful for the gifts, but I wish people would think about how they’d feel in the same situation.
On that note, is it bad that today I’ll start deciding which gifts to put in an upcoming consignment sale?
I think the gripe water is helping, at least some, because he didn’t spend all night grunting.
Last night Jeremy got pretty angry with a bottle of saline nose drops because the opening is too big to get in Ryland’s tiny nostrils and it was running all over his face. Jeremy was so worried about Ryland’s eyes getting hurt.
Ryland makes the cutest face that looks like he’s saying, “ooooh.” Eventually I’ll get a picture of it.
