Wow! It has been 6 weeks, tomorrow, since Keikei was added to our number, making us a family of four! What happened to it just being the two of us gallivanting around?
The first two weeks were HELL! Nursing was so much harder this time. I asked myself on more than one occasion what we were thinking having another, but after a lot of sobbing and lanolin, we hit week three. The boobs healed up and my outlook on things brightened A LOT!
Getting out with the girls by myself is not as hard as I thought now that I have a method. Looking forward to getting my clearance to exercise so I can work out a new routine fitting in exercise each day. How?! I feel hungry all the time - nursing I guess? So, I am hoping the exercise will help me lose the last few pounds of pregnancy weight as well as the little bit more I hope to lose.
It still amazes me that we have two children!? God is too good to us. I am loving them both - Dassa-Beanie with her independence and imagination and Keikei with her sweet smiles and baby smell!
Keilah Abigail was born on May 19th at 2:19 pm.
I prayed for:
shorter birth, less pain and no tearing and to go sooner than my due date!
A shorter labor by 7hrs!
Still had excruciating pain but only officially 7 minutes of pushing!
She was born 8 days early!
She was 1/4" smaller head but 8 ounces heavier than Dassa-Beanie, and the same length. Her belly button fell off at only three days and she is perfectly healthy!
We feel so blessed and content with our two beautiful girls :))
My Current Mantra
Walk humbly with God and do the work at your hands....
