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:

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

saturday3

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(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

It took me a minute to figure out “Chief + Mrs. Davis” meant E + me. Formal titles are weird.

Hey girl, check out my hot tub

Everything is awesome…when you have a new Lego set

Friday:

Welcome to the jungle, we’ve got…cheesy music and a jingly lion

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.

My Week(196) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, August 3rd, 2014

This week features my baby sleeping in various places. Of course, I’d like him to also be sleeping RIGHT NOW but he’s decided that’s no fun anymore. Hashtag here comes the exhaustion.

sunday1

Sleeping in the hospital, looking slightly less yellow than when we went in.

sunday2

There are THREE CHILDREN in this photo. I grew them all.

sunday3

I need someone to come over and constantly reassure Caroline she is still adorable.

Monday:

I haven’t decided what to eat this on, so for now I’m using a spoon.

Saturday:

Baby sleeping in a fabric store

saturday2

My no-theme, no-effort nursery now has a theme and some effort (my mom recovered the ottoman)

saturday3

Tippy toes

Linc just stopped moving (he’s still BREATHING, I checked, but he’s not wiggling) so I’m going to hope the 5th feeding in a row worked and he’s finally asleep. Fingers crossed he continues to be an A+ Would Birth Again Excellent Baby.

As a sidenote, I have another sponsored post tomorrow. I know that’s 2 in 2 weeks but I don’t have any more scheduled. It just feels like they’re close together because the only blogging I’m really doing right now is blogging I HAVE to do (I consider my iPhone Photo posts HAVE TOs, because I cannot possibly quit after 195 of them). There will be actual Deep Thoughts and a LOT more pictures soon. Just not now, because sleep.

My Week(194) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, July 20th, 2014

I hate everything.

I’m still pregnant. I haven’t managed to shake the baby even the littlest bit loose since before my due date, so we’re waiting it out a bit longer. The good news is E’s departure date keeps getting pushed back so he’s not going to miss the birth – he still might have to do a mad dash to the hospital to get there but he shouldn’t be At Sea.

The other good news is my house has never been so clean and well organized, since my poor mother has been trying to keep busy instead of just sitting on the couch staring, waiting for me to pop.

Sunday:

sunday1

Mommy I’m a walrus! A turkey walrus!

sunday2

Friday:

friday1

3.5 hours in L&D for tests, NO BABY

friday2

To the pond for some fish-catching (we caught no fish)

friday3

I enjoy sunsets and long walks on the curb trying to get the baby to FALL OUT

Saturday:

saturday1

Infant seats are useful, even without an infant

saturday2

Trapped in my seat by bins of baby clothes that are ALL ORGANIZED now

We actually did even more stuff not pictured. As much as I want to just crawl into bed and sulk until I have a baby, doing stuff is better for me and the kids and my very patient mother. Although I’m starting to lose any semblance of motivation and the bed-crawling thing is looking better and better.

Since I’m NOT having a baby I’ve been editing photos and might actually have some non-iPhone posts up. UNLESS I AM IN LABOR RIGHT NOW IS THAT A CONTRACTION? (No.)
