Couldn't resisit two posts in one day!

I mean come on, look at this picture!!!!

Tooth #2

Yep, the second tooth on the bottom is now coming in. The kid is going to be chowing real food in no time.

Wow! This weather is amazing. It is so nice to be able to take Dillon out for walks and the occasional run. I hope it stays this way. I have a strange feeling we will pay for this later. I guess the Farmer's Almanac is predicting a big snow storm at the end of March. Would surprise me.

I am so ready for the weekend!

Wow, what a beautiful Friday!! I got out for a short, easy run with Poots after work. He is truly a outside boy. He loves being outside. He almost always falls asleep in the running stroller.

I think it is supposed to be cold tomorrow. Bummer. I am going to try and take Dillon to his first Columbia bike race on Sunday. The race begins and ends at a school, so I can take him indoors if it is too cold.

Work has been killing me. We are getting ready for a big youth event in March. We are getting down to the wire, so things are hectic. You want to guess who is coming to our Youth Rally? You never would in a million years, so I will tell. Miss America!! That is right - the current Miss America is coming for both days. Her platform is building intolerance for drunk driving and underage drinking, so she agreed to come support us!! Very cool!!

On another note, my child LOVES his bath!

Throwing in the Towel

I have given up on running the 1/2 marathon in April. My heart was there, but my body is not. You see, I am being taught lessons all the time by my body. They usually have to do with control. I try to stay in control and tell my body it will do what I want it to. I am learning that is bad, especially with a chronic illness. Krista is still planning to run it and I am so proud of her for her training. You see, this is her first one. It takes a lot to train for something like this-especially when you've never done it before. People are already telling me, "Well at least you tried." Not a good thing to say to me-I don't try things, I do things. (Maybe this is too much insight to my crazy mind!)

I miss running long distances. Running is one of the only times I think of nothing. I have one of those brains that is constantly going. When I run, it is blank. My friend Leslie would tell me to do Yoga. I miss Yoga. She turned me on to it and it helped me physically and mentally. The problem is we changed gyms and Yoga at our new gym costs extra and is at a bad time.

Thought of the day: As soon as I put my child in my car, all other cars are out to get me!!

Back home!!

I am so glad to be home, back to my boys! I did have a neat trip though. On this trip, I realized how big of a nerd I am. We got to go to the Capitol for a tour from Kit Bond's staff. They took us into the tunnels that run under the buildings and we were arms length from Hillary Clinton. She said hi to us. Then we went to the floor gallery and saw almost ALL of the US senators. THAT WAS COOL. John Kerry looks terrible in person. Ted Kennedy is not as big as he looks on TV. On the way to the airport, our cab driver pulled over for the President's motorcade. VERY COOL!!! I know people in DC see it all the time, but it was neat for us to get to see all of this.

In other news, Dillon is getting his first tooth. It is starting to push through. Jason taught him to stand up just by holding your hands to steady himself.

Is it ok to feed your baby chocolate?

Just kidding, this is prunes...yes, prunes. He really liked them a lot. He also likes green beans and every fruit so far. Not too found of carrots and swwet potatoes.

Giving new meaning to Dill Pill

Oh boy has Dillon been a pickle! He will not nap and he has not been eating great. You think those teeth are trying to push through? He is still sleeping well at night, so I guess that is all tht matters.

I have to go to DC for work next week. Jason and Dillon are on their own. I hate to think about leaving for almost a week!

Agreeing with Jason

I too was trying to think of something witty to say in response to other's blogs. I cannot. I had to work Saturday and today I am pooped! Dillon has a stuffy nose. I am trying to train for a 1/2 marathon when I feel like poop all the time. I really don't know how to explain how I feel, besides only a few would care anyway. Hey, guess how I am feeling this Monday morning?!?

Wiped out!!

Blast for the past - ok not that long ago. Was this really Dillon? I already can't remember him being this small!!
This has been a very busy, tiring week. I have only gotten to run once - I do plan to go today. Work has killed me this week. I have to work tomorrow. Working weekend days kill me. I try and relax so much on weekends and now I will only have Sunday.

Man the Rolling Stones are old and crusty!

Dillon is eating baby food. He really like fruits so far. He is ok with the veggies. He is so big. We took him to his 6 month appointment a week ago. He is in the 90% for his height and 80% for his weight. I honestly think the kid would walk if he could balance. Maybe he'll be walking in time for an Easter egg hunt!?!
