My Week(215) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, December 14th, 2014

I took a nap today, because I felt like I might actually die if I didn’t. I’m not even crazy sleep deprived or anything, I had just hit the wall of touched-out and busy and mentally tired of staying on top of everything. Caroline’s party is this Saturday and Christmas is next week and then we have one more visit to finish up 2014…and then I am never leaving the house again. 2015 will be the year ALL THE THINGS get organized and clean using only supplies I can order through Amazon Prime so I don’t have to wear pants.

I spent 30 minutes today gluing googly eyes to toothpicks for Caroline’s party (you’ll have to guess what for) and my plans for the evening include moving everything from my dining room to the basement so I can turn it into an under the sea wonderland. I am very far behind compared to previous party years. I’m refusing to worry though, because I will have LOTS of help with all the family in town, and I am sure they will be more than willing to hang up 100 green streamers and blow up 200 balloons. Or at least they will pretend to be happy to do it while wondering why I am insane.

Sunday, December 7th, 2014

We played a little hooky this week. Since E is on actual non-working vacation for the first time in three years I’ve declared December the DON’T CARE month and we’re doing as many fun things as possible, even if it means skipping school. The kids are 5 and 3, I’m pretty sure they won’t be educationally handicapped for life just because they missed a few days. Especially considering last week was half-days and Evan spent them watching movies. They’re probably better off with us in Ohio, learning useful game-playing skills like Battleship and Hand & Foot.

Sunday:

No no, no pictures please

…for the important stuff.

Saturday:

saturday1

Why yes you may go outside and play in the freezing cold if you want.

saturday2

Hello, is it me you’re looking for?

saturday3

Linc and I went for a freezing cold walk to look at lights. He lasted 2 minutes before he fell asleep – and stayed asleep – for almost 2 hours.

I can’t believe it is already the second week of December. TOO FAST TOO FAST. I need more time to do all the holiday stuff. Plus I haven’t even MAILED Caroline’s birthday invites. If I hadn’t ordered them already I’d be tempted to just make a Facebook event and send it to my entire friends list and just hope a few people show up. I can’t imaging why I feel so rushed and disorganized this year. Maybe I’m not drinking enough Diet Coke. That MUST be it.

Sunday, November 30th, 2014

Welcome to a WHOLE NEW WORLD. This world is called “My husband is home after 4 months of being totally gone and 3+ years of being mostly absent”. We’re a full week in and definitely still adjusting, especially since not only is E back from sea he has a MONTH OFF. I’m trying to make up for the last 3 holiday seasons he mostly missed in the next 3 weeks, so the gingers might be missing a little school. Who really learns anything between Thanksgiving and Christmas anyways? They’ll have plenty of time for school during the horrible months of January, February and March.

Sunday:

saturday2

SANTAAAAAA!!! I KNOW HIM!

Linc is SO DONE with his stuffy nose. Poor baby.

I think I might have actual blog posts to write this week. Although don’t get your hopes up TOO much, I also have two sessions to edit and Christmas cards/birthday invites to order. Plus finishing up a bunch of loose work ends. So…just kidding about the blogging thing. I should be able to actually sit down and write about things on my mind some time after the new year.

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.

sunday1

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

UNIMPRESSED by riding in the cart

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.

Linc has two bottom teeth. If you’ve ever had a 3 month old with teeth you will know why it has taken me two days to finish this post. And also why my right nipple hurts so bad I wish I could just cut it off.

I have a new game for you, called “count how many times Suzanne wears the babies in this week’s post”. The prize is then you get to judge me for being crazy.

Sunday:

sunday1

I wore my wrap instead of a coat for our walk to church

Real life: I bring my baby to photo sessions because he’s exclusively nursing, but sometimes it does not go well. Luckily the photos themselves are still awesome.

saturday2

OH THANKS HOW TO TRAIN YOUR DRAGON SEQUEL, I WANTED TO CRY MY EYES OUT

saturday3

Wraps make good blankies after rough days too.

And now I am going to go grit my teeth and nurse down the miserable baby AGAIN (and then give him some tylenol and gas drops and teething tablets and make sure his amber necklace is on and stand on one leg naked in the moonlight and ANYTHING ELSE that might help him with his sad mouth pain). Poor baby.
