Remember THIS?

I decided it would be fun to do it again because:

1) It would help me lose the baby weight
2) It'd jump start me back into my favorite (and only) hobby
3) Training would be my "me time"
4) I wanted to beat my previous time

I may have been wrong because:

1) Even with 20 miles/week right now, there are 8 pounds just clinging to my body for dear life!
2) I'm exhausted chasing a 2 year old and tending to a 3 month old as it is! Those extra miles aren't helping the prob
3) My "me time" is at 5:45am and my long runs are followed by a not-so-relaxing bath shared with a 2 year old and 9 plastic dinosaurs. :)
4) I will NOT be beating my previous time. My goal for now is survival.

To be more upbeat, I just read through my blog from the first time I ran it and it got me REALLY excited again.

SO....49 days..16 hours...53 minutes...32 seconds till the start of round 2!

3 months

My baby is 3 months today! It's crazy how fast time is flying and how quickly she is growing up already!

*Reese weighs about 11.8 pounds
*She has outgrown her first round of clothes and now wears 0-3 month.
*She loves to suck on her hands.
*She smiles at everything (Maddux, mommy, daddy, lamps, fans, toys, etc).
*Her favorite toy is her Lamaze Giraffe and she gets a huge open mouth smile when she looks at it's eyes.
*She poops a LOT.
*She wakes up only once a night (4am-give or take 10 mins).
*She will only use ugly green hospital pacifiers and refuses to suck on a "cute" one, even though I try every day!
*She has a very strong neck and looks around and everything.
*She still insists on being bounced to fall asleep. It's a bit of a nightmare! (suggestions???)
*She has a few rolls on her legs. This is so fun because Maddux has NEVER had a roll of baby fat. We call her our chunky monkey! :)
*She is in the top 50 for the Baby Idol contest, you can click HERE to vote for her!!
