Meet Jeremiah

Isn't he adorable?

27/365

Jeremiah is the something "new" I mentioned in yesterday's post.
I got permission from his mom to blog about him.

His mom is a friend of mine and a teacher at Chandler's school. She and her husband found out that the place they were leaving Jeremiah during the day changed their hours of operation so she asked if I would be willing to watch him on Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays.

I obviously said yes. :)

He's a very sweet boy and Riley just loved having him here today.

We need to work on her "quiet voice". I never realized how LOUD she is during the day!! Good grief that girl is noisy!

J: "Riley. Shhhh. We have to be quite. Jeremiah is sleeping."

R: At the top of her lungs, "SHHHHHH!!! BEBE IS SLEEPING" (as she RAN down the hallway past the room where he was sleeping)

I also discovered that the reason he was having a hard time falling asleep this morning was that Riley was going in and "checking on him" every time he made a bit of noise.

"Hey Bebe!"

"No No Bebe"

"HEY!"

Interpreted as, "Hey! I'm trying to watch cartoons! Get away from me!!"


In "training" news:

You're reading this post which means I survived not only the first HORRIBLE day of running, but also tonight's run. *I didn't have to put my head between my knees tonight... that's a step in the right direction!

No picture to post tonight.

There are 2 reasons for that...

1. I'm disappointed in myself. Yesterday I ran 2/3 and walked 1/3. Today I WALKED 2/3 and ran 1/3... It felt like my heart and lungs might explode so I had to walk my last lap instead of running it.

2. I didn't look nearly as cute tonight. Which means it's a really good thing my heart and lungs didn't explode... I would have hated for anyone at the hospital to see me the way I looked. :)
(I'm kidding... sort of!)

No running tomorrow. Wednesdays are our off day. :) Hallelujah!

He is too cute! He even (kinda) looks like a Miles!

He is a bit of a darling isnt he!

I'm not surprised you couldnt do the same run 2/3, walk 1/3 thing as the day before, you would have still been trashed from the day before wouldn't you? I know I'd still be trashed a week later but not everyone is as unfit as me:)

I am the same way. If I haven't been exercising regularly I can never run very well two days in a row. Once you've trained more you'll be able to so don't get discouraged! Stretching before and after I run helps me not be so sore the next day.

I love the pictures of those two together. How cute!

Keeping up with those two might help with your training!! :-)

You are so good to do that running!
