Living: So Much To Do, So Little Time

Whew! This weekend went by in the blink of an eye. Somehow I’m still recovering from it. I have so many things I want to talk about! Finding the time to get it all out of my head and onto the screen is my problem. Here are some quick updates:


We took my little guy to the Baltimore Aquarium on Saturday. He commandeered the camera, leaving us with great shots like these: 

My baby bump:


Our lower legs:

My hubby’s wedding ring: 

The lower halves of people we don’t know: 

True gems, I tell ya. We finally had to put the camera away and didn’t get it out to capture any images of us as a family. Don’t worry, though, the memories will live on in my head. 

Baby Girl Long is still staying put and hasn’t shown much interest in joining us. If she was awake to hear the tone of my voice when putting my little guy in a time out yesterday, she just might stay put for a few more weeks. Since my guy came early, I’ve been ready for weeks now, but I’m trying to remain patient. I keep reminding myself that she’ll come when she is ready. 


I’m using these last few days/weeks/hopefully not a whole month to get a jump start on a couple of projects I have in the works. It is nice not to have a crunch right now and working ahead feels great. I have about 15 freelancing blog posts floating around in my head and even made a list so I don’t forget them. I hope to get them written up this week. 


I’ve been using every spare minute to squeeze in as much reading as I can. I know I won’t have much time for novels after Baby Girl arrives, so I want to pack it in now. I’ve finished some great books over the past few weeks and can’t wait to tell you about them. The problem is, the books are keeping me away from the computer! It is quite the Catch 22. But, I do plan to share the details on my latest favorites soon! 

Thanks for catching up with us! I hope you all had a great Memorial Day.

  1. Those pictures reminded me that our little guys have a totally different perspective on the world and why is it so important to get down to their level when we talk to them.

    Come on Baby Girl Long – make your appearance – you won’t get put in timeout for at least a few years yet!!

  2. It is so true Jamie! I thought of that when I was looking at the pictures. It is sometimes easy to forget that he spends most of his time looking at bellies and legs. It also reminded me of why he still likes for us to pick him up or to ride on his daddy’s shoulders.

  3. Love It!! I have a polaroid (ooohh that dates me!) picture that Jason took of his own head when he reached up on the dresser for the camera…we always laughed, but it is such a great reminder of their view!
