    Defy Gravity would be such a great date night! We really need a date over here, I might steal that idea! I think Griffin started the backwards crawl about 3 weeks ago and this week he has mastered the army crawl (and has started to do a bit of crawling up on his knees). So be prepared, it’s coming sooner than you think! He’s into everything, especially pulling books off of his shelf and going after our dog’s tail. Love the cookie monster costume!

    Love the Halloween costume! Just when I thought your daughter couldn’t get any cuter.

    Hi Sarah! I found your blog a little while ago, through Andrea ( and I have to say I love it! As a med student and runner, so much of what you write about really hits home!

    That back flip is awesome. I just showed it to Jason and said we needed to go to a trampoline place like that. He wasn’t quite as enthused.

    Love the little cookie monster.

    A is such a doll! So cute and so glad you are having a wonderful weekend – how it should be!

    Sounds like an awesome day! A is so adorable in that costume.

    Was that you doing a back flip? Whoa. You’ve got mad skilz, lady!

    Did I read that correctly when you said A was crawling? Look out here she comes! It’s such a fun stage.

    FWIW I consider 6:45 "sleeping in." We got to 7:15 today and it was glorious.

      Yep- holdover from my competition cheerleading days (looooong ago). Never mastered it on non bouncy land though! And yes a is getting more mobile! But she can only scoot backwards so far and not efficiently either :).
