Birthday Thanks!

To Grandpa Mark and Oooh La La, thank you for the birthday card.

To Nana Cris, thank you for coming out to China for Chase's birthday.

To Kevin, Megge, Sean and Julia for the lovely outfits, stuffed animals and cupcake sticker! She loves them all!

To Jeff, Victoria, Olivia and Jack, thank you for the lovely dress and adorable book.

To Sarah and Lockett, thank you for posting your birthday wishes.

I really wanted to get pictures of her in each and every outfit, but time just seems to be slipping by - and I have no good excuse.

I wanted to make sure I thanked everyone for thinking of Chase, before we get too far into April!

15 Min.

I ran for 15 min today. I can't believe I am THAT out of shape.
I guess carrying a 25lb baby isn't the best for cardio.
The good news: I don't have to spend any time lifting weights - I already do that all day, everyday.

I have to say that jumping on the treadmill was like catching up with an old friend. That said, it would have been better if I had my best girlfriend from home running along beside me.

She was always more fit than I, which made me try harder in a "I wish I was as fit as you" competitive way.

I was a little afraid that I would feel a little extra skin bouncing around, but I didn't. I was a little afraid it wouldn't feel good, but it did. I didn't want to leave my darling girl at home with YP, but I know she is in good hands, and I know I need this time for myself.

I just can't believe how hard it is for me to walk out of the door without her in my arms.
