First swim!! updated picture of Soren =0 it was raining and Dave is post-call, which means I had plenty of time to get a manicure and pedicure before Dave's Christmas party tonight...both boys are sleeping right now, so I have time to quickly blog before getting in the shower (8 minutes to be exact) =0. 

And.....I found time to SWIM.  Yes, folks it has been SIX months since I swam..June to be exact. I think finally in June I just didn't have the energy to find a maternity "Swim" suit..sure I had a two piece suit, but the one day I tried to wear that and push off the wall, I nearly gave the Miramar Marines a good, I was cheap and decided, no swimming post June.

How'd it go? GREAT actually! I'm sort of the opposite of some people, my form is actually better after taking time off.....when i'm tired and lazy and not motivated-that's when my form, today I just swam a mile----and did some pulls, kicks and straight swims....felt really good. Not particularly fast, but just solid.  My shoulders were aching until the first 400 and then I settled into a rhythm.  YAY!  Now, I just have to figure out a way to incorporate biking again---i'm thinking a spin class tomorrow..depending on how my two glasses of wine sit with me tonight! Ha!  My tolerance is hilarious after being medium sized glass of red wine..I am good to go!!

We have our friends, Kathleen and Ben coming to watch Soren! His first non-family babysitters! Actually---they're practically family....but, anyway, i'm so thrilled he has someone awesome to watch him and I've set up some dinner and hopefully Soren will behave for a few hours!!!   Must go hit shower here are a few Soren pics.....we have stay tuned for more from time to time..he is smiling, coo'ing, holding his head up and all those cute things!!
