I had my little guy one month ago yesterday, and I've been a little AWOL since....but I'm finally getting my feet back on the ground again....

And guess what? Having more than one kid....it isn't so bad after all!! I'm actually really enjoying this. With my first, I had bad pospartem and didn't really enjoy it all that much. This time, my spirits have been high, and I'm enjoying this so much. I'm actually thinking about the next one; not for another year or two, but I definitely have the baby bug.

I'm finally physically feeling better....it turns out pushing out an 11.2 pound, 23.25 inch baby with a *gasp* 16 inch chest can do some damage to your vaginal region!! Who'da thunk it?!?!?!

Here's some pics of my boys...finally figured out how to post and link.

Yay! So glad you're enjoying it! And that you're feeling better, too. It's amazing how nice it feels to finally "feel human" again after a birth.

Oh, your little guys are so cute! I'm so happy to hear that it is not so bad...today is my first day without DH. Except the fact that I didn't get any sleep last night (again) and that the three older members of our family are sick, it is going okay so far...1 1/2 hours down so far...you have given me hope.

Your boys are so cute! Wow, what a big baby! He looks like a 3 month old. Good job! Mine was 9lbs 10oz and I tore ALL the way. I mean, there was nothing else that could have torn! I have two boys too, wild times! It is very fun, but wow!

Congratulations on being a mommy of two beautiful boys!

How did you fare? I was terrified that first day, and there have been moments where I've wanted to plop down in the middle of the floor and bawl my eyes out...then run mad from the house!!

I hope today went well for you. I'm sorry you guys are sick...my boys are just getting over a nasty cold, too.
