On Saturday Adeline ran in her second Awesome 3000 race. Last year we all ran together as well … me being very pregnant. Did I mention I, being the ever graceful gal that I’ve been all my life, ran smack into a pole and knocked it over with my very pregnant belly? I’m happy to report there were no crashes this year, and so glad of that fact since Eliza would have felt it much more this time around while riding in the Mai Tei. Let me tell you, running a race, no matter how dang short, with POTS and a baby strapped to you is no small feat (here little head was securely pinned to my chest with my hand, so there was no bobbling around during our tiny jog). After the race I told Addie just how proud I was of her and she simply smiled and said, “I’m proud of you too, mommy.” Melts my heart.
Forgive the snapshots … I’m usually much too busy enjoying the moment at things like this to worry about taking perfect photos …
Afterward we were lucky enough to spend the afternoon with some of our favorite people on a little hike down by the river. Nothing in the world like childhood friends, is there? And we’re just lucky enough that we adore Addie’s sweet friends’ parents just as much as she loves those boys.
