Aiden is still mostly bald up top, the hair he does have is super blonde and he's very tan. Oliver was blonde until around 3 I think, so I have no doubt it will turn dark eventually, but I love to rub his soft scalp like he's a baby still. He's still a great sleeper, hitting 3 and 4 hour naps, but do NOT let him nap until 5pm or you'll be sorry come 9:30pm and he's running around wild. He eats decently, but like any child some days he starving and others he nibbles. We've grown tired of bananas and the cuties aren't tasting great right now, he loves pretzels and cheese.
He starts his second year of preschool next month, we are upping him to 3x a week. I'm sure the last few months he's been home will lead to tears the first few days, but he just learns so much there.
Madison is just so grown lately, she's obsessed with Mine Craft and I honestly really don't know what it's about, but to hear her laughing at the videos is pretty hilarious. She's doing really well with her Math tutoring, still going 2x a week and doing her homework daily. I hope that gives her a strong start for 2nd grade, we are requesting she be placed with a seasoned teacher, are we allowed to interview a teacher? I may ask about that! We've been playing club soccer this summer, but we aren't quite ready to leave our rec team, we've been together for years now and they play so well together. If we can work it out we may do both.
She's really a good girl, but let me tell you - I have had some flashes of her as a teenager. When she's tired or hungry she turns into the sassiest little turkey - can't imagine where she gets it from :) But, whoa. She really pushes my buttons, never Daddy's, just mine. I'm not ready for that attitude, I still smother her with kisses in front of her friends when I drop her off at Camp....and she lets me.
We are going on month 3 of Crossfit and I've never felt stronger. I swear every day I feel like a badass when I walk out of there, even on days I don't do as well as others or lifted as much as I could've. I'm breathing heavy and sometimes wanna puke... I love it so hard. I've PR'd my back squat and deadlift this last week, but alas I'll be gone soon for a long while it seems.
My surgery is next Friday, but August 8th I have another appointment for a second opinion on my knee issues. The first ortho I spoke with was pretty vague on treatment plans and pretty much told me to never run again. I refuse to accept that so I have an appointment with a sports knee dude who was recommended to me from another running friend. When I have surgery on my knee I'll be out for up to 3 months. It's gotta be done though and better for me to overlap my recoveries at the same time. I'll be back lifting the 10 pound weights, but that's ok, just more goals for me to smash!
I'm really gonna miss my girl time though, running and working out is so much more that a physical thing for me. It's how I connect with people who share the same interests as me, who I bitch to about my husband, it's my adult time!
Who else would meet up for margaritas at 9pm and get up at 5am to run around? Only the craziest and best buds.
