Baby Joey Is Here!

Three weeks ago today we welcomed Baby Joey into our family.  He is such a sweet little guy and we are all so in love with him.  Mia is the best big sister ever, in fact she thinks he is her baby and wants to help with everything- except diaper changes.

Like his sister Baby Joey was a C-section baby, this time though it was planned.   Having a planned c-section was a much better experience than laboring for 2 days and then having an emergency c-section.  I felt so much better after and was up walking around a few hours after surgery.  My recovery has continued to go well.  I feel so much less tired this time, even though he is up almost every 2 hours.  

While I am not cleared to run or do any vigorous exercise yet the doctor did tell me last week that I can start taking walks.  Last week I took 2 short walks to see how it felt and I felt great so this week my goal is to try to get in daily walks.  Today I managed 30 minutes on the treadmill for a total of 1.20 miles.  Hopefully these slow walks will help me continue to get back into shape and get me ready to run once the doctor gives me the ok in a few weeks!
