The return of the prodigal Mac

After a week of being laptop-less and having to sit upright at the desktop to do all my online shopping and Facebook stalking, our Apple is back home and on my stomach, where it belongs.  It was having a few minor issues like NOT WORKING, so we decided to get it checked out and while doing so also decided to upgrade the memory and hard drive capacity.  You know what that means: more navel-gazing movies about my life set to sappy music are coming your way!

The first thing I did when the laptop returned to us (after killing the fatted calf, obv.) was upload the 32094024 pictures I took in its absence.  And for most people this would mean that the list of blog post ideas would now be a mile long, each one with its own photo flourish at the end.  But I am much like, oh, I don’t know, a young boy on his fourth birthday, who when asked if he’d like to open his presents one at a time throughout the day to prolong the pleasure or if he’d like to open them all at once right now doesn’t hear the end of the question for all the furious ripping of pretty paper off of boxes.  That’s a stupidly complicated way to say: HERE ARE A WHOLE BUNCHA MA PICTURES ALL AT ONCE:

Bug still digs having a sister, LG’s still experimenting with hair products:

Fleece jammies produce static

I still love these peeps (a LOT):

Two people I love, both smiling

LG is still eating:


Relatedly, Bug is pretty much burst open proud about getting to feed her:

The way to a woman’s heart is through her stomach

I decided to reunite with my bangs, we missed each other:


Bug became increasingly blurrier in photographs the closer his birthday came due to the Excitement Vibrations he constantly emitted:

Four year olds are blurry

LG started smiling awholeheckofa lot (Will there be more documentation of this coming soon? OH I BELIEVE THERE WILL.):

Grinny McGrinnerson

So there you go!  A hot mess of pictures. I will try to practice moderation from now on.  But I’m promising nothing.

Does anyone ever tell you that Bug bears a striking resemblance to a younger Haley Joel Osment?

Pictures are good, although I always enjoy your prose which frequently reaches the level of hilarity. However, your camera work is also excellent.
