Yikes! How did it get to be the end of April already!?!?!? This year is already going by way way to fast....in a mere two months we will be celebrating our baby's FIRST birthday! Oh my...I just want to keep him little.
I am hoping I didn't shoot myself in the foot..This past Wednesday I had a fairly large cyst removed from my lower back. I didn't think it would be a big deal as it was done under local anesthesia and usually surgeons are able to make smaller incisions than you think they do. BUT mine is bigger than I thought it would be ...close to two inches long. And it is right at my waistband. As in every.single.pair of pants hit it. Despite being covered with a band aid, it is still getting irritated. So I haven't run since Tuesday night. Which in the grand scheme of things probably wouldn't be so bad..except this past weekend was our longest run for training, 11 miles. AND I skipped the week prior (don't ask, I have no good reason). Not a smart move. I am going to try to run tonight for a few miles, but race day is less than 2 weeks away so no more real long training runs. I keep telling myself that this is an endurance run (all trails vs street running) so I don't need to worry about time, but I am still slightly nervous.
Blake is STILL getting up 1-2 times per night. Ugh. I am not sure what we are doing wrong here! And he is eating more during the day. In fact yesterday I know he had two good meals outside of his bottles because I fed him. He is definitely getting better with that too. Although he is ready for big people food. Last weekend we went to DQ and I gave him Charles' grilled cheese since he wasn't eating it and boy was Blake in heaven! He gnawed on that thing forever and even got a few bits with no signs of choking. I then gave him a bite of garlic bread during the week and he loved that too. I have tried some of the third stage food jars and he liked the spaghetti that had chunks, but another one he didn't I think it depends on the size of the chunks. He also likes munching on puffs and the Gerber crunchy sticks. I am trying frozen vegetables steamed really soft and he isn't a big fan just yet.
Charles is doing great!! He has taken ownership of my iPad. And will yell that it is "Charles' turn!" if I go anywhere near him (he thinks I am going to take it...rightfully so!). And when I say it's Mommy's i Pad he says No, it's Charles' iPad. Stinker. He does have his own games, but I tend to find him in mine or W's and with things messed with. Like random requests sent to random people for Drawsomething. Hmph. He also has this thing where he (with W's help of course) has 'ranked' each family member. W is #1, he is #2 (because he was 2years old at the time this started), I am #3 and Blake is #4. And he .does.not.waiver. Ever. I keep trying to convince him that I am #1 to no avail. He will slip up every know and then but in the next sentence he corrects saying Daddy is #1. And he laughs at me when I try to tell him that I am #1.. It's cute.
W is going to Vegas in two weeks for a bachelor party..I will be home with the kids by myself for 3 whole days! Should be interesting..I haven't been alone with them for more than a day. Of course I can handle it...but it will be interesting.
