Mothering, making, and generally blathering on

Almost one month May 7, 2008

Filed under: Personal — bonniep @ 9:11 pm

The time is flying by. Little M has a bit of a cold right now, poor kid. I was going to do a post on my average day…but realized that would be the most boring post ever. Even more boring than my normal posts.

Since I am me, I had a whole list of goals for my so-called "time off"–start shooting in RAW, learn Lightroom, get better with Photoshop, re-learn to sew and knit, get C on a better schedule, start cooking more, etc. etc. And of course, every day keep the baby healthy, happy, and secure.

So far…I have started knitting a scarf and playing with some Photoshop actions that I bought an embarrassingly long time ago:

My images are so all going to be vignetted going forward.

Oh, and we started putting C to bed an hour earlier (possible because we are able to eat dinner an hour earlier) and she still sleeps until the same time in the morning. A whole new hour at night!

Other than that, pretty much just keeping the baby healthy, happy, and secure. Except for that cold. Damn. I have been keeping up the laundry at least–no small task with a super spitter up kiddo, and cloth diapering!

C continues to crack us up:

Example 1: "Daddy! You forgot that I don’t like turkey. Well, I like the turkey that comes from a pig, just not the turkey that comes from a turkey."

Example 2: *warning: do not read this one if you/your wife have not already given birth, as it exposes truths that you need not know about before then* She likes to grab my post baby tummy and squeal "Oh, I love this chubby tummy! It is so chubby and cute! I just love this tummy! Are you pregnant mommy? [pauses] I am just kidding!" [This one cracks me up on the days it doesn’t make me burst into tears, but G sure thinks it is funny.]
