Not Me Monday



I do not wish for the sky to open & strike down the punk who allowed their dog to leave an elephant sized deuce on our lawn....which did not finally get shoveled into our toilet and clog it because it was so massive.....thanks a lot jerk.

I did not post a picture of my 200+ ounces of frozen breast milk on facebook....no way, that's weird...and displays what a freak of milk-making nature I have become.

I am not 100% bitter that my dinners are not even a little bit large. Nope....I am totally content with my wee front-side blessings & happy that I do not get to enjoy being a buxom mama....even if just for a year....or a few months.....what a colossal gyp.

I did not insist my daughters finish their Rice Crispies while I spooned large amounts of Nutella in my mouth....followed by a huge helpings Reddi Whip straight from the can. That would be a poor example & just mean.....mmmm.....best breakfast ever.....dairy & protein, right?

I did not tell my girls that if our goldfish don't die soon....then we will definitely need to "set them free" in a random pond outside....or flush them down the toilet.

I did not reach down my shirt at a stop sign & give each one of my milkers a slight squeeze to confirm which side had more and get an approximation of the ounce-age. I don't assess my jublees in public....that would be totally inappropriate.

I did not get caught doing previous stated action by a wide-eyed & confused pedestrian attempting to cross the street....to which my remark out the window was not "It's cool...breast cancer awareness....." and then speed away before allowing her to cross.

I did not tell Sofia that Mark's "knobber hangy thing" is comprised of extra elbow skin. Not me, that would be confusing....and a gross comparison.

After male acquaintance decided it would be nice to tell me "way to go....your face is waaaaay less swollen & huge" my eyes did not glaze over because I had stopped listening & was definitely not imagining myself happily punching him in the face over and over....and over and over.....till his face was swollen & huge. Not me, I am not a violent person. Idiot.

I did not forgot to wear breast pads & decide that stuffing Kleenex down my shirt was a great replacement....which did not result in a disgusting mess....as if someone TP'ed my baby feeding mountains...and then it rained milk....barf.

I did not lean Mark over & scrub his head sending a winter wonderland of cradle cap flakes snowing down....all over the ground in church. Nope not me....I totally understand that such actions would be totally gross.

I did not have an afternoon of severe stomach cramping because I spent the entire church service sucking in my belly.....no way, my clothes totally fit me just fine.

My kids are definitely not still in the their pajamas....at 1:15pm....on a Monday....because I am definitely not clicking away at the computer when I could be dressing them.

I did not just brush my teeth for the first time today. I always brush my teeth first thing in the morning.

The Last Year According to iPhone

Okay then....it's been quite awhile since I've posted to my blog...I miss it lots. Unfortunately my blog has taken the backseat....

A LOT has happened in the past year. We have officially been in our home just over a year....and I have officially owned an iphone 1 year. So while the quality of photos is not that of an SLR or anything....my phone is usually with me and therefore has been able to capture a lot of otherwise forgotten moments....and yes, most of the last ones are of Mark.


And yes, this is a crazy long post so feel free to skip over the videos & browse quickly through the pics. There are a ga-zillion videos so if they are not playing...then give your browser some time to load them all....sorry.

September 2009
The very first picture taken with my new phone. I think she looks so young!




Neither Peter nor I are good singers....so unfortunately I don't think it's in the cards for Sofia....



Proof that Stella does occasionally eat healthy food. She loves broccoli!!



The house was basically move-in ready. We've only painted the girls' room....Sofia helped me quite a bit....now it looks like the pink panther barfed everywhere.



Ahhhh....my Stell-Bell & her famous nightly dance....never gets old for me.




October 2009
Our first fall season in our new home. Sofia is just starting to play with the neighbor girls. 8 girls all under the age of 6.....all live next to each other....so fun.



Extreme leaf jumping....with the help of a mini trampoline



Need I say more?



Stella preparing for Trick or Treating with Nona.



Halloween 2009 - Trick or Treat!!
Yes, her outfit is on backwards....and yes, Nona DID get the previous video before she sent her out....hehehe



Annual Halloween party at the Bosschers....although now they live in Louisville....sad.





Sofia & I like to play the "No Laugh" game....whoever laughs first loses....she is really bad at it....but I maybe cheat....



Time to switch out the summer clothes with fall clothes!



First week of November 2009.....and this might also be how I informed my husband....why do it in person when you can send a picture text message?



The above picture occurred just days before our beer tasting party.....awesome....or not.



Peter's cousin Kyle comes for a very boring visit. I was preggo & colitis sick....and useless. I sent him to the park with Sofia while I napped on the couch....way to be a great host Rach.



Watching daddy play indoor



Sofia looks forward to the visit with Santa every year. Stella had issues with the creepy fat man in red.



Christmas 2009
Fia wanted to wear her Christmas dress every Sunday for a month.
Stella wanted to wear the Mardi Gras beads.....hmmm...



Just opened Christmas gifts from uncle Josh. Stella LOVED it!



Stella learns the pouty lip



Cold weather doesn't stop this mover!



Peter goes on a skiing trip every winter with his dad....the girls miss him lots so we send him video messages when he is away....



Dancing with daddy




Our first winter in our first home!




Stella's first winter where she was able to actively play outside




It's official....documented here. I think this is one of Peter's favorites....




We made gingerbread cookies!! They were completely inedible....barf.




Three is better than one!
Gotta love my Stell-Bell



Sofia reads a letter she wrote to me.
This is my favorite video....ever....the reasons why should be obvious...




It's a tea party & you're NOT invited....there were no more hats left.



Stella's hair finally grows long enough to braid. Sofia was born with this much hair....Stella was nice & bald till this past year.



I'm very attractive when I want to be....



Sometimes we have salon night & the girls get curlers



February 2010 - Baby bump starts to show



Taught art last school year. This was one of the projects. We did lines.





Sofia gets glasses. I've never had an eye exam so this was a new experience for me too.



Sofia ice skates for the first time.



Hot cocoa after a family day filled with ice skating & a chilly downtown walk.



One of hundreds of pictures that Sofia colors for me. Peter has a largish head....



Sofia LOVES games. We have accumulated several board & card games this past year.



Stella wore her crown from uncle Josh for several months



One of our fish (from Christmas) finally died. We will have 3 of 6....ugh, why won't they die?!?



We love to go to Centerpointe mall.



2 for $1 at Goodwill!



Looks like Stella will be a lion for Halloween this year....



We got a digital piano.



Peter took the girls to the Big Bug exhibit



This is what happens when we get overzealous with the sprinkles



We went on a full day date for Sofia's 5th birthday. We went to a movie and an indoor water park. It was so fun & I'm so glad she wanted to share her day with us.



Sometimes Sofia gets a little dusty with sidewalk chalk....



Stella is not a good sleeper....she gets so wound up & then just passes out....in weird positions....



Another girl salon night


The result



Girls...Sofia wants to take dance lessons....she's such a natural....or not.



Family trip to Home Depot to do the free workshop....butterfly houses!


Sofia upgrades to a larger bike



June 2010: I had a MASSIVE garage sale....I was 8 months pregnant & Peter was out of town....I'm a idiot. I will never have another garage sale again.



Sofia & neighbor friend Madelyn had a lemonade & cookie stand. They EACH made $12!!



I love sales.



We frequently make the coffee table into a fort....complete with flashlights, snacks, & story time.



The last few weeks before D-day.....I kept my overweight preggo self inside our freezing house. My girls always wanted to be outside & play in the sauna....so I had to document the few times I made it outside with them.




Poolside....who needs a pool membership when you have this?



The newest family member



Kisses



Kinda looks like a girl....but still love him!




Our door is always dirty and gross....this might be the reason why....



Gun show



Mark has a long toe just like his mama! Sometimes it's the little things in life that make me smile....



Stella loves her baby brother



This was our main summer entertainment....bathing suits & a sprinkler


Stella was trying to show me that she had a huge gash on chin that was spurting blood....and therefore DESPERATELY needed a band-aid. I'm not sure how band-aids make pain go away...but they do for Stella.



Ice cream on the front stoop was a very frequent treat this past summer.



I tried to phase out Stella's nap in an attempt to end her 10pm fall asleep time....sometimes I have the worst ideas.



What would I do without this girl??




I am a milk making freak. This is about 3 weeks worth of extra milk. I have since found several people that want my liquid gold donations. My current recipient is an adopted baby girl in Baltimore who has allergies to all formula. So glad that I can help another baby.




Nice pick Stella



Washing a baby in a bucket



Stella's first Chicago Fire soccer game....courtesy of K Sheldon! Shout out. We all had a blast.



Sofia's 2nd Fire game.



Stella felt that Mark should be a princess because being a princess is fun. Peter was NOT happy about this picture....



Smiles!



A baby gift basket by NamHee Designs for a dear friend



Mark's favorite thing to do....let's hope he's not a total narcissist when he's older.



Mark occasionally finds his thumb & will soothe himself back to sleep....I just wish he would do this all the time.



Stella loves most anything that doesn't fit and looks obnoxious. This past Saturday it was a hat 4 times to large for her....



Mark is a very happy baby....can you tell?



Mark is finding his voice
