headed south

We are going to make a family trip to south Florida this weekend to see my family. Traveling with a 6 week old will be interesting but I think we can handle it. It will be a short trip but I am really excited about seeing everyone and having a great time. The van will be full of baby stuff as well as necessities for all of us as well as my mother-in-law. We are staying 2 nights at the hotel we had our wedding reception at which is right on the beach. I am planning on running everyday while on vacation and I think the weather is going to be perfect. We are breaking up the drive into two days and staying in Orlando at my brothers house on a golf course.

The little angel eyes is doing great and getting bigger everyday. She is a wonderful baby girl who gets excited to see and hear her brother and parents. We have been absolutely blessed in that she has been sleeping through the night for the past couple of nights and was only getting up once (2 to 3ish) since about 2 weeks old. We are all so excited for her to start laughing and smiling at us, especially big brother. Little angel eyes has a bad gas/fussy time every night before bed that I remember her big brother having as well. All is perfectly well though and I am constantly thinking and feeling amazingly blessed.

2 runs in a week

I had a great 4 mile run last night immediately following a small rain shower. The temp was perfect as I wore a long tech tee and shorts. I am getting excited for the coming seasons and the excellent running weather it brings. I kept a nice 9:30 pace and wanted to keep it nice and strong which I did for most of it. The last small hill was rough but I just trudged along knowing I was done shortly. Looking forward to another run this weekend.

time flies when your busy

It has been a little too long since I updated but have busy. I did get another run in sunday for a good 4 mile in the rain. Happy to be back out and no complaints at all. Saturday was an absolute beautiful spring day with warm temps and nothing but clear skies. The big boy started soccer Saturday so we all watched and I tried to coach. I am going to be helping coach the under 6 and under 8 teams some for right now. The kids are so cute when they play. Little angel eyes came to watch and enjoy being outside. None of us ate anything though so we were starved after both games. The rest of the weekend was spent chillin at the house and we were visited by my cousin and her 4 year old daughter. She held little angel eyes and it was the cutest thing ever, she wanted to keep her and take her home to snuggle. They didn't stay long but was a great visit. I didn't get anything done I wanted too and need to spend all day getting them done soon. Come on weekend!

I ran!

I went for a 4 mile run this morning and loved it. So nice to get backout there and knock the cobwebs off. The weather was perfect with a light wind blowing cooler air and temps in the 50's. Looking forward to getting back in the swing of things. Came home and stretched followed by a short walk with the beautiful angel. She is doing awesome and growing so fast. Soccer season is starting for the big boy so should be plenty of opportunities to get outside with the family. Excited to see signs of spring all around now. Keep it coming.

Love and hug your loved ones every chance you get. Live everyday to the fullest.
