Opening Day of the baseball season is approaching and Mark could not be more excited! A crisp spring day, a Rockie Dog, and a good game is all he needs. Now he has a son to enjoy it with! It will be fun to see them share in this love over the years! Go Rockies! And of course we'll be cheering for my Cubbies too!
We are nearing the end of our wonderful Spring Break with my parents! We've had great weather, good food, lots of laughs, and fun times with Nolan. Not only has he been spoiled, but we have too! It has been so nice to come home from work to a clean house, errands run, laundry folded, and dinner cooking. Thanks Mom and Dad! We will continue to encourage them to move out here...how could they live without seeing this precious face every day?!
My week back at work has been a whirlwind! I came back to report cards and parent-teacher conferences. But the life of a year round teacher is pretty awesome! I teach for only 4 more weeks and then I'll have 3 weeks off again! I am anxiously awaiting this time with Nolan. He has been doing great at Oma and Vickie's houses. I couldn't ask for a better baby. He is sleeping through the night and I now have to wake him up in the morning to feed him before I go to work. But I miss him during the day and am counting down the days until my next break! Next week we will have some special visitors...my parents! They will be watching Nolan during the days and we'll have some quality hang out time at night! We are so excited for their visit, as well as the Easter Bunny! Happy Easter!
Nolan and I have been trying to make the most of our last few days at home together. I go back to school on Monday. My 3 month maternity leave has flown by and every single second of it has been wonderful! We have loved sleeping in late, cuddling on the couch, talking to each other in babbles, visiting with Daddy at lunch, and learning so many new things. Here's a picture from lunch this week with Dad. He likes to do all sorts of silly things with Nolan and always keeps us laughing! And the video is of Nolan's latest homework...practicing lifting his head!
So this Mommy and Daddy have finally decided to get their booties off the couch! We will be running in a 10k on Memorial Day with our good friends- Uncle E and Auntie Kim. So we knew the day would be coming when we would have to start our training. Yesterday we ventured out to the Cottonwood Trail to run approximately 2 miles. We put Nolan in our jogging stroller and off we went! He slept the whole time, we breathed heavy, and came home feeling optimistic. Despite my sore knee...it was a good start!
O.k. So I've moved up in the world! I'm no longer merely stalking other people's blogs...I'm writing my own! Mark is so proud! Not that I have an extremely exciting life or anything important to say...no, it's merely to show off our very cute son, and keep our family and friends up to date on what's going on in our lives! So here we go!
