It’s been a little over 2 weeks now. Brad goes back to work today. The last few days I’ve really healed up well. THANK GOODNESS! I told Brad that I’m well enough for him to go back to work. As much as I’ve been loving the extra help and quality time with that wonderful man, we both want to fall back into our routines…well I need to start a new one now since it’s not just Samantha, but you know what I mean =)
Lets talk hormones….. boy did I have a hormone dump after having Sean. I’m so thankful with how I handle it though. I feel so terrible for the poor women who have to go through depression. Having a toddler + new baby + dealing with recovery + being depressed = not a happy mix. I did a lot of crying, but thankfully, it was out of joy. Being thankful I’m not pregnant anymore, thankful for my sweet little man, reminiscing over Samantha being that small, watching Toy Story 3 (yes, I was balling, BALLING I tell you). As much as crying can be annoying and embarrassing sometimes, I’m glad the tears were out of joy. I had a similar experience after having Samantha and I was happy it was the same this time around too.
Last week we visited family and friends down in OC. We were itching to introduce them to Sean. Samantha was in hog heaven. She played with her cousins, went to birthday parties, and played in several pools for hours. I don’t know who had more fun, Samantha or Brad and I watching how much fun she was having. Toddlers are work, but they rock too =) In fact I’m so happy I’m finally healed to the point where I can move around again. With my hormone dump I also get my energy and inspiration back. Staying home to heal is torture when all I want to do is play with Samantha and get out of the house. I’m dying to go on outings with the kids. I’m looking forward to how the Summer is going to be with these two beh behs.
Oh by the way… look at mr. man’s blondish/gingerish hair!!!! I wonder if he’ll keep the color. SO PRECIOUS!
