Instagram, etc.

My iPod is my not-so-secret weapon for staying mildly productive with a newborn. One handed photo taking, photo editing and photo uploading--sweet. Plus I bought new shoes for Hudson, planned this weeks meals, made out the grocery list, answered Etsy convo's, copied down a crochet pattern (for whenever I happen to have TWO free hands), and started researching this summer's vacation destinations...all while nursing my sweet baby. Don't get me wrong, sometimes all I want to do is stare at his little face and his ever-growing cheeks : ). But I'm also grateful for technology, useful apps, and the ability to "window shop" at Anthropologie at 3:00am from my rocking chair.

And I'm grateful for great help. Jude is a pro at folding washcloths and can wield the kitchen sink sprayer like the best of them. He's good company in the kitchen as I get back to cooking and baking after a good long run of meals from friends (thanks, guys!)

Btw, if you're on Instagram, leave your user name in the comments and I will follow you. My user name is "arianarmstrong". Come find me! Or if you have any favorite apps that help make you more efficient, I'd love to hear about them!

Arian : )
