Project 365: January 8-14, 2012

This week, the thing I realized I miss most about doing a picture (or 12) a day is getting my camera out for “ordinary” life.

This week, I tried to capture not just an event that summed up our day, but maybe just something that made me smile about the day.

January 8: coloring and stickers and little hands, oh my


January 9: Haircut day. Why is it he looks about 10 years older after a haircut?


January 10: homemade veggie beef soup and homemade cinnamon rolls. Because we can.


January 11: The couch is drying. Because there was puke on it from the boy. And no, that is not puke in the middle; that is velcro with papertowel in it.


January 12: Recovery at home with daddy.


January 13: 30 1/2 weeks pregnant. 60 days until Charlie is here.


January 14: lots of snow means we make lots of cookies, right?


What were the highlights of your week?

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. Wait a second! Are we due like the same exact day??? March 26th for me. (I’m not a whiz at math or calendar days so I figured I’d just ask you haha.) You look absolutely adorable! I’ve been thinking it’s about time I post a preggo pic too but I’m afraid everyone will say, “Hey! What did you do with Eden?! EAT her?!”

    Seriously, this is my 3rd child and I’m in my mid-30’s. Now *that* is some math I can easily do. It equals boobs cubed and a butt squared, and a tummy to the tenth degree. Hahaha… oh.

    Well now I sound like I’m all angular or something. :/

  2. I love just getting a glimpse into your every day. Also, little hands and stickers? It’s not possible to get much cuter.

  3. he looks ready to meet the world!

    Hope you’re feeling ok

  4. That’s what joy looks like right there.

    (Well, except for the crying couch, maybe.)

    Lucky boy, lucky mama, lucky family.

    (Poor couch.)


  5. YES. YES. I got a belly shot.
    It was about damn time.
    Just sayin.
    How dare you keep me waiting like this…hee hee.

  6. I need more cinnamon rolls in my life.

    Your baby belly is so cute.

  7. If you can ever figure out why kids look older, after a haircut, can you share? Because I remember, the first time CJ had a haircut, I really wanted them to put his overgrown hair back. He just looked way too old for his age.
