odds and ends...

I think part of the reason this conversation is so cute to me is the very fact that I can have a conversation with Atticus...my babies are growing up!

Atticus: "Mommy, wats dat?"
Me: "That's my belly button."
A: "Yo belly buddon?"
Me: "Yep."
lifting his shirt and pointing
A: "Wook mommy. Dere's my belly buddon. Wat Dat momma...dat yo boddum?"
Me: "Yes, that's my bottom now get out of the bathroom so I can finish getting dressed!"

--------------------------------------

We did a fit test this morning in at my class and these were my results:

20 modified pullups
63 crunches in 2 mins.
37 modified pushups in 2 mins
lasted 1min. 30 seconds for the 2 min. plank
3 miles in 37mins and 50 seconds(a new personal best, wheeee!)

I have signed up for a half marathon in July, and my goal by then is to be able to do real pushup and pullups! Yea Me!

Thanks everybody! Melanie, I have a retired marine kicking my can every morning. I am actually running the Bryce Canyon half, in Utah. Laurie is planning on running with me, and my brother David might be visiting on a road trip. If he is, he is also running it with me. Any chance you will be in Utah in July? It is a gradual downhill the whole way.

I am so proud of you! I wish I was going to be there... I am actually going to be there the last two weeks in June.... if the half were 2 weeks earlier, I could have arranged to do it with you guys. I wish it would work out:) Sure love you!!! I would love to talk on the phone sometime and catch up.

I know that feeling Meg, I look at my son playing in and out of the house and walking with his mom holding her thumb, brings tears in my eyes just about every time...
you got to love it.
