A morning bath for Skye… one of my favorite things to do. The smell of babies right after a bath is heaven.
Along with this… when they hold your thumb and hold it so tight you can’t go anywhere else.
It was then Brooke’s turn to get ready. I can’t believe how it seems like she was just as small as Skye in the above pictures and now look at her! It feels like I blinked my eyes and boom!
Brooke is really starting a new fashion trend over at her school and we are fully supporting her socks over her pants idea. It makes her happy which makes me happy.
On my latest Skye update I asked you guys for good recommendations of nursing sports bras (thank you for all of your comments)! A bunch of you recommended trying the Senita Speed Feed Nursing Sports Bra and holy cow… it is amazing (and only $32). I have only tried it with walking but it is so comfortable, it has so much support and it is so easy to unclip the front and nurse. I think I want to buy 10 of them and just wear these all day, every day. I can’t thank you enough to those that recommended this bra. The perfect sports bra (especially right now…) makes the biggest difference.
Hot chocolate is a big deal for all of us in this family. We had some for our lunch appetizer yesterday.
While my sweet potato was cooking I opened up Instagram to find a new message from Jess saying that she was channeling her inner HRG and eating the below meal;) I laughed because I saw this exactly as I was making the same meal for myself.
Andrew set out for his run yesterday afternoon and then these three went on a mini walk. Skye and I stayed home because it was raining (but 45 degrees… I seriously don’t know what has happened to Utah)!
I am quite impressed by Skye’s latest talent to be able to go from upset along with a pouty face due to me not holding her…
to asleep within 2 seconds of me picking her up.
This is what our afternoon looked like.
At one point Brooke told me she needed to grab something for the baby… and then out she came with the humidifier because she thinks Skye loves it.
Andrew and I did our date night last night. AKA he picked up Cafe Rio for dinner.
And the most exciting part of the day was watching The Bachelor together. This show is out of control and due to the fact that I have zero drama in my life = I really enjoyed watching their drama.
I have been thinking lately about this quote from How Bad Do You Want It?: Mastering the Psychology of Mind over Muscle (this is probably one of the top three running books that I would 100% recommend reading… it is amazing)! I really think that one of the keys to becoming good at anything in life (relationships, running, work life, parenting, school… anything) is learning how to cope well with the hard parts and bounce back when setbacks pop up. I cannot wait to relearn coping with the discomfort that comes on race day/during those tempo miles/from the workouts at the track/any of the miles that may leave me a bit frustrated! Mental fitness here I come:
Whenever I have taken time off from running in the past (usually because of injury) I like to get ready for my return with random stuff like new playlists, new gear, a new inspirational quote, new goals etc. I’ve made my first post-Skye-running-playlist… These are some of the jams I’ll be listening to starting in nine days (along with podcasts too because I can’t get enough of those)!
Just listening to these songs make me want to R.U.N.
Welcome Back by Mase (I thought this song would be appropriate for coming back to running ha)
End Game by Taylor Swift (the new Taylor Swift album is growing on me:)
Any new running gear that you have found and absolutely love right now?! Please share… I love finding new things!
Any songs that you are loving to run to right now? How often do you make new playlists?
What is your ideal ‘date night’? Out doing something exciting or home cuddled up?
What is the meal that the people that know you well would say you eat/love the most?
