Return of Dating Life...

Oh, it's not at all what you think! Justin and I have had a date six mornings a week the last two weeks at 6am in our stuffy garage. Yes folks, it's Insanity time yet again. Why on earth would I want to stay in bed an hour longer now that I'm done nursing and Reagan is FINALLY sleeping through the night?!

It's been really nice to take a break from running and also to work out with Justin again. We always went to the gym and on runs together pre-children, and it helps a lot to have someone to suffer through Sean T's butt kicking every morning.

I've also been hitting the gym mid-day a few times per week and sticking to the elliptical. It's a nice break in the day, and Britton and Reagan love the Y child development center. I've squeezed in a few very short runs too (my knee is still bugging me), and even managed to swim 1000 yards last Monday during Britt's swim lessons. So while my Nike Plus app thinks I'm a total slacker, it's quite the contrary. I'm looking forward to the results Insanity will (hopefully) bring in te next six weeks.

Spring Break 2012

We took a little family trip to Fayetteville, AR over spring break to tag along with Justin's work trip, and to just get outta dodge for a while.

Justin works in Bentonville a large part of the time, so we stayed there at a nice little business hotel called Simmons Suites. We got two adjoining rooms, which worked out great for the little ones, and each had a kitchen too.

We spent much of our free time in Fayetteville, which is a hidden gem of a city, mixed with business professionals, young families, and college kids/staff. University of Arkansas is located in the heart of downtown, and is a very pretty campus. It's not "the sticks" like most of y'all are picturing at this moment!

Here are some favorite pics. Also a note on my picture taking...Reagan LOVES the camera, however Britton does not. So if it looks like I'm playing favorites, just know it takes about a gazillion pics of Britt to get just a couple decent ones. Reagan would pose all day long though!

Pool Time!

Britt started swim lessons at the Y last week. He's the youngest in the class and the only boy, so jury's still out regarding the definition of success. He can't really swim by himself, but he does seem more and more comfortable jumping in, playing on the steps, and going under. It's a fun evening activity though, and he's always super pumped to go to the pool.

Britton Turns 3 and Reagan's Baptism

We had one grand ol' celebration last Sunday for Britt's 3rd birthday and Reagan's baptism. Both of our families (minus Courtney an Keith, who we missed very much!) made the trip into town for church and then a little backyard celebration.

I ran around like a crazy person and didn't get many good pics on my phone, so I need to stalk my mom, sister, and sister in law for theirs' soon.

Here are a few decent ones:

A note on posting & Easter Pic

You would think that I would have things figured out by now, now that Britt is becoming more independent an Reagan reaches her first birthday, but obviously by my lack of posting, I do not! It's not that we don't have much going on, or that things aren't great...in fact it's quite the contrary. The days are filled with lots (much exciting, much mundane), and I just have let some things slide as other things pop up. In fact, things are awesome for We Are Marshall!

So I'm going to try to post as often as I can, but the posts might just be a picture or two, or a quick update on a new thing that B or R is doing. Nothing life changing (or even exciting) for anyone else, but more so so that I have something to look back at.

Here's a recent favorite pic (from church on Easter):

Peek a boo, I love you!

This video was taken in Saturday Feb 4 and is one of my favs so far. I had just run a 5k PR that morning (finally under 22 minutes!), and we were waiting at the CVS MinuteClinic because Justin had a miserable sinus/ear infection.

Over a month later, Reagan still loves her cow (more than ever...did I mention I had to buy a back up on eBay and paid a pretty hefty penny? All in the name of love (or to calm her fussiness)).

So I've Finally...

...Fixed my never ending blog issues. I've been trying to fix the iphone app without having to ditch it and start over but sadly no success. Bad news is I lost all my drafts over the last few weeks. Good news is I have lots to re-write, and hopefully the video uploader will cooperate. Hopefully I'll get around to it soon, in between chasing a crazy 10 mth old (who can climb the stairs in 1 min flat) and being a short order cook to an almost-3 year old's insatiable appetite. Oh yeah, and that thing called work as well...
Happy Monday.

New Favs

R LOVES the park swing (never really took to her baby swing though, it's officially put up for good at the house of Marshall). She's so content hanging out whisle B plays. Thank goodness the weather has been nice (well actually verging on TOO warm).


YouTube Video

B's new fav is his water table that has now become a sand box/table. Our poor flower beds are looking rough from all the digging he's done in the bark and dirt (yes, keepin' it classy around here).





And our new favorite way to shop. R loves being out of her infant seat, and luckily B cooperates and doesn't stand up (we'll see how long that lasts).




My new favorite outfit (on the clearance rack, whoop whoop). I'm obsessed with paisley.




And Justin's new favorite pastime with Reagan. Just kidding, but had to include this picture. We really spice it up on weekends around here.

8 mths old today!

It was Britton's first day back at school, and Reagan and I were bored and procrastinating getting work done.

I can't believe I already have an eight month old again! She's cutting a second tooth, so she's been kind of fussy and drooly. Here's a few shots of us goofing off in the bathroom mirror.

Prior to poop explosion....







Post poop explosion... She was obviously dying to wear her cougar outfit today...











And Mr. Too Cool for School at pickup today...




On another note, I did an Insanity DVD yesterday, which I never think are over-the-top hard because they're short, but my legs are burning today. I managed to pound out 5 miles at the Y at a sub 8 min pace today though. Training is going well for St Pete RNR half in February. I rewarded myself with fries and split a milkshake with B today after school on our weekly McD's date. As you can see I've already broken any resolution to cut out the crap, and I'm hoping the gym Januarians will die down soon...I like the nursery and cardio equipment empty!!

Happy Thursday.

Reagan - lucky month 7

Before I forget, I wanted to make note of what a big month 7 has been for Reagan. I'll probably move this over to the Watch Reagan Grow page (which is totally not up to date, and speaking of, Britt's is still empty...).

- "Crawling" - more of a fast pace army crawl, but nonetheless very effective.

- She says "dadadada and has just recently started saying "lalalalala".

- Can get from all fours back to sitting on her bottom and visa versa.

- First taste of puffs and yogurt melts. She is a HORRIBLE solid food eater at this point though. We're actually giving her a bottle of formula to get her to sleep longer than a few hours at night. It seems to be working, which is good because my bag is out of tricks with Mis Fussy Pants and her bad sleeping habits.

That's about it (well, all I can think of at the moment). Here's a few recent pics of my Priss Pot:
