6 months

I honestly can NOT believe that Zoey is 6 months old! On Tuesday, we celebrated by going to the dr, going to our mum & baby yoga class, and eating cupcakes. (Zoey just watched us eat ours... she didn't get any).


I've been a little absent from the blog world, and it's really just because I don't feel like I have much to say! I am so busy but I don't feel like I do anything exciting enough to talk about.  I run a little, I play with Zoey, I struggle with sleep problems... I don't feel like you all want to read me complain about not sleeping or Zoey peeing through her diapers at night.  If you do, I'd be happy to share, but I know personally, before I had a baby I really didn't care about babies, so I don't expect all of you to care!  Nicole and Rebecca might care, but I don't think the rest of you do!


I can, however, share a few running related newsworthy items today!

First, I got a BOB running stroller!!  My "old" stroller was a Valco Tri-Mode stroller, which is a regular stroller that can be used for light jogging.  We bought it on kijiji before Zoey was born, and the reasons we got that one over the BOB turned out to not really be valid anymore. I liked that I could add a kid to it later, while the bob is a single stroller with no "extra" attachments. It turns out that I don't use the stroller much at all except while running (and you can't run with the Valco when it has the extra kid attachment anyway), as I prefer to wear Zoey in the Ergo.  If and when we have another baby, I can wear the new baby and Zoey can ride in the bob, or Zoey can walk while the new baby rides, or if I want to run, one kid can stay at home!  I also wanted to save space, but it turns put the bob folds down to smaller than the Valco.  Anyway, I took it for a spin today and I love it! So much easier to control, and the sun shade pulls down a lot further than my old stroller, which is great since Zoey is a redhead and needs that protection. I also liked that it's a little narrower, so I don't constantly hit door frames when I come and go from places.  I ran 14.5 km today (FINALLY got a good long run in) and I am super stoked about the upgrade.  (We sold our old on eon kijiji and used that money plus a giftcard to buy the BOB, so we didn't end up spending much in the end, making it a little easier to handle.)

Second, I have decided not to do the NYC marathon.  We just can't afford the whole trip this year.  Boo hoo.  I would like to defer it one more year, but I found out that you have to pay the fee twice, and spending over $700 for a marathon is just not happening.  I will enter the lottery again next year and that's that.

I think that's about all I have for now!  What races are you gearing up for?

Being that your wee one and my wee one are EXACTLY the same age... I like hearing about what she is up to - helps me to sort out just how weirdo my little man is.

Oh yeah, obviously you would care too! Maybe more people than I thought like baby updates. I like that we both put our bumbos on the table.

Haha, I get what you mean when you say that you don't have much to say. Neither do I really and although I try and write something every day to prevent my brain from becoming mush, I find it hard to come up with stuff. But, at the same time, my blog is the only place that I really write Max things down. I just try and limit it. I've found that a few blogs that I read have become baby-focused lately. Sometimes I read, sometimes I don't. I generally skim through anyones "omg, baby is so cute, I love love love him/him" stuff, but love a "wtf is this child doing" story anytime (if that makes sense?).

Gearing up for my 5K Mother's Day race with Max and my 10K for the Ottawa Run weekend. I know I can run those distances easy peasy, but speed....not so much!

I like your baby updates :)

Bumbos on tables / counters are a life saver.... he loves being eye level with me (or close to)

I enjoy your Zoey updates!! We will have to get together for a walk so we can share stories!! Haha!

I also use my blog as a way to record stuff about Audrey- if people aren't interested then they don't have to read!! :) I find I am reading less running/tri blogs since I'm not in that place right now. Funny how things change!!
