It was on this day, ten years ago, that Jared and I first became marathoners! We were engaged, new to San Diego, just a couple of 20-somethings, who set out to do the “impossible.” It’s a day that changed my life — ranking up there with our wedding day, the births of our children, and… Continue reading The First Marathon: RnRSD 2009

How we’re growing?: At 24 weeks, our little guy’s the size of an eggplant and about 1.5 pounds. I can tell he’s going through a growth spurt, because my appetite and belly are growing big time! It still surprises me every time I catch my reflection in a window or mirror, so I can’t help… Continue reading Cookie: 24 weeks
Written: Thursday, 11/10 How we’re growing?: At 20 weeks, baby’s about the length of a banana (or the size of a gameboy! Remember those?!) and nearly one full pound!
