Time with Chase has been just wonderful! I would write a longer post about everything, but I need that time with Chase. Here is a quick post about the past couple of weeks.

Week 5 and 6 Milestones:
She is sleeping in larger chunks at night of 3-4 hours and gets up twice an evening for a diaper change and feeding. Her naps are more stretched out from originally 30-45 minutes and then wanting up to feed to 2 hours. When she is up, she is more interactive and for longer periods of time. We play on her play mat, do tummy time, sing, tell stories, and show her new toys or textures. She is rolling from her back to her side, which is exciting. During her tummy time she really gets her legs moving like she is ready to walk. It’s going to be crazy to see her take off crawling and then walking! It’s also fun to see her genuine smiles for us or for something funny going on than just for gas. She cracks up often and loves us entertaining her.
Week 5 and 6 Workouts:
I’m still getting in workouts when they fit based on that particular day. I haven’t time for workout DVDs lately, but I have been able to pick up my free weights and get in some reps when Chase is napping.

I will have some races coming up in August. I know that I will be running slower paced than I have in years and I will completely die, but it’s going to feel so good to get out there and be back at it again. 🙂
