I left the house and dropped off Brooke to school (I forget there is a whole world outside of my house at the moment ha)!
I love seeing the way Brooke looks at her new sister.
Doesn’t everyone get back in bed and watch The Holiday at 9 in the morning and stay there for hours just like this:
She loves sucking those fingers!
Andrew went out for a 5 mile run with Beretta!
And then went to pick up Brookie!
I am so happy that sweet potatoes (turkey and more veggies) are back in my life again… bbq sauce of course added after the picture.
Later I took Brooke on a 15 minute walk (we were really into shadow pictures yesterday)…
Win-win—> a little special time for her (this is all a big change for her) and sunshine/fresh air for me.
Candice brought the popcorn I’ve been dying to try and it is even better than I expected!
And Megan brought over my favorite candy that I’ve been missing!
Why sleep at night when you can just sleep all day long?
The nicest people from church brought us dinner!
The Grinch for the 434th time this month already.
This made me laugh pretty hard!
Did you see who will be running Boston in April… Everyone wanna meet up there and we can watch together, this is going to be amazing!
See you tomorrow!
What’s your sentence for the day?!?!
Favorite place to get delivery pizza!
-Papa John’s 100%
Who will be at Boston 2018?
Last movie you watched?
She is so beautiful, Janae! Congrats again!! Such a lovely family!!
I will not be running Boston 2018 … But hopefully I get in for 2019 with my qualifying time!! It’ll be 8 days before my 30th birthday and what better way to ring in a new decade of life than by running Boston?!
Last movie I watched – Some cheesy holiday movie on the Hallmark Channel. Confession – I can’t get enough of them hah!
I just saw that popcorn flavor for the first time yesterday at Starbucks. I wondered if it was good or not. I felt like it could go either way haha. Good to know you like it, maybe I’ll grab a bag next time I grab a coffee!
My sentence is: I squatted 160lbs x 2 which is a new personal best for me! :)
Haha love The Grinch, and I love how precious and loving your family is! I watched that with my niece on Friday night and then watched Pitch Perfect when it was on TV on Saturday night. I can’t wait for Last Call, Pitches to come out later this month!!
Sentence for the day: When something goes wrong in your life, just yell “PLOT TWIST!” and move on.
I’ve been sick for like a month (just can’t shake off the last little bit of whatever this is) so today I’m getting back to running and I’m also going to yoga. (we have a teacher that comes to my work for a midday class)
Papa John’s is totally the best.
Same answer as the one above: I kind of sort of watched/paid attention to whatever was on Hallmark last night. Haha I was also Christmas shopping online. I’m determined not to step into one store this year.
Have a great day! Xoxo
Okay just FYIing APPARENTLY “Christmas Prince” on Netflix is good???Kind of disturbing tweet, but tweet nonetheless: https://twitter.com/netflix/status/940051734650503168
53 people have watched it everyday for the past 18 days, so…must be good??
Left a comment on the “They met.” post. So happy you’re well, the baby is healthy, and your kids have been so accepting of their new Skye– their new future together :D! Glad to see you’re healthy!
First of all…You LOOK great Janae! You do not look like a sleep deprived new Mama caring for a newborn!
I just watched half of a Hallmark Christmas movie last night…..I can’t get enough of them.
Papa Johns 100% too:)
Can’t get over how sweet little skye Is! She’s so loved! Good for you for getting some outdoor time too. I have missed seeing sweet potatoes on your blog and it made me happy to see them!
Oh my goodness, Skye is just ADORABLE! Gives me a little bit of baby fever :)
Sentence for the day – just power through it! This applies to work (because I am so looking forward to my vacation coming up) and my workouts (because TRX made my arms feel like jello last night and I know Pound will be tough tonight!).
I hope everything is going smoothly with the new baby – change is hard but you guys have such a cute, wonderful little family!
Chelsea @ Just Me Chelsea B
You look amazing Janae!!! I think the stork just dropped that sweet girl on your front porch because post pregnancy looks amazing on you! ;) Skye is just beautiful too!!
Brooke looks like the sweetest big sister ever! She’s going to be the best!
I’m SO excited you tried that popcorn!!! I can’t NOT eat the entire bag in one sitting! It’s just way too addicting! PS that dinner from your church looks pretty awesome!!
I SERIOUSLY can’t wait for Boston!!! It’s going to be the best race ever!!!! The lineup just keeps getting better and better with all their announcements! Ahhhh!!
Have a wonderful Tuesday!!!
Congratulations!! So happy for you and your family. You look seriously amazing! Skye looks just like Andrew already
I need to get that popcorn stat! A 15 minute walk is awesome and I love that you included Brooke on it for a little one on one time with her! Skye is such a cute baby.

Now I must have pizza! I like Papa John’s pizza, but since we moved to NY a few years ago, we are surrounded by amazing pizza places. We get delivery from a local place. Lately we have been into making homemade pizza. It’s so good, but pretty time consuming especially when everyone likes different toppings and I end up making 4 personal pizzas!
My sentence today is : I should have stayed in bed!
It’s cold and rainy- the perfect sleeping weather or couch time weather, but you know….life. :)
Aimee from Run Eat Drink Podcast @runeatdrinkpod
Pizza Hut thin crust supreme for delivery in our house! I am so excited to see all of them run Boston! I am currently rewatching the Boston documentary that was released on iTunes last week in bits on my lunch breaks at work. So inspiring!
Hey, I just realized that you never gave us any stats on the birth!! What day did Skye end up being born? Weight, length? Time? I know you’ll probably put all this in your labor story later this week :-)
I love seeing those precious newborn pictures! Also I absolutely love that you took Brooke to school and got out for some time with just her – you’re an amazing mom!
My husband is running Boston in 2018. I am super excited to get to see all those pros. We are big Desi fans! We watched The Holiday over the weekend too. Even my now 3 year old (today is her birthday!) sat through it. Maybe not the best movie for her but a small part of me is hoping she will love a good Rom-Com and watch them with me as she gets older. Enjoy all those baby snuggles! And I need to find that hot cocoa popcorn ASAP!
12 Dates of Christmas. I don’t have the Hallmark channel because we don’t have cable, but Netflix has a bunch of these Christmas movies! I don’t usually watch movies but I also have a newborn so we hold down the couch a lot! I just saw the Bridget Jones movies for the first time too!
My sentence for the day is “relax while you can”. I’m thinking that should be on a tee shirt for all professors in between terms.
That picture of Brooke gazing at her sister is so precious! Sweet sisters!
Last movie I watched was Home Alone. A Christmas classic in our house!
I hope you have a wonderful day!
Congrats! She’s beautiful.
My sentence: Last week of maternity leave means soaking in all the baby snuggles I can!
I love Papa Murphy’s. I know it’s Take & Bake…but it’s still my fave.
I absolutely LOVE The Holiday. It’s just one of those ones (also Leap Year) that I will just turn on Netflix and watch when I’m on the treadmill. :)
I think the last movie I watched was Thor. The baby of my family is finally 13, so we’re slowly ticking off all the movies he’s been dying to watch with us. We’re currently living in the Marvel Universe. :)
Your family looks so happy. Congratulations Janae! SO happy for you!
Love all the pictures of Skye! She is the sweetest little thing ever :) How is Brooke handling being a big sister?!
I need to try that kettle corn ASAP.
My sentence is “less than two weeks!” because I am SLOGGING through my lst few weeks of teaching before vacation.
I’m running boston for a charity team this year! Super excited, though there’s already snow/ice here so training is going to have to be creative!
I also watched The Holiday last weekend! It’s one of my favorites:)
Your new girlie is so cute and you are SO AMAZING to be up and blogging already!! Enjoy it; she’ll be running around before you know it:)
Skye is beautiful :) Hope you are enjoying this time with your family:). It is so sweet the way Brooke is looking at her little sister!
Last movie -Love Actually – a VIP showing with a girl friend last night. The movie never gets old..
No Boston 2018 for me – need to run another road marathon if I want to get back there.
No sentence for the day – but my word: Resilience.
Favourite take out pizza – a local place called Uncle Fatih’s
My goodness girl, you’re going on walks already?! 3-4 days postpartum I could barely walk around the house! I’m glad you’re doing so well :)
Sentence for the day: More coffee please. The baby slept fine last night (at least as well as a 1 month old sleeps) but I had trouble falling back asleep after feedings
Love the pictures so much; so much sweetness to take in! Not really a sentence but I have a story for you. I’m always relaying conversations I have with the kids while my husband is at work. It’s usually not funny until I tell him and then we die/cry laughing. Yesterday I had a foot in mouth situation where my kids asked if the Santa they meet around town is real. I was driving them to school and a bit distracted. Plus, in my defense, we didn’t grow up with Santa in our household so all this is new to my husband and I. I told them he wasn’t and no one really sees the real Santa. My daughter then asked, “If no one sees him, how can we really believe he’s real?” Oh crap, I think. Then I said, “Well, have you seen God or Jesus?” BOOM! :) hahaha. And yes, Papa John’s all the way for me. I love pizza…I could eat it every week. I hope you’re doing well, Janae!
Two words for the day ~ Christmas.Baking.
Our local Domino’s is surprisingly really good. I love using their online ordering so I can see all the toppings.
It’s fabulous that you are out walking already! As much as I love running pictures, baby pictures > running pictures.
Fiona @ Get Fit Fiona
I think I have to agree with you on the Pizza. Papa John’s is my favorite too. Unforunately the location closest to me isn’t the greatest in getting delivery orders right, so I only get it from there if I’m willing to go there to pick it up. There’s nothing worse than waiting for the pizza to get delivered and then opening it up and finding someone else’s order.
I started watching Love Actually but I just couldn’t get into it. We’ll see if I watch the rest of it or not.
Michele at Everyday Snapshot
She is soooo sweet and precious. Aww, just LOVE baby photo’s. I could so smooch her right through this screen. Sweet baby.
Last movie was Elf. We should work in another 987 times yet this year.
You’re seriously amazing I don’t think I left my house for weeks after I gave birth (that I remember ;) glad someone brought you food I remember that was a life saver for me when I had mine.
Skye is seriously so so so cute oh my! Brooke is so blessed to have a sissy and a brother!!
Been following the blog over 5 years wish I lived closer to bring you food! Lol
Jenny | Running On Life
I love babies in jammies! You’re looking fabulous after having a baby!
Congrats to you and your fam. She is beautiful.
Aw, I just can’t get over how sweet her little face is. And so nice that you got out for a little walk date with Brooke. That sunshine must have felt so good. Enjoy those snuggles!
What’s your sentence for the day?!?!
Favorite place to get delivery pizza!
ugh we have a gripe with Papa John’s – they continually park in our driveway and they are unapologetic about it. major dislike!
we don’t get pizza delivery, we walk over one block to get our favorite local pizza from a place called pizzatown in park slope brooklyn. if we don’t get it there, we go to artichoke pizza (a NYC chain) which is a deep dish style pizza.
but again, i won’t say no to pizza. there is so much pizza to be had here. we even have social pizza outings to well known pizza places at work. the pizza is amazing here.
Who will be at Boston 2018?
i won’t – i haven’t yet gotten the courage or commitment to training to run a full marathon. but i will be running the United NYC Half that i got into via lottery! really psyched for that.
Last movie you watched?
charlotte’s web with the little one! thor ragnorok with the husband.
how is it post-birth and first week with baby?? the photos are great, following now on instagram.
how precious is that little face!? love that newborn squishy look.
Found a few rare moments of downtime as I am waiting for someone at work. It popped in my head… wonder if HRG had her baby! Yay!! So thrilled to check your blog today and see a beautiful new little being has joined the earth! What a blessing that she has such amazing parents to guide her through this life. Isn’t it crazy that all these strangers all over the world are rooting for you?!? Blessings to you all and welcome to the world, Baby Skye!
Janae you look ABSOLUTELY STUNNING and Skye is so gorgeous. I am a long time reader and just could not be happier to the core of my heart for your entire family.
Enjoy every special moment with your family this holiday season and beyond of course.
Brick Oven is the best (Hawaiian with almonds) but it’s a splurge. Can’t remember the last movie I watched but I need to watch The Holiday now!
I think Skye is going to be another tall girl, I mean look at those long fingers!!! She’s so beautiful and so is your entire family.
Look out for too many veggies when the baby is super young, if you are still breast feeding! I learned the hard way and felt awful when my newborns tummy was off!! Congrats <3
Skye is adorable……She looks like she fits in with your family perfectly!!! ;-) What a wonderful time of year to bring home a bundle of jo(y). ;-)
Molly Huddle went to my high school! The whole town gets excited when she does big running things! Congratulations on baby Skye, hopefully I won’t be much further behind you! (37.2 right now!)
