My Week(237) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, May 17th, 2015

The themes of this week are: Front Porch and Sleeping Baby. Those are sometimes related but not always. I’ve leveled up in babywearing this week too, with MULTIPLE back wrap naps.

Sunday:

sunday1

Cream Cheese Face

sunday2

The same cheese face, but with less cheese

sunday3

I don’t know why he looks surprised, we were at Target

Linc was sleeping so we hung out in the car while Caroline had soccer. I felt like a bum but SLEEPING BABY.

Chatting with mom friends on the porch is boring for babies

He was showing her the school because she’ll go there next year too

The coolness of the sleeping baby is ruined by the arm in the sunglass reflection

Saturday:

saturday1

Linc is not the step-and-repeat expert Caroline is yet.

saturday2

This is not a very good picture but I love it so, so much. They’re closing the FAO Schwarz in New York and I’m so excited the kids got to visit.

saturday3

New York wore him OUT

I have a severe case of the End Of Year Moms and almost no motivation to do anything besides take the kids fun places and drink iced coffees. I’m fighting hard to make it to June before I start letting the kids skip to go to the beach just because it’s too hot to sit on the couch with a baby on me. We have a lot of summer fun planned and I’m afraid we won’t have time for all the un-planned fun as well. This past weekend in NYC was a good start but we have a LOT more to do.

My Week(227) in iPhone Photos

Monday, March 9th, 2015

I completely forgot to do this yesterday. I wasn’t too busy or anything, I just totally forgot. That might be the first time in 227 weeks.

Sunday:

You can only tell this is the “before” because my roots are greasy. The after is the same, just cleaner.

Sweaty baby head looks VERY GINGERY

Wine and a heating pad for my horrible sinus pain. Neither helped.

You can tell the weather is warming up because she moved from sleeping right next to the electric heater to the sunshine spot

saturday2

Caroline wants to take off her coat (it was like, 34 degrees)

saturday3

Birthday party crazy

I think I am allergic to March, because everything is still so frozen and snow-covered there’s no way this crazy sinus pain is related to actual allergies. There’s no pollen yet! Nothing is blooming! Why do my eyeballs feel like they’re going to burst out of my head?!

I gave in and took a Sudafed (the non-meth-making kind) and it helped a lot, but it also hurts my milk supply so I can’t make it a regular thing. Although I suppose I could just chug water and eat a ton of cookies and say the calories are “for the baby”. That sounds like it might help with the sinus pain too.

My Week(205) in iPhone Photos

Monday, October 6th, 2014

This week (the one we’re in, not the one in the photos) is International Babywearing Week. In the last 2 months I’ve been totally brainwashed by those sneaky babywearers, who got me with their pretty patterns and fabric geekery and adorable selfies. I promise I’ll take pictures of other stuff one of these days, but since THIS week is IBW, I can’t promise it will happen soon.

Sunday:

sunday1

He’s a jumper, not a toe-dipper. He does not get it from me.

sunday2

Pretty in Pink

sunday3

Vacation baby sleeps on the couch

Monday:

monday1

I don’t think this qualifies as “baby” wearing

monday2

He’s frowning because this is NOT the pool with the gorgeous view. He still loves the actual floaty.

monday3

That’s my kid hugging my best friend’s kid. FEELINGS.

Tuesday:

tuesday1

We were supposed to leave at 7 am. Oops.

tuesday2

So of course this is what happened on I-95. More than an hour parked…

tuesday3

…which lead to some car nursing. PARKED. WE WERE PARKED.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Vacation recovery day. I just stared at this for 12 hours.

wednesday2

FOXES. I’m not sure I’m going to keep this one, but it’s so adorable

wednesday3

A sea monster to eat your baby!

Thursday:

thursday1

My baby bump is still there. It’s just tied on to the outside.

thursday2

She thinks she’s “sneaking” apples for a snack. OH NO DON’T EAT THE APPLES.

thursday3

Floor nap success!

Friday:

friday1

Sweater weather

friday2

This one is called Ahoi and Caroline says it’s her’s.

friday3

They would walk for hours if the sun didn’t set so early

Saturday:

saturday1

Great Grandma brings the best presents

saturday2

Caroline thought Brutus needed to be put to bed

saturday3

I’m not keeping this one, even though Linc seems to like it.

It’s officially fall here in Connecticut, although I am resisting turning on the heat for at least a couple more days. It’s gorgeous and my photography is getting busy again and there are way too many fun things to do. We also got (what I’m calling tentative) confirmation we’re going to be staying in Connecticut for at least a little while longer, so I can just enjoy my friends and my life and not worry about starting over somewhere new. Although Hawaii is going to start looking pretty good when they come fill the oil tank.

STRAWBERRIES

saturday3

False alarm contractions sent me to L&D and then home again. The good news (?) was I wasn’t imagining it, they could see them on the monitors. The better news is they weren’t doing anything so the doctor isn’t worried. The bad news is this will probably keep happening (minus going in to L&D) until I go into real labor.

BOTH kids have field days at school this week, so it’s time to stock up on sunscreen and bug spray and cross my fingers for afternoon naps. I have four photo sessions to finish editing,  three trashed bedrooms to clean (because organizing and rearranging the second floor has gotten Out Of Hand), one zillion baby onesies to sort, and – in theory – a nursery to paint. That is probably not happening, but I can at least pick a color. Who wants to come over and stare at various shades of creamy off-white with me?

Sunday, April 13th, 2014

180 is kind of a crazy number of weeks, right? I mean, I balk every year at doing a 365-project with my DSLR because who takes THAT many pictures?? But it turns out…Me. I do. I take way more than that (although they’re not very good).

saturday3

Photo shoot at Lords Point. Didn’t suck.

This week is spring break for the kids and because I was worried I’d be stuck at home while E was at sea the kids and I are going to Virginia. Unfortunately (fortunately?? I can’t even tell anymore) E ISN’T at sea, so he’ll get a week of no-wife-no-kids. I am hoping he appreciates the silence, the king sized bed to himself, and as much fast food as he wants. I will not remind him that in Virginia I get to see a dear friend’s new baby, have access to grandparent babysitting and all the Chick-fil-a I can eat. Although I think doing the 8+ hour drive by myself means I earn some waffle fries.

If you see a huge pregnant lady dragging two gingers through the Air & Space Museum, say hi.
