Things I've learned post-partum

~and some pictures taken by my photog. neighbor and friend. (more to come!)


* Week two post-baby/surgery is infinitely better than week one.
* I would have DIED without my mother-in-law here taking care of us.
* I (((heart))) Boppy pillows.
* Having my kids and DH around me is literally healing to my body and soul.
* My faith in Priesthood blessings is increased every time I have one.
* Dehydration is evil, EVIL I tell you! Water is my friend.
* It feels soooo good to start keeping my own house again. The break was nice, but so is getting back into the swing of things.
* Small children think babies can't hear or see them unless they are within an inch or two of the baby's face.
* Babies look smaller when their Daddy's hold them.

* Time flies. Each day in the life of a newborn brings so many changes.

What beautiful photos! I'm glad you're feeling better day by day!

p.s. I'm not sure if Jed left a message for Paul like I told him to or not (for some reason I don't have your # in my cell contacts) but that winnie the pooh gift bag left at your house last Sunday was from us. I figured being over there TWO times and forgetting to take it meant we were leaving it whether you were home or not! Oh and um Jed forgot the card. lol
