My Week(207) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, October 19th, 2014

I wore a lot of babies this week. I have to justify owning all these wraps somehow. Although I never thought I’d take/post so many selfies. What can I say, the wraps make me feel pretty.

Sunday:

sunday1

The kids wanted Linc to play with them

sunday2

Obviously I wore the nautical wrap to the seaport

sunday3

Caroline pretending to be daddy in the submarine exibit

Monday:

monday1

Day off school = pjs and iPad

monday2

Wraps also make excellent blankets

monday3

Baby neck torture device is still a favorite

Tuesday:

tuesday1

When you buy a used wrap and your baby immediately falls asleep they say it came with “sleepy dust”.

tuesday2

Really excited about bananas

tuesday3

Basking in the glow of the TV while I catch up on Scandal

Wednesday:

Warm enough to wait for the bus outside!

wednesday2

When you live in an old house, sometimes walk tours stop to point at it.

wednesday3

Gorgeous night at Bluff Point for a session

Thursday:

thursday1

He was happy it was raining so he could wear his cool fireman raincoat

thursday2

She was happy it was raining so she could play with the umbrella

thursday3

Swim on Thursday nights is EXHAUSTING

Friday:

friday1

THESE ARE NOT ALL MINE. Not even half mine. We had a meet up.

friday2

My mirror is filthy but there’s baby on my back!

friday3

This keeps happening. I think she might need day off.

Saturday:

saturday1

Apple picking

saturday2

Goodest good baby slept the whole time

saturday3

This is almost not even like real life, right? Look at that huge empty field.

We had a busy week, and another busy week coming up, followed by nothing but busy weeks until Christmas. I don’t understand how it’s almost the end of October already, or how my baby will be three months this week or how it is almost 11 pm and I am still finishing this post and not sleeping. Time is such a jerk.

Waiting for her meatballs at the Italian Food Festival

The humidity has been INSANE this week, like swimming through the air instead of walking, and without A/C our house has been miserable. I’m so ready for actual, real fall to start, despite the fact that I own ONE pair of pants that fit. No one will notice I’m wearing the same jeans everyday when I’m also wearing a super cute baby in a super cute wrap. (Warning: I’m currently obsessed with woven wraps, I’ll probably bore you talking about them.)

Wordless Wednesday: Flashback Friday Edition

Friday, August 1st, 2014

I have none words because I have a newborn but I do have these pictures from the olden days when I only had 2 children. You know, a whole almost-two-weeks ago. So really this should be called “Pictures I actually took the time to edit so look at them while I take a nap, OK?”

saturday3

And I have drunk so much red raspberry tea I might actually turn pink. COME ON BEBEH!

This was one of those weeks where I really love living in Connecticut. The weather was gorgeous, we enjoyed the aquarium and the beach, and I was struck by how small/friendly/nice our community is. We ran into people we knew everywhere, which is a pleasant thing to happen when I’m always thinking “What would happen right now if my water broke?” Not that I would just abandon my children at the park with a friend, but the fact that there are friends AROUND would make going into labor at Target less mortifying.

Two more weeks (and 3 days BUT WHO’S COUNTING) until my due date and if my What To Expect app asks me one more time “Have you had the baby yet?” I’m going to set it on fire.
