I've realized that I am spreading myself too thin, internet-wise.  I open the computer at night, and am behind on everything.  Email and photos might (might) get checked-up and backed-up, but Hal is not a sleepy sleeper kind of kid and usually needs me a lot in the evening.  So I've been a little more addicted to my one-hand-friendly iPhone than I'd like. I have been telling all of my stories here and there, on instagram (I'm @swonderland, follow me!) or through twitter direct messages (I'm @swonderful, follow me!) or to myself as I fall asleep at night (I wish I could project those thoughts to a username, but that hasn't been invented yet.)

I have some really cool things in the works, for this blog, including something really really exciting early next week, so get ready and watch out.

And in the meantime, here is this... uh, instagram round-up, of sorts.  This is where I've been and what I've been doing.  Bits and pieces. 

-
I painted a wall in my kitchen with chalkboard paint, totally on a whim.  A random manic whim.  I regret it.

-
Happy six months, H.

They look so sweet, but they're saying things like, "I'm gonna whip you in the head!" and, "You're going in the dungeon."

Clark:  Actually, Alice, it says if you aren't careful that you will totally die.

Alice: I like matching, matching is fun.

the very cute but not very sleepy baby boy

alice drives the bus to the hotel.  clark backseat drives, and tells her to slow down.

We were totally out of food so Luke stopped at the store.  He came home with corndogs.  The kids didn't know what to think.  "I like my. . .  popsicle," Alice said.  "My popsicle is like a hamburger!"

  1. I can't believe how big Hal is getting! I haven't seen him since he was, like, 2 days old! Oh my. I do love Instagram.

  2. Even though I'd seen many of these via your other internet presences, I love them all together, and I somehow missed a couple the first time around. Oh so wonderful. I wish Wes & Hal could hang out and crawl all over each other and be non-sleepy evening babies together (Wes is one of those 'need ya in the evenings a lot' babies, too). Or, even better, they could be awake happy little daytime baby boys.

  3. Oh I have missed your blog, but heaps happening in New Zealand with a devastating earthquake in Christchurch 5 hours drive from my home. A total of 163 have bodies have been found so far but still about 80 odd people still missing. Buildings down everywhere through the central business district. The second earthquake there in five months but this one is much worse as it was lunch time. I really have been made aware of how jolly lucky I am and to appreciate every day with my beautiful safe and happy family. I am glad you are back and look forward to future readings on your blog. I love the comments of your little ones, God Bless and take care xx.

  4. Great pictures! I love the imaginary games, too. Even if they are saying nasty things.

  5. Hey, I (er, I mean Tim, at my instruction one Saturday) painted a wall in my kitchen with chalkboard paint!
    Only I don't regret it.
    Was it too much?

  6. Oh! Why do you regret painting the chalkboard wall? I've been thinking of doing an entryway hall in chalkboard paint but now I want to know why you don't like it...?

  7. Inquiring minds want to know: why the regret? We're thinking of s section of a kitchen wall in chalkboard paint too. Now I'm nervous!

    And my husband would come home from the store with the same thing. Plus the biggest bucket of the cheapest "ice cream" he could find.

  8. Your kids are so cute!

    Also, what's not to like about the chalkboard paint? Maybe you'll grow to love it? Hope so!

    And "Popsicle like a hamburger"? Hee.

  15. ezra needs me a lot at night, too. it's been the most chaotic time of day over here. hal is six months old already?? i can't believe it. he looks so much like alice to me. and i love your instagram pictures. they always make me smile. if you're ever awake late, and want someone to skype and nurse with, i'm usually sitting up nursing in front of some old television show. i love your blog, erin. i feel like you and i are so similar. i hope you do, too. if you don't, i'd kinda feel like an idiot for saying that. xoxox

  16. the popsicle thing made me laugh out loud. & then i had to come back & read it again later to laugh out loud again.

    i'm sure the chalkboard wall looks wonderful. i'm sad for you that you don't like it, though. there's nothing like working hard on a home improvement project & having it turn out nothing like you expected. :(

    & for those of you considering chalkboard paint...we have several walls in our house that are painted with regular (high quality, wipeable) latex paint that we write on with chalk & erase with no problem. as long as it's a satin finish, you're good to go!

  18. Love this little collage of images.

    My favorite part was about the "dungeons" and the "whips." My girls totally say stuff like that too.
