Man oh man it's hard to have a hobby and a baby.
I'll take it though! I'm convinced that it will get easier to get a blog post in and a run in as I get better at managing my time as a momma! With that being said I have had to continue for one more week with week one of the beginning running training plan. I got all but one of last weeks training runs in and so far this week I've done much better. It won't hurt my body to redo week one as my knees and hips were a bit sore. I don't need to overdo it this early in the training plan. I am excited because Ashley S is going to run with me and I have never had a running partner.
Blogging is really hard to fit in. Before Kennedy's arrival I had visions of blogging about her changes from week to week, posting daily activities as a momma, and sharing more of my heart as God is working in me during this time. How does one have time to be a "Mommy Blogger?" Maybe I will figure it out soon.
We are striving to live our life with the following priorities in order:
1. God first!
3. Our work
In the past we have found that if we do not keep God first everything else feels crazy and nothing works out. Kyle and I argue more, our finances get off track, we are emotionally unbalanced, our relationships falter, and our business halts. We each have a personal daily plan to keep us on track with our relationship with God. I am reading Power Thoughts by Joyce Meyer along with The Bible and they are helping me to keep my mind in check. We are also praying about how we can serve.
Kyle and I celebrated our 4 year wedding anniversary on March 9th! We are so thankful for each other and LOVE that God knew we were a perfect fit. We celebrated by going to 3 of our favorite Austin places while Kennedy stayed with her YaYa and Papa John (Kyle's parents). We shared a chicken enchilada at Hula Hut, got coffee at Mozarts, and each had a pancake at Magnolia Cafe. I LOVE HIM!!
Kennedy is 7 weeks old today! WOW! I can't believe my little angel girl is almost 2 months old. Time flies when you are having fun and that statement is loud in clear in my life these days. Every day I find myself more and more in love with her. Nursing has become easier but I supplement during the day because of work. In the last few days Kennedy has been smiling more and has even laughed a few times. Many have asked what we are calling our little girl. We find that we call her Kennedy when talking about her,"Where is Kennedy's diaper bag?" and KK when talking to her. It works for us. She is loving her swaddle blankets and they relax her easily and she sleeps so sound when tucked snuggly inside. Every day is an adventure and we are loving it.
Obviously my family is my first "job" but we are so very blessed with a wonderful team with FHTM. This month has proved to be an exciting month for many on our team. We have several new regional sales managers which is a promotion in our company where individuals can begin earning unlimited pay.
