My Week(210) in iPhone Photos

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.

Sunday:

sunday1

Waiting in the ER is a lot easier with technology

sunday2

Not impressed with my wrap skills or the tape on his head.

sunday3

I am not the only one who loves wraps

Monday:

monday1

I sold this one, pretty much thanks to this picture

monday2

Beautiful evening light…at 3 pm.

monday3

CHEEKS

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Yes mother, that is a very nice fancy teether. Now if only I knew how to PUT IT IN MY MOUTH.

tuesday2

I can’t be mad about the mess when they’re practicing their words

tuesday3

Brother time

Wednesday:

wednesday1

I was too sick to wear the baby, so we did the grocery-pile-on-the-carseat method

wednesday2

All we did. All day.

wednesday3

My mail lady leaves treats for the dog

Thursday:

thursday1

One of the last buildings left at the old hospital is being torn down (taken from a stopped car at a stop light, I’m not dumb enough to do it while driving).

thursday2

Back floats

thursday3

I am the worst, because I forgot the iPad and she had to just SIT while her brother had swim.

Friday:

Parenting win: taking the kids to a friend’s house to let them bounce while I watch from inside the warm house.

Then the friends came over for pizza and wine. NAILED IT, FRIDAY NIGHT.

Saturday:

saturday1

Never ending Halloween candy

saturday2

Linc found his toes

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?!

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

sunday3

What does the Caroline say?

monday1

A very patriotic wrap for a patriotic day

monday2

Grocery shopping with 3 kids is not my favorite

A beautiful night to go visit a submarine

Why do my eyebrows only look this good for the 10 minutes after I have them waxed?

tuesday3

I’m in love with this picture

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Baby Dr. Evil

wednesday2

I’ve re-purposed the stuff I knit for Evan, since no one knits for baby #3

Ignore my face and loooook at that pretty orange!

Thursday:

thursday1

SMILEY

thursday2

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.

Sunday:

sunday1

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

This haircut cost me $37 – $17 for cut + tip, $20 for the Legos I promised him if he just SAT STILL

“This chair is like my THRONE!”

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.

My Week(185) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, May 18th, 2014

This week felt really, really long. But in a good way. A full way. Something about going away for the weekend to Mom 2.0 changed things at home – maybe we ALL needed a break from each other – and we’re all happier to be around each other. Despite spending an awful lot of the week in various waiting and exam rooms, we ended it in NYC proving our kids are really good sports (we made them walk everywhere) and really fun (when they aren’t driving us crazy).

Sunday:

sunday1

These are my “before” flowerpots, but that didn’t stop her from trying to take care of them.

sunday2

She asked for purple flowers to plant (I don’t even know what these are).

sunday3

Mother’s Day at Chili’s (again) calls for finger guns

Monday:

Freezing, FREEZING cold water

The gingers are unphased by cold

monday3

So excited about her chocolate frog she forgot to take the plastic off.

She tied that all by herself.

tuesday2

Thank God for iPads (during my NST)

tuesday3

Wishflowers

Wednesday:

Pweeeese we swim some more Mommy? Pweeeeeese?

wednesday2

We bought cat food and paper towels and batteries at Walmart. She is hugging the batteries.

Another day, another visit to L&D

Saturday:

When you get the Metro-North seats with the power outlet, you get to play Angry Birds all the way in to the city.

saturday2

Shake Shack is actually as good as everyone says.

saturday3

I think our last family picture (selfie or otherwise) was in October. We heart NYC.

And now I am literally going to crawl upstairs to bed because my left hip is broken (out of joint? sprained? can you sprain a hip?) and I can’t walk. I finally found my sense of direction in New York, but unfortunately it was because we walked EVERYWHERE. I’m pretty sure even the gingers are going to sleep in tomorrow.

Although I did get a super awesome new stroller that’s inspiring me to get back to Stroller Strides. Maybe if my hip pops back in we’ll actually make it this week.
