With Roxas I found myself eagerly awaiting each milestone but with Lucy I feel conflicted. I want her to be healthy and meet her milestones but then that means she is growing up and I want her to stay my itty bitty babe for a little longer. It's the parental paradox.
This was her tongue after the procedure
We had a big first this past month, I ran (well... walked) my first 5k. I finished it just under an hour which for me wasn't too shabby. I pushed both Roxas and Lucy in the double stroller through the whole course. It was a color run so it was meant to be just relaxed and fun which it absolutely was. Roxas had a BLAST with the color powder at the end and Lucy slept the entire time. I've never been one for running, even though I ran track for several years in school. I'm starting to get back into it with the inspiration of a few friends who have totally kicked but at it lately. My goal is to run in the Disneyland 5k next year!
We finally got to meet my best friend, Tashia's, baby boy, Coltin, this past week. Unfortunately it was not under the circumstances I ever wanted to meet him. Tashia's mom, Sherry, passed away on Wednesday morning. My mom and I were on our way up to see her after learning she decided to stop fighting the cervical cancer she had battled for the past 3 years. She was a strong, loving, passionate, hilarious person and I will miss her to no end. She was like a second mom to me and treated me just like another one of her kids. Her passing has placed a huge financial burden on the family, if you scroll down to the bottom of this page you will find a link to a GoFundMe site for "Cure Sherry".

Until Next Time...

Definitely our little blessing!
