It seems appropriate that so many first have been going on here lately, given the entire post I wrote about first year firsts just the other day. (there is a giveaway there, go enter!)
I am not sure I could have used the word first any more in that sentence.
I think I forgot to mention that our first born got her ears pierced, after much begging, with her bestie the other day! I am glad I waited until this was her idea (she has been BEGGING for weeks!)because she reminds me that her ears need cleaned every day, which I know I would forget if I had to remember on my own. And she has “kitty hello” earrings, such a cool chick!
I ran my first turkey trot (in super freezing cold weather!) on thanksgiving. It really wasn’t that bad at all, and I am pretty sure the cold motivated me to run faster than normal - I’m not fast at all, so I’ll take any extra seconds off my time I can get!
Aleesia enjoyed her first thanksgiving.
Gianna wrote out table cards for everyone and decided where each person should sit, she is becoming such a young lady these days!
Our weekend continued with me taking Gianna to the movies for the first time. We saw Frozen which is ADORABLE!
Aleesia had been stuffy (again again again, she’s always stuffy!) and generally crabby so we took her to the doctor, first ear infection.
Followed up on Sunday with her first stomach virus. (honestly. I had no idea a 10 month old could vomit so much at one time.)
It was a super fun end to the holiday weekend up in here! (but overall, we did have a fun weekend)
I also got a little surprise in my inbox today:
Looks like I’ll be adding “first half marathon” to my list of 2014 firsts. No backing out or slacking on training now! I honestly did not think I would be selected (no one else I know who registered was selected) so I am a little shocked, nervous, mostly excited though. It’s something I’ve wanted to accomplish for a long time and no time like the present, right?
