Wow, its been 6 wks tomorrow since Keilah 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. 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 and 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 my new routine of fitting my health in each day. How?! I feel hungry all the time - nursing i guess? So i am hoping exercise will help me lose the last few pounds of pregnancy weight as well as the little bit more i am hoping to lose. It still amazes me that we have two children!? God is too good to me. Loving them both - Dassa with her independence and imagination and Keilah with her sweet smiles and baby smell!
Keilah Abigail was born on May 19th at 2:19pm. I had prayed for shorter birth, less pain and no tearing and to go sooner than my due date! I got a shorter labor by 7hrs! No tearing! Still excruciating pain but only officially 7 minutes of pushing! And she was born 8 days early! She was 1/4" smaller head but 8ounces heavier than dassa, 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 :))
