Introducing Baby Nora!

Yesterday my sister had her baby girl, Nora Bette Rohr! She was born at 8:04 AM weighing 6 lbs 9oz and 19 3/4 inches long. I was there waiting for her to come out of the OR so I was the first auntie to see her and hold her! Shortly after my sisters and mom got there and then I had to go to a meeting so I left but came back in the afternoon with Justin and the girls. We were also there when Teddy got to meet his sister for the first time and it was a really sweet moment so I am glad we got to see it. Teddy was by far the best kid with Nora and wanted to take her home that night. Cam was sweet to her despite the fact that he was clearly uncomfortable seeing his mama in a hospital bed. Mae was a little grabby but gave her the sweetest kiss. Everly was good once she was actually holding her but Aspen wanted nothing to do with her. Hopefully she grows out of that soon. It has only been a day but she seems to be nursing well and doing great. Can't wait to see her again!

Pat's Run 2016

This past Saturday I completed my 8th Pat's Run benefitting the Pat Tillman Foundation. Justin had a trail run the next day so he did not sign up for the run this year. My little sister and her boyfriend were running as well but I drove by myself. I got up early and did a little foam rolling at home while my coffee was brewing. I made some peanut butter banana toast and ate it in the car on the way out to Tempe. I must have been on my A-game that morning because I got out there really quickly and early. I grabbed some free samples and promotional items before the race started so that I would be able to leave right after I finished. I luckily met up with my sister and her boyfriend right before the race started. My sister passed me around mile 1 and I stayed shortly behind her until mile 3 and then there were a lot of turns and I couldn't see her but I think knowing she was ahead of me was good for me because I ran a new PR. Last year (here) I finished in 34:40 and this year I did it in 33:36. I know that doesn't seem like a lot but it was hot and shaving a minute off is a big deal for me in only 4.2 miles. It was a little weird this year because normally you finish on the 42 yard line but Sun Devil Stadium is under construction so we finished outside but I was just happy with how fast I ran. Running has never come easy to me so the fact that I finished 37th out of over 2200 females aged 20-29 makes me pretty proud. Hopefully next year it is not so hot!

Weekend in Review

I had such a fun and jam packed weekend and the only thing that could have made it better is a nap and maybe an extra day! It started off Friday night with two soccer games that I had to go to almost directly from work. We tied and won one so can't be mad about that. I did scrape up my knee a bit again though so that was annoying because my scrape from outdoor last month was finally healed up! By the time I got home the girls were in bed and then I got up and left the house while it was still dark to head out to Tempe for Pat's Run (will post separately about it later). After the run I met Justin with the girls at the pediatrician because Aspen has been holding on to a sinus infection for a while. Girlfriend is still traumatized from all of those ear infections and cried when we put her on the scale (22 lbs.) and then screamed when the doctor came into the exam room. Luckily, she calms down again pretty fast. After the appointment I took the girls to Lakeshore Learning for the free craft Saturday. It wasn't a really cool craft but it was something free to do and Aspen loved playing with all of the toys on display. After lunch Everly came with me to go to the library to check out the booksale and also run a quick errand at the mall. Later that night I went out with my sister, her boyfriend, and my sister-in-law to go to dinner and a music festival. We saw Nate Reuss at AltAz and it was really fun. We had dinner first at the Pizza People Pub and it was a great choice. The weather was also really nice and it was just a great show. Sometimes I think I am too old for that kind of stuff but I am really glad I went. The next morning Justin had a trail run so it was just me and the girls until he got home. We made cinnamon rolls and then my sister and Mae came over for a little bit to play. Everly had a birthday party to attend for a girl at school so I took her to that since it was during Aspen's naptime. It was a really cute Sophia themed party and Everly was so excited that they had a bounce house. She also made out with a pretty awesome party gift bag so she wasn't even mad when I made her leave a little early so we could meet my mom and sisters to get pedicures. It was her first time going and we went because my sister is going to have her baby this week. Everly seemed to enjoy it and looked like she was going to fall asleep in the chair. Also, one of the nail techs has a little girl almost the same age so they had lots of fun playing together while we finished. We made brownies and stayed home for dinner last night and it was a good end to the weekend. Everly was so worn out she fell asleep on the living room floor! 3 more days until baby Nora is here!
