I can not believe it’s been six months since MiniE came into our world. In the same month, E turns 3. They are exactly 2 and a half years apart.Agh!! Life is moving way to fast.
Since my last update, MiniE has gone through so many changes. She is rolling over like a champ, she has even starting laughing and giggling but E is the only one that can make her belly laugh which I think is a result of the little bond they are starting to form. She really watches him and I can tell she looks up to him.
We have made it to the 6 month mark breastfeeding and I’m so happy that we’ve made it this far. It has been tough this time around. We have started Rice and she loves it which is completely different than E.
She still is an amazing sleeper. She actually asks, basically, to go to bed at 7:30 and doesn’t wake up till about 7:30. In fact, both babies are sleeping through the night regularly and I couldn’t be more grateful.
You just never know where she will be in the AM. She moves all over her crib and loves her pillows.
She loves her brother and he loves her. They are so cute when they interact. She loves to be held but doesn’t seem like she’s very close to crawling and I’m ok with that.
I have been getting a consecutive 7 hours of sleep which is something that I really haven’t experienced in about 3 years. I had never realized that I wasn’t dreaming until recently. I have been having some messed up dreams. It feels like my brain has been storing them for 3 years and is just pushing them all through at once.
I said I wanted to make it to the 6 month mark exclusively breastfeeding and we have! But I’m worried that it won’t last much longer. I have a business trip coming up and I do not have enough.
Running has been challenging until recently when I decided to convert to morning workouts. I didn’t think I could do but but turns out I can and I LOVE IT! I have the Rock ‘n’ Roll Half Marathon here in STL in a couple weeks. I don’t know if I’ll be completely ready but I’ll give it a shot.
I’ve also been doing HIIT workouts at home at night with the kids.
Outside of training, I’ve been doing a few more appearances on the local Fox channel. Last week I did one about ways to get motivated. Turns out it coincided with playoff baseball, so I got do my segment with this guy.
Ok, so there you have it. That’s our update. Hope you have a great weekend. We’re taking the day off tomorrow for a family day to celebrate E’s birthday. Pumpkin patch here we come!
What are you doing this weekend?
