So what's the big deal?
Well, I wouldn't say BIG--he was actuallly quite small. 6lbs, 10oz small in fact.
On March 6, 2017, Peter and I welcomed our first child and my future running partner, Cooper James.
He's happy, healthy, and a handful. All things little boys should be, right? Parenting is completely different than anything I've ever done in my life. Much harder than I could have imagined and requires a lot of patience, a lot of initial life changes, and lots of love. More love than I think I ever thought possible.
I'll do a recap at some point of my pregnancy and birth story, both of which were not nearly as bad as the horror stories I've heard. But I guess that's what happens when you don't know you're pregnant until 13 weeks in. Ha.
So, there you have it. It's crazy how much your life can change during the course of a year, huh? I now feel like it's the right time to reopen this space and begin documenting my life again. I've got big goals for myself--mom goals, fitness goals, running goals... and I need a place where I can come and hold myself accountable again. I want to be the best person and MOM (a month and a half in and still weird to say!) I can be.
Here's to being back. Let's chat again soon?
