3.TwentyThree.20Eleven

The endurance challenge continues!  With Max working very hard in his IM triathlon training and Molly making the best of her growing body (and baby)!

It has been awhile since either of us have posted a blog update, so we are tag-teaming this one.

Baby's Profile Week 23

Baby's Profile Week 23

On the baby front… We are now in Week 25 and the “babe” has grown to the size of a rutabaga.  What every that is?!  Okay… it is a large yellow turnip type root.  But I guess it may be close to 13 inches long and weighs about a pound and half (yes??).  Two (2) weeks ago, we went in for another ultrasound (previous one was six (6) weeks ago) and everything seems to be progressing well as all of the measurements were within the normal ranges.  And supposedly the gender of the “babe” still remains a secret, even to the doctors!  We will have one more ultrasound in about a month… we’ll see if we can get through that appointment without seeing or not seeing something.  Of course… if we continue to get the same kind of photos from the ultrasound there shouldn’t be a problem.  Can you really see feet in the week 23 photo?!

Although Molly’s belly continues to grow making her feel sluggish, she remains active via swimming, spin class, walking & prenatal yoga.  In the past few weeks, we have “transformed” our office into an office/nursery and erected a crib and dresser/changing table.  We also did some cursory investigation into day care providers.  Oh man… why does it pain us so much already to have to consider daycare?

On the IM AZ front… Max has had a couple sound months of training.  As the weather warms, Max is excited to take his cycling and running outdoors.  In a little over a month (Sunday, May 2nd), Mile High Multisport’s Open Water Swimming will open at Grant Ranch, so he will take some of his swimming outdoors as well!  As for upcoming races, Max will be taking to the trails around Boulder for the Boulder Spring Half Marathon this weekend.  He will then be running the GO! St Louis Half Marathon as various members of his family will be participating in weekend events (5K Walk, Half Marathon, Marathon Relay, etc.).  And thankfully after a difficult registration, in mid-April, the Karen Hornbostel Memorial Time Trial (TT) series will start up on Wednesday evenings at Cherry Creek State Park.  Max’s Lightspeed and disc wheel are tuned and ready to go.  Racing season is upon us!!

Our Stats:

Molly is finding it harder and harder to be clever about her statistics.  I guess the most noteworthy commentary would be that Molly has now over taken Max and moved into the “heavy weight” category.  We’ll see if Max can hang on as a contender in this endurance challenge of mind and body!

  1. Molly, be glad that you are building a excellent nest for your precious child, knowing how well you take care of your body it will return to the pre-baby shape, and Annie can help you with that if you have a hard time. Another good way is nursing even for awhile because I think it takes 2000 calories to make milk a day. Even if you pump milk to freeze. That’s a lot to think about I know.
    It is fun though to feel the little one bumping you from inside, the wonder of it all. Of course to live in the moment when your body is stretching to kingdom come its better to look to the future. BE WELL all 3 of you. Love your aunt TRINA

  2. m+m+rutabaga = lots of love!!!
    So excited for all three (3) of you – and think all of the photos look fantastic. THANK YOU for sharing this special time with us! Love, Stacy, Lee & Cole Z
