Can you BELIEVE that it's already November? It feels like yesterday Claire was born in June, and then all of a sudden I blinked, and voila. The holidays are so near. We bought Christmas presents for our nearest & dearest last weekend. My little girl will be 5 months old next week, a number that I just want erase and re-write as 1. I know the passing of time is inevitable, but that doesn't mean I have to like it, and it's around this time every year that things just seem to jump into hyperspeed. Nothing like having a baby to make you really understand how quickly life goes by.
This weekend I'll be running another race, my second since Claire was born, a 10K. I'm lucky enough to have lots of amazing friends (and a pretty rad husband) who agreed to run it with me to keep me motivated. Can't believe I'll be tackling 6 miles before Claire is 6 months old. Other than that, I'll be saying goodbye to some friends who are leaving St. Louis for now - I'll be so sad to see them go but excited to watch them succeed in new endeavours. Never a bad thing to have people to visit!
I hope you all soak up the last of autumn this weekend!
My favorite links from the past few weeks:
I can't stop thinking about this gorgeous diaper bag. Would make a great Christmas gift, right?! (hint, hint)
This made me laugh so hard. Really, I cannot remember.
Are you one of those people who "ghosts" at parties? I have to admit, I totally am.
Instagram vs. Real Life - this is so insanely accurate.
Common grammer mistakes even the smartest of us make - I have to admit, I had no idea of the differences in #6.
Of course, another beautiful essay from Coffee & Crumbs. And please, stop asking parents how their babies are sleeping. It isn't a nice question.
Apparently, "time out" is now a big no no.
