Project 365 {week 30}

This was the week of do all the things because I am going away for a BIG weekend.

July 21: Starting the week with a lazy Sunday.

July 22: My classroom was part of a vandalism spree. The damage wasn't as bad as most, but there are now some new expenses I didn't have before.

July 23: After a long day of cleaning up vandalism debris, this guy? Oh this guy and the climbing.

July 25: Before I left for BlogHer, Eddie asked me if I could paint his toes the same color as mine so we could "remember each other" over the weekend.

July 26: BlogHer sessions and expo and parties, oh my!

July 28: BlogHer knows how to party...and how to wear me right out.

I have all the FEELINGS about BlogHer to share, but I don’t have words for them yet.

It was a whirlwind of wonderful.

But right now, I have to acclimate back to the “real world” of mothering, freelance deadlines, teacher stuff, and wife-ing.

And someone needs to get some darn groceries around here.

Oh. That would be me.

Project 365 {week 20}

If it weren’t for Instagram, I am sort of positive I would fail at Project 365.

As usual, pics taken with the DSLR are marked with a *

The week had more happen than this, but I was either wrangling two kids and couldn’t get my phone out…

or I was forgetting to practice with my camera.

We were busy.

Again.

*May 13: Mother's Day. BIGGEST. SMILE. EVER.

*May 14: Charlie is learning that he has hands. flurry of blurry.

May 15: Still looks so little in the bounce seat

*May 16: Baby presents from Sew Curly Designs!

May 17: I cannot stop eating these, so I need to stop making them.

May 18: Skipped nap to go to final Wyoming Park pep assembly with me.

*May 19: when did this Big Kid move into my house and start searching my fridge?

This week Charlie also had his 2 month Well Child Checkup.

At nine weeks he is 12 lbs, 9 oz., 24.5 inches long, with a 41 cm head.

(for reference he was 8 lbs, 10 oz, 21.5 inches at birth)

(at the same age, Eddie was 14 lbs, 25.5 inches, with a 43 cm head)

We grow ’em big in Sluiter Nation.

This week we could also finally get my brothers and their families together to celebrate my dad’s 62nd birthday.

Three weeks late.

Cort’s best friend from high school (and really, one of my very best friends too), was in town from Denver.

Life is busy, but so good.

 

Project 365 {Week 17}

I am getting seriously annoyed that the weeks are flying by so quickly.

But they are so full…of joy…of laughter…of frustration…of tears…

of poop…of spit up…

of cuddles…of hug…of kisses…

did I mention laughter?

Oh yeah.

April 22: Bath night for my stinky boys

April 23: My "summer" drink

April 24: started my DSLR class. (which makes this picture ironic)

April 25: Eddie is home with me and Charlie, so we hit Target. He gets trucks for being a good helper.

April 26: Pure Awesome in the mail from a hot Canadian chick who is now less one gall bladder.

April 27: Another day home with both boys

April 28: Lots of picture hanging.

How sad is it that I started a DSLR course this week and only two of my seven pics are taken with it?

It’s sad.

Thank goodness for my phone or this project 365 would be dang bust!

I also realize there is a lack of baby pictures to ogle; I apologize for that.

Next week I will be better.

In the meantime, happy anniversary to my parents.

Thirty-nine years is nothing to sneeze at, if you ask me.

Project 365 {week 13}

Ah, Week 13 on April Fools Day.

You would think there was a joke or prank here, but nope.  I am too tired for that.

So just enjoy our week.  We did.

March 25: Sleeping babies are cute...but they don't like camera flashes.

March 26: Day before my birthday...Cort and the boys give me my gift.

March 29: Just a couple brothers hanging out.

March 31: brotherly breakfast bottle

Also this week?  I successfully put on “real” pants.  And they were a little loose.

Oh yeah.

I’m almost to what I was pre-Eddie.  Which is about 15 pounds lighter than I was pre-Charlie.

I’m pretty proud of myself.

And I haven’t even been able to exercise yet.

High fives all around.

Project 365 {Week 10}

Otherwise known as our last week as a family of three.

As I mentioned yesterday, this week has been full of chaos and stress.

But I didn’t take pictures of chaos OR stress because that is not what I want to remember about this week.

March 4: Lovely friends let us borrow a bassinet for Charlie.

 

March 5: Baby bottles are washed and ready to go

 

March 6: new quilt and pillows made just for Eddie by his great grandma Sluiter

 

March 7: Eddie pulls on my boots and informs me "I mommy. This my coffee. I go to work now."

 

March 8: new (to me) diaper bag!! (thanks for the deal, Jill!)

 

March 9: My last day of work for the school year

 

March 10: We fill up the "free books" shelf with your donations!

 

This week we begin a  new chapter in Sluiter Nation.

A family of four.

Can’t wait to share with you all.
