    "One thing I do know is that I was blind and now I see." John 9:1-41
We're officially one of those families. The type with an extremely loud child that has to sit at the back of the church and go for frequent laps just to burn off energy. Remy's cute bird noises have turned into ear piercing screams. Like SCREAMING for joy at the top of her lungs. It's cute when we're at home, but not so much during a long and serious Catholic service. Then when I try to cover her mouth with my hand she licks me. Honestly, Geoff and I can't complain. We actually have to stifle our laughs. We were truly blessed with such an amazing girl. I prayed for her for such a long time, and my prayers were answered. And then some. 
Also, it is the anniversary weekend of her and her cousin's baptism (@abighousefull). What a special time of year. Always ready to help unload the dishwasher, clean dishes or not. More importantly, it's Friday!

jolly jumper tummy trainer

JollyJumperTummyTrainerOn one of our many pre-baby shopping trips, I had purchased a tummy trainer by Jolly Jumper. I had read that belly binding would aid in the natural healing process postpartum. My interest was therefore solely from a health perspective. This tummy trainer in particular said that it would:

– Instantly shape and slim your waist and tummy

– Help strengthen your stomach muscles to return to pre-pregnancy state quickly

– May be worn discreetly under clothing

Jolly-Jumper-Tummy-TrainerIt was quite inexpensive, so I thought that if it did any of the things that it promised to then it would be well worth the $30 investment.

I began wearing the tummy trainer a few days after coming home from the hospital. I wore it religiously during the day for nearly 4 weeks. These are my thoughts on the trainer:

Pros

– It helped with my overall posture, especially when breastfeeding

– It was very easy to put on and wear comfortably throughout the day

– It made me feel more secure and held together

Cons

– It was not discreet under clothing and thus couldn’t be worn in public

– It didn’t conform to my body nicely

– It was very loud when taking it off 

– I don’t actually think that it makes you skinnier (which is what it says on the package, although was not a concern of mine)

Overall, I really like the idea of belly binding after having a baby. I just think that Jolly Jumper is not the best product to accomplish that. I loved the feeling of wearing the tummy trainer, however given that it fit improperly, I would seek out a different product in the event of my next baby. ;-)
