Hope you had a great weekend. We’re back from time with family and a little more sleep deprived than usual but it was so worth it. I love seeing my sister as a mom and meeting our new nephew. I also got to meet my cousin’s new baby… the babies are multiplying!

Hello from PA!
This was our first overnight trip with the baby and she did great! She stuck to her regular schedule and slept well. My 4yo, however, always has trouble settling down at night when we travel and wakes up extra early and the trend continued. When will she ever grow out of that?! [...]

How is it Friday already? This week flew by for me. We’re heading to visit my family this weekend and finally get to meet my nephew who was born 8 weeks before baby J! I can’t wait to get those two cousins together.
To keep things fun for Friday, here are a few things I’m [...]

How’s your week going? Baby J caught her first cold so she’s been a little sniffly and congested, but it hasn’t dampened her spirits. I knew it wouldn’t be long with a big sister coming home from preschool full of germs every day!
I realized yesterday that I never gave a recap of [...]

Is it helpful? Harmful?
Should it be done before running? After? And what kinds?
A 2012 meta-analysis of over 100 studies concluded that static stretching before exercise reduces strength by 5 percent and [...]

Hey, it’s Sunday again! How’s your weekend going?
Our Saturday was quieter than usual without soccer this week, so we got caught up on household chores and had friends over last night for dinner. It also rained all morning which made for an interesting long run! Today, we have a potluck at L’s school after [...]

Baby J is two months old!
Time is flying by and she is chunking right up. She’s definitely growing faster than her older sister did.
“Talking” to us
So here’s how we’re both doing:
I don’t know Julia’s current weight, but at 7 weeks she was up to 10 [...]

I’m popping in with a few highlights from the last few months. My friend Lindsay hosts “pin it” parties occasionally, and today is one of them. Check out all the links at her site… it’s a great way to find awesome recipes, workouts, health tips, etc.
Here are a few of my favorite [...]

In the past month, both my daughter and husband had to go on antibiotics (for strep throat and poison ivy). I wasn’t thrilled about it. (My poor husband- not only does he have to deal with my running obsession hobby, he gets to hear me stress over his depleted gut flora.)
Antibiotics are sometimes necessary [...]

It was a really fun weekend here! Hope you had a good one, too.
Saturday was packed, but the highlight was the 5k for me and kids dash for L.
I couldn’t have done it without this guy. I mean, look at him… baby on his chest, diaper bag on one arm, camera bag on [...]
