I hate everything.

I’m still pregnant. I haven’t managed to shake the baby even the littlest bit loose since before my due date, so we’re waiting it out a bit longer. The good news is E’s departure date keeps getting pushed back so he’s not going to miss the birth – he still might have to do a mad dash to the hospital to get there but he shouldn’t be At Sea.

The other good news is my house has never been so clean and well organized, since my poor mother has been trying to keep busy instead of just sitting on the couch staring, waiting for me to pop.

Sunday:

sunday1

Mommy I’m a walrus! A turkey walrus!

sunday2

Obsessed with the new bathmat

sunday3

The kids are enjoying the clean, newly made-over bathroom too

Friday:

friday1

3.5 hours in L&D for tests, NO BABY

friday2

To the pond for some fish-catching (we caught no fish)

friday3

I enjoy sunsets and long walks on the curb trying to get the baby to FALL OUT

Saturday:

saturday1

Infant seats are useful, even without an infant

saturday2

Trapped in my seat by bins of baby clothes that are ALL ORGANIZED now

We actually did even more stuff not pictured. As much as I want to just crawl into bed and sulk until I have a baby, doing stuff is better for me and the kids and my very patient mother. Although I’m starting to lose any semblance of motivation and the bed-crawling thing is looking better and better.

Since I’m NOT having a baby I’ve been editing photos and might actually have some non-iPhone posts up. UNLESS I AM IN LABOR RIGHT NOW IS THAT A CONTRACTION? (No.)

My Week(188) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, June 8th, 2014

Caroline has 1 more week of school and Evan has 2 more weeks. They are signed up for absolutely no summer activities, which might be a huge mistake on my part but for now I’m looking forward to it – we have enough memberships and passes to keep us busy on boring days and I really don’t want to be forced out of the house on the days where I’m too pregnant to do anything besides watch Harry Potter movies.

Sunday:

sunday1

I don’t actually know what time she got up, but she was asleep by 11 am.

Too lazy to grill our own food means 5 Guys takeout on the patio

CUDDLES ALL THE CUDDLES

A long week finally caught up with him

Friday:

She’s obsessed with the rhododendrons

Impulsive dinner out at Voodoo Grill and the best shrimp po’boy I have EVER eaten

STOP SHOWING OFF, MYSTIC

Saturday:

saturday1

She wore this for most of the day.

saturday2

She looks really happy because…

saturday3

…BOUNCE HOUSE. We love birthday parties.

The whole weekend has been gorgeous, which means the house is trashed, the laundry is piling up and we’ll probably have ice cream for dinner again. It’s supposed to rain tomorrow, so I’ll catch up then. Or maybe Caroline and I will go to the aquarium and I’ll just ignore the mess. That seems like more fun.

My Week(186) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, May 25th, 2014

I’ve been doing these weekly posts since I was pregnant with Caroline. She’s now a fully functional human (well, unless you try to stop pushing her on the swings, then she is a hideous raging monster beast) and I’m only a few weeks away from another baby. If the entire internet self destructed tomorrow, these posts the things I’d be the saddest to lose.

Sunday:

sunday1

This was pretty much the only awesome stroller we DIDN’T take home from New York. It’s really awesome.

sunday2

Caroline made herself right at home.

sunday3

It was so great to have E with us in NYC for the first time.

Monday:

monday1

Reading Spiderman books to Doggy. Obviously.

monday2

Bubble machines are priceless. PRICELESS.

monday3

Someone is still exhausted from New York.

Tuesday:

tuesday1

She thinks the a/c vent is tiny stairs for tiny people.

tuesday2

Another Tuesday, another non-stress test

tuesday3

They can find their way around the hospital without me now.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

OFFICIALLY SUMMER

wednesday2

Weirdoes

wednesday3

Swam all the way to the deep end by herself

Thursday:

thursday1

How one child gets so many scrapes and bruises (and almost never mentions them) is beyond me

thursday2

Cute kid. Trashed house.

thursday3

Performing at the spring Science Fair. He knew all the words.

Friday:

friday1

Enjoying her tiny rain-proof house at Stroller Strides

friday2

God bless iPads. Seriously. SERIOUSLY.

friday3

Well earned cheeseburgers after our appointment.

Saturday:

saturday1

I dunno, it’s a wall. I liked it.

saturday2

The best food in the world.

saturday3

Motherhood: when your nice relaxing bubble bath is ruined by this thing staring up at you.

I have too many things to do and not enough time to do them all, so I am mostly doing nothing. Besides editing pictures. That is both fun and able to be done while I sit on the couch and watch this Star Trek movie. Again. There’s a tribble! I love tribbles! Tomorrow I am making a pie, which should count as more than enough things for one pregnant lady to do in a weekend. Maybe I will make two pies, just to be sure someone besides me gets to eat some.
