My Week(197) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, August 10th, 2014

I took all three kids to Virginia, since the idea of feeding, bathing and entertaining them by myself was scarier than driving 450 miles alone. My apologies for ALL the lake pictures, but I basically parked myself on the dock and didn’t move for 4 days.

S’mores to cap off an awesome vacation

Now I am home. We have freezer meals from a friend for dinner, a house still super clean and organized from my mom’s visit and a busy week planned. I might actually survive as a mom of 3 (and by survive, I mean until school starts, because once school starts ALL THE NAPS WILL BELONG TO ME.)

My Week(196) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

This week features my baby sleeping in various places. Of course, I’d like him to also be sleeping RIGHT NOW but he’s decided that’s no fun anymore. Hashtag here comes the exhaustion.

Sleeping in the hospital, looking slightly less yellow than when we went in.

saturday3

Tippy toes

Linc just stopped moving (he’s still BREATHING, I checked, but he’s not wiggling) so I’m going to hope the 5th feeding in a row worked and he’s finally asleep. Fingers crossed he continues to be an A+ Would Birth Again Excellent Baby.

As a sidenote, I have another sponsored post tomorrow. I know that’s 2 in 2 weeks but I don’t have any more scheduled. It just feels like they’re close together because the only blogging I’m really doing right now is blogging I HAVE to do (I consider my iPhone Photo posts HAVE TOs, because I cannot possibly quit after 195 of them). There will be actual Deep Thoughts and a LOT more pictures soon. Just not now, because sleep.

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?”

He loved the lights. I did not love the hospital, but he loved the lights.

We’re home now and I’m going to bed. Hopefully my baby continues to be a champion sleeper for at least one more night so I can recover from the less-than-great nights.

My Week(194) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

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

Monday:

monday1

I want to buy everything too, buddy

I’M MAKING POOR CHOICES smiles

Thursday:

Finishing up errands I NEVER thought I would get done before the baby came

thursday2

OK MY TOES LOOK NICE I CAN GIVE BIRTH

thursday3

Evening aquarium visit

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.)
