Project 365: Days 1-8, 2011

Last week, Jenny at The Rigney’s posted her new year’s resolution: to take a photograph of each day of 2011, and then post the collection photos each Saturday. She’s calling it “Project 365”. I thought this seemed like a do-able and fun way to document the year, so I thought I’d take part. Anyone care to join me?

Alrighty then. Without further ado, I present this first weeks little collection of (not-awesomely taken) photos:

January 1: Star Wars Guys meet Stroller

January 2: Decorating a Trader Joe’s Giant Ginger Bread Man

January 3: My new teapot and my pretty tea-cup β€” companions I have become quite well-acquainted with in recent days (p.s. I am new to tea β€” anyone have any recommendations?)!

January 4: One of my favorite little smiles.

January 5: S & the Boppy β€” S & W discovered the boppy pillow and wondered what it was, so I used a couple of S’s dollies to demonstrate how it helps mommy hold baby. A few minutes later this is what I saw. πŸ™‚

January 6: Um, oops. Didn’t take any pictures on January 6. #firstweekfailure #thisisnttwitterbuti’mgoingtousehashtagsanyway

January 7: I would love to use this sweet photo of my boy…


…but the photo below more accurately documents my mothering this week. It’s my children watching Blues Clues. Or Wonderpets. Or Barney. Or Dora. Or something. Which they did a lot of this week. This is what happens when mommy is 8 months pregnant, kids decide they’d rather not nap for 3 days in a row, and when you have a new AppleTV/Netflix streaming subscription (which, right now, is feeling like a *fabulous* invention). Hmmm. Oh well. Just bein’ real! πŸ™‚

January 8: Beautiful Gifts from Beautiful Friends β€” This morning some dear friends of ours stopped by and dropped off some beautiful gifts she made for baby N, including a beautiful hat/booties she crocheted. I was so touched by her generosity β€” she is so gifted! And check out how eerily-well the hat/booties match the little dress I had just bought for baby! Don’t they look like they were made to go together?!

****

So that’s what I have to share for my week in photos. What about you? Up to the challenge of Project 365? I’d love to have you join me!

  1. Love it! So glad you’ve joined me! πŸ™‚

  2. Great idea, and I must say for a mother of “almost” three kiddies, an ambitious goal! Enjoyed the pictures so much. Samantha’s smile is contagious and little baby N’s new outfit too cute for words.

  3. Hi N! I just darted over from jenny’s therigneys to see another “week in pictures” and I think you did great! Your children are precious, and congratulations on Baby N! I say don’t feel bad about tv–my Norah just met tv for the first time this winter–after her sister was born! You are 8 mo. pregnant, give yourself a break! πŸ™‚ Since moving to England my afternoon tea ritual has really taken off, so I wanted to comment on your tea question and just say, try PG Tips with a splash of milk and a pinch of sugar if you want the real deal. Bless you and keep up the lovely work!

    • Thank you for the comment, encouragement & tea tips! I will try them out! Also, baby “N” stands for “Norah”, so…excellent taste in names! Haha. πŸ™‚ God bless & thanks for stopping by!
