Use our themes or use your own - just let us know what is 'currently' up with you!
Be sure to stop by and say hello to the other blogger's linking up - especially my lovely co-host Lindsey from Ot & Et.
THIS WEEKS THEMES:
watching, searching, missing, growing, ignoring
I am currently watching Bea on the monitor. Two days ago she went from sleeping 8 hours without moving, to being a crazy tumbleweed that drifts around her crib, getting limps stuck in her crib bars, and screaming because she's stuck on her belly every two hours. When we're not trying to comfort her back to sleep, we're watching her tumble around on the monitor, hoping she figures out a way to get herself back to sleep (surprise! she doesn't).
Kris and I are currently searching realtor.ca. Not because we're looking to buy, but because I have an insatiable desire to peek into other people's homes (a.k.a - I'm nosy). Normally we just look at houses in our area, but the other night we fell into a dark hole of looking at multi-million dollar homes in Toronto and Vancouver. I honestly had no idea that there was even such a thing as an apartment that costs more than ten million. And someone please explain - why would you buy a ten million dollar apartment in downtown Toronto when you can buy an ISLAND in Muskoka for $7 million?
We are currently missing pictures of us as a family. Last week we realized that we have about 6 million pictures of the kids, a handful of Kris with the kids, one or two of me with the kids, and uh...none as a family of four? So after dinner on Sunday, while we were hanging out on the deck and the sun was going down, I ran and grabbed my camera, the tripod and did the whole "quick! Everyone together! Smile! SMILE!" We did this about a hundred times and ended up with one good picture (and a reminder that we should be doing this more often).
I am currently growing my hair - but only because I haven't been able to get away from Bea long enough to do anything. That's going to change next Tuesday because I finally got around to making myself an appointment. That gives me a little less than a week to decide what I'm going to do with it. Part of me wants to chop a significant amount off, but I've always been a chicken with my hair and will probably go with "the usual."
We are currently ignoring the weather forecast and heading north for a spontaneous camping trip this weekend. They're calling for rain and while camping in the rain with a baby and a four year old doesn't sound like much fun, I'm anxious to get up north and enjoy some time near the water before the summer is over (even if it is under an umbrella).
next weeks themes:
