Keepin' it real

I have 1 month until I go back to work -- it seems like a looming deadline but I know it will be good to get out of the house and feel like a contributing member of society again. I'm going back 3 days a week, too, so that should provide some balance while also not feeling like I never get to see Logan. This past Thursday I went in for the end of our staff meeting so everyone could meet him. While my boss was holding him, he pooped his diaper really loud. Kids have the greatest timing.

I was feeling really great running recently, but then all of the sudden my right knee started hurting so I'm backing off and taking some time to make sure it's okay. I'm sure it is and maybe has to do with off biomechanics or possibly my hips being in a different alignment right now. Logan and I made it to Masters practice again yesterday morning. Fast Friday is very hard with my current fitness, but things are improving. On Tuesday I did 5x200s alternating swim and pull and I was back in the 2:40 range, as opposed to the 3:05+ range I was in just 3 weeks ago when I first got back into the pool.

We went back to the Lovgren's to watch the Superbowl and cheer on the Giants. We bought Logan an Eli Manning onesie and he looked very cute in his little outfit. My grandpa was a sportscaster for the Giants so my family has always cheered for them - he even has his own wikipedia page!

Working really hard to lift his head.

Tomorrow Logan will be 2 months old! And on Monday he goes in for his 2 month checkup where unfortunately he'll be getting several shots.

Glad things are going good. :)

Good luck with the shots! Sadly the shots don't get easier on you as they get older.

Give him a little shot of tylenol before you go and take a bottle for right after he gets the shots. If Marty is going, you might want to let him stay in the room and you can walk's a little tough.

Another hint, when he starts to cry, he'll probably hold his breath a little and turn red...just blow in his face and it will force him to take a breath.

Glad you guys are doing alright!

Angela's advice for the shots is great. Wish I'd known it many years ago!

Love Logan's timing on the poop at work! Funny.

Those are great hands and feet pictures. They'd be great in an album!
