My Week(212) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, November 23rd, 2014

I did a terrible job of taking photos this week. Terrible. It turns out when I’m busy I forget to pull out my phone and take photos of things like the grocery shopping or our playdate or laundry (ALL THE LAUNDRY). We did have a pretty exciting week though.

Sunday:

sunday1

Linc hung out with me all morning at a newborn session. This is the only picture I took.

ALL THE BATHS for the baby who loves swimming

UNIMPRESSED by riding in the cart

saturday3

I’m pretty sure this photo makes up for all the other ones this week being boring.

Today I went to a photo shoot and brought ZERO children with me. I came home and said “Linc, I missed you!” and then realized it was the first time in his whole 4 months of life I have EVER missed him. Because he has never been more than like 100 feet away from me. Having my husband FINALLY home is pretty useful.

We still don’t know what our plans are for Thanksgiving, so next week’s post could either be nice and early or super late again. I basically care zero perfect about this holiday and am just counting days until I can put up the tree without feeling like a jerk.

Monday, November 10th, 2014

Late late late late late. But we spent ALL day Sunday out of the house and I spent all day today finishing all my photography stuff so I am completely caught up! Now maybe I can blog this week! Or maybe I’ll just say that and not do it again. That seems more likely.

One last sleeping baby

I spent a LOT of time under that baby this week. Usually I try to get stuff done while I sleeps but I felt TERRIBLE for the first half of the week and was busy catching up and seeing friends the second half, so nothing got done. Thank God for antibiotics and Netflix. I cannot believe it is already the second week of November. I refuse to do anything Christmasy until after Thanksgiving, but now I’m worried I’ll wake up and it will suddenly be mid-December and I won’t even have noticed. Why is 2014 going so fast?!

Sunday, October 26th, 2014

I am tiiiiiiired. I don’t even have a good excuse beyond doing lots of stuff this week – my darling darling baby slept 10 hours last night. But this weekend was busy and this next week is going to be super busy. I feel like a broken record, because all I post anymore is complaints about how BUSY I am and I know it’s boring. But really, once you have three kids you’re pretty much always busy. Even the baby thinks I should try to sit on the couch more – he’s really tired of being nursed in uncomfortable chairs.

Sunday:

sunday1

Sleepy stars and stripes

sunday2

Obviously when you see a pile of leaves you throw them

What does the Caroline say?

See, I swear, I buy the wraps FOR HIM. HE LIKES THEM.

thursday3

I wouldn’t let a kid that close to my computer with a marker, but Daddy is nicer than me.

Friday:

friday1

We bought this car when I was pregnant with Caroline. It had 16000 miles on it.

friday2

THE MOST unflattering photo of myself I’ve ever voluntarily posted, but his face is too good to pass up. WTF IS ON YOUR HEAD, MOM?

friday3

New hairs are nice.

Saturday:

saturday1

Stealth photo of my husband in uniform during the comissioning ceremony.

saturday2

WHY AM I STILL AWAKE AT A PARTY AT 9 PM?

saturday3

Yeah, I ate that.

I am once again shocked at how many photos of my own face are in this post. I’m not a selfie person. Or at least, I didn’t think I was a selfie person. But that might have had something to do with being hugely pregnant for what felt like the last decade. It was also SO NICE to get my hair cut (even if I had to bring the baby) that I’m going back in 5 weeks to refresh my color. I have nice hair when I take care of it, and since right now I feel old and fat, I need to work on what makes me feel good. Maybe in a couple weeks I’ll do something REALLY crazy, like schedule a facial or a massage.

Oh who am I kidding, if I had money for a massage I’d just spend it on another wrap. I cannot stop drinking the babywearing Koolaid.

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(200!!) in iPhone Photos

Monday, September 1st, 2014

200 WEEKS of mostly terrible, blurry, boring photos of the normal stuff we do every day. I have no idea why I’ve kept this up for so long but I’m glad I have. The first week I did it, I was pregnant with Caroline. This week, she went to her first day of real school. Never has 200 weeks seemed so short.

Grocery shopping with 3 kids is a pain, but a baby who sleeps the whole time makes it better

My photography assistant fell asleep on the job. Again.

And there you go, 21 more unremarkable pictures of our life. The only thing that’s going to change in the near future is I’m going to upgrade my iPhone, so maybe my pictures will get slightly better. Although not more interesting. We’re pretty boring, and I’m OK with that.
