Month: January 2016

I mentioned that I’m going dairy free for a month to test if Kara has a milk intolerance. I also mentioned how hard it is- and will be even more so if I have to do it for the duration of my breast feeding, which I would like to be a year. Of all things dairy, I think I’ve missed ice cream/ froyo the most. Especially when I’m up late at night nursing and just want a quick scoop of cold, sweet, creamy goodness! I knew there were non-dairy ice creams out there, but was skeptical of their taste and […]

Happy Monday Folks! This post is being brought to you by an early early morning feeding. This is my current view… While I’m not the biggest fan of being up at 2:15AM, I wouldn’t trade this time with my sweet girl for the world. I know these moments will flash by before I know it and I want to soak them all in… even if it means I’m delusional the next day, haha. I’m linking up with Erin for my weekend snapshot, Katie for MIMM and the weekly wrap! I never posted my Instagram #2015bestnine, so here it is. Obviously most of it was baby […]

Tongue out

Warning: This is a wordy post without pictures, but has fun content! None the less it’s my Friday Favorite… After being cleared to run at my 6 week postpartum appointment, I have since run 6 times. All but one of those runs was on the treadmill. I got a BOB stroller at my shower and I finally got to run with it this week. The weather has been cold (lows in to 40’s with highs only in the 60’s- yes, I’m a true FL girl) and just perfect for running outside. I bundled Kara up and took her out for my first run […]

NYC Marathon

Here’s what’s been going on in the life of HFR in a sentence (or two) per picture, in no particular order… Cleared to run postpartum and my first run was short and sweet. Took is easy on the treadmill with my little nugget by my side <3 Kara’s first trip to the zoo! Clearly she had a blast… My favorite picture from the zoo- mama and baby elephant. Ooops! Sorry pretty girl. New Years Day dinner at my parents: Roasted pork, green beans, sauteed cabbage, black eyed peas, rice and roasted radishes. She couldn’t wait until the evening for bath […]

I can’t believe a month has already gone by. I’ve been a freakin mom for one month. Not to mention, my baby is one month old. It’s been one month of emotional craziness, pure joy, love and patience. Can I say “one month” any more times?! Let’s see how mom and baby are doing… Kara had her one month appointment and she did so well! She got her first shot and only screamed for about 10 seconds. She handled it like a champ! Her weight was really good, too, 8lbs 11oz. At birth, she was 6lbs 9oz and she dropped […]

Kara 1 month

Happy New Years everyone! As with every holiday and big event that passes, I can’t help but think, man, it’s already over. Where did 2015 go?! Seems like just yesterday I was recovering from last NYE! Let’s take a look back at the big events in my life from 2015 for this Friday’s Favorites… 2015 started with Todd having to travel to Israel for work for a few months. I was lucky enough to be able to tag along and got to explore the country. Swimming in the dead sea, tasting the yummy food, running a half marathon in Jerusalem […]

Sweet Kara
