One day while driving along with the kiddos, we passed two women running together on the sidewalk. Evelyn was all excited and yelled, "Look mommy, cool runner girls like you!!" :)

4 Months!

Evelyn had her 4 month check-up yesterday. She did great! She weighed in at 11lbs -- but she had a HUGE dirty diaper right before they weighed her -- I think she would have been at least 11lbs 2 oz... :) She was measured to be 23 1/4 inches long. The pediatrician was very happy with her progress. She is still only 5-10% for weight -- but at least she is on the chart!! Considering that she started out at 4lbs 13oz, she seems huge now!! Evie is a great eater -- she loves her milk!
Below are some pictures of her progress. I decided to take a picture of her every month with the same teddy bear (a gift brought to the hospital from our friends Sarah and Boris).
One Month:
Two Months:
Three Months:
Four Months:
Not much else going on... I had a GREAT workout tonight! I went to a spinning class at the gym. It felt so nice to work hard and sweat a lot. I used to go to the gym at least 4-5 days a week, but since the little peanut was born, it has been a lot more sporadic. I have a hard time going in the evenings until after Evelyn is asleep. I figure that since I am working and only get a few hours with her every day, I need to take advantage of that time. When I do go to the gym, it isn't until 8 or 9PM -- and there are no classes that late at night. I still do cardio and lift a little -- but I don't always push myself as hard as I do in a class. I think it is because I am pretty competitive. I picture myself in spinning class cycling away and leaving everyone in my dust!! Hahaha!! I swear, working out is like a drug for me. Other people can have their "uppers" and their various vices -- just give me a pair of running shoes and my mp3 player and I am good to go. :)

she's looking cute and healthy. in the last picture she is saying "how come I get my picture taken in the same spot with a sign each month?"

Cute pics! Isn't it amazing how fast it goes by?

It looks like she outsizes the teddy bear now. What a little sweetie!

Impressive on getting to the gym. I know how hard it is with working and everything. I gave up my membership over a year ago because I just wasn't making it often enough. Good job!

What a great idea to take pictures of her with the same teddy bear... I might have to steal that one.

Also - completely agree on the working out... I have been going through workout withdrawl. I can't wait to get back into it... or at least go for a hard run. I am sure I will find it difficult to find time. I used to go in at 5:30 am before work 4-5 times a week. That hasn't happened since December! ha ha!
