Labor Day 5K- Pace: 11:33
First post baby real run. I pushed Minnie-Me in her carseat/jogger while Muscle Man pushed the Little studs in the double. I am fully aware that we are well beyond the weight capacity in the jogger, but our boys are not interested in riding bikes, so we are stuck. We stopped 3 times during the run but not because I needed to stop.
9/5 5K- Pace: 10:11
Muscle Man pushed the little ones so I got to run normal. We kept a good pace and I pushed it the last half mile, which felt AMAZING!!
9/6 4 miles- Pace 10:23
My knee was a little sore and it was humid and muggy. I wanted to go beyond the 5K mark so we took the long way :)
9/8 Hilly 5K- Pace 11:33
This was a Sunday so we had all the kiddos which meant 2 strollers. We took the sidewalks in a local neighborhood with a GIANT hill. We walked the hill which impacted our overall pace. My quads were pretty sore after.
9/9- Pace 10:17
It was a crisp morning, we dropped both boys off at school!! Little Stud #2 is in Kindergarten and LS#1 is in second grade. Minnie-Me was sleeping and stayed asleep the whole run, such a good baby!! My knee was a little sore to start but warmed up quickly. The trail is packed with Fisheman. We set out from Orting so we could go to the bakery after, but it is closed on Moondays, BUMMER!

So how is our little lady??
This week is transition week for us. What does that mean? A few things. We transitioned baby to her crib, this will help me to sleep better and help so I dont wake her up when I get ready for work. The first night was ROUGH I was very anxious, but with a few nights now I feel GREAT! She likes her crib and needed the room since she loves to have her arms above her head. I have a night light in her room and play white noise while she sleeps, I think it helps for her to not feel alone. She is on a schedule to sleep for about 4.5 to 5 hours, up to nurse and be changed, back down and up about 2.5 to 3 hours later. This schedule will work well as I would like to nurse before I leave for the day.
Another transition is getting her used to the bottle. I have been pumping to get the reserves stocked but also keeping a few ounces in the fridge for Muscle Man to feed her. I figure this will help since she will be bottle fed during the day. She seems OK with this but it is not her favorite.
Moving the work clothes to transition back to work wear. My pants are a little snug but will work. I may be wearing dresses a lot until things tighten up again.
Well she needs me so I better log off..
Blessing to all!!
