our week through iPhone - week 94

another week as a family of four!

we didn't really get out as much this week... i feel like i kinda went backwards in my recovery this week & just needed to spend more time taking it easy.  so there were lots of snuggles around the house, naps & short walks to the neighborhood park.  it still made for a pretty good week.

except i had to say goodbye to my parents this week... boo!  i am so grateful to my mom & dad for helping us transition into this new normal with elliot.  they put up with my moody/hormonal self & cheered me on as i was having a few post-labor low points.  they did laundry & dishes, made food & played with parker.  thank you doesn't express my gratitude enough!!  love you guys, so much.

and then sam's parents got here!  not sure how i didn't get any pictures of them, don't worry, i'll find a way to get them in here next week.  i'm seriously not sure how i would have survived these first two weeks without our amazing parents.

also?  i wrote out elliot's birth story!  it may or may not have turned out to be a short novel but there was really nothing i could leave out.  there are lots of pictures & i enjoy reading it, so maybe you will too.  it'll be posted on monday.

this is what our week looked like through iPics.

  1. So sweet! And I bet little Parker seems HUGE now compared to your tiny newborn, huh?

  2. You are doing amazingly well, I dont think I left the house for 6 weeks after Lex was born! Take it easy, rest lots and keep your feet up. Parker looks like he is very happy :)

  3. adorable photos! you look amazing.

  4. I went backwards with my recovery after Easton, too, after about 6-7 days. I think it's because his delivery/birth/recovery was so much better than Bennett's, that I felt like "hey i got this! i can do whatever i want!"... then I just sort of acted normal.... but it caught up with me hardcore. I definitely overdid it and my body was mad at me. So girl - take it EASY! Even if you feel OKAY, you just had a BABY. You're body is moving and shifting and needs you to stay off your feet!

  5. Aww, absolutely precious pics. I love the one of the brothers laying together, and the last one is so sweet!! I hope you start feeling better, I can't remember but I'm sure it's normal for it to take a while! After all, you just created a little human!!

  6. Amy-You look beautiful, especially after having a second child!

  7. Awww, so sweet! I love the pics of both of your boys together. :) Hope you're feeling much better this week!

  8. I was just thinking about what we were doing one week ago! Cannot believe it has already been a week - So glad things are going better for you! Hug ALL your boys for us! We love you! oxoxox

  9. I LOVE these pics! I can't wait to have these same pics with both my boys! Only 2 more months! :)

  10. The one of Elliot looking at a happy Parker is just too precious!

  11. love the very last picture. so adorable!!

  12. I love that last photo of little Elliot looking up at you!
