20 days

It's been 20 days since I've written on here.  I've decided to spend less time on the computer when I'm home and spend that time on the floor playing with Lucas. Speaking of the little monster, he just woke up. He is so much fun. He loves to run around and yell at the top of his lungs. We have a play pen set up and he'll just walk/almost run in circles. He is just so proud of himself with every new thing he does. Lucas goes to the dr on Tuesday for his 15 month check up. I can't believe little dude is 15m. How quickly the past 15m have gone by!

On Wednesday and Thursday I'm going to RTS training with my friend, Melissa. Her daughter, Colby, was born a few days before Aidan and passed away a couple of weeks after Aidan. She was diagnosed with Trisomy 18 when Melissa was around 12w pregnant with her. The RTS training is so that Melissa and I can start volunteering at our hospital. We will be able to bedside with parents during their difficult time of losing their baby. I'm planning on volunteering to help with NICU losses. If this is "my reason" for losing Aidan, I need to hold on tight as this is a sign from him. I know it's going to be hard, but I'm very excited for this.

I started weight watchers a few weeks ago. So far I'm down 5lbs and a few inches. I'm feeling amazing! I also started the couch 2 5k running program. I have a goal of running the Run4Everett 5k. I'm almost done with week 2 and I can already feel stronger in my running. I just want to be healthy for Lucas. I want to teach him to eat properly and exercise. I want to lead by example.

I love you Aidan Christopher and Lucas Alexander
