Evolution of a Bump

20130307-231824.jpg

Time is flying! How is it already March, and the second half of pregnancy? The little man is making his presence known, both externally with the bump, and internally, as he rumbles and pokes me from the inside-out. Even Garrett has been able to feel him a few times, which is so much fun for both of us!

At 22 weeks, I have gained 15 pounds which is right on target according to the growing stack of books I’m reading. I have to remind myself to account for the additional pounds in the gym, and not go for the second kettle bell or heavier medicine ball when doing things like lunges and planks. (Or else my big muscles pay for it, like I am after yesterday’s workout!) I’m also starting to perfect the roll-out-of-bed technique that will certainly come in handy in future months and keeps G entertained in the meantime. Smiles all around at this point (and for my fun new haircut)!

You Were Here Today…

20130210-224959.jpg

Dear Tiny Teague,
Today we walked the front nine at Pebble Beach Golf Links with the eventual champion (Brandt Snedeker). We probably would have kept going, but you got hungry. We’re going to have to work on your golf endurance, but nine holes is a good start when you’ve only existed for nearly five months.

Winter Wonderland

20121226-083343.jpg
Woke up to a beautiful winter wonderland scene at the Ranch in Prineville, Oregon. If yesterday was all about the White Christmas, today will be a play day with the Beyer family…just as soon as we find snow pants for Garrett!

{postscript} This post didn’t publish earlier today, so I can now report that we used the new *backyard* as our sledding playground for several hours, and plan to do more tomorrow. Photos to come!

Merry Christmas (and Boxing Day!) from the Teagues.

A Night at the Ball Park

20120821-221207.jpg

Crossed CitiField off my (very large) list of MLB ball parks to visit, with work friends Colin & Tom (huge Mets fans!), thanks to colleagues at The Barclays. Great night, despite the score. Even enjoyed gluten free sausage dog & Redbridge beers…topped off with a non-GF cannoli (so worthy).

Sunday I celebrated 28 years in my wonderful little life. My closest friends in Jax, who I refer to as my “Jax Family”, surprised me with a Sunday Funday at the Lee’s cottage. It was the best kind of birthday-day I could have asked for in Jax…other than the massive thunderstorm that dampened the boat plans! But, like it says…We do fun here!

Pentagon Visit

20120629-114427.jpg

There is really only one place photos are allowed at the Pentagon, and that’s in the Chapel. Learned (and saw) that & more in my one-hour tour from U.S. Army Major David Spanton early this morning before leaving DC.
