the power of the shirt

so, these are from a couple weeks ago...behold the power of suggestion as displayed with:

the maternity shirt. 

I call them:

is she, or isn't she?


would you look at that glow!

taken on the same day a couple weeks ago by my wonderful hubby.  15 weeks at time of photo.  due Aug. 17, 2011.

(you have no idea how hard it was not to "suck it in.")  :)

and now: a temporary cognisance of location

so apparently you need to be pathetic enough to blog about your lost camera and then it will magically appear the next day. 

*sigh*  so ridiculous.

well, I am now experiencing the "perfect storm" concerning my camera...all the pieces have aligned and are in place!  The battery is fully charged and I have the battery charger, the USB cable and the camera...all in known locations.

proof of possesion.

a temporary non-cognisance of location

Growing up, dad never lost anything.
He would never say that we were lost while driving.
His keys were never lost.
Nor his glasses.

He was merely experiencing a
Temporary Non-cognisance of Location.

Well, I'm wondering when "temorary non-cognisance of location" becomes truly and simply "lost."

I've had a TNL (temporary non-cognisance of location) concerning my camera for a few weeks now.
I know, I know, I should really put a leash on that thing.  I've checked all the usual places as well as  a few not so usual.

~jacket pocket

~couch cushions

~behind couch (elijah's favorite "hiding place" for mommy's things)
~ridiculously mess craft and guest room

and some not so normal places:
~behind washer
~under couch
~behind tv
~inside the dvd shelves

So, that is why my posts have been lacking.  I like to have pics available for my viewing audience.  oh well, here are a few old ones.

my super crunchy cloth diaper from last summer...notice I am holding it at the bottom and it is able to stay upright.

Elijah's favorite "aat"  hat.

Sydney sleeping on the baby gym.  This is also last summer, Sydney has been nuk-free since December.  whew!

The bane of wayne's existance last summer, removing the clothes line pole.
