* Noelle had her first public temper tantrum. Thankfully, the Lord was giving me an extra portion of grace that day because instead of just getting frustrated (which I was), I couldn't help but find it humorous. We were out grabbing just three things from the grocery store, so I strapped Jonah into the ergo and figured Noelle could walk for the 5 minutes we would be there.

* Jonah has been quite the fuss bucket for the last 6 weeks or so, and a friend suggested I try going dairy free just to see if that would help him. At just two days in, I had already unknowingly consumed dairy. But I'm trying to keep going and am using Pinterest to search for dairy free recipes. And googling everything! This has led to getting information on the Whole30 and Paleo diets. I figure if I use recipes from those, I'll be good.
The big thing for going dairy free was giving up my little bit of coffee in my creamer. And my favorite Starbucks drink. But no worries, I googled it, and as long as I order a soy mocha, it's still dairy free. Just costs me close to $5! And I really miss my chocolate!
* Running is really important to me and gives me some alone time where I'm not attached to a child. On July 19th, I ran 6 miles- the furthest I've run since having Jonah, and the furthest I've gone since March. I started off feeling like I was not going to make it very far, but felt pretty good by the end. It wasn't fast and it wasn't pretty, but it feels so good to be building up my runs!
