9 Months

So she is now almost 10 months but lets just get over that fact.At 9 months here are her stats:

Weight: 17.5lbs

Height: 27in

She is in the 15-25 percentile for both weight and height.

Still a little petite girl but she is getting so big.

She is pulling up and walking along things so well I thought, let's see if she can walk with this little push toy. She just took off and loves walking with it!

She loves her new car seat! In her infant seat she hated being in the reclined position and would always sit with her head lifted. Now with the new seat she can sit up straighter and Grayson and her can see each other while in the car.

Hangin' At The Mall

While my sister was here a few weeks ago we went to the mall.
After some shopping we had some time to kill so we let the kids play.
My kids play so well together and I love it. Although sometimes Grayson forgets that Blakley is still a baby and rough with her. But for the most part they play well.
So Grayson wouldn't go down the slide facing forward.
Would always get up there sit down and turn around and go down on his tummy.
Blakley loved to just watch all the other kids running around and playing.

3 weeks

So it's been three weeks since my surgery and things are getting back to normal. Kevin has gone back to work and my sister has come and gone. Now it's just me and the kids again.
The surgery went better than the Dr. and us thought. The hernia it self was smaller than the Dr. thought, good news. But because I was so big with both pregnancies my abdominal wall was stretched to it's limits and never recovered fully. So instead of being at 100% thickness mine is more like at 35%, not so good news.
The recovery was not so fun. Originally I was going to have to be in the hospital for at most a week, but because it wasn't as bad the Dr. actually sent me home the day of surgery(although looking back I think I would have like to stay in the hospital). The first 4 days I couldn't keep anything in me or even eat at times. Things got better after that, I was still in pain but was able to get up for short periods during the day. The second week was much better I was able to actually be out of bed and pretty much walk around without much difficulty. Week three I'm almost back to normal. If I do a lot of bending over and lifting by the end of the day I'm hurting but over all feeling good.
I'm counting down that days until I start exercising to
try and help with my thin abdominal wall.
