My Week(203) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, September 21st, 2014

This week was seriously insane. I tried to jump back in to work all at once and ended up really, really tired. Plus I think I pinched a nerve in my back. Also I have a weird lump under my armpit that is definitely not a plugged duct. I don’t think. Basically, I’m falling apart. But I got a new iPhone, so this week gets an A+ anyway.

Sunday:

sunday1

The gingers found these and ate them ALL. They are lucky to still live here.

Third baby gets set on the ground a lot

#nofilter for real, the whole parking lot was full of people taking photos of this sky

Monday:

I am super lucky to have clients who actually LIKE my kids. Or at lest pretend really really well.

thursday3

I plan to never be awake to see that time again.

Friday:

friday1

My first picture with my new phone!!!! I was too excited to care that it wasn’t a very good picture.

friday2

It’s so clear! You can see the mess so much better!

friday3

Literally two people who read this will know what I mean, but doesn’t this dress pattern look just like my Tekhni Ceres but in black instead of green?

Saturday:

saturday1

Best view in the world

saturday2

In looooove with that crib, especially because I put it together all myself.

saturday3

This was amazing.

This weekend was rough. On Saturday I actually made the kids go back to bed and start the day over. They both napped for 2 hours and then we went to a festival, where everyone was well behaved and we had a nice time. Sunday was rough all over again. I like school days. Thank God the week is full of them.

My Week(202) in iPhone Photos

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:

tuesdy1

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.

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.
