Life with Baby Xander

I'm Samantha, I'm 22 years old and the mother of a beautiful little boy named Xander Isaac who I welcomed to the world on June 30, 2012.


This is my blog where I document my journey through motherhood & life.

55 Miles

— 

March 27 passed, significant as it was my birthday, yaaaay, and 4 months post op. 3-6 months are crucial, pardon the pun, as the graft is still susceptible to twists and turns and the rest of the body is looking to push on. The poor London weather has probably been a blessing as month 4 would have been the time to really kick on the KneeHab xp but I have been left looking out the window and concentrating on my balance and strength with the physio activities and my modified legs workout.

Now the weather has changed this week has been 55k on the bike travelling to and back from work, tonight will be rest night, with two upper body sessions at the gym. General muscle soreness all round but nothing niggling in the knee area so I’m really hoping the enforced patience after 3 months post-op have paid off.

We will see.

I can’t wait for Xander to go to bed so I can put together his Easter basket!

He wanted to peel his egg all by himself. 😂🐰 #xander

I know you guys don’t know her, but can everyone send out prayers & happy thoughts to my friend Kim and her family.
Her and her family went to Florida for vacation for two weeks back in March & it was there that they found out her mom had cancer. They all came back after the two weeks, but they’re mom had to stay there for a week or two longer to finish the chemo that she had started.
It breaks my heart to say it, but her mom passed away this morning. Kim is one of the nicest, most kind hearted person that I’ve ever met in my life and she’s constantly getting dealt hands that she doesn’t deserve.
I could never imagine losing my mother, let alone right before a holiday. I just want to go and give her a never ending hug. My heart breaks.
RIP.

I just got off the phone with Justin and I’m 98% sure he said “love ya chief” before we got off the phone. I said “bye chief” out of habit before I even realized what I think he said… And omg?! I can barely hear on the phone though so I’m not sure that’s what he said but it sure as hell sounded like it.
