the teething monster.

Well my little monster is being visited by the teething monster. Not fun. I really can't complain as she is a wonderful, happy baby, most of the time. The only thing that has helped today is a washcloth wih an icecube in it. Poor baby. We will make it through.
     In preparing for the race on saturday, I did 4.25 miles on the cross trainer and then another 3 mile walk this evening. I an really having doubts about being able to run the whole 6.1 miles on Saturday. My legs have been bothering me and I know that the extra baby weight is not helping, along with the really sore body that comes with brestfeeding. I will make it through and I am going to be so proud of myself just for finishing the race. The weather has been so lovely and is going to so amazing on race day, and that is a huge blessing. Started taking Calcium to help with the running and to hopefully prevent any fractures and to keep my bones healthy and strong.
     Only one week from now I will be at my parents house in Phoenix. I have been thinking a lot as to why I decided to go as it means another trip, on my own with an almost 5 month old. Last time I did this I said I wouldnt do it again. See, she is getting too old to sleep the entire trip and finds others on the plane either terrifying or her best friend and then has the attention span of a tipical 5 month old and demands that you, her only source of entertainment, perform the same song and the same conversations till your blue in the face. I love her though. She is so wonderful.
     Well, Tomorrow is another day and I am looking forward to watching the inside of my eyelids. Enjoy!
