My Week(200!!) in iPhone Photos

Monday, September 1st, 2014

200 WEEKS of mostly terrible, blurry, boring photos of the normal stuff we do every day. I have no idea why I’ve kept this up for so long but I’m glad I have. The first week I did it, I was pregnant with Caroline. This week, she went to her first day of real school. Never has 200 weeks seemed so short.

Sunday:

sunday1

Grocery shopping with 3 kids is a pain, but a baby who sleeps the whole time makes it better

sunday2

This haircut cost me $37 – $17 for cut + tip, $20 for the Legos I promised him if he just SAT STILL

sunday3

“This chair is like my THRONE!”

 Monday:

monday1

Making zucchini bread in our pajamas

monday2

That Lego set was totally worth the $20

monday3

He sleeps with his eyes open. NOT CREEPY AT ALL.

Tuesday:

“Mommy, I love love LOVE Baby Lincoln!”

tuesday2

Showing off his kindergarten cubby at orientation

tuesday3

No one wants to hold my hand when Daddy makes an appearance.

Wednesday:

All summer long the kids have been up at 6 am. I took this at 7:10 on Evan’s first day of school.

wednesday2

It’s such a shame she’s so shy and quiet.

wednesday3

Linc agrees that school starting is very exciting.

Thursday:

thursday1

Obviously they’ve got the moves

thursday2

I think her first day was fun?

thursday3

Entertaining ourselves with shadows while we wait (FOREVERRRRRR) for Evan’s bus

I really hope she comes out of her shell at school.

friday2

friday3

Farmer’s Market night gets an A+++++ for food and friends

Saturday:

I spent most of the morning like this. It was lovely.

saturday2

They’ve never met a big, flat field they didn’t want to run across

saturday3

My photography assistant fell asleep on the job. Again.

And there you go, 21 more unremarkable pictures of our life. The only thing that’s going to change in the near future is I’m going to upgrade my iPhone, so maybe my pictures will get slightly better. Although not more interesting. We’re pretty boring, and I’m OK with that.

My Week(199) in iPhone Photos

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Next week will be 200 WEEKS of iPhone photos, which is a lot of weeks. It will also be total chaos, between two different classroom orientations, two different start times, two buses, two schools, my first attempts at lunch-packing, all with a newborn in tow. Don’t be shocked if every photo is of a large Dunkin iced coffee. This week, no coffee, but certainly some questionable food choices.

Sunday:

sunday1

Watching HGTV while the kids destroy the house. This is our default mode.

sunday2

BEBEH SOCKS

sunday3

It took me a minute to figure out “Chief + Mrs. Davis” meant E + me. Formal titles are weird.

Monday:

monday1

Emergency food supplies

monday2

It’s been a very tiring summer

monday3

Hey girl, check out my hot tub

Tuesday:

tuesday1

I’m totally re-in love with baby wearing

tuesday2

THE BEST

tuesday3

Daddy multi-tasking

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Sleepy smiles

wednesday2

I asked her to bring me some diapers

wednesday3

Evening walk

Thursday:

thursday1

Climbing the one bazillion stairs in town hall

thursday2

This is as clean as it gets. I sense a large donation to Goodwill in my future.

thursday3

Everything is awesome…when you have a new Lego set

Friday:

friday1

The Dread Pirate Evan

friday2

Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got…cheesy music and a jingly lion

friday3

Baby Linc wants to know how long before he can have Five Guys

Saturday:

saturday1

That little finger just kills me

saturday2

Baby’s first restaurant! My kids are so New England.

saturday3

Caroline ordered spaghetti and meatballs and ate a REALLY impressive amount

So far my plan to Stay On Top Of Things is going really well, if you don’t count Linc’s first month update and this post both being a day late. The sink is still empty and clean, the toys are still organized and (mostly) off the floor, and I made it to the grocery store to get school lunch supplies. Now we’ll see how long actually MAKING lunch lasts before I start offering money for hot lunch instead.

Even if you have a pretty good baby, they still keep your hands busy a LOT. Which makes blogging and photo editing hard. I have literally a thousand photos to share but will be lucky if I get 10% of them edited and posted in the next 6 months.

I am really, really looking forward to school starting.

Sunday:

sunday1

That is Linc’s “WTF are we doing in New Jersey?” face. Just a rest stop baby, chill.

sunday2

She hearts books

sunday3

There was a BAT IN MY HOUSE. I WAS NOT PLEASED.

Monday:

monday1

Deep end of the big pool!

monday2

This is not an effective way to grocery shop.

monday3

More books!

Tuesday:

tuesday1

I bought that outfit 5 years ago, when it was already too small for Evan, thinking my next baby would wear it. I took the tags off right before I put it on Linc.

tuesday2

New London! Surprisingly scenic!

tuesday3

He’s too cool in his TooQool

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Aunt Carolyn brought him an elephant from Rwanda. The kids thought he needed to sleep with it NOW.

wednesday2

I love when baby stuff shows up in my mailbox. Especially when it’s useful baby stuff.

wednesday3

Up feeding the baby, all I can think is how much my closet needs to be reorganized.

Thursday:

thursday1

They are singing sea shanties.

thursday2

GORGEOUS day at the seaport

thursday3

Aunt Carolyn read A LOT of books

Friday:

friday1

Pensive? She’s going for thoughtful.

friday2

Farmer’s market = 3 year old heaven

friday3

That was my dream car when I was a kid too.

Saturday:

saturday1

He’s going through a Lego phase again

saturday2

Milk drunk

saturday3

I showed her Grease for the first time. It was a hit.

The weather this weekend has been GORGEOUS and I have enjoyed it…from my couch. After more than 5 weeks of house guests/traveling it is really nice to just sit down. Of course, it was really nice to have other people do all the cooking/cleaning/child minding too, but I have to get used to running the house and managing 3 kids at some point. So far they are all still alive. High fives!

I took all three kids to Virginia, since the idea of feeding, bathing and entertaining them by myself was scarier than driving 450 miles alone. My apologies for ALL the lake pictures, but I basically parked myself on the dock and didn’t move for 4 days.

Sunday:

sunday1

Watching “the robot show”

sunday2

That’s MY soccer shirt from when I was a teeny tiny terrible soccer player

Dinner made and delivered by someone else is better than any dinner I can make. Plus WINE.

Caroline says “That is a lady with a gun giving it to another lady”.

2 week check-up

tuesday3

I got my rug! Now I just need a crib and I’ll be almost done.

TOTALLY WORTH THE DRIVE

wednesday3

Wearing out kids + dog

Thursday:

thursday1

Good morning, Sunshine

thursday2

Good morning, Sunshine (literally)

thursday3

Last summer, Caroline REFUSED to get in the water or in any boats. This year she rode on all the things.

Friday:

friday1

We are both very relaxed

friday2

Evan found a friend and they had a GREAT time jumping

friday3

My parents got a boat and a tube. It’s like the WANT to make it as hard as possible to stay away.

Saturday:

saturday1

AND they made breakfast. My parents are the best.

saturday2

Tiny baby rash guard and suit = best

saturday3

S’mores to cap off an awesome vacation

Now I am home. We have freezer meals from a friend for dinner, a house still super clean and organized from my mom’s visit and a busy week planned. I might actually survive as a mom of 3 (and by survive, I mean until school starts, because once school starts ALL THE NAPS WILL BELONG TO ME.)

My Week(196) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

This week features my baby sleeping in various places. Of course, I’d like him to also be sleeping RIGHT NOW but he’s decided that’s no fun anymore. Hashtag here comes the exhaustion.

sunday1

Sleeping in the hospital, looking slightly less yellow than when we went in.

There are THREE CHILDREN in this photo. I grew them all.

I need someone to come over and constantly reassure Caroline she is still adorable.

I haven’t decided what to eat this on, so for now I’m using a spoon.

My no-theme, no-effort nursery now has a theme and some effort (my mom recovered the ottoman)

saturday3

Tippy toes

Linc just stopped moving (he’s still BREATHING, I checked, but he’s not wiggling) so I’m going to hope the 5th feeding in a row worked and he’s finally asleep. Fingers crossed he continues to be an A+ Would Birth Again Excellent Baby.

As a sidenote, I have another sponsored post tomorrow. I know that’s 2 in 2 weeks but I don’t have any more scheduled. It just feels like they’re close together because the only blogging I’m really doing right now is blogging I HAVE to do (I consider my iPhone Photo posts HAVE TOs, because I cannot possibly quit after 195 of them). There will be actual Deep Thoughts and a LOT more pictures soon. Just not now, because sleep.
