I took fewer pictures (200 compared to my usual 400) this week, especially when we were out and about. I don’t think that number will ever be zero – these posts are too important to me, since I can literally look back on every day of Caroline’s life so far – but I’m learning the difference between capturing a moment and capturing every second of the day.
The Magical Fort of Healing
The plan was to take beautiful family photos for a friend in front of this fountain. It was off and some sort of carnival was happening around it. Photo fail.
Getting a jump start on some holiday knitting
But Mommy, how can Caroline take a nap without her dolly??????
My son’s pedicure is in better shape than mine.
When you’re trying to keep a child quiet, you read them the same book every time they ask, even if you’re two seconds from losing your mind.
Because doesn’t everyone carry a cow and an elephant around with them?
NOM NOM NOM ON YOUR FACE
Well sure, Mom, you almost lost your sanity making me that Tinkerbell dress but this old sheep outfit I found in the dress up box makes a MUCH better Halloween costume!
Mommy-Caroline time at the grocery store seems like a VACATION compared to bringing 2 kids.
Obviously taking the orders to keep quiet very seriously.
Beautiful night for an evening walk
Yo, duck, sup?
DEAR GRANDMA AND GRANDPA, THANKS FOR THE GIANT COOKIES! LOVE, TWO EXTREMELY SUGARED UP CHILDREN
Ermagerd! Fresh Beat Band!
This game is called “Someone is going to end up in tears so KNOCK IT OFF”
And this game is called “Let Mom think we’re being good so she’ll turn her back for 5 minutes”
We’re trying to have quiet time today (so far it’s at about a 30% success rate) with a nice nature walk this afternoon to celebrate the first day of fall and to find some pinecones (the internet LOVES pinecones). I’m also going to attempt to take a shower, if I can remember how. It’s been a while. It’s not pretty. Wish me luck.
