I've been somewhat devastated (NOT PPD) that the weather outside has been nothing short of gorgeous on this most beautiful month of the year. I have been cooped up inside recovering and caring for my baby boi. Yesterday I walked the longest distance at one time since my c-section. I loved the color of the flowers and buildings as I walked through ASU's Main campus. The warm sun contrasted so perfectly with the cool breeze. Needless to say by the time I got back to the car I was limping and my left hip hurt like I had a giant bruise on it.
Oh well. Worth it.
(p.s. this does not look like a 9-day-old)
I'm feeling and getting so much better. I'm finally able to wake up in the middle of the night to help feed little-big baby. This is especially important (and a blessing) because of the impending change for Elliott at school.
Elliott starts treating patients full-time in the clinic next week. I am so proud and excited for him! Of course, he doesn't ever get nervous or arrogant about this big transition, just excited. He takes on so much with ease and a reserved confidence that most people, especially me, don't have. Fortunately, his days of caring for two babies (physically) are coming to an end.
Thank you to everyone who brought meals, visited us in the hospital and just came to hold Beckett while I was recovering at home! We love you all so much, especially our family who has been so loving and selfless in wanting to help out.
