Babies, Naps and Braces

I have been a bit of a slacker on the whole blogging thing, it sure takes a lot of time.  Here's an update on my super exciting life.  On McKenna's birthday, June 13, little baby Coen was born.  He is my new little nephew who is just as cute as can be.  He was really small like my kidlets and I had so much fun seeing and holding did Kobe.

He is Jenne's, my sister in law, baby.  He weighed 6 lbs. 2 ounces. and was 19 inches long.  I just love when they are tiny.  I could stay up there and hold him all the live long day, just ask my family I am a bit of a baby hog!  Sorry, but I truly believe that I enjoy it more than anyone else ;)
Here is another pic just because he is so BLASTED cute!
Yes...he is smiling at me ;)

Ever since this whole RAGNAR thing I have been super sleepy.  It hit me hard today, I took 2 naps...that's right 2!  My morning nap was a little weird I'm not sure I ever really feel asleep even though I was EXHAUSTED.  So I went in for round 2 this afternoon.
This week my workouts have felt SUPER hard, especially KYT.  Holy moly, it was a killer!  I can't decide if it was really that much harder than the rest or maybe it's the fact that I missed 3 kyt workouts in a row.  That is never a good idea.  However, my plan worked.  I wanted to be smart with my workouts, doing a marathon and a week later a Ragnar can really do a number on you.  And seems how I injured myself after my last marathon, I decided to do things a little differently.  And I am SOOOOOO happy to say that I am injury free and haven't missed a day of running.  I have cross-trained a bit, which was a smart move, I got to be good friends with the spin bike last week.  I am running, but during all of my workouts, weights included, I have felt like weaksauce.  I guess my body is still trying to recuperate from all of the torture.  Hopefully, I will be back to normal soon.

I had to take both of my cornies to the Orthodontist today.  I was so impressed.  I took them to Warren Orthodontics and I couldn't believe how nice they were.  They sent my kids home with oodles and doodles of stuff.  They were given a bag of candy which they will no longer be able to eat with braces, a shirt and a water bottle.  Kobe has to get braces on July 5th, I can't wait for his teeth to get fixed.  Kenna isn't ready just yet but has to get 4 teeth pulled and she is scared to death.  The gal gave her a bag of goodies, a shirt and a water bottle just for being cute.

Frightening isn't it??

Sorry this was such a random, boring post but I will try to redeem myself next time.

How long after a big race does it take you to feel back to normal?

After the marathon I felt fine, I will let you know when I recover from Ragnar.  The running wasn't the hard part, I wasn't sore at all, it was the no sleep that killed me.

Are you a baby freak?

AB.SO.LUTELY!  Bring on the babies!
