Not sure I’ll be holding Beck at anytime other than when I’m feeding him because Brooke wants to hold him all day now.

I wrote about two Friday favorites before going into labor ha so here they are….

*I bought another color of the CRZ long-sleeve running top that I want to wear every day.   Not only are these perfect to wear for runs but I also love wearing them with a pair of joggers (these and these joggers are my favorites), it really is the most comfortable combo.  They aren’t maternity, they just stretch well too if you need:)

*I bought a new book to read (on my iPad) during any free time that I have to help distract myself from thinking every little thing happening with my body is a sign of labor ha.   “Inside a Marathon: An All-Access Pass to a Top-10 Finish at NYC” is SO good and it is full of so much awesome information.  I usually read about female runners but I am absolutely loving Scott Fauble’s story and hearing from Ben Rosario too.  It is making me so excited to get back to the marathon someday.

Congrats again! Beck is adorable… I love his name – so unique. And you look incredible. The kids will be a great help
What size do you wear in the long sleeve? Looks just like the lulu swiftly techs but a third of the price:)
Have a great weekend snuggling baby Beck

Those pictures made me cry! Oh they are so precious. My daughter wanted to hold her new baby brother all the time too when we brought him home. She however wouldn’t change diapers for me ;)
Congratulations Janae he is SO perfect I love all his dark hair.

Congratulations! So so happy for you and your family. The other kids’ expressions when they’re holding him are priceless. Sending all the love!

I read Chris McDougall’s book Running With Sherman, where he rescued a donkey and trained it to be a burro racer. It was FASCINATING and also a really fun read. I’ve been recommending it to all my runner and non-runner friends!

Welcome to the world, New Kid — we’re happy you’re here.

I hit my 100 day running streak (11/4) and for the last two days, just kept waking up and running (#atomichabits)
Weekend plans are talking to great people about building cool things. Might squeeze in some kid play time with the cousins (still on stay at home in NC).

Looks like an amazing few days! Nathaly and I were on baby watch texting about it once we saw you went to the hospital and our guesses were a boy.

My weekend plans are much less fun than yours. Well a little girls night is fun but otherwise I have a lot of things on my to do list before I move next weekend!

Many, many congratulations to you and your family. What a wonderful gift to this world in the midst of so much brokenness and sorrow. Welcome, Beck. We are so grateful for the joy your arrival has brought all of us.

Aww, snuggle him all weekend! Can’t wait to hear about his little personality.

We have a typical laid back COVID safe weekend… Can’t say I don’t mind the no pressure to do things life!!

I followed your pregnancy journey more than the election and current events, haha! It has been a beautiful, positive distraction from the chaos in the world right now. Congratulations, I am so happy for you guys. Sending lots of love from the east coast, have a wonderful weekend full of snuggling!

Reply

Thank you for sharing these pictures! Just what all of us need right now 😊. Congratulations again. Beck is perfect. And as someone else said, I love seeing all the love in your family!!
We are having a massive drop in temps this weekend!! Wahoo! So lots of baking and cold weather cooking will be happening.
Have a great and cozy, baby filled weekend ❤️

Congratulations!!! He is perfect! I love his fuzzy shoulder. When my daughter was born she was fuzzy like that. She even had long hair on her ears.

Reply

Those pictures are perfect! So cool.

Last running book I read was Natural Born Heroes, which was great since I am also a WW2 history buff.

Usual weekend plans – go for a trail run tomorrow and do a lot of relaxing and football watching while getting some things done around the house.

With the election and covid going on I can honestly say my favorite thing from the week was reading this wonderful news on your blog! Enjoy your weekend!

He is just so adorable big congrats!!! You make me want another baby in a bad way except I’m 44 lol! Enjoy your beautiful family!

I seem to recall in June we were listening and learning and yet… I haven’t heard any follow up about that. Quite a bit about favorite pants and what was eaten today, but not so much about that. I’ve read for a long time and to be honest I am disappointed that there wasn’t follow through. Now it just seems like it was a canned influencer language that lacked follow through and that’s unfortunate because the bar was pretty low in 2020. I’ve been a reader for years and now I feel like I need to stop because you didn’t pull through on this.
And before anyone says politics has nothing to do with this–maternal healthcare during pregnancy, infant healthcare after pregnancy and post partum care for moms, access to education for your children, your ability to easily walk in and vote, going for a run in your neighborhood without worrying about violence–these are all things Black women are fighting for for themselves and things that benefit all of us. To have not followed through publicly on your public commitment to listen, learn, and use your platform to further that is a letdown.

To Lauren: I hope you find a blog you like :)

Congrats, Janae and your beautiful family! Remember, you can’t please everyone ;)

It’s obviously not an accident that you’ve chosen a joyful time to post this. You will be a much happier person if you try to look for good in this world. Think joy and positivity and you’ll find it!

Congratulations Janae and Andrew! Little Beck looks so sweet and look forward to watching him grow up!

Those pictures of Beck and Brooke are absolutely adorable!

Congratulations!! He is absolutely adorable.

Congratulations. Love the name! ❤️

Squeeeeee!!! Baby Beck is so cute. I think he looks like Knox so far. We all know that can change daily, but for now he looks like Knox. My son’s name is Beckham and when he was a baby I called him Baby B. He goes by B, Beck, Beckham now. Of course he is the youngest of 4 so chances are he’s also called his siblings name…….

Congratulations a zillion times over!

Reply

Awwwww, congratulations!!! Beck is perfect, love the name.

The kids meeting him was so sweet =) I bet you wish you could go back and show the 2016 you, your life now. Dreams really do come true.

Enjoy your baby snuggles, you earned them .

Congratulations!! Beck looks just like Knox in these pictures!!

He is so beautiful, Janae! That picture of Brooke holding him on the couch… my heart!! 💕💕

– Congratulations on fresh baby Beck!
– Fun Fauble fact: Although I’ve never met him in person, he used to run for my boys’ high school and with the coaches I worked with the last 4 years in cross country and track. And, for our annual race that raises funds for educational and special programs at the high school, he donated prizes to try to help increase registrations when we had to switch to a virtual format this year.

Brooke looks so in love in these pictures! Blessing on your entire beautiful family! Welcome Baby Beck!
