Baby Ezra is here!

Little peanut

If you follow me on Twitter or Instagram, you probably already know this since I’ve been inundating my followers with pictures of my sweet little baby boy.  Ezra decided to surprise us and come a little over 2 weeks early.  He must have heard his big brother talking about Santa bringing him presents and wanted [...]

Painting, baking and running

Cake pops

It’s almost baby time! I’m 37.5 weeks so just two and a half weeks until my due date.  Although, since I’m full term, this little man is welcome to make his entrance anytime he wants now.  We can’t wait! I’m delivering at a different hospital this time so we went for a tour of the [...]

Challenged by my own challenge

Zain is in love with it!

Test run postponed

After my appointment with the sports massage therapist a week and half ago, I was supposed to spend a week doing my strength exercises then go for a test run last Friday.  Unfortunately, I was still feeling that nagging soreness in my ankle, right behind the inside of my ankle bone.  I decided I should [...]
