Mommy Wants Vodka

…Or A Mail-Order Bride

The Obligatory Picture Post


So, last night in a fit of mad organizational skillz, I had The Daver help me to import some of our old pictures onto my Mac, something I’ve been meaning to do well, forever now. And what kind of blogger would I be without sharing?

(Oh, LOOKIT THAT, I finally joined the 21st century and got a Flickr account that I somehow need to add to my sidebar because I am totally adding additional pictures almost daily! Bonus! They’re all almost the same!)

Here’s Ben at his 3rd birthday party and holy shit does he look young. Damn, do I feel old now.

Daver rarely makes a photographic appearance here because he’s extremely un-photogenic. Just ask him. Oh wait, I just did. And he said “I’m really un-photogenic.”

I also rarely put my pictures up here. Why? Because I’ve been pregnant and/or nursing and thereby whale-like (La Leche League lied when they said breastfeeding would remove the pounds effortlessly). So you normally see older pictures of me if any. But don’t worry. I’m going to bring sexy back and get this weight off. Promise.

Also: am I high here? I THINK SO.

Here’s a trick: Which one of my kids is this?

Wait, the yellow might give it away. Oh well.

But who is THIS?

Okay, you win. Those were both Alex. So you’ll know THIS face from the acne and pink and bruising.

    Great pics! I’m trying to lose the post-pregnancy weight too. I lost about 10 pounds while Carter was in the NICU, but now I’m at a stand still. If you find something that works let me know!

    “Also: am I high here? I THINK SO.” Aren’t you always?!

    Love the pics. You do make some cute babies!

    You and your babes are wicked hot. And I’m so glad you’re including some pics now! It makes me feel like less of a crazy person if my “imaginary blog friends” (as my mother calls them) have faces.

    Plus, who doesn’t like to ogle over adorable baby sweetness?

    Dang woman! How did you stay so tan?

  5. On March 5th, 2009 at 1:12 pm Jenn Says:

    Yay for photos! You look lovely, very un-whale-like. xoxo

    Pictures! I love them. You two are adorable and make equally adorable children. I ain’t lying.

    LLL are total liars, I didn’t lose weight until I stopped pumping and was only nursing once a day. Of course it probaly didn’t help that nursing made me so hungry I ate everything I could get my grubby little hands on.

    All of those are lovely pictures.

    great pics!

  10. On March 5th, 2009 at 2:33 pm Betty M Says:

    Very cute babies!

    Great pics! I’d like to know the answer to the tan question…fess up sister!

  12. On March 5th, 2009 at 2:45 pm lola Says:

    Yeah, you look way too tan and high. How might we have accomplished that? And you don’t look whale-like at all. You look hot and tan!

  13. On March 5th, 2009 at 3:33 pm Trina Says:

    Very cute family!! BUT… if you think you look like a whale, you really need some therapy LOL. You look great and I can only wish I looked that good.

    The Davver looks like that guy on the office – John K…..something, plays a character named Jim, engaged to the receptionist named Pam. He was also in that movie with Robin Williams, where he’s the man that has to go through couples’ counseling before Robin Williams would officiate at his wedding.
    If you can stay awake to watch, it’s on NBC tonight at 8 EST, must be 7 PM your time. If not, you can watch an episode online.

    In the pic where you look high, you look nice. But are you wearing makeup in a hospital? Wow.

  16. On March 5th, 2009 at 4:18 pm amy Says:

    Finally, faces to put with the names!!!! You have such a beautiful family, and for someone who is, um…how shall I say…”rude & crude” you are freaking hot! So glad you shared.

    P.S. The Daver is a cutie;)

  17. On March 5th, 2009 at 4:21 pm Maria Says:

    Um. Dude?

    Your husband is HOT.

    Also, YOU are hot.

    You’ve been hiding this from us for far too long.

  18. On March 5th, 2009 at 4:52 pm Betts Says:

    The Daver has a look that say, “Do you think my armpits smell?” But he’s a fox, nonetheless. You look beautiful. I was expecting more of a biker chick look… you know, the look to match the mouth.

  19. On March 5th, 2009 at 4:59 pm mandy Says:

    beautiful beebies and OM goodness Aunt Becky-you are a stunner!
    I forget how pretty you are till I see a pic of you every 6 mo or so. 😉

  20. On March 5th, 2009 at 6:41 pm Stacey Says:

    see, when you said un-photogenic I was thinking like vampires (or is it werewolves?) that don’t show up on film. It’s nice to see faces

    LLL is full of shit. I put on 15lbs while nursing because I was craving fatty foods the whole freaking time.

  21. On March 5th, 2009 at 8:11 pm Io Says:

    I would just like to state for the record that both you and the Daver are the hotness.

  22. On March 6th, 2009 at 6:07 am birdpress Says:

    Was that pic of you in a hospital? Why the sunglasses on your head? Oh yeah, I guess from all the UV rays they apparently have in the hospital now, judging by that tan everyone keeps commenting on. You look great. And I love baby pics!

  23. On March 6th, 2009 at 6:19 am Badass Geek Says:

    I am un-photogenic, too. I much prefer to take the pictures.

  24. On March 6th, 2009 at 7:23 am kim Says:

    Thanks for the pics, how fabulous. And if this is a photo of you right after bearing a child, you can suck it, Aunt Becky. My youngest is 8 and I still have 28 lbs to go. 🙂

    You were too darn tan in that photo to have that be taken in the winter. Unless you were doing pregnancy spray tan or something. Do you think that is a thing. I think I might invest in that or something.

  26. On March 6th, 2009 at 8:21 am SCY Says:

    You’re like totally HAWT 😉

    Gorgeous pics – thanks for sharing!


  27. On March 6th, 2009 at 9:13 am magpie Says:

    The Daver is awesomely cute.

  28. On March 6th, 2009 at 10:38 am mumma boo Says:

    Gorgeous! All of you! But I think I’ll just stick to gnoshing on Amelia’s cheeks. And maybe Alex’s. You, Daver and Ben might take a restraining order out on me if I started slobbering on you. 🙂

  29. On March 6th, 2009 at 2:07 pm heather Says:

    OK, seriously, for a split second before I read this, I thought Dave was like 15, and I thought, um, go back – who is THAT guy? No way she has a kid that old.
    You, my dear, are lovely, especially for someone who’s been going through what you have been lately. My hair would be a mess, and food all over the front of me, and that’s just a normal day. And those babes are all very squeezable.

  30. On March 6th, 2009 at 6:14 pm Ginger Magnolia Says:

    OMG you totally did a picture post?! Didn’t you say you don’t do those? Hmmm? Hmmmm? Hmmmmm? Lol, love the pics, hon.

  31. On March 8th, 2009 at 4:11 pm Big's Other Half Says:

    Okay your kids are really cute, but check out that baby you’re holding. I know it’s just the top of the head, but wow!

    I seriously looked at the pic and thought I was a crazy person. I mean who knows their child by the top of their head? Then I enlarged the picture and saw my massively swollen foot in the background (ok, my brother didn’t hurt either).

  32. On March 8th, 2009 at 10:28 pm excavator Says:

    Your babies are beautiful. They have that wonderful expectant look, like they’re just about to nurse. I love that look.

    The Daver is very photogenic. And So. Are. You.

    so there

  33. On March 9th, 2009 at 3:24 pm ScienceMama Says:

    P.S. That pic of you is totally gorgeous!

  34. On March 18th, 2009 at 3:25 am cardiogirl Says:

    Um, that’s you at four or five weeks postpartum? And you think you need to go on a diet?

    You look awesome! (Found you through Drboymom) Keep up the good work!
