Spring has sprung and the people are happy

Hi there,

I’m sitting on my stoop and realizing the last time this happened, I had a human growing inside me. That is just nuts. I am so happy Harry is outside now but to be honest I actually kind of enjoyed being pregnant. Is that weird?

My little guy turns 6 months old on Sunday and I just can’t believe it. I feel like he’s been here forever and can’t imagine what life was like without him. He makes me laugh every single day. He’s shown me how to love just a little bit harder. He’s taught me to be patient, not to take life too seriously, and that bananas and oats are a good combination.

He’s about 30 inches tall, no clue what he weighs (his doc appt is April 2nd), he has this fake cough he enjoys doing, and he smiles for days. He’s obsessed with the Baby Shark song and is really good at holding items. He loves going for long walks and is good at napping in his carseat.

How are you half a year old?

Spring came this week and everyone is thrilled. You can just feel the happiness radiating in people. Everyone seems to smile just a little bigger, chat just a little longer and I am all about it. Ruthie has been thrilled with this warmth as she is actually a cat and likes to bask in the sun as long as she can. She won’t walk outside in anything less than 20 degrees. She’s nuts. But I love her so much.

My #1 girl

Ruthie and Harry get along so well and I’m so happy. I can’t wait til they start to play with each other and chase each other around. BFFs for life.

So, what else is new this week? Not a ton. I did make it to the gym 3 times as I’m starting a new squat program and it’s going well I suppose. My current 5 rep max is around 135 pounds and I’m hoping to increase that by 40 pounds in 6 weeks. Lifting and running are about the only things that sounds fun right now. I’m kind of over the 15 minute amrap type workouts at the moment and find myself getting bored about 5 minutes in. Help.

My diet this week pretty much consisted of salads, subs, cookies, chocolate milk, a few vanilla coke zeros, trail mix Cliff Bars, and oatmeal. Man, I eat like a 10 year old boy. I’m trying to get back into good eating habits and am hoping to prep some good stuff this weekend…and lay off the cookies next week. But, that’s unlikely. I just can’t help myself. Especially when they are fresh out of the oven. I literally have an addiction. It’s not good…or is it?

Cool, now I’m hungry.

Is it just me or does this weather make you want to clean your house/organize all the shit that’s collected over the winter? I’m in the mood to throw out stuff, donate stuff, clean all the carpets again, deep clean the bathroom, wash all the sheets…you get it. I’m also in the mood to plan a road trip for the summer, goal plan, and buy some new shorts. It might be a little too early for that though…it’s only 49 degrees out.

Okay, I guess that’s all for now. Cheers to a lovely, adventurous weekend full of margaritas (yes, I can finally have them again), good food, many laughs, and lots of love.
