7 Weeks Old & Busy as Usual

I can work out again!!!! Oh my gosh. It's glorious. It feels SO good to be back at the gym, pushing myself and getting back into shape.

Working out is my outlet. And for the last six weeks, I was told I couldn't have that. I was gnawing at the bit to get out and push my body to exhaustion again, to feel my muscles quiver, feel the sweat dripping off my forehead, and start working on the "squishiness" that has become my belly.

Well folks, I'm back. And I can't get out enough. I've been doing 5:30 am classes since Parker is up for a feeding around 4 or 4:3o and it works out well to feed him, give him to Sam to put back to sleep, run to the class, and come back before Sam is even out of bed to get ready for work. I love it.

My first day back I did a "BodyPump" class. It's a full body weight lifting class that works every major muscle group and needless to say, I could hardly walk the next 3 days. It was glorious.

So now comes the question... shall I commit to a triathlon in August?? I'm thinking about it. More on this later.

Enough about that... on to what we've been up to!!

Parker's 1st Mariner's Game

I've shared how much we love going to Mariner's games and we knew having a newborn wouldn't keep us away for long. Even though the M's suck and the game was over in the 6th inning when we were down 2-6, it was still a great time. No such thing as a bad day in SafeCo Field.

Parker did great. Sam carried him around in the Baby Bjorn and he slept for most of it, and when he wasn't sleeping, he was looking around and taking it all in. I reckon it was no big deal to him since he'd been there so many times in my belly.

Bekah Comes to Visit

My niece was able to come stay with us for a week and we had so much fun. And by so much fun, I mean hours of watching CSI, renting movies, eating popcorn, starbursts, doritos, and oreos, going shopping, getting Jamba Juice, more shopping, more movies, more CSI, and more junk food. Good times.

We spent a day downtown Seattle at the Science Center and hit up Laser Beatles. Yes, Beatles music set to lasers. Can you believe this girl didn't know who the Beatles were?? Well, she had a slight idea who they were, but didn't recognize a single song. Dang, I felt old.

It was so much fun having her around to keep me company for a week and I'm so glad she came. Thank you Bekah!! (And thanks Heidi for sending her :)

Parker LOVED her. He would just sit and coo and look her in the eyes and talk to her and smile and talk and coo some more. Then I told him she was his cousin and boy did he feel silly.

Well, that's about it for now. And just for the cuteness factor, I leave you with a picture of Parker snuggled up to Sam at church. Is anyone ever going to be able to convince me he is not the cutest kid in the whole world? Probably not.


  1. Wow! You are so motivated. I don't think I've ever worked out that hard in my life.

    And I'm so excited to get my turn snuggling with Parker. 12 days and counting. . .

  2. Good. I'm glad you can go and get your endorphins kickin and feel good, but do you have to do it so early in the morning? Sheesh, I'm tired just thinking about it. :) Just kidding, my love! I think it's AWESOME!
    I'm glad you can get out and have fun and your niece could come keep you company.

  3. my defense, I'm pretty sure Bekah SHOULD know who the Beatles are because I distinctly remember blasting Sgt. Pepper with her in the car, very recently in fact... However, I also distinctly remember her putting headphones on and listening to her ipod instead...! Cute pictures of Parker, but I wouldn't expect anything less! Glad you guys had a good time! :)

  4. Ahhh! The pictures are so cute. I am itching for a trip to come and see him but don't have time this week. Boo! I guess I will have to share him in Clarkston. :( hehe

  5. Oh Jodi, you are in for a very big suprise if you think I'm going to share this cute baby boy with you in Clarkston. haha!

  6. Awe!!! I miss him so badly.. And you but I can't for you guys to visit!!!
