maternity leave 2.0

Today, I took my first walk. Milk dripping, forehead glistening, incision burning… but I walked outside. I’d grown tired of walking the hallway upstairs, as the doctor recommended. I needed some sunshine & son time. I took it really slowly – just a few houses & back, pushing my boy in a stroller. I even took my glasses off, so that I could only see a few feet in front of me. I focused on the warm breeze of spring & the soft murmurs of my boy. Side note: Chris cut one of Ames’ old onesies into a redneck muscle tank, and it looks amazing. The walk only lasted about ten minutes, but it was perfect. I feel renewed even now, just reflecting on it. I love that boy so much.

And now, I leave you with a fun guest post by a fun friend, Anna!
This girl does it all – she’s one of the most gifted & talented people I’ve ever met.
Be sure to check her out over at The Colorful Living Project.

Good day to you!

My name is Anna.
Since I run a design & creative living blog, when Rachael asked me to guest-host Letters to Ames, I didn’t know what to create! But then I started thinking about those cute little twinsies and thought to myself, some things in life are just better with TWO! So I made a little inspiration board of things in twos, in honor of the tiny Kincaid girls! 

Can’t wait to meet those little ladies.

Here’s some more twins!

  1. So proud of you for walking! take it easy though :-) it took me awhile to heal from my c section and I had one baby not two :-)

    Its hard not to get stir crazy though, but the healing will come and so will the mobility, Judah is now 4 months and I was able to run a 5K today with him strapped in our running jogger :-) took time to get this far but slow and steady helped me :-)
