Tag: Jude

Move it, Move it!

Google Photos has a new (to me) feature that will auto-enhance some of the pictures you upload if the software detects certain characteristics. One of the enhancements is animated GIFs … these are some of the ones that completely cracked me up!

The girl’s personality clearly lends itself to animated GIFs!

Advice to a Newborn (in the form of a song)

Day 2 of the July Challenge (morning of Day 4 – I’m catching up!):

If you could offer any advice to a newborn, what would it be?

Sleep when your mother sleeps. Hahahaha!

I choose to answer this question in the form of songs I’ve picked for my three babies …

For Seth:

“Little darling, it’s been a long, cold, lonely winter

Little darling, it feels like years since it’s been here …

Here comes the sun … here comes the sun! and I say,

It’s all right …”

Here Comes the Sun, The Beatles

For Nora:

“Open up your plans and [then] you’re free,

Look into your heart and you’ll find

The sky is yours …”

I’m Yours, Jason Mraz

For Jude:

“And anytime you feel the pain, hey Jude, refrain

From carrying the world upon your shoulders.

For well you know that it’s the fool who plays it cool

By making his world a little colder.”

Hey, Jude, The Beatles (of course)

 

Hey, Jude …

So I wrote about my pregnancy with Jude when he was almost a month old. I meant to write about his birth for that first month milestone, but obviously that didn’t happen! A lot of other things did happen … we closed on the new house, we moved, we started unpacking and sorting and organizing, and now I’m back to work. Boo. So while I’m trying to not think about being back to work, I’m going to head back to December 25 and write up Jude’s birth story!

It’s a long one, so the story is after the jump …
