Introducing the Newest Cragbaby!

Introducing the Newest Cragbaby!

Our family was delighted to welcome Baby Z to this world on Sunday, March 2, at 3:08 pm.  That day also happened to be me and the Crag-Daddy’s 12 year anniversary – so what special and unique way to celebrate!    Labor and delivery went smoothly without complication, and we were able to bring her home yesterday morning. At only 5 pounds, 12 ounces, our sweet girl is just a little peanut, but she’s just bursting with life, and our hearts are overflowing with love at our little miracle.       That being said, while I’ve got some blog…Read the rest of this entry →

Third Trimester Update: (Weeks 33-38!)

Third Trimester Update: (Weeks 33-38!)

Woo-hoo, any day now!  The nursery is (mostly) ready, there’s a few meals in the freezer, and I am certainly tired of being pregnant…so baby Z, the ball’s in your court now!  Here’s the skinny (that’s a joke since I am definitely large as a barge at this point ;)) on how exercise has been going lately…(previous updates found here, here, here, and here.) Week 33:  This has been a surprisingly strong week.  I cranked out a hard route at the gym after just a couple of tries and beta refinement.  Then on Monday we spent a day craggin’ at…Read the rest of this entry →

Pregnancy Workouts for Rock Climbers

Pregnancy Workouts for Rock Climbers

Although many women are capable of climbing all the way through their pregnancy, I’ll give a million dollars to the one who didn’t have to change her routine in at least some way (that was an exaggeration by the way…there’s not a giveaway widget at the end of this post ).   Climbing while pregnant takes on a totally different mindset and end goal than pre-preggo crushing.  The following is a list of workout ideas geared toward climbers that will hopefully keep not just a mama-to-be strong, happy, and healthy, but also increase the likelihood that the bun in her…Read the rest of this entry →

Rocky Face Park (Again…This Time 35 Weeks Preggo)

Rocky Face Park (Again…This Time 35 Weeks Preggo)

It was Rocky Face, Round 4 for our family this past weekend.  This little quarry crag has become our local hangout of late.  Even though it’s a farther drive than other local crags, the zero approach factor is quite appealing at this point in my pregnancy.  Add that to the fact that it bakes in the sun and even has routes easy enough for my 3 year old to enjoy, and it’s the perfect winter destination for our family right now!   After one trip to get our bearings, and another two trips to tick off the classics on the…Read the rest of this entry →

Mountain Mama Review Collage – 3rd Trimester

Mountain Mama Review Collage – 3rd Trimester

At 24 weeks I reviewed my collection of Mountain Mama threads that had so generously been provided to me by Teresa Delfin and her awesome niche company.  As promised, I’ve written an updated version now that I’m in the latter stages of pregnancy.  Also reviewed are some new clothing items that I hadn’t received yet at the time of my 2nd trimester review.   Update from 2nd Trimester Threads:  (For a more thorough description of each piece, check out the 2nd trimester review here) Tenaya V-Neck Eco Tee and Anya Performance Tee – These tees have both grown with me over the past…Read the rest of this entry →
