breaking news!

Audrey rolled over -- and twice, so I know it's not a fluke! Not quite as early as her sister, but still pretty close. Stay tuned for video evidence.

a big week

Some good news: thanks to some seriously awesome and generous friends/family, I've been able to raise a little over $1000 for Hear Indiana! If you want to donate, you can do so at my page:

Some not so good: Yesterday we were at the audiologist, and I told her that I'd signed up. She's tall, super thin and fit, and she made a face when I mentioned it. She said something like, "Oh. Wow. Yeah ... I ran that last year, and it was REALLY hard. It's all hills." Hills, you say? This does not sound promising. I went back to the 5k website and noticed they describe the course as "challenging" and "hilly." Is it too late to revert from couch-to-5k to just the couch portion?!

The audiologist retubed Audrey's hearing aid, and it fits SO much better now. Instead of flying over the top of her ear at the slightest movement, it stays where it's supposed to. I think I'll be much more compliant with having her wear it if I'm not having to adjust it every minute.

Audrey found her feet this week, started working on blowing raspberries, and is making a ton of new sounds - she's very chatty. I'm not sure if it has anything to do with her hearing aid or not. They can't do additional testing until she's 6 months old, so we'll just have to observe and see how she does.

Olivia seems to be teething despite supposedly already having her 2-year molars -- lots of drooling/chewing on things, plus a bonus dose of whining for good measure. Tylenol seems to be helping, so hopefully it'll pass quickly. She seems so grown up to me lately. Her sentences are getting even more complex, and she can climb up the slide in the backyard by herself and has also started jumping. She's still a baby in some ways, though: loves her paci and blanket, wants to be rocked every night before bed. I don't mind.

jog for ogg!

I recently started the Couch to 5K program -- more to force myself back into the gym and try to rid my body of this stubborn baby weight than anything else. I wasn't really planning to attempt an actual 5K, but then my brother-in-law heard about the Talk Walk Run 5K in Indianapolis. Proceeds go to Hear Indiana, an organization that provides services to children with hearing loss. Since that topic is near and dear to my heart these days, I decided to go for it. The worst that can happen is that I'll get picked up by the straggler wagon. :P

If you're reading this and want to sponsor me, go to:

Don't feel obligated, of course, but I'd be thrilled with even $5. Donations are tax deductible!

3 months old!

Audrey is 3 months old today! I was going to post and whine about our horrible sleep issues and how tired I am, but I'll save that for tomorrow. ;)
