Ellah's First Race

As everyone knows, I love to run and I couldn't wait to get Ellah into her first race. So when the Kenai River Run came around, I signed us up. It was a blast and Ellah and Mommy both wore our Nike running clothes, of course. Good thing I had a jogger and that Ellah goes running often because most of the course was on a dirt road, all I could think of was "Never Shake a Baby"....she was fine and she won her age division, she also got her name in the paper. I was so proud.

I finally had to go to Anchorage for the Kidney Biopsy and right now, I am pretty sore. The procedure went really well, thanks to Diazepam but the recovery hasn't been so much fun. But because of the most amazing husband ( in my eyes) he has been helping me out with everything. The worst thing, I can't even lift my own daughter, mostly because she is too heavy, hahaha. I actually am so proud of that. Besides everything...we are living life and loving every minute of being a family.


  1. So happy to hear that things are going well. I was on my knees girl. and will continue to be. I love the picures of her in her little race clothes. Dezmond and I were in the one this past weekend. FUN FUN FUN! he took Third in his age group.... YEH HIM!

    If you are doing well and you are still here. July 18th is the Rotary run. I would love to be with you one last time on the trail before you leave. ;)

  2. Congrats to Ellah and kicking butt in her age group! Also I know how you feel with trying to pick up a heavy little girl while in pain. I have a month to go in the pregnancy and in a lot of pain. Meanwhile Keely is all over me and makes it really hard.

  3. Jerimiah and Michelle, I found you guys through the Gymon's blog. What a cute family you are and Jerimiah you are too young to have a sweet little family.(Well you were just young when we moved to Kenai and when we left everyone stops growing!!) How is your mom doing?

  4. Wondering about the results of the biopsy. (I'm Nosey) call me or drop me a line in email. Just wanting to let you all know that I am thinking about you and praying for His will to be done. : )
