Introducing Alexander Louis -
He is two months old now and I feel like I am just now getting my head above water. FYI, babies are HARD work. I wasn't able to even think about Dexter for the first month or so. Now things are settling in and I've gotten to ride a few times. Dexter has picked up right where we left off, maybe even a little better. I on the other hand have completely forgotten how to ride. I fall all over the place. Poor Dexter tries to keep up, he stops or slows down every time I start to loose my balance. It makes for quite an interesting ride.
I've finally realized I won't be able to keep up my normal routine now that I have Alex. I was hoping to find a day care open late enough that would still allow me to ride after work. But reality has struck and a) there are not day cares open that late, and b) I realize that won't leave me much time to spend with Alex in the evening, and before he arrived I didn't really care about that, now I do. I'm thinking I'll have the weekends and maybe one or 2 days a week I can swing it to go out and ride, not exactly the competition schedule I was working on last year (before I got pregnant), but we will have to make it work. I am committed to continue riding as it is the only thing that makes me feel like me.
