30 Day Challenge 4 of 30

Day 4 of 30 From a high angle

This is what I get to look at every day while I'm making his lunch! So impatient!
In other new, he took 3 steps on his own yesterday. Hopefully soon - a walker!


30 Day Challenge 3 of 30

Oh geeze. Only day 3 & I've already messed up. I somehow skipped the 'clouds' prompt & realized it two days later. So coming up in two days: CLOUDS!

Day 3 of 30 Something green (supposed to be clouds)

My daughter cracks me up. I was starting to have concerns over her drawings especially after she drew the 'zombie baby w blood on it's head'. She later told me (after much nervous questioning) it was a baby wearing a mask of ketchup so the zombies didn't get her. It made me realize that art is not objective when you are a child. One questionable picture from your kid & you are quickly getting a call from the school counselor. Sigh. A friend reminded me not to be so anxious about the art & just embrace her creativity so that is what I'm trying to do. Since it's close to Halloween I guess this is her interpretation.

Day 2: What I wore

Today we went to Naha for the biggest tug of war in the world! I believe there were about 275,000 people there & I was so happy to get to see it up close this year. Two years ago, the first weekend we were on the island we went to the festival but didn't see a thing! Such a disapointment. This year we went w some friends & we all got to actually pull the rope too. I'm so happy we made it back there. It's always nice to see something from a new perspective. So today, this is what I wore: the baby in the Ergo. It got a little hairy there for awhile, in a crowd of 275,000. Luckily he never got too scared but this was pretty much the expression he had the whole time. haha

30 Day Challenge 1 of 30

Wow, remember that 365. Yeah, that was a great idea... until it wasn't. It's been like, forever since I posted a picture but my buddy is doing a 30 day challenge & since she will likely be the only person checking this out (Hi, Courtney) I told her I'd do it with her. It took me a couple of days to get started but here is Day 1.

Day 1: Self portrait, 17 wks pregnant


This isn't great but it was a lovely cloudy day here. Perfect for tricking me into thinking it's fall; not so great for taking pictures. I just shot this right inside my front door to get as much natural light behind me as I could. Hence, the bushes & trees. Plus, in an effort to make those vertical lines more vertical (which still aren't dead on) I had to cut off more of my shoulder than I wanted... Whose idea was it to stand against the door frame anyway??

We were watching my friend's girls overnight & this morning my husband got up & made them a full breakfast! Romanian pancakes, sausage, bacon & home made fried potatoes! This is a really terrible picture I realize, but I had to catch it. If you know my husband, this just gets him one step closer to making ours a family of 7.


Tonight we were invited over to some friend's house for a shrimp boil! Everything was super yum & it was a great evening.
