Six Weeks and Great News!

Yesterday my precious little man turned six weeks old! Time has flown. My life has completely changed in the past six weeks... and I wouldn't trade it for the world.

This is where we started on day one.

Now look at the big boy all propped up! He is wearing his "big boy" pants (which is what I call long pants, on him).

He has graduated to "big boy" bottles (the 8 oz. kind instead of the 4 oz. kind).

Today we struck out together to go to my 6-week postpartum checkup. I anticipated getting the green light for running. Sure enough, I got a clean bill of health! My doc specifically said "you can get back to running." Yay!

Isaac chills as I get prepared for my run.

I decided to make it a treadmill run. I knew I couldn't/shouldn't RUN too much, so for a beginning effort I ran .1 of each half mile. It felt great! I'm sure I'll be sore later (my runner doc assured me of that), so I kept the effort to 2.5 miles (2 miles walked, .5 mile ran). But it felt so good to do it! Yay me!

I am actually sweating in this post-run photo!

Depending on my soreness level, I may or may not try again tomorrow. We shall see!
