Happy V Day and I finally went running!

Happy Valentine's Day from Lindsay!
This was the first time we tried out her new leggings.  The idea is great so she can wear all those cute onesies she's received but not be freezing.  Plus, they should be great for diaper changes.  BUT, this outfit lasted 10 minutes tops before she had a huge poop-splosion all over her onesie, leggings AND Daddy's pants!  I laughed so hard my incision hurt!

Anywho, I've never cared much for V Day, even when my husband and I were dating, it's just such an annoying holiday.  So, unlike many other men out there, he's totally off the hook :) 

I went out yesterday for my first run in 6+ months and it was a success.  My OB cut off my running pretty early and I was pretty sedentary (per her direction) for the remainder of the pregnancy.  Now, just 3.5 weeks out from delivery (a week overdue, induced for 2 days and ultimate c-section), I headed out the door while baby and daddy napped.

I finally got the chance to try out my new bondi band!  I ran an entire mile without stopping and walked another mile for fun.  It felt so great, I went out and did it again today :)  Made it another mile running and then walking more with my doggy.  Other than sore quads, I feel great!  No pain and the runner's high still exists.  Not sure what the plan is from here on out, but I hope it continues to go this smoothly!!

We're parents!

Pat and I welcomed our first child, Lindsay Kate, into the world on January 19th at a whopping 9 lbs 5.5 oz and 21 3/4 inches long (which is funny since my sister's daughter who is 10 weeks old currently weighs 10 lbs and is 22 inches long!)
She is just so much fun and I LOVE being a mom.  Pat's been off for that past three weeks and it has been amazing welcoming her into our family :)
Here's her obligatory Michigan pic - she's a super fan already :)  and that is a 6 month outfit - and not that big...

do you think she looks like a cabbage patch doll?  I've been getting that a lot (along with she looks just like her dad)
