Boogers and watery eyes did not stop her from smiling yesterday afternoon when I took the picture. But she did have a tough night. She woke up every couple of hours because of a stuffy nose. And had a fever at 3am so Carol gave her some acetaminophen.
I’m totally the one that gave her the cold … It’s one of those mean colds. I hope she’ll feel better tonight…
There it is! The first little white one! Carol discovered it today when Anika bit her finger. Anika just barely turned five months 5 days ago.
We’re now thinking this is why she has been drooling sooo much for a month now. Actually it was much worse about two weeks ago. And she was crying a little more than normal last week.
Anika has grown sooo much it is unbelievable. For a while she’s been able to roll to pick up toys but it used to be hard for her now she does it really quick. And she started picking up her binky when she drops it! And she puts it back in her mouth… This still takes her some time and she sometimes gets frustrated but it is still truly amazing how babies learn so much so quick!
Today I rode the Heber Metric Century Ride with Cody, Nicholle, and Jeff. I had a great time, nothing like a long ride with good friends. The scenery was awesome too, we went through rural roads with a lot of green fields and green mountains with very blue skies. And the leaves started changing colors around Heber so we would also see some bright orange trees in the middle of the mountains.
We rode through some isolated roads which were really smooth to ride. Well, most of them where, there was 2 miles of hard packed dirt road. And since my butt was already hurting a little, those 2 miles definitely wore it out and I was in pain the rest of the way…
I feel like muscle-wise I could have ridden the 100 mile ride (as opposed to the 100km one). But my butt was definitely not ready for the challenge. Humm,,, well and now that I write this, I remember that my knee also began to hurt a bit at mile 40 so I took some Ibuprofen (400mg) and that made things be normal for the remaining 17 miles.
This knee thing means I’m not doing long rides any time soon. I might do 50 milers but no more than that. I’ve been really good with my knee this year. I really have not made it hurt since April’s SLC Marathon. And today doesn’t really count.
I didn’t take any pictures of the ride =(, but I took one of my “farmer’s tan” when I got home:
After the ride we went to grab some food and a couple of beers. Carol and Anika met us there but they would not let them in! It turned out the place was a bar and not a restaurant/bar, so you had to be over 21 to get in. I gotta start thinking about that when we’re out with the little one.
Carol, Anika, and I then went to check out Jonsons Mill, a nice bead and breakfast where we might stay some day. We hung out on the gardens, pond, and stream that goes through it. They had a cool thing with a rope where you could make it spin as you grabbed the rope and flew over a stream, it was pretty cool.
I’m not entirely sure why this was happening but when I used Remote Desktop (RDP) to connect to a remote machine running Windows Server 2008 and Terminal Services, my credentials were not being saved when I told RDP to save them.
They were always saved when I logged into servers running Windows Server 2003. In case you’re wondering my local machine runs Windows 7.
To fix this I did the following:
On the run window or on the start menu’s text box, type “gpedit.msc” (without the double quotes) and then hit enter.
You want to enable AND edit the server list for the following two parameters under “Local Computer Policy > Computer Configuration > Administrative Templates > System > Credentials Delegation”
- Allow Delegating Default Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication
- Allow Delegating Saved Credentials with NTLM-only Server Authentication
You must enable each setting and add “TERMSRV/*” to the server list:
Your credentials should now be saved when you use RDP.
My commute to work is getting chilly, today was my first day wearing full finger gloves. And think I’ll start covering my ears soon.
The sun only hits me in the last mile of my 5 mile bike ride to work.
I’ve thought for the longest time that my commute was 6 miles but I measured it last week and it’s really 5.2 miles.
I’m happy to say that I rode to work 4 to 5 times a week throughout the entire summer. The days that I didn’t ride to work were days that I wanted to use my old Mazda a little, just to make sure it didn’t break since I’ll be using it during my winter commutes.
I’ll continue riding to work until it gets uncomfortably cold. I have at least one month more of riding.
And to end this post with some cuteness, here’s a picture of Anika grocery shopping that I found on my phone while getting the picture above.
Anika is now 4 months old! I’ve been slow at posting so she has actually been 4 months old for almost two weeks now. And along with the 4 month mark comes a visit to the doctor. One cool thing the doctor said was that Anika’s length was in the 90th percentile of US babies. I’m definitely taller than the average Guatemalan but I sort of blend in here in the US. And Carol is not tall so I was expecting something around the 60th percentile. I think it’s cool that she’s looking tall right now, we’ll see how it goes later in life.
The doc also said she is in the 80th percentile weight-wise, but to not worry because most of the weight is because she is a tall baby. I can’t remember how tall or heavy she is right now, Carol’s the one that takes Anika to the doc. (Carol, if you remember, please post this on a comment?)
It was also time for another round of vaccines. She cried less than last time but she got a fever the next day. We gave her acetaminophen and that kept her feeling alright until her body adjusted to the newly introduced viruses.
I recently uploaded two videos of Anika:
