Day In the Life With a 3 Month Old (Working Mom Edition)

This was my first full week back at work.  Since I’ve returned, every week has included some holiday time, which has been a really nice way to adjust.  However, this was a full week, which was honestly exhausting.  We all survived, and I got in my workouts, but it was definitely a challenge. … Read the rest

Jogging Stroller Set Up

The only reason I have been somewhat able to get back to running consistently is the fact that Lila has been great about hanging out in the jogging stroller.  Over the last couple of months, I feel like we’ve perfected our jogging stroller set-up. … Read the rest

3 Month Postpartum Update

My favorite girl is 3 months old, and I am now 3 months postpartum.  Both of our bodies are changing every day, and it has been a pretty wild ride.  Lila has gone through three developmental leaps, a couple of growth spurts, and is thankfully still a pretty solid sleeper. … Read the rest

8 Month Bump Date

My due date is officially less than one month away.  I know most second pregnancies go 1-3 days beyond the due date, so I certainly don’t have my hopes up that I’ll be done being pregnant by 9/28/21.  However, I am very much looking forward to not being pregnant some time in the near-ish future. … Read the rest

How Runners Prepare for Fall

It was the last week of summer vacation for our little dude!  I would love to say this summer just flew by, but with him basically being home since Spring break of 2020 and the fact that I’m exhaustingly pregnant, well that would be a lie. … Read the rest
