Back to Normal

I dropped my mom off at the airport this morning, so now it's back to the regularly scheduled programming.

It was great to have my mom here just because it was so nice to have an extra pair of hands during the week. Whether that meant that she was taking care of Norah or taking the trash out, she was a huge help to have around; plus, it was nice to have a break from my day to day routine and the week went by quickly. But, as fun as it was to have her here, I was ready to bid her "adieu," and I think she was ready to return home as well, so the visit was really the perfect length of time.

So, some pics from when she was here: A pic of Jerry, Norah and I. My mom, me and Norah. Do you think we could get Norah to look at the camera? No way.
My mom and Norah: Norah is smiling big at my mom but not at the camera.
And here's Norah crashed out in her swing after my mom left: It was a busy week for a baby girl!
You may note how much Norah's skin has cleared up in the past week; we've been using Cetaphil and it has worked wonders! Her skin is SO much better.

In running news, I haven't been running at all this week, but I did have my 6 week check up with the doctor and since everything checked out A-Okay, and I'm all healed up and have dr permission to resume all normal activity, I plan to start really running. I have my eye on a few small races for the end of the year, so I think I will begin formulating a schedule for myself and I should have some running soon to report on.

For now, though, I think I'm gonna follow Norah's cue and go take a nap!

A week is a long time to have any sort of guest when there is a baby in the house. Glad to hear you got the clear with the dr to resume normal activity.

Norah is beautiful! I completely understand what you mean about company... My mom used to say, "its always good to see them come and its always good to see them go." :)

Good luck getting back into running! I can't wait to read all about it!
