I haven’t really done much this week. Robbie and I have walked almost every morning. Sometimes I put him in his stroller and sometimes he’s in his Snugli. I really enjoy being outside and getting some exercise, and Robbie seems to enjoy it as well. He usually sleeps while we walk. I went a full 2 miles the other day, and I imagine my walks will start getting longer and longer as I get back into shape. I’ll probably start adding in some slow running in the next week or so as well. I’m working on getting a jogging stroller so that when Robbie is old enough (most of my running friends say 6 weeks) we can go run together. I really want to start training for a marathon, which I would run next year sometime. As most of you know, I already ran a 1/2 marathon when I was in Korea in 2003.
After we get back from our morning walk, Robbie gets his lunch and then goes down for a nap. He usually sleeps 1 1/2 to 2 hours and this is my time. I’ve been getting a bit of cross stitching done everyday, and that’s really nice. When he wakes up, I feed him again and then we play on the floor for a while. He usually gets some tummy-time and I’ll read the newspaper while keeping an eye on him. I read him some of the articles sometimes. When Ryan gets home from work, he’ll take Robbie for a while and I’ll make dinner. After dinner, we’ll take turns with Robbie until his bedtime which is around 9.
I’m really enjoying being a mother and love watching Robbie’s antics and the cute faces and sounds he makes!
