Here’s what’s up for the newbies – Every so often I squish all my Instagram pics together into a grouping to give like an instant snapshot of recent Bower life. Then I pick my favorite three and give them very valuable and desirable awards. Actually they mean nothing. But the point is to share little snippets…and maybe the story behind them…so that I don’t forget (heaven knows pregnancy brain is a real thing and I caught a real bad case of it!).
Oh and just in case anyone is wondering…at year’s end, I plan on putting them all together in a photo book. It’ll be our InstaYear
Bronze medal goes to the snapshot of Will at the beach with his Grammy. Last Instadump, I shared how Will & I headed down to Destin with Jer’s Dad and Stepmom…and I was missing Jeremy like a Survivor contestant misses calories. Will was especially needy and clingy…and it took a couple days for him to warm up. The moment he started playing with his Grammy without me present, it was like a breathe of fresh air. fresh ocean and sunscreeny air.
It was a close call but second place goes to the bridge back to reality. We left Destin and it was bittersweet. I loved being there after Jer arrived…and let’s just be honest…I was happy to get back to life. Oh and this is beautiful. even if it is a road.
Gold Medal goes to the freckles! Hands down…no questions asked. Those little cheek dots get gold every single time
Quite obviously our life revolves around trucks, cars, motorcycles and any other type of motorized vehicle. When we are in the car, the only thing that can rip his eyes off the Barney video is the rumble of a Harley or the blur of yellow. The day we got stuck at the light while the school buses pulled out of the parking lot with their students in tow was like the most exciting trip to the supermarket ever. We yelled and clapped and celebrated each one….all twenty three of them. Neighboring cars probably thought we just won the lottery.
Second place goes to the bump…this baby is crazy active. like I’m kinda afraid of his hand or foot punching through my skin kinda active. and apparently he likes my belly button. maybe he thinks that’s the way out. Go south honey.
Oh and this was probably the last time I could paint my toenails…now the bump is so big that putting on socks is a thirty minute chore.
Gold rocks! No literally – the rocks get the grand prize…just simply for giving Will so much joy. He throws himself down as a joke #Idon’tgetit
I’d love for you to join in on the fun….I’m ‘bowerpowerblog’ and I’d love to see you all over there

p.s. I just figured out how to do multiple filters on a single instagram photo! Super easy! Just switch your phone to airplane mode before starting…then apply the first filter, hit done like you are gonna post it and it will fail (airplane mode=no wifi) but will save the filtered image to your gallery. Then just repeat with as many filters until you like the final result! When you want to post it – switch airplane mode back to OFF and do the norm. Instant multi-filters!
