My beautiful and amazing sister Trulie told me yesterday that she has a goal to run a 1/2 marathon this year! I'm so proud of her. And I got to thinking that I am SO out of shape, maybe I should finally do something about it. I have never had the desire to run a marathon (or even a half-marathon) but I do want to get back into running and be able to run at least a 5k again. So, I'm excited. I need a double jogging stroller and a new pair of shoes and I'll be set because I have the motivation now!at least todayThanks Tru
Last Saturday we did the Susan G. Komen Race for the Cure as a family. It was at Cal Expo in Sacramento. We had a blast being together with so many other people participating for such a good cause.I learned some amazing things there too. Did you know that 1 in 8 women will be diagnosed with breast cancer?! Ladies, did you also know that by giving yourself a monthly self-breast exam, you can detect a lump the size of about a marble whereas if you wait until your doctor detects it, it could be about as large as a silver dollar?? I had no idea. Pretty incredible.
Well, here are just a few pictures from our 5k walk.
Later that day, we took some pictures of the babies in the "matching" overalls my Aunt Pam sent them. I LOVE a baby in overalls!!
And...we took some of just Ezra. I know what you are thinking, but I am not playing favorites here - Eden was napping and honestly I was afraid the next time Ezzy go to wear this cute lil' outfit it might not fit him (it's 6month size but I could barely snap it!)
It'sfinally my day off...E & E are both sleeping...I should probably shower, but I thought I'd do a little bloggy blog instead.
I had a wonderful 1st Mother's Day! Josh made me breakfast and got me a little digital picture frame for my desk at work - already filled with pictures of our family. It was so thoughtful... and I love that I can look at it and be reminded of why I'm at work every day.My mom surprised me and had the babies' pictures taken at Picture People in the mall one day. She gave me a big framed picture of the babies looking at each other smiling! Makes my heart melt :)
That evening we went to my parents house and got to talk (well, actually Skype) with my little brother Drake who is on a mission in the Philippines. It was so great to see him and how happy he is serving the people and the Lord. He is growing and learning so much. Here are a couple of pictures of little Dwakey (for those of you who know Drake, he really is "little" now - he's lost about 80 lbs).
The babies had their 4 month well-baby check up about a week ago too. They actually went a little late - they are going to be 5 months old in 8 more days! Anyhoo, they are lookin' great. We will probably start them trying rice cereal soon. Crazy how fast time flies. Anyway, here are their stats:
To sum it up, the doctor says she's a short chubby baby with a big head. We love her! She is the sweetest girl. She is all smiles from the moment she wakes up. Her hair has been compared to chick fluff and velcro (it's fuzzy) and she LOVES to stick her tongue out. She is a squeeker - she loves to talk to herself, her brother and mom and dad. Oh, and if you lay her down on her tummy she does an insta-roll. She prefers sleeping on her back or side these days. She is just such a joy!
He is happy and healthy! He is such a cute boy! He's a lot more calm now and doesn't scream anymore that much. He has been talking more and more too. He's good at grabbing toys and has the biggest bluest eyes ever. And Grammy found Ezzy's TICKLE BUTTON. When she tickles him, he just laughs his head off - it is hilarious! (he is super ticklish when she does it, not so much me or josh).
E & E laugh and smile at each other too. It is the cutest. We are so grateful they are growing and are healthy!
