Mmmmm… gruel

by Chelsea Myers on May 30, 2013


Scott had his first serving of rice cereal Wednesday night. Recipe: 1tbsp pulverized rice grains + 4tbsps breast milk. Sounds pretty nasty, but he seemed to enjoy it.  We both took a turn feeding him, and, while he was maybe a little unsure at first, by the end, he was grabbing for the bowl.  I’d […]

We took advantage of the long weekend to take Scott on his first road trip.  We had two goals in mind.  The first was to enjoy being out of town and see a new part of the country, and the second was to “practice” traveling with a baby before we take a week-long trip this […]

Last Monday was Daniel’s and my 7th wedding anniversary and Memorial Day weekend is the 11th anniversary of our first date.  I was poking through Facebook and found a few cute pictures I thought I’d share. Playing hipster before hipsters were cool: Overly posed wedding shot: In Albuquerque (I can’t believe how young we look!): […]

UW runner’s clinic

by Chelsea Myers on May 23, 2013

Just to be clear up front: I’m not injured.  In fact, running is going really well right now.  The weather is beautiful and I just ran my first double-digit run (10 miles!) since the Haunted Hustle 2011 (I think). However, I took several months off running before and after Scott was born, and it’s clear […]


Weekend in review

by Chelsea Myers on May 20, 2013


Our weekend was a nice combination of activity and rest. Friday we tried to go downtown to State St. so I could sell some clothes at ReThreads, but it was graduation weekend and everyone moving back in with their parents had the same idea.  We stopped by the old Pop Deluxe and picked up a […]

CPR class

CPR baby

Tuesday night I went to a “friends and family” adult, child and infant CPR class at St. Mary’s.  I’d been meaning to take this class since before Scott was born – pediatricians recommend having at least one person in the home who knows CPR – but I’d let the ball drop.  However, preparing to start […]

Sorry for the radio silence.  It’s been a busy last couple weeks.  I spent the first weekend in May presenting a poster at a conference in Seattle plus Daniel’s parents were visiting.  Here are a few snapshots of what’s been going on: My hotel in Seattle: The painting on the window at the end of […]


Five months old

by Chelsea Myers on May 10, 2013


From this to this   in 5 short months. In month 3, Scott discovered that his hands were attached to him.  Last month, he discovered how to use them.  He’s moved beyond grabbing fingers to grab toys and faces – anything within reach. One evening he got the better part of his hand half way […]


Morning victory

by Chelsea Myers on May 2, 2013

Day 1 of no pre-workout nursing was a success!  Scott went to sleep around 9pm last night and didn’t wake (or at least didn’t cry for us to come get him) until 7am.  He was actually still sleeping then, but I had to get him up to get ready to go to daycare.  I admit, […]

It’s May and it’s finally starting to feel like spring!  I know I say this every time, but I can’t believe that we’re in the 5th month of the year and soon I will have a 5-month old baby!  Time is flying by.  Part of me wishes I could press pause and freeze everything exactly […]
