Summer is here
We complained when it was rainy and cold for weeks on end, and now the heat has come with a vengence. There is never an in-between season in Indiana anymore. Ugh.
I will do a quick update of the last 2 months but it will be pictureless... they are all on my phone.
I signed up for the Indianapolis Women's Half Marathon in September. I am looking forward to having a larger goal to train for again. My calf is acting up again, which I assume is from overuse and crap flip-flops, so I am pampering it as best as I can. I got new shoes (!!!) and they are fabulous. I am busy trying to work, workout and spend time with Keith and Gracie, and its truly a balancing act. Every day is different and going so quickly.
We went to Florida in May for Veronica's high school graduation. Gracie was a super-star on the plane, not even making a peep. She ate, played and read, and enjoyed watching everyone else. She got to take her 1st dip in the pool while we were there and she loved it. She also got her 1st tooth, which was pretty cool for us. She is growing leaps and bounds! She loved hanging out with both sides of our family, but thought Lucy and Bryan were the bomb. She couldnt take her eyes off of them! She also stayed with her Aunt Kelly for a whole day while we went to the graudation. Lots of firsts on this trip!
Back home, Gracie mastered the art of baby mobility. Not only was she sitting up and rolling all over, she figured out how to army crawl. She is getting faster so we really have to keep our eyes on her now! She is constantly in motion - always wanting to bounce, clap, play, you name it - whic doesn't suprise me since I never slowed down when I was pregnant. Maybe she will be a runner or a swimmer? We can hope! She is very observant / nosey and easily distracted but is still such a happy baby, smiling all the time. She is such a joy! She loves sitting in the grass, people watching, trying to pet Eldon when he slows down enough, being sung to and smiles from her daddy. She is a happy 8 month old!
Keith has started baseball again and is on a really great team this year. I hope Gracie and I will be able to make at least a few games even though they are on week nights. He just spent a guys weekend in TN fishing and riding motorcycles in the Smoky Mountains, and came back refreshed and relaxed. He has purchases a new motorcycle, so we are selling his Yamaha if you are interested!!! He has another big fishing trip planned in July too.
