run or dye

Last September the Run or Dye 5K came to Abilene. Even though I knew I would be eight months pregnant, I was so excited about it and couldn't wait to participate. But once it came around I said "forget you" because I was way to sore to even walk a 5k. I was super bummed about having to miss it! So when I found out that Run or Dye was coming back to Abilene I was so excited! Dave and I did the 5K a few weeks ago and I'm so glad we did it!

 Our babysitters were late getting to our house which made us late to the race so we were in the very last group to run so we kind of just took our time signing in and shopping at their little store (holy run-on sentence!). We got our Swag Bag, our retarded huge shirts and runners number. Then we went and joined the "party!" It was so fun! Anyways we started running and literally about ten feet after the starting line one of the volunteers to throw color all over you threw color right in my face! I could not see a thing. I was laughing so hard I was crying and I had to stop and wipe it off just so I could see.  Anyways I think I was everyone's target to throw color at because I was covered from head to toe. Dave thought it was hilarious. I did too until it came time to drive home. My car looked like a bag of Skittles after I sat in it! We finished the race, got some pictures taken and partied some more. We had a blast and I'm so glad we went this time. And I love that Run or Dye was a fundraiser for the Big Brothers Big Sisters Club. We can't wait to do it again!

Presley: 5 months

-Presley graduated into her 6 month clothes! Whaaaaat?! It makes me so sad to see how big she's getting but it's so fun being able to dress her up in some new clothes. I was so over her 3 months outfits!

-She sat up on her own for the first time on my birthday, February 27th! What a great birthday surprise for me! She's getting pretty good at it even though she can only sit for no more than 10 seconds before tumbling over!

-She also stood up for 15 whole seconds on February 16th. I was totally amazed and still am! The girl has wanted to be on her feet since the day she was born.

-She's eating 5-6 ounces every 4-5 hours and she's still not sleeping through the night. She's also boycotted naps and she hates being swaddled! She refuses to be rocked to sleep but she also cries her pretty little head off if I lay her down to fall asleep on her own. I'm at a loss right now. 

-She ate Rice Cereal for the first time on Saturday, March 8th! She loved it and she wanted to help me feed her with every bite (she'll grab the spoon every time it's within an inch of her face). It makes for a very messy feeding!

-She now wears size 2 diapers! Sigh!

-She's been given lots of nicknames. P, P Baby, P Town, Baby Girl, Boo Boo, Princess, Tiny and Kyson calls her Sweetie.

-She thinks it's so fun being upside down! She also loves to be tossed in the air (and by tossed I mean like 6 inches out of our hands!). She loves being tickled, raspberries on her tummy, and Patty Cakes!

-She's learned how to make farting noises(?) with her lips. It kills me! She also likes to stick out her tongue.

Presley is at the funnest age right now! She's extremely clingy but I love holding her so I'm ok with it. She's learned who her mom and dad are because when other people pick her up, she screams! I'm so in love with my baby girl!
