Update

What a crazy month we have had! Between Hallie's surgery, a new baby and now my surgery, we have been a little out of it! Hallie has recovered completely (except for a slight change in her voice that I am still praying goes away!) and Lainey is doing well. I am feeling much better and getting closer to "normal" everyday! I ended up getting my gallbladder taken out and having a "severe umbilical hernia" repaired. I must admit, I was down and out for a couple of days, but I am feeling better everyday. The recovery was harder than I expected, thanks to the hernia, but I am so glad that I had it done. After I had Lainey, I knew that something was wrong because I just wasn't getting back to normal like I expected. I had way too much pain for everything to be ok. So I am glad that we had it checked out and had it fixed before Aaron went back to school and while his mom and dad could be here to take care of us. My mom was here for Lainey's birth and all of the time that I felt so crummy afterwards and Aaron's mom and dad were her just after the surgery, so we have been in good hands. Anyway, I wanted to post some recent pictures of Lainey. She is already changing so much!

She is just precious Katie! Another job well-done. :) Sorry to hear about your surgery. I can imagine that throws a whole different twist on recovering from having a baby. Glad to hear that you are on the mend and that you and baby are doing well. Thanks for the pics. You look great!

She is absolutely delicious Katie! Congratulations!! I knew you were having surgery but I didn't know about Hallie. I'm glad that things are getting back to normal for all of you. Give Lainey, Hallie & Maggie a big kiss from the Fugals. :-)

Very much love the photos. what a beautiful bunch, every one of you! Aaron, it's wonderful to see that you've been blessed with such a great family and that you're building up around a whole host of family - more than the sands of the sea or the stars in the heavens, eventually, Aaron! Wonderful.

Those are such precious pictures! What is with surgery and Iowa?? Is is mandatory that you can't leave before having something cut or removed?? Honestly. I hope you are feeling good, and Lainey is so adorable.
