Work it, Henry. Work it.
Today is Henryâ€™s newborn photo shoot. I am greatly looking forward to embarrassing him with the nude photographs when he is 18 and headed out to prom. <3
Our photographer brought us some cookies â€“ how awesome is that?
They tasted like almond macaroons. Very light and fluffy.
I grabbed what I could in between Henry photos and family photos (which, of course, included the dogs). Need more subsistence as soon as possible!
For Your Reading Pleasure
Alrightâ€¦ itâ€™s that time again! Time for For Your Reading Pleasure Friday. Like I always say, if thereâ€™s a day and time to goof off on the Interwebs, itâ€™s Friday afternoon.
This article suggests we struggle to remember names because, in fact, we really just donâ€™t care. People who do care (like politicians or teachers) are therefore â€˜betterâ€™ at recalling names. I really suck at remembering names, and I donâ€™t think itâ€™s because I donâ€™t careâ€¦ I just totally blank out when someone says their name. Does anyone else do that? Itâ€™s so embarrassing!
Answers pressing questions like: Do you perform better on a vegan diet? What about protein? And what about protein combining?
This is a great Q&A about how and when to cross train when prepping for a half marathon. I especially like the piece because it discusses which sport is the â€˜bestâ€™ cross trainer for running: cycling or swimming. And guess which one wins? SWIMMING! â€œSwimming is so different from running that it recruits and trains different muscle groups than does running, especially the upper bodyâ€¦ By developing muscular strength and endurance in your upper body, it will help you maintain your running posture and reduce fatigue on long runs. Swimming and cycling are both non-impact sports, which is good, but, cycling emphasizes the leg and hip muscles much like running.â€
Alright. Shameless self-promotion. Guess whoâ€™s book was named one of the 4 Health Books Worth Putting on Your Nightstand by Glamour magazine? Thatâ€™s right! The Healthy Tipping Point book. The three other ones sound fantastic, too.
Not technically an article, but youâ€™ve got to read through this thread on BabyCenter.com. However â€“ be prepared. There are over 1,000 comments describing horrific, hysterical, and boundary stomping examples of what can happen when you let your in-laws or parents into the delivery room. It took me three days to get through them all, so donâ€™t start reading if youâ€™ve got a deadline!
Your turn! Are you bad at remembering names? What about faces? Are you a vegan athlete? Whatâ€™s your favorite type of cross training? And did you have delivery room drama? Spill the dirty deets!
