Where Has the Time Gone?!
Wellllll Helllooooo There! Yes, yes I know… It has been forever since I posted. It honestly doesn’t feel like a month has passed, but it has. My apologizes. Life took over one again and blogging got put on the back burner. Get ready for picture overload. Here are some happenings to catch you up…
Running has resumed and I am in my happy place! I’ve been running anywhere from 4-8 miles and plan on increasing my long run by one mile each week to ramp up for marathon training. Thaaaaaat’s right. I said marathon training. Not sure which one yet, but something around early fall would be nice.
Body Pump has been happening regularly. Gotta keep those upper body muscles strong!
Kara’s first trip to the pool! I swear she had fun…
Of course there have been a lot of good eats!
Kara had her first taste of baby oatmeal cereal Mother’s Day Weekend. She LOVED it and couldn’t wait for each bite! Her pediatrician suggested “solids” at 4 months, but we waited until she was 5 months since she was born almost a month early. I look forward to dinner time even more now 🙂
I got in a nice 9 miler Mother’s Day morning. When I got home (I ran around the neighborhood) Todd and Kara were waiting outside for me and Kara was out of her nighttime jammies and in a “Happy First Mother’s Day” onsie. Bonus points to Todd for getting that 🙂 I promise I don’t always awkwardly hold her- I was just really sweaty!
We went to my parent’s for Mother’s Day- shocker, I know. Kara was the center piece during lunch. Who needs flowers when you have a cute baby?! Kristin made carrot cake for dessert and it was the bomb! You know I’m outta my blogging game when I forget to take a picture of my piece of cake… below is a left over piece (that I ate half of for breakfast this morning, ha!).
In other news… I survived a week as a single parent. Todd had to go to Washington state for work during the worst possible week ever work wise for me. We had a huge project that week and I needed to work longer hours, had more stress and on top of it, Kara decided to stop sleeping through the night. We made it through, thanks to my parents. I seriously don’t know what I would do without them!
I REALLY am going to try and post more. I know I said that last time, but work should be slowing down, as are most of the new house projects, so I should have more time. I STILL need to do Kara’s 4 & 5 month updates, too. Oye Vey!
