FIRST week of training

by Chelsea Myers on January 25, 2015

After being cleared to run Dec. 26th I’ve spent a few weeks working back to feeling comfortable running 3mi a few times a week.  It was actually easier than I’d thought to complete the distance, but I started out going slooowwwww.  Like 11:30 min/mile slow.  Slower than I was when I started running to begin with […]


Will at 2 months

by Chelsea Myers on January 14, 2015


Looks like Will may turn out to be my big boy.  At 2 months old, he’s 13lbs, 3oz (75th percentile), 23 1/2 in long (75th percentile), and has a head circumference of 16in (95th percentile!!)*.  Little guy doesn’t miss any meals.  W. had his 2-month pediatrician visit yesterday and got a bunch of shots, which […]


For a little context, I’d flipped the camera around so Scott could see himself during his performance. Also, this activity was supposed to be a distraction from trying to pinch his little brother. It didn’t work.

After reading contradicting reviews here and here, I took a break from Anna Karenina – my “read a serious book” project – to check out Marie Kondo’s, The Life-Changing Magic of Tidying Up.  To begin, yes, it’s a book about cleaning, which some people might think is boring (and when you put it that way…), […]

I promised myself I wouldn’t fall into this trap, but I’m a slacker when it comes to taking pictures of Will.  Here’s the only shot of him from the last few weeks.  Straight chubbin’: Hopefully I’ll be more motivated to take and share more pictures because I finally joined Instagram (I know, right?  2012 says “hi”).  You […]


Spring Training

by Chelsea Myers on January 5, 2015

A little more than a week ago I was finally cleared to start exercising again.  When I was getting back into shape after Scott was born, it was the middle of the winter in Wisconsin so I was doing all my runs on the treadmill and started running again by adding in run intervals while […]


The word of the year is

by Chelsea Myers on January 2, 2015

patience. With the boys (Scott especially) through tantrums and transitions.  Potty training, a big boy bed, crawling and maybe walking will all happen in 2015. With myself as I continue the transition to being a mom of 2 – especially once Will gets his shots and we can start venturing out into the community more […]


Currently – Jan 2015

by Chelsea Myers on January 1, 2015

Stealing this idea from Anandi.  A much better monthly update than I had been doing. Watching: Modern Family (just finished the most recent season available on Netflix) Justified season 5 (coming next from Netflix) Veronica Mars (but kind of on hiatus) Gilmore Girls (well, I watched one episode last night during Will’s last feeding after […]
