Today feels very much like an intermediate sort of day. The day between not having money and having money (maybe?) (hopefully?). The day after my “little” girl turns 9 months old (THREE MONTHS LEFT, ZOMG). The day before my blog turns 4 years old. (Four? Really? Sometimes it feels like one, sometimes it feels like ten.) The cusp of Christmas. The calm before the storm (that had better leave us some snow this time, for pity’s sake). The end of the weekend but the start of vacation. Gosh, look at me waxing poetic here.
I ended up submitting photo #3 to the contest last night. It ended up with the most votes between this blog, Cloth Diaper Mamas,the goodmama forum on Diaper Swappers and even Twitter. It was actually a really tight vote though. As of the time I submitted, #3 had 9 votes, #2 and #1 both had 7 and #4 had 1. I think the reason that #4 was “shut-out” was because, though adorable, it didn’t contain the unrestrained joy and the interesting-ness of the other three. It was a REALLY tough call, but I feel good with the picture I submitted. It shows not only the diaper, but the tree in the background and since the photo would be posted to the site later on this week, just in time for Christmas, it was appropriately festive.
So a huge THANK YOU to everyone who gave me their vote. I really appreciated it because no way I could have picked on my own.
My laptop continues it’s steep downward spiral into the bowels of hell. Oh Dell. How the mighty have fallen. Dell sucks, ya’ll. And I’m not afraid to say that. My “g” will probably cease all function in the next day or so since the little green “thingie” that allows me to press it is threatening to fall off once and for all. And once that happens, I plan to chuck this thing into a snow-drift. (Of course, I only wish I could do that. Alas, I cannot.)
Come on tax return! Mama needs a Macbook!
Wanna see some pictures? Of course you do.
See this diaper? This is my new best friend. I love it so. It’s called “Wild Child“. It’s going under the tree for me Evie.
I love a good picture of a crying baby. This is the same “Baby’s First Christmas” outfit that we got for Liam. The difference is that Liam swam in it and Evie barely fits. But you know, whatever works!
Luckily, she got over her ire and proceeded to entertain us with her “nose thing”. Gosh, I love that face.
I was trying to achieve some nice “bokeh” in the background and a) my camera sucks and b) I need more lights or something. Whatever. It’s more blurry than bokeh but it works, I guess. I’ll keep working on it!
Can someone tell me why there’s a dent in the middle of this fingernail? Cuz it kinda freaks me out.
Okay, that’s enough from me today. I’ll be back tomorrow with some grand blog-iversary festivities. Which means: a post about how this blog is now four years old. WEE!
