Cannon // 6 Month Check In
Over the weekend we celebrated Cannon’s half birthday. Time is flying and Cannon is learning and growing so fast!
He is now 17 lbs 5 oz (46%) and 27 in (67%)
Over the last month we got to run our first Turkey Trot 5k as a family and celebrate Cannon’s first Thanksgiving. While Cannon didn’t get to try any of the food he really seemed to enjoy the run
He can now sit up completely unassisted and rolls both ways. He still can fit into most of his 3-6 month clothes but all his pants are a little short on him so he will be moving to 9 month clothes soon. It does make me sad to pack up his stuff as he out grows it but it’s just so fun to watch him grow.
It has been pretty cold this last month so we haven’t been able to get out on as many walks and runs as I would like but when we do get a chance Cannon loves the snow so much. I may have to learn to ski or snowboard just so I can take him.
Cannon also met Santa for the first time, no tears this year, but I bet we aren’t so lucky next year.
Luckily for me, just in the last week naps seem to be getting a little better. Hopefully this trend will keep going and we will have more of a consistent napper. We continue to be spoiled with overnight sleep between 10-12 hours every night!
We are about to start eating solids after being exclusively breast fed for the last 6 months, I think Cannon is more than ready!
Now we are just waiting for Santa to visit. My heart is exploding with joy over celebrating Christmas with my little family.
Past Monthly Updates:
Weekly Rundown – Run Focus
I haven’t done a Weekly rundown in a while, I am hoping to be more consistent in posting these as training really ramps up for 2017 races, I am SOOOO excited.
I am linking up with Jessie at The Right Fits and Jess Runs ATL to recap last weeks training.
This week was mainly focused on running (more on that in a separate post).
Monday: A quick 2.42 mile run with my favorite little buddy in the running stroller. As much as I love our BOB stroller it is much more of a workout to run with it!
Tuesday: 3 miles on the treadmill with 1 minute tempo intervals, this felt so good! It always helps make the time fly on the treadmill when I have work to do =) After my run I was able to squeeze in some quick core and lower body exercises before nap time was over. In the evening I joined my mom for a swim. It was SOOOOO nice to swim. Cannon has been fighting naps so he is often over tired in the afternoon and a little crabby so getting into a calm, quite pool really helped me find my happy place.
Wednesday: 21 day fix upper body strength workout
Thursday: 2.14 mile run (outside, YAY) and full body strength workout
Friday: It was cold and snowy on Friday and my phone died from cold immediately after taking this picture but the solo miles were so enjoyable. Now that I am a mom I relish my time to get out and run so much more. I am so grateful that Cory is always supportive and happy to take on baby duty (in fact, I think he loves the time alone with Cannon).
Saturday: Saturday was super busy so I jumped on the treadmill for 2.6 miles. I kinda felt awful, it was just one of those days that my legs felt heavy and hard to move, there was lots of walking to warm up and cool down. Somedays are better than others, and I was glad to at least get moving a little. I love watching Ginger Runner films while running. Reminds me that putting in the work now will allow me to enjoy hours on the trails when summer gets here.
Sunday: 7 mile run with both my boys, it’s so nice when we get to run together. It’s such a great time for us to talk while we get some miles in.
Running: 21.3 miles
Swimming: 1200 yds (just once, but I am working on getting a pool I can go to more regularly)
Strength: 3 sessions
As always it’s a work in progress, I am hoping to try some new strength training classes this week, a spin class and get in the pool more if I am lucky!
