brief updates, by the numbers

April 29, 2014

3: days of maternity leave left before I am back at work.  (Yes, I’m starting on a Friday.  Yes, that was on purpose!  Very happy to have one catch-up day and then a weekend to regroup before starting for real).

88:  degrees F during my run today.  I have decided that since I live here, I’m going to have to get used to running in warmer temps.  Truthfully, I didn’t think it was that bad — there is always a bay breeze here and since the duration was short (31 minutes) I didn’t really have enough time to get overheated.

24:  consecutive hours I spent over the weekend with NO recreational internet use!  WOOHOOO!  I would not say that I am ‘over’ my addiction yet, but I am making progress.

2: nightly wakeups these days, as you could probably gather from the recent DITL post.  C is reaching the age where everyone seems to enjoy asking, “Does he sleep through the night?”  Uhh no, but I still think he’s a pretty awesome (and easy) baby.  I found myself searching the blog archives to see when Annabel went down to one wakeup (looks like at about 3-4 months).  Hoping that C will follow suit, but I realize that they are two different babies, so I am prepared for whatever.

2:  playdates this past weekend!  I have to say I really love playdates, especially on the weekends that Josh is on call.

3: days I have been tracking my eating.  I am trying to strike a better balance in this area and often find that just writing things down for a short stretch helps.

1: month I have been using my new planner.  I promise I’ll share my system with you all in the next few days.  I really like it so far.

2: peas in a pod!

OMG.  Sometimes I see them together and just can’t believe they are really both mine.   (Well, mine and Josh’s.  Ours.)

    It has been a while since I have commented but have been reading religiously all your updates. The last pic is just beautiful and I love the expression on Mr.C’s face 🙂 I cannot wait for you new planner update post, which one are you using now?

    On a totally random note, I hate the question, "is your baby sleeping through the night?" Umm, I have an almost two year old and he is still not sleeping through the night. Every kid is different, C will get into a pattern soon too!

    would you mind sharing where did you get this mat ? my child goes to a Montessori and he enjoys lying down or sleeping on a mat on the floor. The one they have is kind of tiny and been looking online for floor mats but in vain…always get the play mats in the search . Thanks.

    Smart to go back to work on Friday. A full week can seem overwhelming at first!

    I am so glad you decided to keep updating. I like reading about your adventures and life! Good job on the 24 hours without recreational internet usage!

    I’m such a dork because I really can’t wait until your planner post! I’m a little too excited to see what you’ve been using!
