Baby Liam

World, meet Liam.

Liam was born two and a half weeks ago to Nate and Kate! He is precious.  :) 


Tonight, we brought over dinner and all stared into his eyes while he got milk drunk.


I even got to feed him! I’ve never held a newborn before, let alone fed one!  He was so good and made me feel like a pro.  🙂


Big Brother Gilbert reminded us all how cute HE is by stealing my napkin. 


We brought over Santa Fe Casserole, a salad, and Christmas cookies.



I went back for seconds of everything.


And had two lovely Christmas cookies.


(Hubs was tired.  I think we both pulled 50 hour work weeks this week. I’m glad its the weekend… oh wait, we have to work at the clinic tomorrow! Bah!)


Let’s see… I did take a break this afternoon to head to Uptown Charlotte for packet pick-up!  I’m running a 5K tomorrow.


I kind of felt like a fraud picking up my Marathon bib when I’ve had to drop down to the 5K… :(  Not that a 5K isn’t awesome.  It’s just not what I paid to do!


However, on a significantly happier note, this is my Solemates race, and through your generous donations, I raised $1,256.00 for Girls on the Run.  So, even though I won’t be rocking out 26.2 miles tomorrow, it’s a very happy occasion.


Oh – and afternoon snack was hummus, almond butter, carrots, and peppermint bark.


To bed I go! It’s race day tomorrow!

    Oh man, if my ovaries started aching looking at those pictures, yours must have been screaming! Was he like a warm cinnabon out of the oven? Too precious.

  • Camille December 10, 2010, 9:49 pm

    ^^I agree with Maura!
    Not to mention that they have a baby AND my favorite kind of dog that I fondly call “melties”… since they look like they are melting.

  • Baking 'n' Books December 10, 2010, 9:49 pm

    Are you kidding me? A 5k is still a run – that’s further than most people! Are those the cookies that you haul out of the freezer -can they be refrozen after being out?

    And I guess your friends don’t mind you taking pictures at their place – must be used to it 🙂

  • Alyssa December 10, 2010, 9:53 pm

    Good luck! Don’t feel bad about doing the 5k instead; you need to do what’s best for you and not what you feel like you should be doing, although it’s easier said than done 😉

  • holly @ couchpotatoathlete December 10, 2010, 9:59 pm

    Liam is such a cutie — and what a nice name for a baby boy!

    I think any race — whether it is a marathon or a 1 mile is a great race — the event itself is empowering and motivating to anyone watching!

    I remember walking for most of my marathon and I still had people tell me “you are so inspiring” — I started to cry so many times!

    • Caitlin December 11, 2010, 1:15 pm

      I love your marathon story.

  • chelsey @ clean eating chelsey December 10, 2010, 10:02 pm

    What a cute baby! My uterus started to ache when I saw that – and I have said that sentence twice today. Oh boy.

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss December 10, 2010, 10:09 pm

    Congratulations to Nate and Kate!! Liam is so cute :):) And don’t feel down about the 5K. Sure, it seems insignificant after marathons..but it’ll still be fun 🙂

  • Mary @ Bites and Bliss December 10, 2010, 10:09 pm

  • Diana @ frontyardfoodie December 10, 2010, 10:14 pm

    Aww, he’s adorable! My little pumpkin is about to be two months and seeing this reminds me of how much he’s grown!!

  • Victoria (District Chocoholic) December 10, 2010, 10:16 pm

    So precious! I’m ready for my friends to start having babies so I can play with them. 🙂

  • Shari December 10, 2010, 10:39 pm

    Oh my gosh, what a sweetie! There is seriously nothing like a baby to make you feel all warm and fuzzy inside is there? One of my friends is having a little girl this April, and I’m so, so excited to meet her 🙂

  • Maryea {Happy Healthy Mama} December 10, 2010, 10:51 pm

    I love peppermint bark!! Good luck in your 5K tomorrow. 🙂

  • Kiran December 10, 2010, 10:52 pm

    Baby Liam is a cutie! I want one 🙂 good luck in rocking your 5K tomorrow 🙂

  • Annalee December 10, 2010, 10:58 pm

    Your afternoon snack —> epitome of balance 🙂
    You got it girl.

  • Katy (The Singing Runner) December 10, 2010, 11:30 pm

    Liam is adorable! 🙂

    I know that you may be a little bummed about having to drop down, but you are still going to ROCK the 5k tomorrow! I foresee a PR! 😉

  • Ashley December 11, 2010, 12:13 am

    Good luck on your race!! You’ll rock it. Liam is so cute.

  • Sana December 11, 2010, 12:39 am

    I am obsessed with babiesss! I could play with them all day long 🙂

  • Michelle (The Runner's Plate) December 11, 2010, 2:13 am

    Good luck tomorrow!!

  • Kate (What Kate is Cooking) December 11, 2010, 2:17 am

    You will do awesome at the 5k! You made the right decision- your body will thank you. Good luck!

  • Bea December 11, 2010, 2:39 am

    Liam is so adorable.

    Don’t feel down about the 5k, i am sure you are going to rock it tomorrow.

  • Wei-Wei December 11, 2010, 3:57 am

    OH MY GOD I won’t lie, I was stupidly shocked when I saw that: “SHE WAS PREGNANT?” …heh. I’m blonde sometimes. He is so cute though!

    (I’m not gonna lie, the baby talk that’s been going around is creeping me out. I’m 15! O_O)

    • m December 11, 2010, 7:36 am

      I wish you could like a comment. :laughs:

    • Caitlin December 11, 2010, 1:14 pm

      Hahah but I’m 26! I am so ready for bebes.

  • Jen December 11, 2010, 5:45 am

    Ahhh Liam is the cutest! Go make babies.

  • m December 11, 2010, 7:35 am

    Husband is SO handsome! Your babies are going to be just beautiful.

    • Caitlin December 11, 2010, 1:14 pm

      Thank you 🙂 I hope so.

  • Little Bookworm December 11, 2010, 7:43 am

    Good luck in the race today!

  • christina cadden December 11, 2010, 8:05 am

    Good luck on your race!

  • Kath December 11, 2010, 8:21 am

    OMG!!!!!!! So exciting. I want to drive ot Charlotte to see him !

  • Chelsea @ One Healthy Munchkin December 11, 2010, 8:32 am

    Just think of it as by doing the 5K tomorrow, you’re allowing yourself to be able to do marathons in the future. It would suck to injure yourself and not ever be able to do a marathon again!

    • Caitlin December 11, 2010, 1:13 pm

      True that.

  • Marina December 11, 2010, 8:46 am

    What a cute baby. Gosh, I love them 😀
    Good luck with the race!

  • Tina @ Faith Fitness Fun December 11, 2010, 9:09 am

    This makes me so excited that I will hopefully be meeting my little man sometime in the next month. 😀

  • Jess@atasteofconfidence December 11, 2010, 9:37 am

    He is so cute! Have a good race!

  • Kelli December 11, 2010, 10:22 am

    What a cute dog and baby! :)What kind of dog is that?

    • Caitlin December 11, 2010, 1:13 pm

      He is a terrier / chow chow mix. 🙂

  • Stacy @ Every Little Thing December 11, 2010, 10:39 am

    Yay for Girls on the Run!!

  • Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) December 11, 2010, 11:54 am

    Good luck today on the run! Liam is so cute! I love baby cuddles!

  • Natalia - a side of simple December 11, 2010, 12:39 pm

    I can’t believe you’ve never held a newborn before! Oh my goodness, Caitlin, you’ve been missing out. Have a great run!

  • Stephanie @ The Travelling Tastebuds December 11, 2010, 12:40 pm

    Liam is such a cute baby!!! btw… I admire that you love running so much… I wish I were the same!!! Alas… I think I enjoy eating as much as you enjoy running… not so good for the waistline 😉 If you have any tips on making running “fun”… let me know!!!

    • Caitlin December 11, 2010, 1:13 pm

      Sign up for a race!!

  • Amber K December 11, 2010, 12:45 pm

    What an incredibly precious baby boy. I have gotten to hold and feed my nieces and nephews when they were that tiny. Well, one of my nephews was a big baby. But my best friend’s twins were early and were sooo little. My husband and I’ll just keep trying, because we definitely want to be parents!

  • Katie December 11, 2010, 6:41 pm

    Your boy hubby looks stressed. He never smiles in his photos. 🙁 Hang in there with setting up the business!

    • Caitlin December 11, 2010, 8:00 pm

      Its just his British dry wit!

    • Caitlin December 11, 2010, 8:00 pm

      Its just his British dry wit!

  • Kim @ Kim Lives Healthy December 11, 2010, 8:46 pm

    What a cute baby! I think we’re all excited about seeing more of those type of pics on your blog in the future 🙂 hehe

  • Lili December 12, 2010, 3:53 am

    I made this casserole tonight! Didn’t have green peper. I just used some steamed leftover brocolli instead and sprinkled the top with bread crumble. Very good thanks for sharing 🙂

  • Laura December 12, 2010, 12:10 pm

    He is so adorable!

  • Verna December 12, 2010, 6:44 pm

    What an adorable baby! My ovaries are aching!!!

  • Lacey @ Lake Life December 12, 2010, 10:51 pm

    1st, they should have named the baby “Tate” heehee. 2nd, lol @ “milk drunk” and third, the Hus looks absolutely thrilled.

  • AnnMarie December 15, 2010, 2:09 am

    Why is your hummus green? It looks yummy. Do you have a recipe for it?

    • Caitlin December 15, 2010, 10:14 am

      Its spinach hummus and its from a company called Roots – not homemade, unfortunately!

  • Cortney Bangel December 21, 2010, 9:43 pm

    Tried to make the casserole tonight but I don’t think I used the right size dish because it’s going on 35 minutes and still not firm. Was I supposed to use a 9×13 dish? Also, at what point do you add the onion and garlic to the whole thing? Are you supposed to mix it into the rice/cheese/pepper and then put it in the casserole? Thanks!!

    • Caitlin December 21, 2010, 10:29 pm

      Yup suppose to use a larger dish, just cook about 20 minutes longer!

      and yes to onions and garlic

      it will be good dont worry!
