Snow day!

Well, I've made it a point to go outside of the house every day for awhile now, just to keep both of us from going crazy, but it's not going to happen today.  We got 4-5 inches of snow last night, and more is falling today!  Maybe if things clear up later we'll make it out to Starbucks, but for now, we're going to stay warm and cozy and safe.

Julia's on her second nap of the day.  It's amazing - she's been falling into a morning nap schedule and it feels like every day gets just a little bit more predictable (except Tuesday, when she woke up at 4:30 AM and nursed and catnapped until 9:30).  Now she gets up between 6:30 and 7:00, nurses, plays a little, then is back in her crib for a 30-minute nap around 8:00.  Then we rinse and repeat for another 30-minute nap around 10:00.  It feels so good to be on somewhat of a schedule!

But I don't want to spend too much of this precious nap time rambling on, so without further ado, here are photos:

What is this magical thing?

I like it!

Looks pretty cozy, huh?

My fur-baby is pretty darn cute.

More smiles!


She smiles all the time, but as soon as I hold up the camera, she goes, "Oh what is that?!" and gets all serious focusing on it, so it's tough to snap a smiley photo in time.  But I'll just keep trying.  :)

Oh yes, I almost forgot - call me crazy, but I’ve decided to register to run a half-marathon here in April. I’ve never run in a real, actual race before, but I’m really excited to give it a shot. My goal: simply to finish. I don’t care if I don’t run it all – in fact, I expect that I’ll be walking quite a bit – but I just want to do it. Finding time to train is going to be a little tough, but I think it’s do-able. I’m in better shape than I expected, just from walking the dog, so I need to ramp things up quickly but it’s not unrealistic. I’m going to try to get to the gym for runs twice a week, and do a long run on the weekend, and just keep up with walking on the off days. Once the weather gets a little nicer and I can take the babe out in the stroller, it’ll get a lot easier to get that training in. Wish me luck! I'll try to post progress here to keep me accountable and on track. :)


  1. She is adorable! OMG...I couldn't never run a half or a full marathon! You can do it!

  2. She just gets cuter and cuter! Good luck with the marathon!

  3. Did she do a fashion show this morning on the changing pad with the pink shocks?

    I'm calling you crazy!

  4. Yay! Pictures of Lia, Scrappy and you're running a half marathon with me! Awesome post! More pictures please! Speaking of, we need to schedule our photo shoot soon! Can't wait to see you on Sunday...feel free to bring Lia if you want!
