Always a milestone after having a c-section...the first big walk! On July 2, I finally decided it was time to try a short walk around the block (not all over the neighborhood - I was certainly being realistic)! Here I am with the crew before we headed out after dinner!
I think he was pretty comfy in the double jogger! It sure is a good thing - he will be in there quite a bit while I work on getting back into shape!
And this cutie boy doesn't seem to mind it either :) Of course he brings some kind of train or truck with him to sit in the cup holder! Love that he was actually smiling!
And Katie is a walker with Mom and Dad now! She likes to hold Sadie's leash on the walks :) Here she is - spaghetti face and all!
She also likes to hold Brad's hand - or sometimes mine if Brad happens to be pushing the stroller.
And this is generally my view on walks - love it!
An action shot as we rounded the curve and headed back to our house!
We have taken quite a few walks since then...and I've even gotten back into the swing of big walks all over the neighborhood! Last Friday, I walked just pushing Ryan in the stroller - and then Brad got home a little early from work and wanted to walk to get Katie and Jack from preschool...and we did. Whew - that was a lot of exercise in one day (we live in a very hilly neighborhood to say the least). When I got in shape after Jack was born, walking in the neighborhood was the best and easiest way I worked exercise into my day...and I think that is how it'll be again this time! Jack likes to count trees and look for planes and helicopters on our walks now - oh, and groundhogs and bunnies too. :) And he likes to peer around and look at "the Baby" as well - so cute. Now let Operation: Get Back In Shape begins!!
