Andy's First Graduation!

Well, it's official, Andy has had his first graduation. Today we officially graduated from the Lactation Support Group at Texas Woman's Hospital.  Andy and I have been going every Monday since he was 4 days old. The group is for new mom's and babies up to 6 weeks past their due date. It's a great group to help breastfeeding mom's figure out what the heck they are doing!

Most moms only go for 6 weeks, but since little Roo was 4 weeks early, they let me hang around a few more weeks. The group really was a god send for me, and I highly recommend it for anyone that delivers at Women's and wants to breastfeed. I surely would have quit about 4 days in without it!

Another great thing to come out of the group is a bunch of great new mom's that I have met! There are about 7 or 8 of us that still try to get together on Monday's for lunch and a stroller date (Remember, most of them graduated at least 3 weeks ago!).  So Little Roo has a few friends right around his age, and even a birthday twin, Elijah that was born the same day as him! Today we ate at Black Walnut Cafe and walked the trail around Rice Stadium. Next week we plan on being ambitious and hitting up memorial park.

Speaking of Memorial Park, I'm back on my half marathon mission. I am set to do the My Fit Foods Woodlands Half Marathon in March, and I started training on Saturday. I went to Memorial Park at 7am (so early when Roo and I are used to hanging out in bed until 8 or 9ish) and ran 3 miles. OH. MY. GOODNESS. am I out of shape! I was limping around so bad all afternoon and all day yesterday! Hopefully it won't take too long to get back into decent shape to where I won't be so miserable after a long run!

It was brought to my attention that I am not posting enough blogs, so I apologize to my stalker... I will try to post more often! I will also try to get more pics of The Roo up... I have lost the cord to my camera, so as soon as I find it there is a whole boatload of pics to share!

Gig 'em!
