My Week(268) in iPhone Photos

Tuesday, December 22nd, 2015

Hey look! My blog is working again! It is no longer infected with vicious malware because my host company fixed it. Which is good, because I have literally no idea how that happened OR how to fix it. So here’s last week’s post, late but done.

Three more days until Christmas and it’s currently 60 degrees outside. We might go to Boston on Christmas Eve because it will be warm enough not to bring coats for walking around. I’m still not complaining, because I am sure we’ll be burried in snow before spring.

The rest of my plans for this week include making fudge and cookies and letting the kids eat as many sweets as they want because Christmas. I love Christmas.

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:

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

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

“This chair is like my THRONE!”

 Monday:

That Lego set was totally worth the $20

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

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(198) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, August 17th, 2014

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.

She hearts books

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

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:

They are singing sea shanties.

thursday2

GORGEOUS day at the seaport

Aunt Carolyn read A LOT of books

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!

My Week(154) in iPhone Photos

Monday, October 14th, 2013

My excuse for being so late is “The Holiday Weekend Confuses Me Every Time”. Just ask the poor cashier and Big Y who wasn’t quite sure how to handle me falling to my knees and shouting “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!” when I asked why the beer curtain was down on a Saturday (it was Sunday).

Do I need to explain “beer curtain”? Is that a thing anywhere else?

Despite his face, he was very happy to be there.

And now I chain myself to the couch for the next week to catch up on my work. I might stay up way past my bedtime to get some personal editing done too, since I FINALLY dressed up my family and tried for some Christmas card shots of our own but owe photos to 6 other families first. Once again, NOT COMPLAINING, being busy is the best thing ever. I just need to get faster…and maybe turn off my internet connection so I can’t get distracted while I work. Stupid Candy Crush.

I mean, I only have three doll houses, why not buy another one? (I did not)

Grocery store in the pouring rain

Destroying the house and having pillow fights in the pouring rain

saturday2

I never should have showed her how the front-facing camera works.

saturday3

Restarted C25K. This time I am determined to finish.

The urgency to do as many things and have as much fun as possible before summer is over has hit. I was actually grateful for a rainy miserable day to stay home and relax (even though we ended up having friends over and totally wearing out my kids). July is almost over and August is going to FLY by and then Evan starts 5 days a week morning pre-k, which I am both totally ready and not at all ready for. They grow up so fast, etc etc, but I’m looking forward to a new stage where I have a lot more time to focus on things I love (especially photography) instead of just being Mommy.
