7 Quick Takes Friday (Vol. 27)

7 quick takes sm1 7 Quick Takes Friday (vol. 144)


1) I would just like to point out that this is my 27th quick takes and 27 is one of my favorite numbers. It's awesome for many reasons. To start 27 is odd, and odd numbers make me happy. It's also an awesome number because it's my age, but really that's just a coincidence - I've been a fan of the number for a while. I think 27's biggest claim to fame, however, is the fact that it's a perfect cube (3^3), and perfect cubes are just awesome.

2) Joseph is getting more and more squirmy. He's figuring out how to move around and get where he wants to go little by little. Evidence of said squirminess:
I want. the. ball.
Just chillin' while mom eats breakfast.
3) My hair has been falling out at an amazing rate lately. I knew this was going to happen sooner or later, but it's still a little disconcerting. Hair seems to be everywhere. Maybe it's time to get pregnant again so my hair will stop falling out....just kidding - for now anyway :)

4) This week Joseph and I have been sick. That means we've been cooped up in the house trying not to spread our germs. I've run a few small errands, but nothing major and we had to skip out on a few social outings - story time, visiting a friend who recently had a baby, and mom's group. I can't wait for us to both recover so we can get back into a normal routine and see people!


5) Joseph went on the swing for the first time this week. He seemed to enjoy it. Here's a short clip of him swinging.


6) I saw this on Facebook and it took me far too long to figure out. How long will it take you?

7) Here's a video that's been going around for a few weeks. I really liked it so I figured I'd repost it here. The guy in the video does a great job drawing parallels between the Holocaust and abortion. If you have the time it's definitely worth watching, but be forewarned - there are some graphic images from the Holocaust shown.

We have that same little duck outfit for our baby! So cute!

Took me forever to find the mistake, I almost gave up!

I'm the loser who can't find the mistake... LOL...don't have time to obsess all day!

That picture of him sliding out of the bouncer makes me laugh. I have so many pictures like that. They always *look* so uncomfortable! :)

I also lose shocking amounts of hair after I deliver. It's awful. Each time it happens I'm positive I'm going to go bald. I haven't- yet- and I'm currently pregnant with number six.
But you know what they say about famous last words and all...

This is my first time here, through Conversion Diary. Your baby is adorable.

It took me a minute, but I found the mistake!

I think I'm going to end up with perma-bangs from losing my hair with each baby. It's no surprise why moms cut their hair so short! It's to mask the flyaways!!

We missed you two at mom's group! And you might have to be the next one pregnant. The newcomer Stacy is Nov. I'm Feb. Carmen is March. Amy is April. Carrie is May/June. Grace said no way it won't be her ;)

I always loose tons of hair after I have my babies. If you can get a nice haircut. Nothing too crazy but cut a few inches off and it will do wonders to your hair falling out. It was the one thing that always makes a huge difference! Crazy I know but it works. If you can't fathom a drastic cut maybe trim? I have to say your brain teaser took a lot longer than it should have.lol. Your son is gorgeous!!! God bless him and you all!

Michael said...

Ok someone may have to explain the brain teaser to me....

If you're having trouble with the brainteaser try reading it out loud. That's how I eventually figured it out :)
