Chase – Week 3 and Getting Active

Leave a comment

Chase just makes every day that much sweeter. She is changing every day. Between growing and seeing her development changes, it’s just always a surprise to see what is new for her each day.

Week 3 – Milestones:

We took Chase in for a weight check on Friday, July 5th and she is 9 pounds .5 ounces. She is gaining well more than the minimum so breastfeeding is going great!

Also, her active time has really been fun. She has started reaching for things and holding her head up for a time during tummy time. Here’s a video of Chase at 3 weeks. 🙂


I found out that I’m in the banner ad for the Alexian Brothers Half Marathon July 20, 2013. We won’t be going this year, but kinda neat to see my picture there. 🙂 Here is my post about that race.


I was just cleared to start back running so my workouts have now become even more enjoyable. I’m so happy to have the ability to start back into running just 3 weeks postpartum. I started out run/walking and have just recently done my first complete run. It feels amazing to get all sweaty again! My muscles are weak, but it’s nice to feel them working and knowing that they are getting stronger. 🙂

It’s also been fun to get out with Chase, Rob, and Coco. It’s been real good family time. I also got a chance to run with Drew, Rob and Chase after they raced 4th of July Park to Park 5 Mile.
