So, I did it the following day and NAILED IT!
|Getting dressed up for a run. Her snowsuit is just a little big! She's become a really smiley baby lately. It's so fun!|
Seems like this is a common theme for Mondays? Hmm.
|Nate taking the chariot on skis for the first time!|
We were so lucky to find a used pair of skis from someone I sat next to at the Birkie Marathon awards ceremony. I was pregnant so she asked if I was planning to run/ski with the baby because she had a used ski attachment their family had just outgrown. OF COURSE!
That attachment is $285+ tax new. That's just crazy. There really aren't many used out there - I had been looking.
YAY for random connections and a very generous running/skiing community!!!!!
After thinking about it, I think it was the fact I had taken my first med dose right before the run because later that night after my second dose I felt nauseous again.
The highlight was enjoying Greta's first Christmas with family! She was very popular. We played a lot of "pass the baby" and relatives played "let's give her a TON of presents" :). Good times were had by all!
|Greta's first gift to me. Hope my uncle doesn't mind me sharing here - I think it's hilarious.|
First, the envelope is addressed "To Mom From Greta". I was confused. Guess I'm not used to being called mom yet!
I opened it to find a typed letter and gas gift card from "her".
It reads: Dear Mom,
Please take this and use it if I'm ever with you when we buy gas. I'm so afraid that you're a forgetful person and that the police will come see us again. And if they take you away I'm going to be ashamed, mad, sad, and let's not forget... HUNGRY!
If you're willing, Dad and I can try to seek professional help for you, or even take your license away... I'm WAY too important for you to be ripping people off, plus Dad does make a pretty good living.
Please use this card for ME mom :)
I haven't laughed that hard in a LONG time!! HAHAHAHA! If you're in the dark about why this is funny, read her baby shower post here.
|A gem from our last visit to my parents ("the farm"). I'm walking with my dad, brother, and Nate. They hunt, I tag along for the conversation. They found my ability to jump rock to rock to cross a stream very humorous. I am terrible. TERRIBLE. Nate had to come back to help me, held my hand and told me which rocks to step on next. HA.|
Best and worst gifts you gave/received?
