Things are going well at the Atencio-Sloan house.
Sam is busy but he seems to be finding a good balance between work, school, and home. He is doing good in all six of his classes (of course). I think he still really misses cyclocross but he will miss it until he has time to race again.
Elijah and I are enjoying the mellow weather. We have been running, doing yard work, going to the park and Elijah has been getting dirty outside. Elijah is also enjoying watching Cars, I try to let him watch it once a day but the kid loves his Cars.
Elijah has also decided he likes taking showers with me. If I don't let him in, he just gets himself in, clothes and all! I think it is really funny but his shoes take a long time to dry out.
I am feeling really good. I am fifteen weeks pregnant and loving this part. I am still running up to four miles a day. I am not sick anymore and my energy is back up! I have a little bit of a belly but I think Sam and I are the only ones who notice. Elijah thinks he has a baby in his belly too, it is so cute when he points to his belly and says "baby". I can't believe I am going to have two kids!

Elijah watching Cars. This is serious toddler business.

He can't resist the bike.

Elijah wants to know why he can't watch Cars again.

I am so tired of people not knowing how to drive. I went for a three mile run today and I almost got run over three times!!! So here is my thing when you are driving your car and you come to a red light you do not stop at the third white line you stop at the first white line! If you are at a stop sign you stop behind the stop sign and you come to a complete stop look for oncoming traffic and foot traffic and then you drive. You do not drive while talking on your cell phone. If you almost run someone over you do not flip them off when they get frustrated with you. Pedestrians have the right of way on cross walks, this means if a person is crossing the street on a cross walk you have to stop for them. If you live in a city guess what people run, walk and bike a lot!!!! The bike lane is for bikes not for a speeding asshole. If you can not understand this maybe you should get out of your car and walk/bike for a week then you will get it.

Halloween went better than I thought it would. We got Elijah's costume on with only a little bit of a fight, thank goodness Gabrielle was there to give him candy! Once the trick-or-treating got started Elijah got into it. He kept going up to doors and saying "knock". Of course everyone thought he was cute and gave him way too much candy. A block away from home he got a sucker and the night was over! Elijah got what he came for and he was satisfied.
After trick-or-treating Elijah and I met Sam at his Aunt and Uncles house for some food and cookies! Elijah kept everyone entertained (he was on a sugar high).
Four years ago yesterday Sam and I started hanging out!! I feel like it has been so much longer than that! It has been the best four years of my life!
