Best Weekend of the Year 2014

Wednesday, September 17th, 2014

They changed the name of Taste of Mystic to Mystic Eats, but besides that it’s the same weekend we’ve had for 3 years now. And it was just as delicious and fun now as it always is. (For reference: Post from 2012, Post from 2013. I am once again really please with how my photography has really improved. This year’s photos are in focus!)

Sunday, September 14th, 2014

There is a lot of my face in this post, which is weird. I am not a selfie person, but when all you do is hold or nurse a baby there isn’t that much else to take pictures of.

Sunday:

sunday1

They will never get tired of swinging.

sunday2

Even the litter in Mystic is classier than regular litter.

sunday3

That bubble gun is identical to the one we bought the exact same weekend last year. It lasted exactly as long (10 minutes).

Monday:

monday1

I feel so naked in this photo because I took the case off my iPhone.

monday2

A+ for adorable sleeping

monday3

OMG I ACTUALLY PICKED UP MY NEEDLES

Tuesday:

School bus buddies

tuesdy2

GTFO Big Lots

tuesday3

I’ll never get tired of how people react to this thing.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Uniform on top, her own wacky fashion on the bottom

wednesday2

Mmmmmmmmm homework

wednesday3

Multitasking: feeding a baby, breaking in a woven wrap, transferring pictures, Facebooking and cuddling a cat. WHILE TAKING A PICTURE.

 Thursday:

thursday1

Happy baby, happy octopus shirt, happy monkey diaper

thursday2

More school bus fashion

thursday3

Bathtime smiles

Friday:

friday1

I’m at the ATT store and smiling. CAN YOU GUESS WHY?

friday2

Sometimes your mom knits a newborn hat and then uses you unwillingly as a guinea pig

friday3

Sooooo…I have this new hobby. Habit. Obsession? #tryallthewraps

Saturday:

saturday1

I swear that face is the reaction to the cow barn at The Big E, not the hat.

saturday2

Clam fritters and Del’s – Rhode Island wins at food

saturday3

Caroline does not look nearly terrified enough

I am already done with this week and it’s only Sunday night. I haven’t felt this tired since the night I didn’t get any sleep because I was giving birth. And even then my back didn’t hurt so much thanks to the epidural. I plan to be in bed by 8 as many times this week as I can.

Didn’t even get out of her jammies before she needed a nap.

I have not yet mastered the “look at the camera” part of a selfie

saturday3

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.)

My Week(199) in iPhone Photos

Monday, August 25th, 2014

Next week will be 200 WEEKS of iPhone photos, which is a lot of weeks. It will also be total chaos, between two different classroom orientations, two different start times, two buses, two schools, my first attempts at lunch-packing, all with a newborn in tow. Don’t be shocked if every photo is of a large Dunkin iced coffee. This week, no coffee, but certainly some questionable food choices.

Sunday:

sunday1

Watching HGTV while the kids destroy the house. This is our default mode.

sunday2

BEBEH SOCKS

sunday3

It took me a minute to figure out “Chief + Mrs. Davis” meant E + me. Formal titles are weird.

Monday:

monday1

Emergency food supplies

monday2

It’s been a very tiring summer

monday3

Hey girl, check out my hot tub

Tuesday:

tuesday1

I’m totally re-in love with baby wearing

tuesday2

THE BEST

tuesday3

Daddy multi-tasking

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Sleepy smiles

wednesday2

I asked her to bring me some diapers

wednesday3

Evening walk

Thursday:

thursday1

Climbing the one bazillion stairs in town hall

thursday2

This is as clean as it gets. I sense a large donation to Goodwill in my future.

thursday3

Everything is awesome…when you have a new Lego set

Friday:

friday1

The Dread Pirate Evan

friday2

Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got…cheesy music and a jingly lion

friday3

Baby Linc wants to know how long before he can have Five Guys

Saturday:

saturday1

That little finger just kills me

saturday2

Baby’s first restaurant! My kids are so New England.

saturday3

Caroline ordered spaghetti and meatballs and ate a REALLY impressive amount

So far my plan to Stay On Top Of Things is going really well, if you don’t count Linc’s first month update and this post both being a day late. The sink is still empty and clean, the toys are still organized and (mostly) off the floor, and I made it to the grocery store to get school lunch supplies. Now we’ll see how long actually MAKING lunch lasts before I start offering money for hot lunch instead.

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.

sunday2

She hearts books

sunday3

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

Monday:

monday1

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:

thursday1

They are singing sea shanties.

thursday2

GORGEOUS day at the seaport

thursday3

Aunt Carolyn read A LOT of books

Friday:

friday1

Pensive? She’s going for thoughtful.

friday2

Farmer’s market = 3 year old heaven

friday3

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!
