Busy busy busy!

So where the hell have I been all week?! Who would've known that I've actually been busy. And by busy, I mean doing more things than just taking care of William and cleaning my house.


So I'm just going to throw my whole week together in one post, because I'm cool like that. And because I can.

Let's start with InstaFriday, because from there I can go on to telling WTF I've been doing.

Top left: William on the way to Forchheim in Bayern, Germany. He was rockin' his new Rolling Stones tee that I bought from H&M last week. I thought it was a good steal at about 6 euros each. (He also has a KISS tee. haha. LOVE it!)

Top right: That would be what William eats now when he's not on the boob! Kid doesn't want to eat ANYTHING that is pureed anymore! He wants to feed himself. So that day I had cut up cucumbers and avocados into pieces that he could grab easily and "eat." I say "eat" because he only has his two bottom teeth, and none on top, so he can't really chew anything yet, but he loves to try!

Middle left: My lil' homey watching out the window this past Tuesday when we took the train into Dresden for the English speaking playgroup.

Middle right: The playgroup met at a playgroup this week because the weather was GREAT and it won't be for much longer. (boo.) And there was a baby swing! That's pretty awesome, because in the town where I live, I have yet to see one. Lil' homey LOVED it! 

Bottom left: This was after the playgroup. Lil' homey was pretty pooped from playing with the other kiddo's, in the swings and in the sand, he just needed to eat and pass out! So I fed him in the middle of the park and enjoyed the sun on my face and grass in my toes. His hat kept his face out of the sun, and kept the creepers from staring at he tits!

Bottom right: TEEFERS! I finally got a photo of his lil' teeth. SO adorable!

Let Them Eat Cake

So about my week: BUSY!

Last Saturday we drove to Berlin to pick up my brother-in-law from the airport. He lives in California but is here and staying with us for a couple months now (for reasons that I will not go into on my blog as it is his life, not mine). His plane was to land at 11:35 AM and we left the house with PLENTY of time to get there. What we didn't know, was that there would be a HUGE traffic jam on the freeway heading into Berlin due to a stupid construction and an accident. We were stuck in the traffic for 1.5 hours! O.M.G. We ended up getting there late but he was OK. Picked him up and headed home, which included another hour in the traffic on the way out. Oi!

Sunday we drove to Forchheim, Bayern (as mentioned above) to visit family. My BIL hasn't been back to Germany in 8 years, so it was time to see some family and friends. We threw him a little surprise BBQ with some friends at a park, and once again the weather was perfect.

Monday - I have NO idea what I did! But I obviously wasn't here! haha.

Tuesday was our English playgroup day in Dresden. It's about a 40 minute train ride from my town into Dresden, but it's really nice to talk with someone in English other than the husband and kids! And seeing William interact with other kids is priceless! I've made it a priority for me to go to the English playgroups at least once per week now.

Wednesday I had a German speaking playgroup at MY house! There were five other women from my town and their babies here and it was a blast! Again, watching William interact with the other babies is awesome. I really think that it's helping him develop more, especially verbally. When he's around other kids who babble ("talk"), he talks more, too. And for anyone who has a bilingual home, you would understand how important that is! It will most likely be longer for William to speak his first words because of the English/German mix at home, but I see progress already. And it's adorable.


  1. You are right, he's very adorable!!! And sounds like a busy, busy week. I finally had a bit of slower week this past week. I really needed that... we've been going, going, gone so much that it was getting crazy!!!

  2. He is just too cute! ... traffic can get just as crazy here and they are always working on the roads.

  3. William is such a handsome little guy. I miss my boys being babies. BTW, nominated you for the Versatile Blogger Award!
