Life Update: Ginger Baby!

Life Update: Ginger Baby!

At the end of July, my baby boy made his entrance into the world!

JJ Monroe is my new favorite person (sorry not sorry, every other human on the planet!) and he's a joy to be around. I am looking forward to getting to know him better each day! As I do that, I might be posting less here. So please bear with me as I adjust to life with a newborn. :)

One thing I won't be giving up is my passion for the shooting sports. I still want to try to lose weight to fit back into the shooting suit I wore in high school, so that I can shoot air rifle and smallbore rifle competitively. Thankfully the baby weight is mostly gone already and I can pick back up where I left off last summer in my fitness journey. JJ and I have already been walking pretty regularly and eating healthy, balanced meals so we will keep that up! 

I am also planning to continue shooting archery. My husband and I love to spend time together at the range or just in our yard, and shooting is such a stress reliever that we will have to keep it up to stay grounded with a new baby and our continuing home repair project. Speaking of archery...

We love this art quilt made by our friends Karen and Mark. It features a World Archery style target and JJ's name and birthday on the fletching! ("How-To" Gun Girl photo)

 JJ will hopefully join us in some form of target shooting or hunting when he is big enough. I am looking forward to sharing life and the shooting sports with my son.

It’s All About Archery, Baby!
