Seven Months

Somebody I know and love is seven months old today.  She's getting so so so close to being a real sitter, I can sit her for a few minutes as long as I stay within arms reach and pay really good attention:)
Her favorite toy is the green lantern McDonald's toy that the boys have... seriously... she gets really excited when she sees it!
She continues to be a happy baby... a good sleeper, a good nurser, and about halfway through this month she decided that solid food isn't quite so bad:)
 The best part about Miss Lu is her freely given smiles... anytime you look at her or give her the slightest bit of attention, she lays a ray of sunshine on you... you just have to smile back!
 All in all, I think having her around is a good idea:)

Did I mention that Jared and I are training for a half marathon? It's kind of life obsessing this week as we are getting started on training. Our job for the next two weeks is to run 30 minutes without stopping. That is actually starting to get much easier, I can breathe the whole time and I'm not so sore anymore. Next phase is a series of 3 and 4 mile runs during the week and a gradually escalating long run on Saturdays, going up to 12 miles in the 7th week of training. I'm a little nervous about that, but have confidence that we can do it!

This all started with Annie, my running mentor, I'm so glad she had this idea! I'm still shocked and amazed that I can run three miles with her, she's been running for years. I used to look at people like that, people who could run, and think I'm just not athletic, I'm just not one of those people... well, guess I was wrong. Happily.

Pictures next time, I promise:)

I went to Costco tonight by myself after kickboxing... which was quite wonderful. Anyways, I decided I needed one more pair of jeans, and thinking optimistically, bought a size down from what I was currently wearing. What do you know? Those jeans fit just fine. Thank you Weight Watchers and Master Yi's house of torture!!!!! Ok, I guess I'll keep it all up...
