Back to back posts as I am watching the Giants (11th inning at the moment)

Katie is officially pregnant. I mean, she was before but I think now she really feels it.

She is due in 2 weeks and we are really excited.

I'm really curious whether it is a boy or girl.

I'm a little nervous for the whole labor thing but pretty sure I can handle it.

Katie has been amazing throughout the entire pregnancy.


Good year.

Just looking at my GPS watch for some running totals and I thought I would pass some along.

Since October:

2 marathons
18- 13+ mile runs
666.34 total miles
Average 7:51 miles
Burned 89,000 calories
Average Heart Rate 168
Total Running Time: 88 hours

I'm moving back to biking and am curious to see how much I can log.

Probably not as much with the baby coming soon (2 weeks!!!)

Soft Serve Baby Update

So I had a request from my beautiful 38 week pregnant wife to go get a ice cream sundae. I jumped at the opportunity because I knew I could get one of my favorite indulgences. Yes, that's right, a McDonald's soft serve. I love these non-ice cream, high fructose, fake vanilla, creamy and delicious $1.00 treat.

The reason I love these so much is back in Martinez we lived around the corner from a McDonalds. Every week we would beg mom and dad to take us to get a soft serve. Luckily for them (and most definitely planned) they were only 39 cents at the time. Oh the good old days.

So here is the rundown on the baby stuff:

1. Baby is due in a few weeks

2. Our last baby birthing class is after the baby is due

3. Hopefully that doesn't cause a problem

4. Katie is feeling great (still working)

5. Cory is excited

6. It's a BOY!!

7. This is a view from the hospital

8. It's a GIRL!!

So it was just over 19 years ago when my only brother was brought into the world. I was playing on the playground at West Park when I heard the news. Since then he has never been anything but an amazing, caring and loving brother.

He said in his latest post "Sometimes I wish I had been an older sibling because I feel like I have missed out on all the good times"

Well I was an older sibling and sometimes I wish I had been closer in age to you little bro. By the time you were in Jamacia (on of your first family memories) I was almost 18 and out of the house. Even with the age difference I know how much you love me and I hope you know that I love you with all my heart. I'm so proud of you and all you have accomplished in your life already. I know the next 2 years will be an amazing and life changing experience for you.

I promise to write and I just might make a guest appearance at Fort Worth Spanish Speaking ward. I even will listen to a discussion but only in Spanish :-).
