Mom life (the first six weeks)

Emmaline Lily was born on August 31 weighing in at a hefty 6 lbs 2 ounces… although I have to say she felt a lot bigger than that. My recovery has gone well, and she’s been a pretty easy baby so far. We’re up once or twice at night and lately she’s been sleeping at least one 5 hour stretch. I started easy running when she was 2.5 weeks old, beginning with one lap around my neighborhood (.62 miles) and gradually increasing the distance and speed. It hasn’t been easy, but I’m grateful for the ability to run even a little bit. We just started using the BOB with the infant car seat adapter this week, and she loves it! It puts her right to sleep. Next weekend we will be taking our annual trip down to North Carolina for the Bertie Spooktacular 5k. It’s a small race, but one of my favorites, and it will be a nice, easy (hopefully) return to road racing for this mama!

    • Yes! I forgot to tell you about this but I was out with some random people last weekend and got on the topic of Oiselle and someone name dropped your name… haha I’ll tell you more when I see you!

      • Oh geez, that is nerve wracking! HA-yes we will have to figure out a time and place to hang!

  1. I have the same Ergo carrier! I can’t wait to try it out! And I am glad you’ve had success with the BOB adapter, because I plan to do the same!

    Congrats on your sweet little lady!

    • Thanks Meghan! I really like the Ergo, although it was challenging to figure out how to put it on by myself at first. Congrats to you too!
