Saturday photos

You guys, I had all day to blog yesterday. I was sick, stayed home from work, resisted the temptation to check work emails even. But did I blog? Nooooo. Instead, I Christmas shopped online and didn’t buy anything.


Here’s photos from Saturday. We went to The Habit, which is our Saturday, uh, habit.




Video: Hazel is 2 months old and mad at hiccups

I went back to work on October 30, and the blog is definitely suffering! I still need to post about my dad’s visit (late October), our trip to the aquarium (later October), and Hazel at 2 months old (last Saturday).

So to tide you over, here’s a video of Hazel. I was trying to get some cute footage of her “talking” but instead she got the hiccups and started complaining. (Isn’t that always what happens when a parent hits the record button?) At least she gives a couple of little smiles in the beginning.

13 cousins

Two Sundays back, we went to a church service where Kyle’s brother Joel and his family were leading worship. We stopped for a bite to eat on the way, hit some traffic, and got there 20 minutes late. It was over. Sad face. But the kids did get to see 10 of their cousins, and the Kilpatrick Family Band played one more song at the end of the service.

Messy morning

Kyle and Hazel and I were lazily hanging out in bed one day last week, when I heard noises in the kitchen. Adelaide and August were up to something. “Ugh, will you see what’s going on?” I asked Kyle. “It sounds like they spilled the bag of rice on the floor.”

It wasn’t a bag of rice. It was a bag of beef jerky, packages of instant oatmeal, popcorn kernels, and several games and puzzles that we store in the pantry for some reason.

Seriously, kids? Not cool.

Hazel and Zelda

Hazel-and-ZeldaAdelaide placed her favorite stuffed animal in the car seat with sleeping Hazel.

And yes, you may have noticed I use the car seat a lot for naps. She seems to sleep better in there than on the bed most days. Someone should make a sitting-up sleeper for babies. Like an infant rocking chair. Hm, I guess that’s why people buy bouncers…
