Project 365 {week 8}

Hopefully this week’s round up of photos can be drama-free.


Although it does have my son using a knife and a bumper on a crib.

I guess I am just setting myself up for the trolls.

February 19: Eddie helps daddy make banana pancakes (with a butter knife)

February 20: Day off for midwinter I got my hair cut and colored.

February 21: I have another day off for midwinter break so I tackle the itty bitty clothes.

February 22: Mommy/Eddie night = popcorn and jammies

February 23: "play cars with me?"

February 24: unexpected snow day and unexpected gifts in the mail

February 25: A baby will live here again soon.

There it is.

My 2-day work week.

And smothering Eddie with love.

And preparing for Charlie.


About Katie

Just a small town girl...wait no. That is a Journey song. Katie Sluiter is a small town girl, but she is far from living in a lonely world. She is a middle school English teacher, writer, mother, and wife. Life has thrown her a fair share of challenges, but her belief is that writing through them makes her stronger.


  1. I am loving the monkey room.
    Of course I’m a bit biased because of Chunky Monkey and all 😉
    Loving the hair too.
    There is just something about getting a good haircut and colour to make you feel like conquering the world…and the laundry.

  2. Aww! I like the letters over the crib, very cute. Cute haircut as well!

  3. In Montessori schools toddlers use butter knives to cut fruit & spread jam all the time!
    No trolls better say anything about that 😉
    Cute pics.
    Charlies space looks great.

  4. The hair cut looks great, very cute on you! Adorable pictures, love the color of the walls.

  5. You look beautiful, just what you need before the arrival of Charlie. Also, the room is just gorgeous.

    We had our son using butter knives at the age of two. As a teacher, you know this is great for fine motor skills. Awesome!

  6. Everything is looking great! Love the hair!!

  7. It looks like it was a great week!! I luff that baby blanket, too – tres cute!
    And bee tee dubs, even though I lurk more than comment, I thought you should know your blog rocks mah socks. 🙂

  8. I love your new do and itty bitty tiny new born clothes. 🙂

  9. Yay! The letters look fabulous in the room. 🙂 Whew! Good for you for getting a new ‘do before the big day. My splurge the week before baby is a spa pedicure.
