Summer's here and so is Emily!
Ahhh! just got home from a nice muggy run, my eyes were burning from the sweat and i felt sluggish from the heat but man is it nice to run outside in the sun! Ready to turn up my training for my triathalons this summer.
Well, I returned home to GR from a week in Cadillac helping out with my new niece and my 2.75 year old nephew. Man, is he a handful! Everyday I spent with him I was exhausted. I'm not a nap taker but boy was I ever last week, every afternoon after he laid down for his nap so did Auntie Jenn. Emily, my niece, is perfect. She's tiny (for a Gable) 8lb 6 oz and a little short really, only 20 inches long. In contrast to her big brother, she sleeps a lot and eats well. Juli said she only woke up once one night and another, she had to wake her up to feed her. I remember Lucas was a crier, he cried often and loudly... but I suppose babies do that. (c: Jules was doing well, looked tired a few days but will get the swing of things I suppose. Lucas did well with Emily, when she was born he kept saying, "Emily's not in mama's belly anymore. She's at the hospital" It was cute. Once they went home, and Joc and I were out playing with Lucas, he'd get angry if you were holding Emily. "Put the baby down!" and I felt bad for Jules one day he was angry with her, woke up from his nap angry at her, even told her so. "I'm mad at you mama!" He'll get used to Emily hanging around, and he'll probably end up loving her quite a bit to play wiht and push around. She just needs to grow up first (c:
Still on the job hunt, I hear all these rumors of openings, retirements and the "shortage of teachers" but no one has called me back. Funny how that works. I'll keep trying.
Doctor's appointment today, work tomorrow then off to California for a wedding weekend. I'm excited to see Kelly and Oliver get hitched in San Fransisco.
I'll add a few shots of miss Emily for those of you without Facebook (Rachael!).
