10 weeks-ish

At least, I think it has been about that long...
So, let's just get the baby pictures out of the way.
I took these last Thursday (maybe-who knows what day it is?)
My mother will appreciate the first one. (I think if you click it gets big) And then a giggle.

Up Hill All the Way.
I walked the boys to summer playground this morning at the Middle School that is near our house. OMG, it was all up hill. I knew my road was, but I didn't realize that the crossroad was, too! Thank goodness it was only 64 degrees this morning. I had Lil'one in the bjorn and was feeling every pound on my postpartum body.
I guess if you aren't from Pittsburgh (not that I am, either, let's be clear) you don't realize that the "up hill, both ways, in the snow," is talking about the 'burgh and the goat paths they paved to make roads in terrain that no one in their right mind would have thought would be a good place to build a city. I guess, to be fair, the triangle is pretty flat. But Mt. Washington is on other side of the river! Duh.
Anyway, I sweat.

Back on the Ranch
I want to card some fleece.
Just to card some fleece, it isn't like I have time to do anything else with it.
So I cleaned the bathroom and swept the family room and tried to dust. The blue handle has gone missing for the swiffer duster. So, that was a little hard.
Now, my penance is done, and Lil'one took a big poo and wants to eat.
I shoulda played first.

Lil'one was baptised. Officially Catholic, now. Two family pictures within one month!
Isn't it cute how the Mister holds onto his baby girl?
All the Mayhem men love that little girl to pieces.
I don't think princess is going to cover it.
Maybe empress?

A Glimpse

Baby feet. Laurie made the booties for her. Actually several pair. All sooooooo cute.

I just took the pictures off the camera

Lady K came to visit Memorial Day weekend.
She's my best friend since... forever.
I wish we lived closer.

And a family picture. (Thanks, K)
It is kinda weird to be a family of 5.
I guess I am still adjusting
Then the boys got their summer haircuts.
And the Eldest became even older.
I didn't make the cake this year. He saw this at the Giant Eagle and I was feeling lazy enough to order it for him.
It tasted as good as it looks.

More of Laurie's knitting. She gifted this outfit to the lil'one at last knit night.
This is the Mister's idea of taking a picture of her outfit so that Laurie can see how it fits... I need to train him better.
btw, it fits perfectly and is super cute.

Lil'one gets baptised on Father's Day.
Pictures, hopefully, in the near future. Her gown is so pretty...

Nothing to Show

Well, we made it thru the first 6 weeks- 7 1/2 by now - and I have nothing to show. No new pictures and nothing crafty, for sure.
Eldest turns 9 this week. Yes, I said 9 years old. He is having a party at the park this weekend and is quite excited.
School is out on Friday. With the few camps and activities that we have planned, summer feels like it is half gone. Lil'one can't stand the car, so it will be late summer, if at all, before we do any kind of car trip. Which is ok with me, I don't care to be in the car for more than 2 hours, anyway.
I cannot believe how the days have flown and I have nothing to share.
Must be the Momnesia.
