5 months

DSC02839 copy

Another month has already disappeared. Sam now rolls over in both directions, and loves to sit up and play with his toys. He still loves that darn fist, which unfortunately comes with lots of drool these days. I still can't get him to eat rice cereal, but he can't get enough sweet potatoes.

I feel slightly sad as I hit another monthly milestone. I just don't have the time to adore Sam the way I did Wade. Time is going SO much faster and he is changing too fast for me to keep up with.


In other news, Wade is finally potty trained....hooray! And he drinks out of regular cups, so he gets to put a check mark next to his new year's resolutions.

Phil also has me training for a 5k next month, which might not sound like a big deal to most of you, but I don't run. At all. I started last week and made it to the end of the street before I almost puked. I had to laugh at myself today, because when I decided to start running, I thought "no big deal, I used to run 6:30 minute miles." Today I realized that the last time I ran a 6:30 minute mile, I was in 6th grade. Yeah, not that fast anymore. At this point, I'm hoping I survive. And yes, I know it's only a 5k.

This post makes me feel a little sad about my future children who will surely not get as much attention (or pictures) as my Clark boy. And your 5k training account sounds eerily similar to mine...except I've never run a 6:30 mile in my life. I'll just pretend I'm slow b/c I'll be pushing a jogging stroller?

Ha ha!! Motherhood makes us so soft, doesn't it? Good luck with the 5K!! Now that the weather is going to be nicer (now that I said that it'll snow again) we ought to have you guys down for a BBQ sometime.

You ran a 6:30 mile in 6th grade? That's amazing. Although, I guess you were probably also about eight inches taller than I was in 6th grade, so maybe it all makes sense. :) Is Phil at least going to run the 5K with you? Or will he be cheering you on from the sideline?
