Ode to the Smart Phone

{Mckenna      &     Summer}

Its 2013. 
I am quite sure my husband and I were one of the last hold-outs to switch over to Smart Phones and even upgrade to a data plan.  This just happened a few weeks ago.  
Seriously.

I opted for the iPhone5 and have not been disappointed yet! 
Which brings me to the above snapshot of my little peanuts, almost 3 months old!  After bath time yesterday I thought they looked uber-cute in their Apple jammies so I propped them in the corner of the couch and grabbed my phone.  

I must admit the iPhone5 takes pretty nice photos!  When I don't have time to snatch my SLR for a quick shot, I think phone pics will do nicely!  

AND
There are these things called eBooks and eAudiobooks!  I read an entire book *on my phone* in 12 days.  Yes, mostly while nursing babies... but I did it!  And no short novella, either!  Diana Gabaldon is my favorite author at the moment.  I hadn't yet listened to The Scottish Prisoner, so I downloaded the eBook via my local Library App post-haste for a 14 day rental!  The paper book is over almost 600 pages so I consider it quite the accomplishment. I haven't finished a book of that length in over 3 years - thanks to my life as a mommy.
So, Thank You Apple, for allowing me to take decent pics, download books, listen to books even, and keep up on my FB and Etsy, too... all in the palm of my hand.  Did I mention there's a Target App too?  

~~~~~~~

Thank you for listening to my ramblings.
A new quilt has been started so I hope share that progress soon.  After all, this is a sewing blog, right?

This is a great pix!! I love my I-phone too. Took it to the grocery store with my list on "notes" Just erased the items as I got them...It is so wonderful. Your girls are terrific.

Oh my goodness, they are adorable! And I wouldn't get any reading done as a mom without my smartphone to sneak a few pages here and there!

Well guess what? I have NEVER owned a cell phone. Ever. Smart or otherwise.

Your babies are adorable!

How was the book? I'm in a book rut and am looking for a good book or two for the summer.

Cute babies! I still use a stupid phone, but DH has a smart phone.

Kathy said...

My DH is pushing hard for a smart phone over the last few months...reading your post and seeing your adorable baby pic via iPhone makes me ready to give in soon. Thanks for the extra push

Dawn said...

Oh my gosh your girls are adorable! And yes I, too, love my iPhone! My life is on my phone. Never thought that would happen. lol

Cute overload!!, I too am looking at a smart phone. I have been with a stupid phone for far too long..and I think it's rubbing off on me .

Marcia R said...

That has to be one of the cutest pics I've EVER seen! Glad you're getting some reading in. There are not a lot of things you can do during the many hours of nursing your babes, but it is the most precious time you'll spend in your life.

Cuteness galore, I still am using a "smat-enuf" phone!

Your children are beautiful. I have 22 yr old twins & 16 yr old triplets. It was just a moment ago that they were this small. Enjoy!

Beautiful babies! Good for you for nursing twins too.. I'm sure it's a little more challenging than one! I personally love the ebook & audiobook apps on my phone & the fact that I can download them from my library is a terrific bonus.
