Lots of Caro pics!

We took these last night. Caroline's having a great time in her little room; she really makes full use of the space now as you'll see below...

"I'm so glad to be home in my little room and to NOT be at church!"  (Lately, she has been a MAD bean at church - as soon as we put her in her car seat to go home, she is happy and stays that way for the rest of the day.  She's our little problem child : )

Resting her legs.

She moved to this position on her own after the other pics above were taken

"Who me?"

I'm trying to get Caro to smile; she usually smiles w/clapping but not last night.

Here, she was trying to wriggle free from my lap.

"Whatever, Mom, I'm a big girl and want to go back to playing."

Caroline had a procedure done in the hospital (because she had to be sedated) last week to more throughly test her hearing; it tested conductive hearing as well as other.  Unfortunately, it showed that her right ear did not respond to sound at all - we've always known that her right ear does not hear as well as the left, but we haven't heard before that it is a "dead ear" 
(a direct quote from the audiologist - can anyone tell these people that tact is important???).  We're still hoping to get more answers... It's frustrating news, but not a tragedy yet - she still has some moderate hearing in her left ear.

Here are some pics of Caro before the surgery - she's a cutey no matter what she's wearing:

Adorable Caro

We were in California last week and went to a fun bday party for our friend's daughter. Cassaundra, the mother, is a WONDERFUL photographer, and she took a couple pics of Caroline that just made my heart melt. I hope you enjoy them as much as I did!

Little and Daddy

We were outside for the party and our Little doesn't like being outside (not a fan of sun in her eyes and wind), but she was a very good-sport girl for the party!

Happy Birthday Erika!

Wishing you the best on your special day!

Run, Don't Walk

Monday, March 9, 2009

So, I've been keeping a secret from you, my blogging friends.  

For the last couple months, I've been training to run a 5k with a group of young moms in Vegas.  I've practiced 4-5 days a week, including going on a group run every Saturday morning.  Now let me tell you, I've NEVER been a runner - in fact, I thought it was an awful activity - planned torture...  However, gradually, I actually have started to be able to do it.  I started out slowly - the first week I did 60 seconds of jogging and 90 seconds of walking, switching off, for 20 minutes and from there gradually added more running and less walking.  I didn't post about this before because I didn't want to jinx it.

Anyway, last Saturday, we had our big race - a 5k through downtown Las Vegas.  My only goal was to run the whole thing w/o stopping to walk - and I did that and more - I finished w/a time of 31:25! Hooray!  I'm proof that just about anyone can take up running if they're just willing to give it a shot.

Me, my friend Annie, our trainer Lindsey Sheer, and another friend Alison before the race...
