6 month milestone, morning runs, and super January weather....

 We have had unbelievable January weather the last few weeks. 50-60 degree daytime temps which is AWESOME for us, sunny days, and little or no rain. On my weekends off we've been trying to take advantage of the lovely weather by getting outside, hiking, running, and starting our garden! Yes, via the greenhouse that is. In the last two weekend I've started lettuce, microgreens, spinach, broccoli, and cauliflower. Our greenhouse is a nice little oasis of a warm spot in our chilly climate here as even with these nice days, it still stays cold for quite awhile in the mornings.
Forrest and I go on walks and runs and I'm happy I can still push him in the BOB on our morning run. My pace is slow as molassas, but the point is we still get out there! After the run, (walk on other days...) he enjoys a little snack and then tromps around, terrorizing our Turkeys, playing with the dogs, jumping in the dirt pile, and "helping" start our seedlings in the greenhouse. The life of a crazy toddler...
 And on other news, Fultmeyer boy #2 is now 6 months baked! 24 weeks along and I'm starting to feel the familiar tight hip flexors, the wonderful round ligament pain, and the continued amazement at the moving belly. All in all I"m feeling great. I had some fairly consistent Braxton Hicks a week or so a go that I was questioning, but they have not returned and my midwife  is saying everything is measuring up well....including the lovely weight gain and belly size!
 I think I'm going to do a 5K next week, Trinidad to Clam Beach run, complete with a water crossing, sand run, etc. Should be fun and plenty of people walk it if I feel so inclined. 3 miles has been feeling about right lately so we'll see how it goes. I'm amazed at the people that continue to run till their 9th month. How in the heck did it feel comfortable? Pretty crazy how different our bodies can all be during this incubator time...

Well you sure did enough to fit into a whole week! You are a super productive, farming, breading, working out machine! :-)
