Life in Instagram, week 1

Hello friends!
Let me start by saying
thanks to all of you who still read my little blog.
I'm trying to get back into it more regularly
and I have a new found respect for all the mommy bloggers out there.
How do you find the time?
I currently have 8 pounds of sweetness with a full belly & a dry diaper
resting on my lap and I'm finding a few minutes to put something together.

This weekend, I finally got on board with the rest of the world and upgraded to an IPhone.
And? I'm already obsessed. 
I have to admit, the Instagram app was one main reason I wanted the IPhone so badly.
I love taking photos,
but having my DSLR strapped to my shoulder is no longer practical.
And now, more than ever, I need something convenient to capture the every day.

Here is a little glimpse into our laid back weekend.
  •  My snuggly little girl. Birdie hat + bunny lovie...melts my heart.
  • SNOW! The view from our living room. Our first really good snow of the year and it's almost February. Can't beat the still beauty of a fresh coat of the white stuff.
  • Seriously, the cheeks. They are getting chubbier and I just want to eat.her.up.
  • Saturday night take out dinner date complete with scratch off lotto tickets..and my first sushi roll in about 10 months! Delish.
  • Tummy time wore her out.
  • My Sunday morning view, a party on our bed.
  • Shopping with mommy & daddy. She is already a good little shopper :)
  • My new iphone obviously needed a pretty cover.
  • He loves his little girl.
  • Smiles mid nap. I could {and do} stare at her

haha! I completely understand, fellow newbie-mama! blogging between naps and feedings and diaper changes and etcetcetc. Lots of one-handed typing going on these days. And lots of "nothing to do with blog" days. I wouldn't have it any other way:-) xoxo
