My Week(170) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, February 2nd, 2014

It’s Superbowl Sunday! Wait, am I allowed to say the word “superbowl”? Or do I have to do the dancing around all the TV commercials do? Big game! Football day! Nationally eating stuff event! I do plan to eat all the stuff, although I’m lucky enough to be attending a party where someone else is doing all the cooking.

But when I picked her up at 11:30 she was HYSTERICAL and said her ear hurt. Poor baby was right and wins the award for the first Davis child to get an ear infection. She was back to normal after 24 hours of meds and luckily loves the taste of amoxicillin.

Attempt #2 at McDonald’s biscuits was failure #2

I am behind on literally everything I’m supposed to be doing right now, but I have high hopes I’ll be able to catch up this week. I also have some exciting weekend plans involving seeing some of my very favorite people in the world. Just keep your fingers crossed we don’t get a snowstorm late in the week that keeps me trapped at home and moping instead of once again eating all the things.

Sometimes I Pretend I Have Other Hobbies

Friday, March 15th, 2013

Hey, remember how I used to knit stuff? Knitting is such a nice relaxing hobby unless you’re other hobby is blogging, because it’s impossible to blog and knit at the same time. Until science perfects the double arm transplant and I have two sets of hands, I’ve been letting my knitting needles gather dust so I could focus on the internet.

But right now I’m just not a very good blogger. I’ve been having a great time doing the Worst Preschool Shows on Television brackets and of course my adorable children make for good picture posts, but I haven’t been in much of a sharing mood. I’m just not feeling like my life is exciting or beautiful enough right now to warrant much sharing.

Part of that is because a lot of my energy has been going into my wife/mom/housekeeper jobs, all of which are demanding a lot more attention than usual. And for possibly the first time ever, I’m going to err on the side of under-sharing and NOT write down every single marriage-related complaint that’s been on my mind. Most of it is the exact same stuff every wife and mother complains about (under-valued, never get a break, blahdy blah blah blah) and at least 75% of that is work-based on E’s part, so it’s not even WORTH complaining about. The Navy doesn’t care if I have a sinus infection. Hell, my children REALLY don’t care if I have a sinus infection. It seems more like they’ve accepted a challenge to see who can make my ear drums burst first.

Also, approximately EVERYONE ELSE IN THE WORLD is pregnant right now and I am…not. I was hoping to I’d be announcing another (maybe) ginger baby any day now, but my uterus remains uninvaded. It’s not a tragedy. It’s not even a demi-crisis yet – trying for a few months unsuccessfully isn’t even close to secondary (tertiary?) infertility and I have no reason to complain. But it’s something that’s on my mind a lot and not something I want to write about extensively since I don’t want anyone think I am whining  so I’ve been keeping those thoughts offline.

Instead of blogging I’ve been knitting again. I finally finished a scarf I’ve had on my needles for a year. I’m 75% done with a super cute short sleeved sweater for Caroline. I have big plans to knit for some of those bazillionteen pregnant people’s babies. I also took a big leap and rented a very pricey lens for my camera this weekend, so I’ll be spending every single daylight hour getting the most of it. Not to mention Evan’s birthday is only 3 weeks away and I need to make a hundred feet of pennant banners and plan a menu.

It’s nice to work on something that isn’t my computer for a change. Being busy is an excellent use of time I was spending feeling sorry for myself.

My Week(112) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, December 22nd, 2012

I think Caroline slept more this week than she has since she was a newborn. Poor lamb has never been so sick – the doctor called us Saturday morning just to check in since he was so worried about her. Luckily after we got her fever under control and started the antibiotics she improved VERY quickly and is right now playing hide and seek with her brother. Badly.

Sunday:

sunday1

Sunday morning pancake face

sunday2

This bedroll was a birthday gift and is has been right there on the floor since she opened it. She LOVES it.

sunday3

Sure, a 6 pm nap seems like a great idea.

Monday:

monday1

Dinosaur Evan waits for Aunt Sara to get off the train

monday2

Do I have something on my face?

monday3

More naps

Tuesday:

This is how we keep company warm, since the thermostat is set to 63

Happy Birthday?

Wiping his nose and scratching his butt. Oh boys.

Asleep again. Poor baby.

This is my OB’s waiting room. I kind of want to live there.

Waiting at the pediatrician. Asleep again.

friday3

I doubt your commitment to my bath time tea party

Saturday:

E won a door prize at his work Christmas party. Maybe I’ll finally get my iPad back from the kids!

saturday2

Snack in a fairy house

saturday3

Now that the Neiman Marcus stuff is 50% off I thought about buying this again. But it is STILL $50 and I am STILL not that crazy.

Tomorrow my in-laws come to visit, the next day is Christmas Eve, on the 25th we’re going to make cookies and watch Christmas movies and then have our “Christmas” with presents and stockings on the 26th. Even with extra-early Thanksgiving the month has flown past and I can’t believe it’s almost over. I’m just so happy both kids look like they’re going to be healthy (KNOCK ON WOOD) by the time we celebrate Christmas.

Did you take iPhone photos of your week? Link up with one or several below! Please consider joining, even if you haven’t done it before – it’s really fun!

Wordless Wednesday: Beach Day Edition

I don’t have the energy to come up with a title for this today

Monday, April 18th, 2011

I have three actual blog posts 75% written and was planning to finish at least one up last night but I went to bed at 9 with a horrible pain in my kidney (AGAIN) and woke up with a fever (AGAIN) so I’m going to spend the day popping antibiotics and chugging water in bed. Because I am single parenting Tuesday and Wednesday I NEED to get better by tonight so I don’t lose my mind. (Call me spoiled if you want but the best part of my day is when my husband gets home from work and is actually excited to spend time with the toddler I’m 30 seconds away from selling to gypsies.)

So instead of words today, please enjoy these pictures of the kids.

It's like a game - can you spot two kids in this picture?

They found each other!

She's topless, he's pantsless, together they're almost a fully dressed kid!

This is how we amuse ourselves - playing "how long can we let go of the baby before she falls over?". Don't worry, we catch her.

Love

Apparently Dada is a lot more interesting than I am.

If adorable feet were a cure for illness, I'd be the healthiest person in the world.

My Week(47) in iPhone Photos

My Week(21) in iPhone Photos

Saturday, March 26th, 2011

Ready for the most boring week in iPhone photos EVER? This is what happens when you have the flu, then are in the hospital, then sick, then snow, all in one week. I PROMISE we’ll go somewhere next week so you can see pictures that don’t include my family room rug.

Sunday:

Caroline is already bored with this post.

The iPad is truly family entertainment

Monday:

Peek-a-boo!

Yeah, this is all I've got

Tuesday:

This is Little Evan's new favorite outfit. I think the camo pants make it EXTRA SPECIAL.

Hey look, I left the house! To go sit in a hospital for 5 hours.

Wednesday:

There was lots and lots of lying down on Wednesday

Luckily we are a family that really likes napping

Thursday:

Screw you New England

Somebody likes her exersaucer

When you use a baby carrier for Teddy, your hands are free for important things like flashcards.

And you can run REALLY FAST and not worry about dropping him!

Friday:

A beautiful day for some more time at the hospital

I wore my Allora Handmade earrings & got tons of compliments

I finally got some time to relax. Hey, it's your turn on WWF.

Saturday:

Crazy hair and an adorable shirt

Doing a little work around the house

I have no idea what we’re going to do to day but it will NOT be sit on the couch and veg. I’m going to lose my freakin’ mind if I have to listen to this whining echo around the same two rooms for one more minute. MIND. LOST.

Did you take any camera phone photos this week? Link up with one or lots using the linky below and grab the code (so it shows on your blog too!) over at Amy’s . It’s really fun!
