3 weeks (since I've looked at me)

My little peanut is almost 3 weeks old. 
I have ordered his book that I made during my pregnancy and just have to slap stamps on the rest of the birth announcements. 
So what to do now? 
I have been looking into getting a nice abdominal binder.  The one from the hospital was actually pretty affective BUT I had a horrible reaction from the scrub they used before surgery.  I had hives all over my abdomen and back, wherever they scrubbed me pre-operatively.  The binder I had was put on right over that soap.  The nurses thought it was a reaction from the elastic in the binder.  Not so, grasshopper.  I had very distinct marks where the soap was applied. 
So I had to give me poor skin about a week to recover.  Now that I'm done taking antihistamines and my hives are gone, I want to start to get my body back.  No longer a baby hotel, I want to be able to wear regular clothes, not stretchy workout stuff. 
Funny because my husband would tell me it's not something I need to spend money on, seeing as how we are both on leave right now. 
I am impetuous and just bought one online.  Should arrive on Tuesday, as well as my pregnancy book. 

A little bit about my life right now.  This is my 3rd baby.  3rd boy on top of that.  He is doing well.  He's almost 3 weeks old and about 10 pounds.  He sleeps about 4-5 hours at a time.  That's about the most exciting news I have right now.  My oldest son is 5 and just started school.  My second son is 4 and loves hanging out with his new brother and I.  My life has been a menagerie of breast feeding and trying to sleep as well as keeping Sam on schedule for the bus. 

We have had an eventful few weeks of being home.  Funeral and remodeling and all kinds of fun.

We are going to be watching a friend's son tonight.  Fun, fun.
