But wait, you say, it's already the 20th of January! Yeah, thanks, I'm aware of that... I JUST HAD A BABY so cut me some slack.
I might start a seperate blog for all these pictures, but for now here's my first, very overdue and very picture heavy, "365 days of pictures" entry:
My mom and I took the boys to the Children's Museum for the first time. They LOVED IT. I love that it's free each Thursday afternoon...
I've already posted so many pictures from the day Andrew was born, so here's one from Heather's camera (my second pic and cheating already!).
I love Peter's dear-in-the-headlights look here!
My first time wrapping Andrew in a proper long wrap (a Hot Mama hemp jersey, if anyone cares to know). I think I kinda look like the victim of a bad spray tan job, but am too lazy to fix it right now.
Snuggled up in a vintage blue and white indio shorty. Look how tiny!
While my mom stayed home with Simon, Liam and I took Andrew in to meet his class. Liam was so proud to sit at the front, holding his new little brother. His friends had a chance to ask questions, see his umbilical cord stump ("ewww"), and then got the chance to hold him. I imagined all the little girls being super excited to see and hold a six day old baby, but the boys were way more into it.
A staring contest with grandma.
Grandma hasn't forgotten how to play cars.
This is a quilt that my mom and I made for Lynette out of a bunch of my dad's flannel shirts... he had a bit of a plaid problem. The backing is big squares from some of his (many) favorite sweatshirts. While likely not heirloom quality, I love how each of the squares reminds me of dad.
Peter getting in on the babywearing action. I didn't even have to threaten/beg/trick him into it. IT WAS HIS IDEA.
This lovely double linen ring sling was lent to me by a Babywearer member from Hawaii. I'm glad I didn't give up and admit defeat when thoroughly frustrated by the gathered shoulder. Now that I've gotten the hang of it, it really is quite comfy (and the colors go with 90% of my clothes!).
Think I should lighten this some more?
I still have to upload the ones from the last few days, so will work on that tonight. I realize that none of these are photographic masterpieces, but at least I'm using my camera more. And come December 2009, this should be a fun record of our year. Hope you all enjoy it too.
