Finally Well!

The funky bug that Lucy so kindly shared with me hung onto me longer than it did her (thankfully). It took a full 2 weeks, and I still have some lingering cough and congestion, but I'm finally feeling almost back to normal. I haven't run in over 2 weeks though. Every time I would set foot outside the cold air would send me into coughing fits so I took that as a nice excuse for a long rest. I'm hoping I haven't lost too much fitness because our half is coming up in early March and I'd like to enjoy it and feel good during and after!

Lucy is getting SOOOOO close to crawling. She has perfected the roll over-push up and does it every time I'm trying to change her clothes or diaper. She sleeps in bed with me/us and naps in our bed as well, so I went yesterday and bought bedrails so she can't crawl or roll off. We don't even have a crib, and the plan (haha gotta love how plans go awry) was for her to sleep in her pack n play until she was big enough for a toddler bed. Well she was never a big pack n play fan, and since she still wakes up several times a night, it was much easier to just move her into bed with us. She's too busy to snuggle and cuddle during the day, but she spends her nights nestled right against me. That way she can nurse when she wakes up without either of us really having to get fully woken up. I've heard "oh, you've got to break her of that" and lots of variations on the theme of "you'll never get her out of your bed." Umm..I'm fairly certain that at some point she'll not sleep with us. Unless colleges open parent/child dorms, in which case we're set for life;) I like that precious time with her, especially on days that I work and don't see her much at all during the day. One thing I've learned so far since having her is just how darn fast it goes, so I will cherish every snuggle and night spent with this sweet girl at my side.



Ok, I need some motivating words to get back out there and run....let's hear it! I also want to start doing some yoga since my flexibility is nowhere near what it used to do. Do you know of any good websites that have a quick and fairly easy yoga routine?

Glad you guys are feeling better! I hear you on the sleeping arrangements--Mia didn't really have a crib until she was a year and a half old, and even then she slept with us a lot of the time. I have to say that it was really tough to get her to sleep in her own bed--we still have issues at 6 years old--but like you said, it's not like she'll be in there for the rest of your lives! It's wonderful to wake up to their sweet little faces. Enjoy that time; it's so special and it won't last forever.

Go run!

Sorry, I'm not very good at getting any more specific than that ;)

Glad you are feeling better!

Please tell Miss Lucy that Zane, who has the attention span of a gnat, just watched her video all the way through! When it was over, he said, "Uh oh, Mama. Fizz it! (fix it)" So we replayed it and he watched it AGAIN! Then he tried to touch the screen to replay it (like he does on my phone). Alas, on the third play....Lucy lost out to cartoons.
