My Week(333) in iPhone Photos

Friday, March 24th, 2017

Not that 333 actually represents anything especially meaningful, but it does seem like a ridiculously high number of weeks to have been doing this. When I started I only had ONE KID.

Sunday:

LAND SHARK

Just a few more sink baths before he’s big enough for the real tub

Adjusting my camera, my Sigma Art is still on point

Monday:

And THIS is the grocery store I just finished terrorizing!

Make-up storage

I am officially just an armrest

Tuesday:

Snow Day waffle assistants

Doing some journaling

My husband thinks he’s funny or something

Wednesday:

Not quite spring yet

Library visit

She would have just stayed until they threw her out

Thursday:

Adorable

Linc pretending he’s a big kid

Ignoring the mess because sometimes you just have to

Friday:

Find the hidden toddler

Babies love babies

Linc took 800 photos just like this one

Saturday:

My spring banner is missing it’s flowers. Because children.

Sittin’ baby sits now

Cards and taco dip

Since today is only Friday, I’m now caught up on my weeks. I’ve started putting together stuff about our Disney trip already (the one we aren’t even going on for several more months) because I don’t want to forget all the sites I’ve found super helpful while we’re planning. But reading other people’s vacation recaps is my new favorite thing, so if you have any – or follow someone who has been to Disney and written about it – drop me a link. I could seriously read about standing in line to meet Anna and Elsa all day.

Snow Day!

Sunday, February 12th, 2017

The other night E and I spent a solid 5 minutes trying to figure out why our DVR wasn’t recording SNL before we realized it was Friday. ┬áThat’s what happens when you get 20 inches of snow and a bunch of days off. Snow days are both really relaxing (no lunches to pack! no schedules!) and really, really stressful (so many children all home and trapped inside for most of the day, so much hassle to get them dressed just to go out for 10 minutes, SO MUCH FIGHTING).

But mostly my children love the snow and just want to spend as much time playing in it as possible. And eating it. They’re all obsessed with eating snow.

This hill is walking distance from our house, behind what used to be an elementary school but now is just an empty field. It’s an easy walk, except if you’re carrying a 2-year-old through unbroken snow almost as tall as he is. Then it’s exhausting. Also the 2-year-old can’t climb back up the hill when he sleds down, so I have to carry him back up every time. I talked him into swinging for a while instead. But the big kids slept really well that night.

In case you’re wondering, that house at the top of the hill is the Greene Mansion, but it was turned into condos a long time ago so it’s not a mansion anymore. I can’t find anything online about it, but it’s definitely in the same walking tour pamphlet as my house. I should go to town hall and get more of those.

I realized that although I managed to blog for real last week I forgot my iPhone post. This is the week before Christmas.

Sunday:

The American Girl Store: where tiny pianos are a necessity

Caroline + Kit

Then Kit came to Target and insisted on a nutcracker

Monday:

Good morning, Kylo.

Big boy haircut makes him look SO BIG

I might have a matching jams problem

Tuesday:

Dad pro

Frozen puddles

More shopping with Caroline + Kit

Wednesday:

3 am Christmas tree makes getting up with the baby not so bad

She’ll read to anyone who will hold still

The kids REALLY REALLY love filters

Thursday:

Who doesn’t want to go to Target 3 days before Christmas?

That explains why that drawer is broken (and also why our furniture is bolted to the wall)

Bumpa is Linc’s hero

Friday:

BabyGuy Box swag!

Watching our favorite Christmas movie

BITING THINGS

Saturday:

Mormor needed a photo in the shirts she bought

Wrapper’s delight

GIANT BIRD WATCH OUT FOR THE GIANT BIRD

There is no snow in the current forecast. I feel very hopeful that we might actually get some spring in the near future, or at least less snow. I can’t handle much more snow. I’m too pregnant for snow. My entire maternity wardrobe is maxi dresses and cardigans, so it has to be at least 60 degrees as soon as possible. OK THANKS GOOD TALK.

My Week(277) in iPhone Photos

Sunday, February 21st, 2016

This was one of those weeks where when I look back at the pictures from Monday I can’t believe it was less than a week ago. The long weekend on top of all our regular activities plus a busy work week for E meant I spent a lot of time in the car, a lot of time with all 3 kids and a lot of time wearing leggings.

Sunday:

sunday1

That looks comfortable.

sunday2

NOT OK

sunday3

Happy Valentine’s Day?

Monday:

monday1

I abandoned my children to video games

monday2

…and whatever this mess is…

monday3

…to take VERY IMPORTANT PICTURES

Tuesday:

tuesday1

Of course the morning we have plans is the morning he sleeps in

tuesday2

They are way too big for that cart

tuesday3

I let him play on my phone during Caroline’s ballet and found a dozen of these.

Wednesday:

wednesday1

Yes dear, your toes are very dirty, I see.

wednesday2

KEEP DOING THIS

wednesday3

I swear I feed him, he just really wanted cake

Thursday:

That’s his eating seat

SNUGGLES

Check out my leggings I will never wear again because I ripped a HUGE HOLE across the butt. In public.

My toddler + extra ginger toddler = a game where they jump off chairs

Just when I was ready to pass on the trains, everyone loves trains again

saturday2

New hair color

saturday3

NEW FIT BIT!!! All my walking COUNTS AGAIN!!

 

I swear I washed those leggings in between days I wore them. I also washed that grey sweater. Twice. Because I’m wearing it again right now. I’m pretty ready for spring so I can start wearing dresses with cardigans again instead of JUST leggings. Although I’ll probably still wear a lot of leggings.
