It’s been almost 3 months since I was born and I have really grown up! I was so tiny (only 4lbs. 9 oz.) and now am almost 9 1/2 pounds and have already grown a few inches. I know most of you would be upset if you had doubled your weight, but for me it is a great milestone.
I am feeling very well as Mom & Dad and the doctors are figuring out my acid reflux and soy / dairy allergy. It is kind of a pain for Mom not to eat soy and dairy but this way I hopefully won’t have an allergy to them as I get older. Mom is just lucky that she hasn’t also had to eliminate wheat, eggs, citrus fruits, nuts, fish and berries – I’m not sure what she (and I) would live off of. I just tell Mom that this is the best thing for me right now and that’s all that really matters!
Mom and Dad have already taken me to do a lot of great things – Crested Butte for a weekend with the Bodenhemiers, Vail, Virginia, running races, hikes and the hot springs pool! I have really enjoyed travelling and have even behaved well for all of my trips in the car or plane. I figure that if I behave well, then Mom and Dad will take me lots of places. So far, the hot springs pool has been my favorite. I absolutely loved hanging out and floating in the warm water. Unfortuately Dad didn’t get to come with us so hopefully he and I can go again very soon!
Mom has been trying to get back in shape after being pregnant with me so she has been running in some trail races in the area. She’s definitely not as fast as she used to be but we have lots of fun running together while whe pushes me in the jogger and then Daddy and I go to chear her on at the races. We’re headed out first thing tomorrow for another in Aspen so we hope it goes well.
I promise to keep you all posted with all my developments and accomplishments. Thanks for loving me!

Look how scrawny I was!
