This weekend. Here’s what happened:

FRIDAY: After work, I took Cora to visit Dad at the office! She was in a great mood and made everyone laugh! Friday night, we went to New York Pizza with Nathan, Kam, Henry & Amelia! It was delicious and fun. I ate a whole pizza and could’ve eaten more! Cora also sat in a high chair for the first time – not just on top of one in her car seat! After dinner, we went home to rest a minute, and then I went out for a run with Kam. YES – after eating a whole pizza! I run really well after crazy meals, it seems. ANYWAY – I walked to Kam’s house to wait for Nathan to get home so she could go, and we headed out. Out of nowhere, I realized Choxie was way back behind me, and her leash had broken! She was sniffing in someone’s monkey grass THANK GOD because she hadn’t realized yet that she was free. I ran to her really fast and basically sat on her to make sure I had a good hold on her because a motorcycle was coming, and she HATES motorcycles! I knew she’s run after it and get hit probably. All was well! We called Brian, and he came to pick her up. Finally, after all that, Kam and I made it all the way to 31 and back. We walked more than we had planned, but we had some chatting to do, and chatting while running isn’t as easy! 🙂

SATURDAY: I already don’t remember. Crap. What I do know is that at dinner time, we went to visit Drew, Vaughan & Sam! We took them dinner – Hamburger Heaven at their request. He’s so tiny! He smiled for me, too. Cora is a GIANT compared to him! I swear we did more good stuff on this day, but I have forgotten.

SUNDAY: Church! It was good as always. Nathan’s a great preacher, and I sang, and Brian played drums. Fun stuff. Ms. Phella watched Cora for us, which she loves to do, so good times all around!

All weekend, Cora has been so sweet and hilarious. I love her! She’s fussy right now because she’s going through a developmental leap and possibly teething, but any time other than fussing, she’s amazingly cute and sweet. Awww. It doesn’t help that she finally stopped waking up every 1 or 2 hours like she did for a few days. We back to 4 hours or so, and I can handle that!


Today was pretty good! It was my busiest day of the year, but it really wasn’t even that bad. I actually think today was better than any day I’ve had in the past 2 or 3 weeks!

After work, I came home to find Brian in the living room with his long lost friend, Craig! We haven’t seen Craig in 2-4 years – no one can remember, haha. He’s basically a transient rock climber with a fascinating life and tons of stories. Anyway, he messaged me online to say he was in town for a few days and wanted to catch up. Sweet! He didn’t stay long, but we did find out he wants to come back early next year and stay a little while. That would be rad!

I went on a run today. I went farther than before, but I walked two times. I think that’s still a success! I could’ve pushed through, but I was avoiding nausea.

We went to dinner at Tecate with Brian’s parents for his birthday tonight. We went to YogurtLab afterward! The salted caramel flavor is dee-lish!!! Cora and I danced to some Bob Marley there, and then she got sleepy, so we went home. It was almost 9! I think I got a couple of those “they’ve got that baby out too late!” looks, haha. She went to bed right on time, though!

It was a good day. Word.

sleepy times

Cora has been doing new and weird things at night the past two nights. When we put her in her bed, she immediately starts rolling all around and kicking the rails of her crib. Tonight, she added to that and also reached through the rails to hold them and to grab at me. She’s been harder to get to sleep for obvious reasons. Tonight, I finally just got her to sleep *fingers crossed* at 10 PM, and she’s in there, for the first time, actually on her side with her head kind of face down and an arm outstretched. She’s trying to stay up late and play, and then goes to sleep on her belly/side. That’s my girl! I know this story all too well. I had a hunch that she’d prefer sleeping on her side/belly when she got older, and tonight just may be the start of it.
