My big day

Yesterday was a big day for me. I started off the day by running the Santa Barbara 1/2 Marathon. It was a nice race, weather was perfect and I enjoyed the scenic route from the Page Youth center to SBCC. I ran the 13.1 in 1:58, which I felt good about. I was at the starting line with my friends Lauren & Kevin Gleason... but they were going for it and took off in front of me from the beginning. They finished more than half an hour before me, I was so proud of them. I however was not pushing it at all, just steady to the end. By mile 11 my legs were not feeling good and I was happy it was all down hill to the finish. I could have put a lot more miles on my legs to prep for race day. Today, I am not walking so well, but I think a little yoga will help to stretch me out.
So, after the race was over, Billy & the boys came to pick up Kevin, Lauren & I and take us back to the Gleasons home. I took a quick shower & then we were off to my first appointment with Dr. Ramos! She was so sweet and gave me a big hug when I got there. I got the first ultrasound of my third pregnancy and it looked great. She was so surprised to see how big the baby was already- developed little hands were waving, feet were wiggling. The heart beat was strong and she said I was measuring a week further than I thought I was. So, I'm 13 weeks into it! The boys were all in the room for the ultrasound and William thought it was pretty cool to see the little baby on the computer screen. Zachary just stared.
We are excited to grow our family one more and we are crossing our fingers for a little girl :) Come Christmas time, we will find out and then come May we will have 3 kids!
What a terrific Saturday.


  1. I can't believe you didn't tell me you were pregnant. I found out from mom. I am happy and excited for you. I too hope you have a girl. That would be perfect. :) Love and miss you.

  2. That is so amazing. I have to tell you that I was talking to Kristy and she accidentally let it slip. I think she thought that I already knew. She said to act surprised. ;-) I am so excited for you!

  3. So happy for your family... Love you guys
