Maizlyn's First 5K

We participated in our first 5K as a family today! The Old Glory Run in Cold Spring honored our military and proceeds will benefit disabled vets. We really enjoyed the race and its purpose and plan to do it again next year. We were also pretty happy with our finish of around 27 minutes. The last time I ran, it was two miles two months ago. The last time Pat ran was last fall when I was pregnant. The weather is finally cooperating again! Pictured is Pat and Maizie right before the start of the race.

Pat & Maizie crossing the finish line. Yes, I get bragging rights for finishing before my husband. ; ) I am excited to use our jogging stroller with Maizie during our next race but we have to wait until she can sit unassisted.Bren & Maizie chilling after the race.

Four Months Old!

Maizlyn took her 2nd trip to Fargo, ND last month. It was her first stay in a hotel and she did wonderful both nights! I captured a picture of her on the bed before we left. She enjoyed meeting many of mommy and daddy's friends and was so cute in her pink dress at the wedding. I would post a picture of the 3 of us but someone forgot the camera in the car because they "had to make 3 trips from the car to the reception" and mommy was enjoying champagne in a hummer limo with her friends. Trust me though -- she was adorable...even though someone forgot to put on her tights. ; )
Maizlyn had her 4-Month check-up on 5.8.08. She is in the 95th percentile for height (24") and 75th percentile for weight (14.5 lbs). She loves to talk, babble, smile and put her hands in her mouth.

Maizie loves to kick her legs and feet. Above, she discovered that she can kick the bee and dragonfly that hang above her swing. She can thank her mama for those feet. ; )

One Year Ago...

It was one year ago today that we found out I was pregnant with our little girl. I remember that day so vividly. It was Thursday, May 10, 2007. One of the best days of our lives! Enjoy this picture of our smiley little girl. More will be posted soon.
