it’s 12 pm and i’ve already done the essential laundry [mostly yesterday], grocery shopped, and run with the stroller. annabel is down for a nap after a morning of the above plus plenty of outdoor exploration time and some wind-down time in her room. i just resisted the urge to throw in yet another load of laundry because after that flurry of activity, i just need a little wind-down time of my own.
sometimes it’s hard to remember that resting is an option.
so, as a’s mid-day naps are historically pretty solid, i’m hoping to have time for this post PLUS a little lie down time on the bed*. we will see . . .
first, a garmin vs. mapmyrun update
i received the 210 in the mail and so far, so good! it’s quite easy to use and — much as i figured — runs about ~3% ‘slower’ than the iPhone mapmyrun app. it’s also a lot easier to control and see splits, and thus far i am pleased!
here’s the cold, hard data:
[slow because a) hot b) stroller c) felt like it!]
a 3.3% difference.
mapmyrun splits followed by garmin splits:
you can see that they follow the same pattern, but for each segment, MMR says i ran ‘faster’ than the garmin did.
many people probably wouldn’t care about this. I SO DID. so this makes me happy!
this also makes me happy
new E.C. planner!!!
not sure about/depends on mood: bathtime, the pool
over 40 on my list. but not always easily understandable and/or with correct pronunciation.
flower = “owwww”
shoe = “oosh”
my current favorite = “yay!”
eats: e.v.e.r.y.t.h.i.n.g. the only thing i have ever seen her reject is lettuce! typical day:
6AM: milk, banana, and cheerios
9AM: plain yogurt + most of a peach
1:30 PM: milk, piece of whole wheat bread, dr. praeger’s veggie burger, green beans, cheese stick
3 PM: avocado pieces, blueberries, whole wheat pancake
6 PM: milk, dinner leftovers [whatever we had] or eggs/veg/rice or another easy fallback
skills: she’s got walking down and is working on running [sort of]. she loves to try to go down steps but can only make it without help if it’s a really small step [practicing, below].
she can hold a spoon but can’t really use it, and will eat yogurt with one hand while holding the spoon in the other, which is quite a sight to see. she does not have any interest in telling me when her diaper is dirty [or for that matter, having it changed] or in the potty in general.
aaaand with that, she is awake! ahh well, no lie down time . . . but i’m glad i got to finish this post.
* josh is at work. but it’s his LAAAAAAAAST call weekend until he starts working in miami beach!
