I’m stealing a precious few minutes today while my baby is napping and my toddler is still at school to blog.
Not much to report lately. My half marathon is next weekend and I have no real goals other than to FINISH with a smile and be grateful that at just over six months post-baby, I am able to train and complete a half marathon. I ran this race at 12 weeks pregnant but was in shape so I’m not even sure I will beat my pregnant time.
Youngest started rice cereal last night and she slept all night again! We were having a few nights where she was waking up twice a night for feedings. She was hungry so I know it was not a habit but mama really needs her rest. My alarm went off at 5:25 am and she was up just a little before six so I was able to squeeze in three miles before she woke up. Since I have a hard time fitting in time during the day to run (I’m worthless when it comes to running after lunch time, I just don’t have the energy!), I am going to have to get up early to finish my runs before her 6ish feeding. Which I don’t mind if I have a full night’s rest (seven consecutive hours of sleep is enough for me!).
So…just getting back into the routine again. Oldest started back at school yesterday and I am feeling so much more organized. It is amazing how having just 9 hours a week with just ONE child makes such a difference. I actually have time to get things done and hear myself think when youngest is napping. I’m not sure what I will do with myself once they are both is school full-time. Perhaps I will finally have time to clean out my closets and work on all those nagging projects that I never get around to doing.
Alright, here are the latest adventures in our house. Food for youngest. She loved it and ate two whole tablespoons on her first feeding!. Happy baby:)
