Many of you have probably noticed that my blogging has been lighter than usual for the past few months. Well… I’ve been spending some time and energy with this little guy.
It’s the sweet pea, there between the cross hatches. This ultrasound was done a couple of months ago when the little guy was just over 6 weeks old. Now that I’m past the first trimester, I am a little more comfortable sharing all of this, plus it’s becoming obvious!
Brendan and I are elated at this big change in our lives. I think every day of something I’d like him to make in the shop. It’ll be a little while before the Siren push-bike, but a musical mobile made at the Siren shop will surely be beautiful 🙂
My biking hasn’t needed to change much. During the first trimester, they say that you should keep your core temperature and heart rate down so you don’t cook the little guy but other than that and of course you can’t wreck. I’ve definitely reeled it in on the technical stuff but I’ve still been able to do some overnights. The baby has already covered a good number of trails in the area, to include climbing up San Gorgonio and exploring the Idyllwild area extensively.
In the last couple of weeks, the guys have been feeling more fit as I slow down a little. 😉 The tables are turning as my strength to weight ratio isn’t exactly what it used to be. Even though the guys are catching up, I still have a lot of fun shredding for two!
This will add a new dimension to my blog and a new chapter to my life. Last year’s story was about the Tour Divide; this year will be about training and exploring with a Baby on Board. I will continue to share pics of the beautiful places that we explore, but also share insights into this new realm.
