Happy 8 Month Birthday Lucy Sue

Glossing over the fact that I haven't posted since...gasp...October!!

My little lovebug is 8 months old today. How can this be?? We had a great first holiday season with her, and she is just such a joy to us. She is sweet and funny so full of life and love and it's impossible not to smile when she grins at you. I really can't believe that she can be this old already. Rich and I were talking about how we still feel like brand new parents with a brand new baby.

She had her first tooth pop in overnight. It's not all the way up yet, but it's poked through the gum. She and I have been sick for the past week. She has RSV, and is on an inhaler to help with her breathing. She's much better though, thankfully! I'm still under the weather but hopefully will start to feel better soon. It's hard to keep her entertained when I'm sick!

On other fronts in our lives:
Running- get's a huge thumbs down and frowny face. We started off marathon training doing really well, but the holidays and various illnesses and ailments have derailed us. We planned on doing the Little Rock marathon in March, but I think we're downgrading to just doing the half. I'm disappointed because I really wanted to the full, and made it as far as 16 miles on long runs but I just wasn't getting my weekly runs in. I was pushing hard to get the long ones in while skipping most of the shorter midweek runs, and I could tell in my body that it was not going well and I decided to stop running long to see if some aches and pains will improve. The weekend warrior route was not cutting it. I am looking forward to running the half, and to tackling some shorter races and bis/tris this summer.

Housing-still living here in Cabot with my parents, still have the house in Charleston with renters. We have started to look more seriously for a house here though, and once we talk to some lenders to see what we're working with we can hopefully move forward.

I leave you with some recent pics of the little one :)
