A week later out of the hospital, I'm feeling a LOT better. I haven't cried since friday night. I was down last week, I felt like I was never going to feel better and I wasn't going to be able to run this house and do everything I need and want to do. I'm still not 100% and for some reason my back just continues to ache in different spots. My legs and feet are still really sore and I'm wondering if that's from the fluids stretching my skin. I am sleeping better and can lay on my sides a bit until it starts to hurt too much and then I'm back onto my back. The incisions are looking really good though and hopefully I won't have much scarring from the whole ordeal. Can you believe I lost 35lbs in 1 week?? lol
Last night was our 2nd trip out as a family of 6. I've only left the house like 5 times total since Mia's birth. We went to the groccery store and had so many people gawk and say something about the kids. I don't think many people must bring 4 kids shopping? lol Everyone though was nice and all positive. Damien kept looking at people in his basket with daddy saying "dis! dis!" pointing at my basket with Mia. Most people just smiled as he showed off his sister but one lady started talking to him. She said, "is that your baby sister?" And he shook his head yes real big. Dominic had to get in on it too and said "that's my baby Momma Mia!" I wish he'd quit calling her that. Grrr! My Dad deserves a swift kick in the ass for playing that Abba record. I had one lady ask me if they were all ours. Nice!!! Another said they were beautiful. It was a great trip and the kids were really good. I felt bad for Alex as she was a bit wet from a swimming birthday party and you could tell she was beat.
I know everyone loves pictures so here's some recent ones of her and the other kids. Mia's little arms and legs fly constantly so they might be a little blurry. Enjoy!
