Two Weeks Post Baby

Wells is now 2 weeks old! He spends most of his time sleeping, eating, and GROWING!

My 3.5 year old and 2 week old!

Look what came out with the laundry!

TMI paragraph of how I spend my days: I’m spending most of my time adjusting to 2 kids (has been pretty seamless SO FAR, especially compared to what I expected), feeding Wells and myself (nursing mother’s hunger can even beat out marathon training hunger many days!), changing diapers (SO MANY DIAPERS!), trying to get enough sleep, still trying to get my house in order (mom was a huge help with this last week – THANKS MOM! but still lots of do!), and convincing myself not to run in this perfect fall weather!

Running: I think about it a lot. Like I said, it’s been perfect weather around here. 40s-60s the past few days. My body is feeling awesome, but I still have a little uneasy feeling/slight pain in my lower stomach when I push on it so I’m holding off. (Did you know it takes 4-6 weeks for a woman’s uterus to shrink back down to pre-pregnancy size?) Also, my knees feel a little unstable and I really don’t want to go down the knee injury path! I’m still walking somewhere between 1-5 miles a day. This walking is broken down into mini walks as I take Currie and Wells to activities. We live in a walkable neighborhood so this has been the perfect transition back to activity for me. Sometimes Currie walks, sometimes she rides in the BOB and Wells hangs out in the Moby Wrap.

I’m starting a very loose list of races for 2014 and getting excited! The list will change based on when I start running, when I start speed workouts and how my body feels.

Remember how I’m racing in buns when I make my “comeback”? Here are the Week Two pics!

Week 2!

Good luck to everyone racing this weekend! I’m living through you until I can run (and race!) again!

    • Haha! Your sister is funny! Yes, I love the Moby. They are pretty expensive for something that is just a long piece of fabric and I laugh every time I think about it because I should have made one myself. My sister and her friends all made their own and they work just as well. Oh well. I don’t fault anyone who buys one, but if you are crafty at all, there are tons of tutorials on how to make them!

  1. You already look like you are running fast and rocking that uniform. Anyways, I’m glad everything has been pretty seemless and I know you are a great mother. Both are lucky to have you. :-)

  2. Aweee so glad things are going well (and that Mom was able to help out!). I’m sure walking helps even though you aren’t running yet. I can’t wait to see when you get back out there…..going to be on fire!
