I’m not gonna lie, I’m not sure how much I remember about the past couple weeks, mostly because they basically consisted of one thing: sickness. We knew the babies would probably be sick often since starting daycare, but we didn’t expect the house to become what I like to call the viral plague.
Here is what I do remember.
Babies caught colds first.
Bryan caught something second. He had it for 5 days.
I caught it last and 7 days later its still not totally gone. BUT it finally seems like we are all starting to clear up again.
In my own news, I ran my longest run (before I broke my toe) at 12 miles on an awesome cool day and kept up a pace 20 seconds per mile faster than the 11 miler two weeks previously. I can’t even remember the work outs for the rest of the week because at this point it seems ages ago and at this point I haven’t even exercised in over a week. No more Myrtle Beach Mini Marathon. 😦 Only 5 more weeks of healing to go.
On the baby front, the coolest milestone is Miles rolled from back to front. I missed it happening but realized what had happened when I heard him fussing and realized he was on his stomach. Go buddy! Abby hasn’t done it yet but she’s very close.
Well that was just about the lamest update ever so onto the fun stuff:
- Miles is a bathroom ghost
- Abby enjoys an after breakfast snack
- We take a couple of pre sick selfies
- Abby is already fighting for the mirror
- Babies turn 4 months old. Taking their monthly photo starts becoming more and more interesting. This month I end up with a series of outtakes…..
- Before I end up with the real one
- And yes, believe it or not, he still fit in the shirt.
- Babies visit the doc for 4 month check up and shots.
- Shots are a bit harder on both mom AND babies this time.
- Both babies are declared healthy!
- Miles is a ham
Run stats (pre injury)
- Fastest mile 7:20
- Longest run 12 miles
- Fastest 5k 25:45
- Weeks till I can run again: 5

They are adorable! And growing so fast! Great picture, even the outtakes! Glad everyone is getting better and I hope that you hit 100% soon!

Thank you! You’re right about them growing too. Time is flying.

I hope you feel better soon. Being sick while trying to be a momma has to be the hardest!

I’m really not sure how you do it some days. And, then I remember. Oh yay, I’m about to be a mom too! You are such an encouragement and inspiration. Thanks for keeping us all laughing even though I know that not every moment is easy for you. Get well, STAY well, and hugs!

Emmas 4-month shots were harder on her too. Don’t know why but it took her a couple weeks to get back to normal! I’m hoping the 6-month ones are easier.

I’m glad to have just found you! I’m newly pregnant with twins and wondering about many of the things you are writing about. What kind of jogging stroller are you sporting, by the way?
October 1, 2013 at 12:36 pm
A BOB! It’s the best kind to get!!

I was JUST researching these. How old were they when you could actually start using it?
October 1, 2013 at 5:06 pm
Well I just broke my toe so haven’t used it for running yet. The company says not till 6 months but I feel comfortable at 4 months once they are able to hold their heads up well. Once my toe is better its on!
