Happy Friday everybody! Its hard to believe that its already the end of February and that Monday is Leap Day. Anybody know somebody who is a Leap Day baby? I do – my godmother’s youngest son was born on Leap Day so its always fun every four years when he gets to celebrate his birthday on his actual birthday.
Its been a busy, but exciting week, at our house, so I thought it would be fun to share some of the week’s highlights for this week’s Friday Five post.
1. As of Monday, I’m officially registered for the ZOOMA Annapolis Half Marathon. When I first started training for ZOOMA Annapolis, I shared that part of my reasoning in choosing this particular race was because of the ability to drop down to the 10k if needed. My running over the past five weeks has gone better than I expected, so I went ahead and committed to the half marathon. (And do you want to join me for ZOOMA Annapolis, or do you want to run ZOOMA Cape Cod or ZOOMA Florida? Use discount code KATHRYN16 to save 10 percent off your race registration.)2. Little man turned two months old on Tuesday! We found out at Tuesday’s doctor’s appointment that he weighed 12 lbs 0 oz, so he’s gained just shy of five pounds since he was born. He’s getting so big so quickly!
3. Speaking of little man, I’ve been thoroughly enjoying my cuddle time with him this week. The other day, he had his arm tightly wrapped around my waist while he was napping on my chest. It was so sweet, and looking at his arm and feeling it around my waist just melted my heart.

4. I was happy to see Roberto Hernandez become the winner of this season’s The Biggest Loser during Monday’s season finale (well, I watched it on Tuesday because this mommy was too tired to stay up Monday night). I was a huge fan of Roberto and his twin brother, Luis, during this past season. Their story touched me from day one, and I was very pleased to not only see Roberto win the grand prize, but to also see Luis win the at home prize.
5. Little man has been getting stronger each and every day. I was amazed during tummy time on Wednesday to see just how strong he’s becoming. Look at him doing his little push up! My army veteran husband was very pleased with his push up form!
QOTD: Do you watch The Biggest Loser? What were your thoughts on the season finale?
