Training Tuesday

Well, since last week, my training has not been stellar. Thursday I was just so tired. Lillie is cutting teeth and she just wanted to be held. Naturally, I complied. I didn't even do a long run this week. I should have done 8 miles on Sunday, but was totally exhausted.

I am feeling better this week. I got up and ran this am because the heat and humidity was supposed to be really bad this week.

So, the plan for the week is 4 miles Thursday am and then 8 on Saturday.

On a different type of training note...I ordered new bondi bands. These bands are great. I wore one through labor and delivery. It never moved. It was great.

Training Tuesday {on Wednesday}

I am in training mode for the Run Like a Girl Half.  It certainly is interesting training while working, having a baby and trying to keep a home and everyone in it happy.

I am trying to do my long runs by myself.  I love running with Lill...but the stroller, her carrier and Lill herself weigh in at about 55 pounds.  That is a TON of weight to be shlepping.  I do the short weekday runs with her.  {she sleeps}

Last week I ran 4 miles on Tuesday and Thursday.  Sunday am I ran 7 miles. 

Yesterday I ran 4 miles.  It was overly hot and humid.  Lots of water.

Thursday is 4 miles and Sunday is 8.

I'll get there...slow but sure..44 days until race day!

Family Reunion 2013

We took Lill on her first road trip. We went to Rock Island, IL to celebrate the annual family reunion. My dad's family has had an annual reunion as far back as I remember. Since my great aunt is the oldest, we now go to her, since she can't travel.

John Deere is headquartered in Moline, IL part of the Quad Cities.  We took Lill there too.

Lillie was such a good traveler.  She slept through Indiana and pretty much through Illinois.  She slept through the John Deere pavilion, too!

Four Months 10 days

So Lillie, I am late getting this posted. You are four months, I can't even believe it. At your doctor appointment yesterday you weighed in at 17pounds .05 ounces and are 26 1/4 inches long. You are such a happy baby, except when you don't nap. You typically sleep from 8pm until 6am. You wake up in smiles. You are definitely a morning girl. You are taking a bottle and eat between 24-32 ounces a day. You love your bottle and squeal like a little piggy when it is gone. We are on our first long road trip and so far baby girl, you are doing great . When we get home you get to start eating fruits and veggies. You love to put on pretty clothes and big bows. When mommy changes your diaper you look up at all your bows and smile real big. It makes my heart melt.

You are {this close} to rolling over. I keep thinking that this will be the day. You have recently started to enjoy books and you like to be read to. You also love your baby doll and wubbanub. You like to hold the wubbanub more than have it in your mouth. You really prefer your thumb.

You are still in a size 3 diaper and will probably be in that for quite awhile.

Mommy and daddy are beginning to make plans for beach vacations for next year. We are hoping to go to Myrtle Beach and then Uncle Nick and Aunt Kara are getting married next August on Cape Cod. I can't wait to watch you running in the sand. So sweet, baby girl.

Mommy and daddy love you very much!
