14 weeks 5 days

A month or so ago my mom got excited and bought a bunch of new baby outfits for Besido. Now you may be we know Besido's gender, or did my mom just buy gender-neutral clothing? Oh, neither. She bought outfits in both genders, so Besido would have a few outfits no matter what. :) Haha she's funny.

So here they are (she sent me pictures; I haven't seen them in person yet):

Pretty cute, huh? I like the girl's one with cherries the best. :) Although those little boy's overalls with the matching hat are pretty adorable, too!
Thanks, Mom!

On another note, this week marks the end of my ability to go running. I'm pretty sad about this, and I figure the pups are going to be, too, since I always take them with me. Over the past month or so, I've been mostly doing the elliptical machine at the apartment gym because it's been far too hot to run outside. This past week cooled down, so I thought it'd be nice to take the dogs for a jog. However, when I went for my usual mile-and-a-half stroll around the area, things felt a bit different from normal. I felt like I was dragging 50 lb weights on each of my ankles. My legs started burning halfway through...usually they barely burn at all. My body seemed to be moving at the pace of about .2 mph. And within an hour after the run, I had aches and pains in my knees, my hips, my back, and my leg muscles. I was like, well, guess that's the end of that. Goodbye running until next spring (at the earliest). :(

So...elliptical it will be from now on. Now I'm on the search for an elliptical to buy off of Craigslist, because I won't have the apartment gym to use once we move to our house in two weeks. So if you're aware of a good elliptical for under $200, let me know. :)


  1. Super nice of your mom! Wait until you start will happen. I tried my best not to...
