2 Years Ago

2 Years ago today we welcomed a new member to our family. My pregnancy with Little Stud #2 was not too rough, but it wasn't easy either. He moved CONSTANTLY and I had debilitating pregnancy induced carpal tunnel. STARVING!! So I ate and ate.. And ended up gaining 65++ pounds..
Baby shower with my college buddy Katie. Yes folks 265lbs :)
But all for this precious little man!! I thank him because after an easy delivery I had energy and was ready to TACKLE the post baby weight. Having two boys is a blessing, and I cannot imagine life without our Little Stud #2. HAPPY HAPPY 2nd Birthday Little man!! Please do not become terrible at two because Mommy would miss you..
  • ***I will not be running today, I am going to shift up my schedule because Volleyball last night was BRUTAL!! We played the first match (3 games) with 4 players because two of our teammate coach club volleyball. Covering the floor with 4 players instead of 6 is TIRING!! I felt like I ran for 2 hours. Two opponents were wearing race t-shirts, Capital City Marathon and Seattle Rock N Roll Half Marathon. I wanted to talk to them about running, but I barely had energy to drink my water during breaks :)

  • ****I will not be running today because I spent the ENTIRE weekend on my feet cleaning our house to get it ready to sell!! Sorry I was absent from Blog land commenting, I was deep cleaning every inch of our house. We have high hopes that the house will sell and we will find a new place. The one cute thing while cleaning was Little Stud #1 is VERY good with positive encouragement, "Mommy you are doing a good job. Am I doing a good job Mommy?" "Yes buddy thank you!" Smile "We are doing a good job cleaning." So funny!!

Happy Birthday Little Stud #2!

Good luck with selling the house! We moved into this house last February and I just remember how tiring the whole process of buying/selling was. Wait, maybe it was because I had a 2 week old when we moved. Stay positive! I'm sending you house selling vibes ...

Aww happy birthday stud #2! Way to go on tackling that baby weight. I honestly don't know how you runner mom's do it all.

Good luck selling the house, it's such a hard time right now. We're on the other looking for a house but with Mr. Pi unemployed we are just LOOKING.

Definitely take the day to rest, sounds like you had a crazy weekend.

Mine was great, I got to ride OUTSIDE on Saturday but my Sunday run was miserable since it was pouring and cold.

Gooooorgeous baby picture! I gained 50 lbs with my third so I feel ya! Maybe it's because we're tall, we're "supposed" to gain more? Suuure, let's go with that! You look amazing now though and should be very proud of your accomplishments! (I know you are ;)

My little 2 yr old man's birthday is today too! How ironic! Happy birthday to yours :)I love your comment about him asking if he was doing a good job, I was doing some warm ups and my little guy said "good job mommy!" I love and hate many things about this age, but I treasure moments like that.
