doing his nights

My mother-in-law sent me the fantastic book Bringing up Bébé and I’ve been trying The Pause technique with much success. Last night Baby A “did his night” with almost eight hours straight and I slept only an hour less! After he ate breakfast we dozed side by side then I passed him to my husband and, as my boys exchanged morning grunts, I left the house for a run.
I love being out in the early morning sunshine and grinned ear to ear as I jogged toward a trail. I’ve discovered a few trails in the area by unfortunate accident when I’m pushing the stroller, then need to bump along to the nearest pavement. Today, however, I made it my goal to remain on trails as much as possible. Listening to Zach Brown conjured up happy memories of Albers Trio concerts and traveling in Texas with my sisters. I think that specific trip inspired my Lauratogo blog!
I decided to run off the clock for the sheer pleasure of exercising. Of course I’m so goal oriented I still need to know how long I’m doing what (25 min run, including 2 min walk break in the middle)! My left knee was complaining a little by the end but I suspect this has more to do with crouching down at weird angles to pick up miscellaneous items while balancing baby in one arm than running. I’ll keep an eye on it while exercising and be more mindful around the house too.
I feel like I’m slowly reintegrating elements of my former life into this new wonderful phase!
