Take Us Out To The Ball Game

Thursday, July 2nd, 2015

I love minor league baseball. I mean, I love major league baseball too, if I get to actually go to the game in person. But major league baseball games are a) expensive b) far away and c) expensive, so I mostly stick to local minor league games. Our team here in town has changed names at least 3 times since we’ve lived here. First they were the Gators (maybe?), then they were The Defenders (I’m sure about that one), now they are the Connecticut Tigers. I appreciate that they make it family friendly. And cheap. Sitting in the first row right on the 3rd base line make the game much more fun for the big kids.

Poor Linc though. Baseball stadiums aren’t exactly baby-friendly, especially for a baby who just started walking and climbing steps. I felt like I spent most of the game wrestling an angry, wet badger. He did seem to like the baseball food, which kept him partially entertained. I mean, who doesn’t like licking the salt off of soft-baked pretzels?

After the game the kids got to run the bases, which they thought was neat. At the end they each got a coupon for free Ben & Jerry’s, which I think is neat, because I can make them share one scoop while I eat the other. Win win.

Photographic proof of our fun and/or eating:

Linc also thought this was a fun game (despite his face not looking so fun).

My Week(235) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, May 3rd, 2015

I started and ended my week with beautiful photo sessions where everyone wore short sleeves. The heat in my house is still kicking on most nights but I am almost confident I can put away my winter coat. Which is good, because today starts soccer GAMES in addition to practices so we’ll be spending even more time outside…

Perfect evening for some photos

Today we went OUT OUT OUT to enjoy the 75 degree weather and now we are all tired tired tired. We just at dinner (it’s 4 pm) and I’m counting on a 6:30 pm bedtime for everyone – probably including me. 12 hours of sleep (even interrupted sleep) sounds amazing. The only family member who isn’t tired is Linc, who is currently out on the porch screeching at anyone who walks by and shoving push-cars around. I WISH he was in here nursing to sleep in my lap – because that’s always a nice excuse to sit on the couch instead of clean stuff – but he has an endless amount of energy. I’m actually looking forward to him walking so I can wear him out more.

Baby who also stands, but I’m way less happy about this one

I registered the big kids for super fun Mystic Seaport summer camps this week. Which made me think “Oh yeah, summer is coming, I’ll need to do something with the kids.” But unfortunately, planning for summer did not make summer come. Remind me not to complain AT ALL about a single hot day once they FINALLY get here.

April should be better though. A little warmer. More stuff to do. Evan’s birthday (no big party, just some fun). BABY GOATS. And my own birthday, which will probably go entirely uncelebrated besides the Facebook mentions, but since I’m turning a very boring 33 that won’t bother me much. I’ll be pretty happy with a nap and some Mexican food.

So, Linc learned to scoot this week. More than lunging, more than wiggling, real one-knee up monkey scooting which makes him fully mobile. For good measure he can also pull up to his knees on the couch, chairs, the cat, the dog, and anything else he can reach. He’ll be on his feet within a month and probably walking by 9 months, just like his jerk brother and sister. WHAT GOOD IS WEARING HIM ALL THE TIME if it doesn’t slow him down at all!? I didn’t WANT him to be mobile!

She won’t stop stealing my heels

We were supposed to go out of town this weekend but our plans changed and we were left with two completely free days. We spent one doing literally nothing and one day having a family adventure. Both were nice but exhausting. I think having a 7 month old means I’m exhausted no matter what we do these days. I actually have dreams where I dream about being asleep.

In fact, I need to go to sleep right now so I can get 3 hours before Linc wakes up to eat. Being a mobile jerk baby takes a lot of energy.

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.
