A few tidbits and updates

I am feeling much better. Not 100% but way better than I was. Whew. The hardest part now is that I'm feeling better is not to overdo it, which I feel I did today. It's hard to take it easy when you are so used to opposite and you feel better!

We had the most boring and pathetic First 4th of July over here. I'll blame in on the fact that our dog is pathetically terrified and needs to have someone at home with her, or maybe because I had surgery but either way, I'm sure Brady didn't care!

My mom has stayed with us the past week and it's helped us 1000%. I think Brady thinks it's his new mommy and I am trying to deal with that, ha! He's doing well with sleeping. He usually wakes up once but two nights ago he slept from 715-545! Part miracle, part fluke. I don't care, it's awesome.

My once slow scooting half crawling baby? ha. He is now a full fledged crawler, pulling up and cruising around the living room. His favorite thing to do? Chase the animals! They don't care for it but he just goes right back to find them after they run away! He even climbed onto the hearth of the fireplace last night and looked at me like, ha ha momma! You can't get me!

Brady is a waver now! He waves bye or hi and is SO proud of himself! He seems to catch on to things so fast it truly amazes me how fast he is growing up before my eyes. You can look at him and know that he is truly taking it all in you can practically see those brainwaves making magic!

Brady has a new cousin (well, 2nd cousin) My cousin had a baby the same exact time I was in surgery! He is so teeny tiny and I can't believe my little baby was once so small. I can't wait to meet him!

I had the best cuddle session with my bubba tonight and baby snuggles heal anything! The best place for this takes place on the couch so I don't have to lift him or have him on my stomach, and tonight he curled up and passed out. I layed there with him for a long time just taking it in. Moments like those have to be cherished.

Hope you all had a safe and happy 4th (at least a more exciting one than we did!)

Happy Fourth! I'm glad to hear you're doing better--and baby snuggles certainly sound like they have magic healing powers. ;)

We did nothing on the 4th. Nothing. Like, the only time I left the house was to take Levi to Forest Park. And it was great! Glad to hear you're on the mend and especially happy that your mom has been such a big help.

I'm so glad you are feeling better! And we didn't do much on the 4th either. :)
