Busy

Though my (dismal) productivity at work is not to blame, I've felt so busy lately. Summer is almost over, and Scott will be starting night classes 5 nights a week in August. This means I will need to either go to work early so I can leave early, be super productive when I'm there, or plan on working at night after Clara goes to bed. Not a big deal, but I need a serious motivational kick in the rear to get there. In the meantime, we're getting ready to go to the beach and getting ready to put our house on the market sometime this fall.  I only think I'm busy now!

Mommy loves me so much that she's willing to show her frizzy weekend
hair to the world so you can see a cute picture of me swinging.
 Clara has started napping better during the day and also sleeping even longer at night. She always sleeps at least 11 hours overnight now.  This sounds great in theory, but it means I spend even less time with her, which is lame to the max. I've slacked badly on picture-taking as of late, and on organizing/printing her photos. I haven't touched her baby book in months. It's hard to commit time to those things that I could spend hanging out with her, and when she's asleep, I'm usually doing something else like blogging or planning her birthday party for January (embarrassing but true). 

 My stroller fan can't cool me down because I have my
hands in it all the time.
 So sadly, I only have a couple of photos from this past week.  I promise to reform!  We're probably going to move away from spoon-feeding purees and try some baby-led-weaning soon, so that should provide lots of interesting (and funny) photographic and video evidence for the blog. Oh, and I must capture how well she's sitting up now for y'all. It makes me so proud and sad at the same time!

Hope you're all having a great week!

Baby books....ha! I made myself take a video of each baby on the date of their birth each month....now video tapes are passe. Keep to some kind of schedule of taking pics of Clara.... all the extras are fun. Enjoy that sweet baby.

You two are so cute! I feel so behind with picture taking and organization too. And I JUST got a baby book - and have already forgotten so much! So sad.

I am excited to hear about your adventures in baby led weaning! We are making rice cereal this weekend - very exciting!
