Last Sunday, I went with a group of friends to run in the Susan G. Komen race for the cure. They estimate that there were over 10,000 people at the race. No wonder I lost all my friends, my husband and my baby after the race! Don't worry...I eventually found them back at the car.

Not sure about this face.

Jogging for Jugs!

Also, Chloe has been working out the sleeping on her tummy thing. Tonight she is sleeping peacefully, face down in her crib. I'm sure she'll be screaming for me to come flip her over before the night is finished. The past two mornings, I have found her sleeping on her tummy (after waking for the 6:00 a.m. feeding), but that's only after I make her cry it out for a few minutes after I flipped her over half a dozen times. 

You only get one shot before the camera wakes her.

Waking up. Please note the HUGE mosquito bite on her head. One of five!
Tonight was my first attempt at making baby food! I made apples. They are in the freezer in an ice cube tray as I type. I have nothing against Gerber (or other jarred baby food). In fact, Chloe has eaten Gerber applesauce. This is about attempting to set a precedence in our house. I would like to keep fresh food rather than processed food in our pantry and fridge. While pre-made baby food is about as pure as it gets, it's cheap and fun for me to make my own. Sooooooo, tomorrow I'll make butternut squash and sweet potatoes. Of course, Chloe won't be eating them for a while. And hopefully, Mark and I will get out of the habit of buying pre-made, processed foods.


  1. Kim, Chloe is telling the girl to get out of way.She is in a hurry. Hope you enjoyed the race and knew where the car was so you didn't have to run home. You and your friends are a neat group and Chloe too. I love her p.j.'s. I hope the bug bite hasn't bothered her. You are so busy and still find time to prepare homemade food. It is snowing here today.

  2. Chloe looks like she is having fun with the jugs girls. She looks so sweet sleeping on her tummy. She is growing up way to fast!
