GIANT BIRD WATCH OUT FOR THE GIANT BIRD

There is no snow in the current forecast. I feel very hopeful that we might actually get some spring in the near future, or at least less snow. I can’t handle much more snow. I’m too pregnant for snow. My entire maternity wardrobe is maxi dresses and cardigans, so it has to be at least 60 degrees as soon as possible. OK THANKS GOOD TALK.

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!

Sunday:

sunday1

This is a friend’s house, but I’m pretty sure we NEED that chair

DIY teething necklace: a ring sling ring on St. Patrick’s Day beads

Someone is smug about getting to use the iPad

friday2

Old Man Lincoln hits the casino

friday3

Food the size of my HEAD = the best kind of food

Saturday:

saturday1

Naps at 8 am aren’t a great sign

saturday2

This is why sponsored pins are a BAD IDEA. This are all results of “DIY BOOKCASE”.

saturday3

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.

My excuse for being so late is “The Holiday Weekend Confuses Me Every Time”. Just ask the poor cashier and Big Y who wasn’t quite sure how to handle me falling to my knees and shouting “Noooooooooooooooooooooooooo!” when I asked why the beer curtain was down on a Saturday (it was Sunday).

Do I need to explain “beer curtain”? Is that a thing anywhere else?

Despite his face, he was very happy to be there.

And now I chain myself to the couch for the next week to catch up on my work. I might stay up way past my bedtime to get some personal editing done too, since I FINALLY dressed up my family and tried for some Christmas card shots of our own but owe photos to 6 other families first. Once again, NOT COMPLAINING, being busy is the best thing ever. I just need to get faster…and maybe turn off my internet connection so I can’t get distracted while I work. Stupid Candy Crush.

We did a lot of stuff this week. There was also a lot of falling asleep on the couch, in the car, on the floor, sitting up, etc. And right now both kids are about to fall asleep next to me while I try to beat level 79 in Candy Crush. It’s NEVER going to happen.

Future jockey in training

  I wrote that whole post and used up all my lives in Candy Crush and Caroline is STILL asleep. But E is also home from work so we’re going to celebrate Cinco de Mayo with some maybe-not-exactly-authentic burritos at Moe’s. Any excuse to eat guacamole is a good one. Happy Weekend!

That might have been the busiest weekend of our entire year. This week is spring break for the kids, which is a different kind of busy. I suspect there will be a LOT of photo posts this week.
