I can’t believe it, but it’s been more than three weeks since our family changed dramatically and LM entered this world. The days go by faster than fast, and weeks have flown by. But we definitely have been busy! And while I’m not cleared to run yet, I’v been trying to stay active as my body heals by walking nearly every day and working to heal my diastasis recti with some simple exercises. Here’s to hoping that in 3 more weeks, I’ll be running (or more like run/walking) again!
Anyway, here are some highlights of the past few weeks.
We took LM downtown and hit up one of the Cleveland signs. We took a similar picture with FW when he was just a few weeks old!
When we’re not walking too far (and it’s not too hot), I love wearing LM for walks.
We also made B a Father’s Day gift. Nicole came over with her little girl and we did some crafting on the porch!
Trying to entertain FW while also nursing and taking care of LM is no joke, even with B around. So, we’ve been getting creative. Like visiting the fish at the library.
And playing with all the toys there.
And hanging out on our porch!
Heck, FW even enjoyed going to the store with me. Maybe because while we were getting groceries someone gave him a free milk?
When it’s been hot, FW has loved playing with his water table.
And, of course, goofing around with his old bff Celia. Even though they no longer go to the same daycare, we still try to get them together!
I’ve enjoyed having summery drinks – like this mojito made with mint from my sister-in-law’s garden.
And food that I didn’t really indulge in during pregnancy – like pope!
Some days I’ve had time to bake. Our CSA gave us some strawberries and rhubarb, so I made a crisp with them.
FW even got in on the fun and helped me make some of his favorite muffins.
And we’ve been introducing LM to everyone in the family when we can – she loved meeting all her cousins!
Those are some of the highlights. Hopefully in the weeks to come, I’ll have some more activity-based ones to share. Until then, keep your fingers crossed we get some sleep soon!
