Not too much excitement

Not too much is going on around here, but at the same time, I'm super does that work? I feel awful for not having more pictures to post, but once again, I'll use the camera as the excuse. It's just awful for lighting and no matter how I tweak the settings, it just doesn't do what I want it to do. I keep reminding myself, 5 more really isn't that long.

I went for my wog (walk+jog) at riverfront park today. Since I re-started my c25k(couch to 5k) program (gets you 5k ready in about 8 weeks) I seem to be OK with running a whopping 90 seconds without it hurting my leg. So I can't decide, do I do another week at 90seconds, or go up in time to 3 whole minutes? I just don't want to re-aggravate my leg to the point of not being able to heal on my own again. I have a very hard time accepting defeat and letting go of things, and this is one of them. My body wasn't entirely made for running, and I have a hard time accepting that.

In other news, we got our csa box yesterday, this is what was in it:

1 red leaf lettuce, 1 green leaf lettuce, 1 head cabbage, 1 pint strawberries, .5 pint blackberries, bunch of potatoes, 2 onions, 2# of summer squash (I love patti pan squash, it's so fun to cut up), 2# heirloom tomato

I don't think I've ever had an heirloom tomato before, but I'm excited to taste the different varieties!

what's your baby sucking on? Oh, that's just the lotion bottle. E has gotten all weird about lotion. If I've just put it on my hands, legs, arms, wherever and she notices, she comes and licks me. I tend to try to use up ALL the lotion in a bottle, so I take the lid off and tap out what's left. One day, the bottle was on it's side near the edge of the counter in the bathroom. When I got out of the shower, Elisabeth was standing there licking bits of lotions off her fingers from the opening. She found this bottle by my bed (Hi, I'm Maddy, I'm a lotion-aholic) and decided it was better to put in her mouth. She cracks me up.

Speaking of making me laugh, we were at the library yesterday during story time. She decided that stranger danger was out for the day. E went over to a lady (who I know from work thankfully) and started rubbing her shoulder, then sat down next to her like it was no big thing. Then a little while later, there was a group of quite a few kids at the front listening to the story, so E stands up, shuffles her way through the crowd by holding onto other kids' shoulders, heads, whatever she can use for support and plops herself right down in the middle of them all, looks up at one of them (cause at this point she's facing backward), smiles at the person and says, "HI!" A little while later, she found a dad, stood there looking up at him and kept waving and saying hi. I really hope I didn't overstep anyone's comfort zones by letting her socialize, and if I did, I apologize, but it was just so interesting to see this little person going out of her way to interact with others.......and SO not what I'm used to at home....I'm used to the, "I'm bawling my head off if you aren't playing with me or holding me" baby... anyway, I giggled and thought it was pretty cute.

I wish you had been able to get a photo of her at the library. That would have been awesome.
That is gross about the lotion but she is YOUR baby afterall.

Oh Mads, I SO hear you on the IT band thing... I'm right there too, and it's so frustrating. And the library thing is AWESOME! That is so stinking cute, and I bet she was just delighted! I don't think it was naughty or anything of the sort to let her wander like that... I think it's great. :)
