Ellen and David left this morning so we are on our own again. A family of four fending for ourselves. I have been having constant headaches so my midwife gave me strict instructions to chill out and sleep when baby sleeps. She said there is such thing as postpartum preeclampsia so I am trying to help my body heal. This means I have to give up control regarding laundry, housework, and lifting/tending to Blake.
I am pleased to introduce to you the man of the year. Andrew has been so great and is completely stepping up to the plate. He worries about me feeling better, but I constantly worry he isn't getting enough rest also. He assures me he is just fine and doesn't mind doing any of the housework/kid stuff. I love this man. Here he is, father of two:
Andrew and Blake are always busy doing some manly task. Here they are tuning up their bikes:
Right now, Andrew is in the cul-de-sac while Blake picks snails off of bushes with the boys next door. We just went for a short neighborhood walk so I could get some fresh air. Life is good. Now, if only I could get rid of these headaches.
