Mileage Monday

Running stats for the week of May 16th - May 22nd... The weather is finally starting to feel like summer and I'm trying to be more intentional in walking Remington and getting my runs in. It definitely isn't easy some days when I feel like I'm being pulled in several different directions. I feel guilty sometimes when I take 30-40 minutes to workout instead of spending those with R-man. He is changing constantly and I hate missing out on anything he does, but at the same time I want to start focusing on what I enjoy doing as well. Roarke is getting old enough now that I feel more comfortable stepping away and letting Dan or someone else take care of him for a few hours.

I have definitely tried to soak up the things I love about my neighborhood and all my running routes since I know I have a limited amount of time to enjoy them for much longer. I especially am hoping that a Momma Goose we have been watching for over a month has her babies soon. Remington, Roarke, Dan and I walk past her almost every day and have seen her eggs sitting under her! We all cannot wait to see those little babies when they hatch!

The Homestead

We've been keeping a secret from you. It seems like we have been in this process for so so long it almost doesn't seem real! I guess it's time to let the cat out of the bag! Come the end of June we will be moving and we are so excited! Welcome to the Homestead!

We will have around 3 acres of mowable property and 7+ will be rented out to farmers. There is a huge pole barn on the property and a very nice horse barn behind the house. As excited as I am about moving, I have mixed emotions about leaving our current house behind. We've had seven years of memories in that house. No matter how much I hate that neighborhood I will miss what we built together in that home. But I'm looking forward to R-man growing up in the country with plenty of room to run and I'm happy to know that Remi's last years and final resting place will be in our forever home.

Week #48


Weight: 17 lbs 8 oz (this boy will just not put on weight!)

We are one month away from Roarke's first birthday! I know I say it constantly, but where did the time go? Even though I loved having a little baby... I am by far enjoying this age right now! Roarke is so fun and interactive! Roarke loves being outside! Everyday that it is nice out we put a blanket down and play outside for hours. We take walks almost everyday too. If I need to stop him from fussing you better believe going outside is the answer! Right now Roarke is all about sharing things with you. When you are sitting on the floor playing with him he will approach you with a toy or book and politely hand it off to you. Speaking of books... Roarke is OBSESSED with all books right now! Seriously, I spend my entire day reading the same book over and over again. He loves looking at the pictures and turning pages! Roarke is also getting more and more curious about Remi. He can be found army crawling after Remington and Remington can be found running away from Roarke! HA! We have been working on teaching Roarke to pet Remington "nicely" instead of pulling his hair! YIKES! Roarke is saying Dada, Mama, and Bye Bye more and more and also likes waving to people! We have been teething hard core lately. I think he has 4 teeth cutting through at the same time. For the past few weeks I have been dealing with a super grouchy kids, which has not been fun! We also bought Roarke his first pair of "real" shoes... he isn't a fan! HEHE!


Goodbye Hair!

Two years of hard work growing it out and in a matter of an hour... POOF... gone! I was pretty emotional after I did it, but I'm embracing the change now!
